Looking for options...

Hey all!
New to the boards here and new to RVing. Been scheming it for years, but finally have a chance to do it. So here I am. :-)
This community is terrific...thank you guys for the sharing of your knowledge here.

My Problem. I have a plan, with a Toy Hauler in mind. I somehow have to get 22 contiguous feet of garage space to put these two vehicles in. It's not the weight of them, it's the length.

Basically this is cutting me out of any Toy Hauler with slides in it.

Trying to figure a way to tow one bike *behind* the 5th wheel toy hauler.
That's starting to be a train there. :-(
Anyone do this, or am I just asking for trouble?

Any direction most appreciated.

You mention a 5th wheeler with a 22' long garage. That's quite a bit of space out of the length of a 5th wheeler! If you look for a Class A toy hauler, you could use the garage for the motorcycle(s) inside and tow the other vehicle 4 down or even on a dolly if needed. Most states limit length to 65' combined length, although seldom does it become an issue unless an accident draws attention to the over-length violation. Also, most 5th wheelers aren't built on frames beefy enough to add a class 3 or higher hitch on the end of the frame. It would be subject to pretty serious 'seesaw' motions over the extreme lengths behind and in front of fulcrum points of the set up.

Only some states allow 'triple towing' (I know, it's 2 trailers, but it's called triple towing)
and most of those states are in the west.

Your solution is EASY.

Go to the Showhauler website and see their toy haulers!

And you can still pull a Large Trailer behind.

They build the best ToyHaulers in the business.
