Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

When it comes to trailers I always look around but eventually end up back at "Feather lite". I have a 30' which I had them build six inches higher and I had the whole thing made of Aluminum, even the floor. That made it so light I have to put sandbags in it to keep it down on the road, ok not really with the sand bags but it's major light compared to the same in steel.. I'll try to find some pic's..


Now I pull mine with a RV usually but this place is close to home thats why you see my truck..
Also I know it's not a toy hauler but thats cause I have a rV, but Feather lite makes "toy haulers" out of aluminum and will do anything you want..

We have a Weekend Warrior Superlite, FS2300. While it does claim to be half ton towable, you may be pushing it after loading the RZR into it. It will fit, I put mine in along with a Honda TRX90 that I manage to barely squeeze into the kitchen.

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I have a Weekend Warrior Toy Hauler Super light FS2500. I generally pull it with a 3/4 ton GMC Duramax 2500 HD diesel but I have pulled it several times with my wives Escalade purely out of necesity. It gets terrible gas mileage pulling the trailer but it does just fine as far as power and stability. The Toy hauler is made primarily of aluminum and it only weighs 9,000 lbs. fully loaded (Full of water, gas, luggage, Rhino and dirt bikes.
A great trailer that fits my rhino and two dirt bikes no problem. And my Rhino has a huge bumper and a spare tire on back that make it two feet longer than stock. It also sleeps 9 adults comfortably. But if you are going to pull with a 1/2 ton then I would for sure get sway bars and a really good trailer brakes (Tekonsha is best). If it were me I would hold off on the toy hauler purchase until you get a bigger truck like a 3/4 ton. Your family and all other families on the road would be much safer if you did so. 3/4 ton trucks have bigger brakes and stiffer springs that make towing heavy loads much safer.

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

Yeah, I was looking into sway bars, air bags, strong trailer brakes, etc.

It is the 5.6L 2005 Nissan Titan LE.

I am thinking something small and light, and not for cross-country or severe hauling, but just light woods use, freeway, basic camp grounds, etc.

I have found some smaller toy haulers dry at 4.5k... With fluids, gear, etc, it should be around 8k right?

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I have a Weekend Warrior FS 2500 as well and I would agree with what benhoopes said. I've pulled mine with a 1/2 ton Avalanche for two years. It gets the job done, but its hard on the truck, very slow up hill and the trailer pushes the truck around. When I have the tanks full in mine the hitch on the Avalanche isn't strong enough to transfer weight to the front of the vehicle so the rear end sags, even with the weight distribution bars cranked up as far as they can go.

I'm upgrading to a 3/4 or 1 ton this spring.

What ever you do don't trust the weight sticker on the trailer. Everyone I know with a toy haller says they weigh at least 1000lbs more then the sticker. My buddy has a Desert Fox and it weighed 2500lbs. more then claimed after taking it straight to the scales from the dealership with no cargo and empty tanks.

I'm sure you can get by with your truck and most of the "1/2 ton tow-able" trailers, but you'll probably want to upgrade your truck before long.

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

Another perhaps to consider is Forest River's "Work and Play" --

Perhaps their WPT18LT

Dry weight is 5072 -- GVWR is 7920

Cargo capacity of 2406 pounds

This has a cargo length of 10' - 9"

This also has full living quarters.

Just a thought ...........

I got a WP 28'. Check out my rig. It's too big for a 1/2 ton but they're built stout.

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I have a 23ft Fleetwood Gearbox. I pull it with 2007 tundra. Your titan should do just fine. Mine weighs in around 10,000 fully loaded. It's not the lightest toy hauler, but it is build well and I can use it almost year round.

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I have a 2008 Skyline Rampage 199 (19'). I can fit my RZR and both my 450r quads in it and all my gear. It doesnít have the up-front bed so you can basically drive the RZR into the kitchen... I like the kitchen up front anyway so people going in and out of the door donít have to walk by the person cooking...

I tow it with a 2008 Tundra fully loaded combined its just over 10,000lbs but dry its 5,970 (with upgrades included in weight). Skyline actually weighs each trailer AFTER upgrades are installed. So the sticker weight is the actual weight.

Dry Weight = 5970
Cargo Capacity = 2984
Fresh Water = 980
Fuel = 160
Propane = 68

TOTAL = 10,162lbs

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I've been looking into light toy haulers as well ... I've got a 2007 1/2 ton Dodge 1500 quad cab. There are a few pop-up trailers w/toy storage areas that look interesting. They're pretty light and your toys stay outside on an exterior loading area so the living quarters don't get dirty and filled with gas fumes. I think it was Starcraft & Fleetwood that make them ... maybe Weekend Warrior as well. You may want to check out their websites. Good luck!

Ron ...

Re: best light toy hauler for 1/2 tons that can fit a Rzr (mainly hieght)??

I actually was looking at one of the Jumping Jack trailers. They are essentially a utility trailer that holds two quads or one RZR and after you unload your toys you can open up a heavy duty tent. The tent canvas is really thick and it has two beds and a fold down table. It also has 7 foot ceilings I think or more...

I was REALLY close to just getting one of those instead of a toy hauler. You could just get a separate generator and a portable A/C unit if you needed it and a portable toilet and stuff...but it’s really light and can be towed through rough terrain. You can also pull the tent part out of the trailer and fold up the walls to create a work trailer to haul around stuff for yard work or whatever.

Pretty cool! Just be sure to buy a Honda Generator so the whole camp doesn't have to listen to it. You can buy a 6 million watt Gen for $299 but don't. They're noisy!
