New to forum and new to Toy Haulers..

Let me start off by saying I'm new to this forum and new to owning a toy hauler. I recently purchased a XLR 27HFS and I love it!! with that being said I do have one question. Can I load my 2 atv's (1000 lbs) in my toy hauler withouth it being hitched up to my truck?

Personally I wouldn't.
While you may be able to get away with it if "you're careful", I would guess that whatever stabilizing jacks you have and your tongue jack won't tolerate it for long.

Welcome to the forums!
Congrats on the new unit!

Can I make a guess here and say you want to store your atvs in the th and want to be able to take them in and out as needed without being hitched up?

Imo the rocking loading and unloading would stress the jacks/stabs. But as stated if you went very slow ...... maybe.

It wouldn't be for storeing but for loading the camper the night before and having to use my truck the next day for work or store runs before we hit the road. How about possibly hitching up, loading the atv's, drop stabilizers and tounge jack, and unhitching?

I think that will be fine. Chock the wheels front and back before dropping the jacks and unhitching. A static (non-moving load) should be fine.
