Toyhauler

We have decided that a toy hauler would work best for us, carting kayaks and bicycles around. But not sure which brand to go with, we already have a Wildcat so we are happy with Forest River products. But XLR, Voltage, and Fuzion all make a floor plan that we like and each have some better points to each other. Guess what I am asking is with your XLR's did you consider other brands?

Didn't care for those. We didn't care for the placement of the entertainment centers and also didn't care for the shower curtain.

Mine has a shower stall not a curtain you must be looking at lower end units.

We were considering the Cyclone 4100, but ended up going with the XLR 415 because of the floor plan. It has king bed and a ton of storage space in the main living area. Main bathroom has oversized shower with sliding glass doors.

Considered all brands. When I walked into my camper the first time it felt like home. There are pros and cons to all. I'm my case gave up the 1/2 bath for stairs. But love not dealing with a ladder. So my suggestion is to go with what feels like home Because if you are like us it is our second home About 70 nights out of the year. Good luck.

We considered all brands as well and my favorite was the voltage 3795. The master had a king bed and a fireplace not to metion the chaise lounge at the end of the sofa in the living room. But since the garage was our 2 BIG teenage boys' main living area once we setup, the 14' garage in our xlr was most appealing.

The Raptor was our other choice. But after kicking the lower panels on the Raptor, and knocking on the vacuum bonded slide out side walls of the XLR compared to what the Raptor had, we went with the 380AMP. The 1/2 bath in the garage as well made it a better choice for me.
As well if your willing to spend an extra handful for the full body paint as opposed to decals, the unit looks 3 times as good!
