GEE, I've got more questions on which one to get?

I am torn between the Toy Hauler, non-storage one, the storage box in front or the one with the small storage rack in front.

I have a 2011 V6 double cab Tacoma 4X4 automatic with tow package.

I like the floor plan with the permanent rear bed.

1. I'd like the toy hauler, but I think my ATV (400 lbs.) would put to much weight on my hitch. Maximum hitch weight is 350 lbs.

2. The one with the fiberglass storage box in front, but can I secure it so I can keep a generator & other stuff without it getting broken into?

3. The one with the small storage rack in front. Is this rack useful enough to store enough stuff in it?

4. I think the one without any outside storage is out of the question.

All advice is appreciated.

Signed "CONFUSED".

I can't give an opinion as I'm not even sure I know of what you speak of without pictures of what units your talking about.

Btw posts get buried quite fast on this forum sometimes and they just get missed.

Ok I see.

Here's the issue I'd have with the toy hauler depending on what your towing it with.
A) your going to overload the capacity from your own admission albeit by 50 lbs.

B) hauling a 400 pound four wheeler is also going to increase your hitch weight by that much also.


If your looking at small trailers to begin with I have to assume your tv doesn't have much capacity.

Ok so you have 1200 lbs to work with.

What's the hitch weight of toy hauler?

From that 1200 lbs you need to deduct...

Passengers, dogs, cats etc etc
Any cargo within truck.
Any and all cargo in the truck bed.
Receiver ball mount.
Tongue weight of trailer no 4 wheeler
Or tongue weight of trailer with four wheeler.

My guess is your going to be way over.
