19RR vs 22RR

My husband and I are looking to purchase a Forest River Toy Hauler but not sure which would be best for us. We have a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext cab and our motorcycle is a 2006 Goldwing GL1800. Any advice?

The 19rr side door opens right into the side of the GW. You will have less than 16" between the door and the bike and with the cabinetry right there we decided that it's too tight for us. The 22 is much better laid out. 26 is even better.

19RR vs 22RR

We first looked at the 22rr. We purchased the 26 rr. Not much weight difference between 22 and 26. We love ours. It has a more roomy feel because lower cabinets and stove and refrig is on one side. I did a few mods on mine and we enjoy it. I have a Honda VTX 1300 dressed out and fits nicely and I can get around it easily.

Go to the thread pimp my 26rr and you can see the different mods that I and others have done to enhance the already great floor plan. There was only about a $1,000 difference between the 22 and 26 when I bought a year ago this week in fact.

If your close to Ohio check out suburban Rv center. Tom will treat you right. I drove from PA to Mansfield Ohio to get mine. I would do it again.

I agree with rmac04401. The 26RR is great and can be used even with the bike on board. It has room for extra cupboards or whatever you want. Any faults found in the 26RR will also be found in the 22RR as a rule.
Pick a dealer who will look after you.

Mine fits and its just enough - 22rr didnt come out till after we had the 19rr for a year But it does fit and Big me can get around it if needed without much problem.

Look at pic looking down at front wheel - alot more room than you think!

Its a Gold wing so it can get wet in the rain - does not need a garage - separate canopy
As soon as we get to a camp site it gets unloaded and stays out.

Bluewoo. Looks good. Did you have to add any floor tie down rings? The 26RR needs an extra set. The extra length of the 26RR makes it larger for towing and storing. I live in ours for 4 months or so doing Habitat builds down south so the extra size is helpful. I stay in Walmarts when traveling so being able to use the kitchen is helpful.
Had my fresh water tank held up stronger by the dealer today.
Take care.

I hauled my 2004 goldwing in both my 19rr and later my 25rr. I would also agree that having the door in the back made it challenging to get around it. Imagine a stop to use the bathroom and grab a drink. It was like an obstacle course. It towed very nicely though and had more storage than my 25rr does. That's because it had a bunk bed and the wardrobe was better.

Last week I sold my goldwing and bought a rubicon. That's so much easier to load. It's time to try something new for awhile.

We bought a used 2012 19wp in May. We haul a Harley ultra classic dresser in it with no problems at all...I'm not sure of the floor plan difference between the 19rr and the 19wp but can use the kitchen and bath with bike in with no problem..we did add two more tie downs. Our tow vehicle is a 2014 Ram 1500 4x4 Big Horn...after a trip to NC from Fla tho we are considering trading to a diesel for the milage and with the 1000 lb bike we are close to weight capacity. Love the toy hauler...happy camping

I think on the 19wp the door is in the middle where the rr has the door way in the back by the ramp. Not having the door across from the kitchen was my biggest complaint. You had to go all the way around the bike to get to the fridge and bathroom with it loaded because the kitchen was on the passenger side. In the wp it's on the drivers side. It's a much better layout IMHO. Still I loved pulling the 19rr down the road. It pulled very nicely.
