New member from Oregon

Hi! New member of the forum here. My husband and I bought a 24' Cargo Mate Toy Hauler that was modified to fit our 16.5' kayaks. We travel with 2 to 3 labs. When you have a pack of dogs, property owners/hotels aren't too excited to let you rent from them even after we tell them that they are fully trained service dogs. We decided to get a trailer or small RV however we couldn't squeeze our kayaks in. We were at the RV show when we ran across Cargo Mate which had a toy hauler modified for motorcycles which was very cool. That is when we decided we would get a toy hauler designed especially for us. Anyone who travels with toys should give this some thought.

It took forever to get the trailer and we missed some events which was disappointing. And after picking up the toy hauler, we were a little disappointed at the lack of quality on the build. We have spent a few months fixing things and plan our first outing next week. We live in Oregon which has so many things to offer including lots of lakes, rivers, and ocean to paddle in. We are looking forward to camping and kayaking! If anyone out there knows of quiet, private camping spots on water in Oregon, please let me know.

I found this website by accident while researching solutions to problems with our toy hauler. This is a great website and I wish we would have found it prior to our purchase.

Welcome and congrats on the unit.
How come the dealer didn't fix issues under warranty ?

to the forums! Hopefully you will be able to fully enjoy your trailer because Oregon is so pretty! Visiting Oregon is on my to-do- list for the future.

Thanks for the warm welcome. We could barely get the dealer to return our calls. Some of the problems were due to cheap parts which we replaced, moving things to a better location, or unlevel doors, windows, and cabinets which nothing can be done to repair. We just wanted to get out there with our trailer and start having fun. We are still waiting on an answer from the dealer regarding the axle issue. That is one repair that we cannot do ourselves.

Oregon is one of those places that should be on everyone's bucket list. I lived in KY and came out for a vacation. A few months later I moved here. There is so much to do, if you like the great outdoors.

Troyt, hopefully you can find a little time to enjoy Seaside and the surrounding area.
