Half Garage Toy Haulers?

Hey guys. After thinking long and hard about my next camper I have given the fifth wheels with the side door ramp and the half garage a lot of thought. They seem like a good idea and would be practical for me. But the only ones I have found are the cougar 310 srx. Does any other company's make them? Anybody own one with a half garage ? Thoughts on them?Click image for larger version

We don't own anything that would fit in one of those. We have a 800 RZR, Honda Goldwing and Kawasaki KLR650. We don't plan to haul them all at once but the RZR alone takes most of the room, might get the KLR in with it. Full water, fuel and RZR we are right at max weigh. I'd stick with the rear ramp if I am planning on hauling toys.
We have been enjoying our new Shockwave, no wall between garage and living quarters, working out great. More room when we are unloaded and camping.

Good luck with what ever you decide on.

Ya I agree the rear ramp would be better. But no body makes one what will fit my 2 outlander 800s side by side with the larger tires

I can't imagine those side doors being easier than a rear door for what you want to do. I can't fit 2 quads side by side in my Wolf Pack, but I can fit one straight in and the other turned sideways behind it.

I usually only take 1 atv so I figured this would be better

Keystone outback makes a TT that is a front side load toy hauler and the "garage" seconds as a bunk room. front load would greatly increase the tounge weight depending on your truck.

Work and Play might work. Side loaders never have enough room.

Yes.

The misses and I went with the Forrest River 26rr due to budget restraints, we can put two Polaris sportsmans' high lifter 1000s end to end no problem. However; once in no room till you take them out. If I had to do it over I would go with one of the larger 5th wheel type RVs with all the amenities and on board fueling station.

Many of the sites I've been to had trees in the way of the side loading ramps.
Rear loading TH seam to be the way to go .
