Toy hauler info

We're looking for a toy hauler and would love to stay in the Forest River family. Vengeance, Vengeance Touring, and Thunderbolt are a few we have looked into. Is the basic construction the same?

We looked closely at the vengeance too. We finally decided on the Wolfpack 24pack14+. The bed is smaller than the vengeance but we thought that we had a little more room for the toys and liked the placement of the TV better (not that the tv is critical when camping). Ultimate goal is two Harley’s and two Hobie Outbacks when we retire and try to head across country for a few weeks at a time. Just another model to consider.

What do you plan to put in the garage? There are a couple of very nice toy haulers that will only carry one bike or a golf cart that you might overlook. Might not be what your looking for but for some another option. Good luck on your search.

We have a Vengeance Touring 39R12 and we love it. Tons of room, super big kitchen and a patio.

Cons would be that it's HUGE! Triple axle, almost 44 feet from nose to tail and you need a dually to tow it. Our grandkids go with us a lot, so it works well for us. 12 foot garage is very roomy. I know that some one on this forum hauls two Harley trikes in his.

I own a Wolf Pack 25 pack 12 and love it, have had great luck with it so far, no major issues, but the walls are not aluminum. I don't believe the Wolf Packs are built with aluminum walls, unless the other poster got Gel coat walls and they build those differently.

We picked the 24PACK14+ as well after looking at an overwhelming amount of haulers. We liked the position of the TV and the tie down points better than some of the others we looked at.

We purchased the same one, but I didn't do my homework when I bought my BoltItOn rack. I assumed due to spending some time in friend's larger toy hauler that there would be room for my bikes aft of the second set of D-rings in the "garage" area. Wrong! The WolfPack is a smaller unit and the bikes will be all the way into the kitchen area...

Most of them we looked at that were within the range of what we could tow were set up with no separate garage. We would have needed a new bigger truck and a hauler a couple sizes bigger to get the separate garage area.

Wolfpack 23Pack 15 here. Bought it for the large living area and slide out. Holds my 2 seater golf cart fine with room to spare. Is 15' kitchen counter to ramp door, 98" wide in the back from side to side and 71" in between the bottom of the kitchen slide and the curb side of the trailer. And has the ramp patio.

Here is a link to a full length walkthrough.

Gus what is your loaded tongue weight?

That is an ultra cool towing photo!

I didn't actually weigh my tongue weight but my trailer completely loaded is 9500 lbs with the golf cart and ready to camp. Because the garage is so long (15') and I can either load the golf cart (800lbs.) forward, up by the cabinets or back towards the ramp. That gives me a lot of room to adjust the tongue weight. One of the benefits of toy haulers.

My GMC Denali HD has a cargo carrying capacity of 2233. With the wife and I, the dog and daughter we are looking at 450 lbs in cab, dropping me to 1783 left for tongue weight. IF I used that much, that's right at 18.7%, prior to putting the W/D bars on.

I towed it empty home from 90 miles away through Dayton and Cincy rush hour along with fully loaded to my local campground 20 miles away and she towed great with the golf cart forward and half filled with water. I do plan on getting the tongue weight checked next time I'm fully loaded for camping but we were in a hurry and on the way to the campground so I just went for a quick drag across the scales and an unhitch on the single pad. More to see what the wife had snuck in the camper as much as anything ;-)

This spring I'm planning some longer trips through some of the hills of Eastern Ky. and maybe even a Smokies trip to give it a better test but I feel very comfortable with the truck/trailer balance and handling and being within safety limits. If I get surprised with a higher tongue weight than I think I have, I'll start parking the golf cart further back in the trailer to lighten it.

Well, I like your 23pack15 with the kitchen slide. Ours is basically the same without the slide.

Thanks! Yea, I really like the extra room the slide gives and I felt like the 71" wide with the slide in was still plenty of space. I pull the golf cart as close to the passenger side as I can and we can still get in the fridge, sink, bathroom and bedroom. That's an often overlooked thing when people buy RV's with slide outs. Being able to pull over and get in the fridge to make a sandwich or get some drinks, use your own bathroom, take a nap or sleep somewhere without opening the slide is a big deal in my eyes. Nice to be able to load without opening slides also or throw your groceries in on the way to the destination.

Appreciate the compliment!
