New Toy Hauler

Just purchased my first toy hauler. XLR Thunderbolt. 40X12. Excited. Will take delivery next Saturday. Anyone have one of these? If so, how do you like it!

Welcome to the FRF. I have a XLR 386x12 2012. There is a thread that is just for XLR's if you wish to thumb though it. Can't think of any off the top of my head that have a 40x12.

Happy Camping from VA

It has a bath in the man cave like a class c. All in one. Pretty nice, though.

Exactly! We went from a 31ft Class C to the XLR 35x12. It is an inch shy of 40ft. Way longer than my DH wanted, but not much longer than if we would have gone with the XLR with the extra bath in the man cave! I know it would have been a benefit back there! We use that back door more often than the front door! Love it!

YIPPEEEEE!!!! Isn't that instant hot water awesome?!? It is great to do dishes or take a shower without waiting for the water to heat! I love that! Did you see the blue light in the shower? Very cool ambiance! Please post pics!!

Congrats from Korea!
How does a toy hauler work? I've seen the pics from the dealer/mfr., but never a detailed shot of where you put ATVs, etc.
What about the gas smell?
My friends that are in the states have class C toy haulers, or separate trailers behind their class A rigs.
I wish... but my body is too old for toys. Too many toys when I was young! LOL
