He really should go out to some RV dealers, or even better, some RV shows, to get an idea of what he likes, and the available options/sizes, and pricing. There are many manufacturers that make toy haulers, and he just needs to decide on his own. I will say that Forest River is the parent company to the greatest majority of those out there now, and the greatest majority of us on this forum are very happy with our F.R. products. Good Luck on HIS decision!!!

I've seen some mighty nice TT toy haulers and some super tandem and tri-axle 5th wheels. It's one of those things that a person has to spend quality time looking over what's available and what his or her needs are.
I always thought the plain furniture (rap around couches) looked to be very uncomfortable. But to each his own, right?
Best of luck to your friend.

Work and Play, may not be the nicest as far as comfort, but it is rated to haul more weight per foot than any other make I know of. They are built tough, and are very heavy per foot empty also, which should tell you something about their construction. Also do as others have said, and determine what your needs are.
