As we grow, so do our toys. Knowing the measurements and weights of your recreational toys will help you determine what type of toy hauler you need. Or if you already have a toy hauler, shop for outdoor toys based on the size of your RV's garage. You don't want to discover that you kids' ATVs won't fit into the garage the night before your big family vacation. Use the information below to answer the question, Will my toys fit in my garage?

The first thing you want to consider is the loading capacity of your toy hauler. Find the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and the Unloaded Vehicle (UVW), sometimes called dry or ship weight. Subtract the UVW from the GVWR and you'll have the amount that's left for cargo and occupants. This means you, all your stuff, and your toys. Make sure that it’s going to be able to handle all the weight you’ll need.
Now let's look at the area within the garage to ensure you can fit your toys inside. Typically the interior width of a toy hauler ranges from 7.5-8 feet and the length is usually between 7-18 feet. The most popular models range in length from 10-14 feet.
People pull all sorts of toys around in toy haulers, from kayaks and canoes to ATVs and golf carts. The most common toys we see being loaded into toy haulers are motorcycles, ATVs, side by Sides, dune buggies, and snowmobiles. We've gathered some common measurements below to help you determine just what will fit inside your toy hauler's garage.
