I would love some recommendations from those of you who tow Toy haulers. I am looking for something in the 23ft-26ft range (box length). I have seen several that are around 6k dry weight. It will be only my wife and I in the truck (combined 300pounds). I plan to load a 250 dirt bike and 250 atv in the back of the toy hauler (combined 600 pounds). I have towed the dirt bike and atv on a utility trailer with a Mazda 3 up and down the state of California for 6 years so I am very familiar with weight distribution and proper loading. I am not interested in upgrading to a ton until Toyota makes one.

So far I like the Forest River Grey Wolf 26rr, Forest River Wolf Pack 24PACK14+ , and Eclipse attitude 23fib. I have actually been inside the 26rr and do not like how low the ceiling space is and do not like that it has small fresh water capacity. Been inside the 23fib and it was a nice trailer. Have not been inside the 24Pack14+ but it seems to be my favorite of the three trailers.

Any suggestions on other toy haulers or if you guys have experience with any of these three haulers, input would be appreciated.
I have same truck as you and I just put on AirRide bags with the wireless controller and compressor system. Couple things...your ride will change when empty...bouncy and a little stiffer. I have been playing around with pressure to find a sweet spot. So far 18 to 20 lbs seems good with no load. The other thing is if you are ever gonna want to go wheeling in the mud or thru water...forget about it. Putting the bags on means no more off roading. I confirmed this with AirRide, and I am willing to bet its the same with Firestone bags. I already pulled the trigger so I am still swallowing that pill of no mudding or creek surfing. Lastly there is a very limited placement for the compressor...mine ended up in the frame channel in the back drivers side. I am currently fabricating a sheet metal cover for the compressor and the modulator...both are exposed as hell back there. The bags are small and with the internal jounce they are even smaller before you bottom out on the bag. There just isn't much space. If I had it to do again I would throw a 3 inch lift on first, then get a taller bag so I have more travel. Overall I am glad to have the leveling capability, but I gave up so much. Do your own research but at least you can look at mine and see what your dealing with.
Good luck!!
