Default Toy Hauler advice

Hey peeps...I'm looking around for a toy hauler preferably 21-23' 2006 or newer. Any makes/models i should stay away from? I've mostly been finding weekend warrior super lite's and attitude trailers that I like but I really don't know what issues they have. Any advice/info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've been told that the '07 and newer WW weren't made as well. That they started cutting corners and not making them as well, as they were losing money because of the economy. The Superlights were made lighter by cutting notches out of the frame, which makes them buckle or twist. This was from TJ camping with us at the beach last weekend. I've been hearing about problems from the superlights for awhile. That said I love my 26 ft '06 WW and although more room would be nice . . . we don't want another payment after the RZR.

We owned an 05 WW FS2300 Superlite we bought in 03. Used the crap out of that trailer. Over the 6 1/2 years - we had lots of little problems and a few bigger ones. We had the tongue replaced after a couple years. The whole front had water damage from the separating of the front cap area. A few minor electrical fixes. While replacing the brake assembly's I noticed the frame between the wheels was cracking on both side so Had to have that welded and gusseted. I dumped the trailer in 09 it had 1200 hours on the genny. We got $9500 for it......

I had friend that bought the early Attitude's that had similar problems but seems by 06 Attitude was building a better trailer.

Really I dont think there is a perfect trailer out there. If you use them you are going to have problems some minor some not. Our Gearbox has had a few minor issues including the whole rear door separating from the trailer but all in all Ive been pretty happy with it so far.


For Price and size I would look at Fun Runner's/ Baja's - Its a basic trailer that has everything you need and I see them for cheap on CL. Ive had a few friends that have owned them and they really liked them.

Thanks guys...no I don't have a diesel. But I have a free half ton "company" truck. I wish I could convince them i need a diesel though. We're looking for something small though because we will be staying in campgrounds a lot of the time and small spots are usually easier to get.

We got rid of our falling apart 07 WW for an 09 Attitude. The front fiberglass cap cracked and had it replaced at the factory. They also fixed what ever little complaints we had at the time. Good company i think.

I liked my Ragen' Trailer and it was a 21'. JB liked his 24' as well I think... Lots of storage for the size, as I recall...

Good luck on your search! Maybe we'll start seeing you back out then .....

I'm finding a lot of rage'n trailers that I like. They seems to be good quality and usually have 150 gallon fresh tank and onan 5500 generators...most trailers that size have about 100 gallon tanks and 4000 generators

For those of you that have dealt with fun cars/th liquidators...do they budge much on the price they're asking? They've had a 22' Stellar for a while that looks decent. http://www.toyhaulerliquidators.com/...24743&dlr1=160
