If you take your ATV, motorcycle, jet ski, or other "toy" out often, you may want to invest in a custom toy hauler. Having a toy hauler custom made, rather than relying on a standard towing trailer, can ensure the trailer fits your equipment in particular. This will also ensure it's large enough for accessories you bring with you on holiday while not being so large that you waste fuel during each trip.
While a custom toy hauler manufacturer can suggest features to consider for your needs in particular, you might note a few trailer features here that can often ensure your equipment is protected. These features will also ensure that the trailer looks its best!
Typically you keep your ATV or other equipment running in order to drive it into the toy hauler. If there is no roof vent on the trailer, however, this can mean exhaust being trapped inside. This can be very unhealthy for you when you open the trailer to unload the item, and this might also increase the risk of the equipment's exhaust getting clogged, since it can't properly vent air. Choose a trailer with an adequate roof vent that will remove that exhaust and keep both your equipment and you safe from any build-up of fumes and emissions.
Smooth exterior skin
The outside of a toy hauler should be smooth, meaning no rivets or bolts. This will give the trailer a very upscale look and will protect the equipment you're hauling. Humidity, rain, and snow might make their way into the trailer through seams, whereas a smooth skin offers more protection from outside weather. Those connected areas might also be more prone to coming apart, especially if you drive over very rough roads, whereas a smooth skin is more durable.
Nitrogen seeps through rubber less easily than air, which makes nitrogen-filled tyres a good choice for a toy hauler. The more weight on a trailer's tyres, the more pressure on the air in those tyres, and the more likely that air is to leak through tyre rubber. Nitrogen-filled tyres on a heavy trailer will then need filling less often than standard air tyres. You may need to have the tyres refilled at a tyre store if and when they do get soft, and you may also need to keep a canister of nitrogen with you in case of sudden flats, but this investment can be worth the durability of nitrogen versus standard air tyres.Share
