It certainly is. More info please. I have a smaller 2001 doublecab Taco that probably has the same driveline as you. I'd like to sell our class A and would consider something like that IF I didn't need a bigger truck.

That would be perfect for me too, nice size. How are you going to keep the chairs still? Since it has an air conditioner, does it have a generator (not to run the AC)? Furnace?

More details on yours please, like the length you decided on, weight if you know? How wide is the door (would an ATV fit, I'm gettin' older and going to have to go that route eventually)?

My Tacoma has the factory tow package which includes engine oil and trans oil coolers with a tow rating of 6500 lbs.

The chairs ride up on top of the bed and with a little padding to protect the wall, don't move during towing.

Honda 2000 watt generator runs everything except the A/C when dry camping at state or provincial parks. If it is really hot we look for a RV park with 30 amp service.

The opening is 51" so I believe ATVs will fit.
The trailer is 22' 10" long in total and weights about 5100 lbs with everything including the bike. (water tank stays empty until we arrive at our destination)

Surprisingly similar looking trailers for being made by different manufacturers.

Go to a few RV shows and you'll see this quite often. Popular layouts are quickly copied throughout the industry.

Many Brands are owned by one company. Check out how many brands Keystone "owns"

Forest River evidently has so much capacity that they make trailers for others, so I am sure there is some commonality between all their stuff.

Don't know how much room those two bikes would need but with my table and chairs stowed, the width of the cargo area is 5' 7" wide. If you were to leave the original fold up sofa that comes with the unit attached to the wall, I think the cargo width would be reduced to just under 5 feet.

That right there makes my nipples hard because I am so tired of not having a decent office.
