    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.

    Do the current line of Toy Haulers (driven) with two MC in it have the power to pull say a 2 dr jeep?

    That is a really nice size unit. I wanted to look at that particular model at the Hershey PA show last fall but they "ran out of room" so they didn't bring it with them. :-( I like the queen bed in the front. A lot of haulers that small have some sort of fold out or drop down bed so you can't just stop and sleep while traveling.

    What I meant was a Toy Hauler with its own motor powerful enough to haul two mc in the garage part and pull a Jeep behind it.

    Otherwise I would need to sell the jeep and buy a truck to pull one.

    Its got a soft floor I need to replace. Shouldn't be an expensive repair, but pretty time consuming.

    With the restrictions placed on us by a small truck and a big bike, and wanting it to be comfortable for many weeks on the road, this was the only toy hauler that fit the bill. We were pretty lucky that KZ even made something like this when no one else was.

    The quality has been good so far with the only problem being a failed C/O detector that has nothing to do with KZ.

    One thing to watch out for though is if you like to dry camp like we do, the fresh water tank can't be filled without using the water pump. No gravity fill. It appears that KZ and other manufacturers are deleting this option. Makes no sense at all to have to run a pump for so long at a campground to fill the tank while not plugged in. Sure takes a lot out of the battery and forces you to charge the battery with a generator more often.

    Are you sure you need to run the pump?
    I have a new KZ camper and it does not have a direct fill port like my old pop up did either.
    However it doesn't need the pump running to fill the tank.
    I have a valve near the pump that you simply open and the water pressure from the source pushes it to the tank.

    I got mine with a soft floor too make sure you don't have a roof leak.


    The floor is.
    lauan ply
    foam
    plastic sheet material

    All laminated with white glue.
    add water glue lets go

    I fixed the roof.

    Cut vinyl flooring out at the walls / cabinets

    Cut small holes 3/8" in lauan were it delaminated from foam and put liquid nails in holes to re bond it.

    Got some glued down bamboo flooring at a big box store and installed it over ply.

    The laminated wood helped span the softer area.

    Added trim to bathroom (original floor ok there).


    Its been fine for 4 years

    You are correct, I didn't word it right.

    I should have said that when you are in your "dry campsite" and you want to add water to your freash water tank after a few days of usage, you can't just pour it in from a jug through a gravity feed port. You have to run the pump and syphon from a water jug you filled at the campgrounds water tap so you are using up battery power to run the pump. You can hook up the trailer again and take it to the water supply, but that is a pain to do once you are all set up and leveled.

    The old way of just poring in the water from your water jug through a gravity fill is a better way for those who prefer Provincial or State park campgrounds that usually don't have water at each site.

    I'm not set on a size yet. I just don't want to tow a big one into the mountains. Especially in the winter.

    Let's start with my first inquiry:
    Which brand is known for having the highest head room?

    Oh, good question! I need to know this, along with one that has a tall shower so I can actually take a shower! I am 6'8" tall, very important to me.

    I'm a petite 6'5". :rofl

    Being tall is a blessing most of the time. Other times times you can tell that the world was made for small people. Cars and bikes, airplanes, busses, dinner tables, home appliances, the list goes on. Hell, most toilets are like a kids podi. (sp?)

    The good part, I can say:
    "No, a KTM990 ADV R is not a tall bike."
