Small toy hauler trailers are the best fit resources for towing a garage-like space with you on your recreational adventures. They are capable of hauling your favorite toys – ATVs, golf carts, side-by-sides, four wheelers, dirt bikes, motorcycles, mountain bikes, kayaks, canoes, watercrafts, and more – while doubling as a family camping home or office.
Small toy hauler trailers can be towed by a standard SUV or small truck. They have rear or back-side drop down door(s) that are ramps to load and unload your recreational toys. And, although they are small, they are tough and have the special features to help you stay comfortable camping in both on-grid and off-grid areas.

What is GVWR?
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), also known as cargo carrying capacity, is the maximum weight allowed when the small toy hauler trailer is fully loaded. Loaded weight measurement includes all fluids, cargo, equipment, accessories, and passengers. Be mindful not to over exceed the GVWR, as it will threaten the safety of the product’s performance.
Most often, the load capacity of the small toy hauler trailers is designated by weight, not by the volume of the unit. Therefore, note that all the available space in the unit may not be usable when loading the unit.
What is UVW?
Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW) is the estimated average weight of the small toy hauler trailer after being manufactured by the factory and before being filled with personal cargo. The weight includes the small toy hauler trailer’s axle(s), tongues, pins, and LP gas. Other features, like cargo, water, equipment, and accessors, are not included in this weight calculation.
What is the shortest Class-C toy hauler trailer?
Thor makes three of the shortest Class-C toy haulers trailers: Four Winds 22B/22E, Chateau 22E, and Freedom Elite 22FE. They are all around 24 feet long and 8¼ feet wide. They each offer a variety of floor plans and are stocked with living amenities, including bedding, seating, and storage. They will certainly accommodate you and your family to enjoy your camping and recreational activities.
Will a RZR fit a toy hauler trailer?
Yes, there are a number of toy hauler trailers that can fit RZRs. However, the toy hauler needs to be at a least 14 feet wide. It is important to ensure the right fit so that RZRs are securely maintained in the toy hauler trailer.

These small toy hauler trailers have a variety of benefits like towing recreational toys, traversing smoothly and safely over rugged and difficult terrain (like washed-out or sandy roads), costing less in gas and electricity, and are able to be parked in tight locations.
Really the only disadvantage is that the smaller toy hauler trailers are not able to load heavy or big toys, as they do not have as many weight amenities as the larger haul trailers.
Our favorite is the inTech Flyer Discover. It is the most balanced option with a perfect set up to both tow your favorite toy while also being multi-functional and providing space for comfortable camping in all weather conditions. It is also one of the easiest to tow to your most adventurous experiences in remote areas.
We advise you to personally choose the one that best suits you, as it will result in the most enjoyable trips.
