Toy Haulers 5th Wheels / Victoria, TX
Update: I forgot to mention that the Master Suite has a VERY nice Ashley Furniture foam mattress a gel top. The most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. We took the original mattress and put in on one of the other bunks, and then I bought another mattress, better than the original and put it on the other upper bunk. The two pads that came on the upper bunks we moved to the lower bunks, which made them more comfortable. I also for got to mention many other features such as the four seasons door and the patio ramp, and the 3 AC units.
We bought this Cyclone 4018 Toy Hauler brand new and it has been kept in a barn since. The roof is therefore in excellent condition, as is the gel coat, paint and decals.
The RV will sleep 8 people in the back, 2 in the master and one adult or two kids in the loft. That's 11 adults. It has nearly every option including the 5500 watt Onan generator and the Motorhome style 6 point hydraulic leveling system that is so fast you will be opening your first beer while your neighbors are still stacking wood blocks under their leveling jacks. The bathroom? Just wait till your other half sees the residential sized tub and shower fixtures. You can take a real bath!
If you are running on Chinese tires my advice would be to run, don't walk to your local tire dealer and get something reliable. I've already done that, I bought a set of extremely capable commercial truck tires, G rated 14 ply, also made in China by Sailun, and very much the exception to the rule. These are comparable to the very capable Goodyear G614 G rated tire. You need to get off the cheap China bombs or you will be sorry.
This big garage toy hauler makes camping easy. And if you need to take your toys to all the wonderful mountain roads and desert flats and coastal highways while traveling with family or friends you will regret not getting the big garage. There are lots more cool features but the video below really does a better job of showing them than I can.
We recently took a 2 week trip with my elderly mother and the motorcycle and it highlighted the advantages of the 18' garage. Normally if one wants to use the garage as a bedroom then everyday you would have to unload the bike, 4 wheeler, whatever in order to lower the bunk for the night. Then reverse the process in the morning. Not on this unit. We loaded the bike exactly once and unloaded it exactly once because the garage is big enough to stow the bike and still lower one set of bunks (In fact if we were traveling with another couple we could take their bike along and stow both bikes, still leaving room to lower a pair of bunks).So my mom was quite happy in the garage and I was quite happy I didn't have to load and unload the bike every day so she could sleep in the garage! You can't do that in the little garages.
I added a battery to the Rv and both of them are less than 2 months old. One of the nicest features of this unit is the motor coach style hydraulic 6 pt leveling system. At the push of a button you will be leveled and popping the top on your first beer while your neighbors are still stacking wood under their manual crank leveling jacks. The DW will appreciate the central vacumn, no clunky vacuuming cleaner taking up space, just the hose which plugs into the central vac. There is an outside faucet for cleaning the BBQ or dirty shoes.
There's lots more to say about this Rv and this video says it better than I can:
Check out this video review:
The only difference I have noticed between the review and my unit is my recliners are not electric, they were not available at the time; and the garage has a slightly different look. Other than that even the color scheme is the same as my RV.
Update 2: I will consider a trade for a Foretravel ONLY! If you dont have a Foretravel I am not intersted in a trade.
Update 3: I also have the 2013 F450 Platinum, loaded, that i pull the camper with. I will sell it with the camper or after the camper is sold. I will not sell it before the camper is sold so please dont ask. 50K miles.
Update 4: I should also add another upgrade to this RV is the state of the art Flex-Air pinbox i had installed this spring (@$1200). All I can say is, Wow! This should be standard on all big toy haulers. It doesn't eliminate all of the forces transmitted to the truck by the camper but it comes awfully close. The important thing is that it dampens the shocks and smoothes them out to a very comfortable ride. Best upgrade I made to this RV!
Update 5: Did I mention the cell phone amplifier- Wilson 3GX? Top-of-the-line ($400 not including the factory installation) complete with internal and external antennae already installed and ready to go.
Update 6: Last Update, I hope, recently I bought two Dish satellite recievers and the portable dish antenna with stand. I think we used it once. The stand is still in the box. The antenna is automatic, it finds the satellites at the touch of a button. There is only one wire connecting the dish to a reciever. The portable dish is the way to go because you can move it around the campsite to get the tres out of your line-of-sight to the sats. So, 2 recievers, the dish antenna and stand, might as well call em brand new @$600), another cool upgrade to this RV.
