A recent revitalization in retail sales for toy haulers has created many new options for those searching for an RV with garage capabilities.

Thor Motor Coach continues to drive sales with its motorized toy hauler, the Outlaw.

Thor Motor Coach has recently released new floor plans and valuable camper conveniences aimed to fit today’s busy lifestyles, according to a company news release.

A new 37RB extends the Outlaw Toy Hauler’s desirability by adding a second slideout with a permanent Denver Mattress queen size bed. This dedicated bedroom provides privacy from other guests toward the front of the coach and even from those in the loft bedroom. Now the kids can have their space, while mom and dad get a bed that no longer has to be converted to sleep. This 37RB version keeps all the amenities of a traditional Class A motorhome, with the garage in the rear.

Known as the “Ultimate Tailgating Partner”, the “residential edition” 38RE fits into a unique category with an ultramodern bedroom featuring 9-foot coffered ceilings where the garage is customarily located. The 38RE was awarded the 2015 Top RV Debut by RVBusiness. It has an immense living area and the inventive rear “Patio Deck” folds down to reveal an exterior kitchenette, 50-inch big screen TV, and Bluetooth radio.

Whether you are interested in the Class C 29H toy haulers or any of the Class A Outlaw motorhomes, you will find Thor Motor Coach’s Rapid Camp on all units. Rapid Camp is a wireless control system allowing owners to set up camp quickly at a distance of up to fifty feet away from the motorhome. Features that can be operated include the leveling jacks, slide outs, generator, patio awning, and patio light.

All Outlaw toy haulers and motorhomes include an overhead bunk in the cockpit area with Class A units featuring an electric drop-down version of the bunk. When lowered, the bunk provides a comfortable sleeping space for two. When in the raised position, it is camouflaged into the ceiling and a great place to secure personal items while you’re away because it’s operated by a separate key.

The Outlaw is attracting buyers from many diverse backgrounds.

“We’ve found people are using this type of coach as more than just a toy hauler for hauling ATVs and motorcycles,” said Joel Grimm, gas division national sales manager for Thor Motor Coach.

“Owners are using the garage as a space for their animals, their antiques, and anything else that needs significant hauler capacity. We have even found a number of full-timers using the garage as their mobile office.”

The 2015 Outlaw Class A toy hauler motorhomes are available in three floor plans:

  • 37LS (Length: 38 feet 6 inches)
  • 37MD (Length: 38 feet 9 inches)
  • 38RE (Length: 39 feet 11 inches)

Thor Motor Coach Outlaw No. 1 in Class A Toy Hauler Sales for 2012

The Outlaw continues to be the best selling and most affordable Class A Toy Hauler RV on the market.

Outlaw - Best Selling Toy Hauler RVThe Outlaw toy hauler model from Thor Motor Coach Inc. has been recognized by Statistical Surveys Inc., a retail reporting service in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as the No. 1 Class A toy hauler motorhome model in North America with the largest volume growth in retail registrations during calendar 2012.

The Outlaw is attracting buyers outside the original market for which it was created. Now more and more opportunities outside just hauling toys, like motorcycles and ATV’s, make the Outlaw a natural choice for people wanting to be self-contained and needing space for larger items, according to a company release.

Just a few of the new market possibilities for these toy haulers include:

  • Dog grooming studio
  • Mobile dental office
  • Mobile office area
  • Medical examination rooms
  • Hunting lodge
  • Mobile blood drive unit
  • Ultimate tailgating party vehicle

Recently introduced, the 37MD model extends the Outlaw Toy Hauler’s desirability by adding a second slide room, which is dual-purposed as a second living area or dedicated bedroom.

TMC-Best-Toy-HaulersThis functionality is the result of input from consumers wanting to have a motorized toy hauler for hauling people and toys that can also be converted for full-time camping. A sliding glass door separates the garage from the front of the coach and includes a powered shade for privacy.

The 37LS model features a massive super-slide in the front of the coach for an unobstructed living area.

An oversized booth dinette can easily accommodate four people for dinner, while the front captain’s chairs swivel, allowing for interaction with people on the large hide-a-bed sofa.

Either of these toy hauler models can be equipped with an electric drop down bunk over the cockpit area.

This bed slides down to provide a comfortable sleeping space for two, and when not in use it can be slid up and out of the way, camouflaging itself into the ceiling.

The Outlaw Toy Hauler’s can be converted into a campground hangout by expanding the garage and ramp door into a place for entertaining.

An optional patio railing system forms a terrace off the rear of the coach, while optional fold-down sofas will accommodate seating for six inside the motorhome garage.

Whether it’s coolers, lawn chairs, grills, ATV’s, motorcycles, golf carts or bicycles, if you can pack it, stack it, or roll it, the Outlaw’s garage is ready for outdoor fun.

The 37MD features a second slide room, which is dual-purposed as a second living area or dedicated bedroom.

The 37MD exterior provides large, side-opening, storage compartments, full body paint packages, and separate entries for the living room and garage.

An exterior fueling station can be used to fill-up ATVs and dirt bikes, while outside entertainment options include garage radio controls, wall-mounted marine grade speakers, and a 32-inch LCD TV located under the patio awning.

Features inside the coach include Leatherette seating surfaces, solid surface kitchen countertop, 30-inch over-the-range convection microwave, and easy-clean vinyl flooring throughout the entire coach.

A new optional overhead bunk bed is located above the cockpit for added sleeping flexibility. The second living room/bedroom has a convertible sofa that makes into a queen sized air bed with a loft area for kids or storage.

A sliding glass door separates the garage from the front of the coach and includes a powered shade for privacy.

Transform the Outlaw into the hottest hangout in the campground by turning the garage and ramp door into a place for entertaining with the optional ‘Party Deck’. This patio railing system allows a veranda off the rear of the coach, while optional fold-down sofas will accommodate seating for six inside the garage or be converted in beds.

Worth Pondering…

A happy life is not built up of tours abroad and pleasant holidays, but of little clumps of violets noticed by the roadside, hidden away almost so that only those can see them who have God’s peace and love in their hearts; in one long continuous chain of little joys, little whispers from the spiritual world, and little gleams of sunshine on our daily work.

—Edward Wilson
