April 26, 2017: ATC toy haulers have been advertised as being both tougher and lighter than competing brands due to their all-aluminum construction. That’s what got us so interested in them.
When looking at other brands of toy haulers, we became very concerned about water leaks and wood rot. In fact, when we looked at brand new toy haulers sitting on dealer lots, we were concerned that they had sat in the rain long enough to already have leaks and wood rot.
Another consideration is that ATC’s toy haulers are actually lighter than traditional steel/wood trailers. Their 28 foot toy hauler is about 1,500 to 2,000 pounds lighter than a competing 28 footer. That was important to us because our tow vehicle is a half-ton pickup, and we needed something half-ton towable.
Video Tour of ATC’s Manufacturing
When we picked up our toy hauler, Dale Davis, who leads the marketing for ATC’s toy hauler division, gave us a tour of the factory where they build all of their trailers. It gave us a first hand look at the level of quality that goes into their toy haulers.
After having walked through other brands of toy haulers, we were really impressed with exceptional build quality of ATC. While you certainly do pay more money to get an ATC, you also get it back in features, strength, and support.
We’ll let the video and the photos do most of the talking in this review. But one last word about ATC’s customer support, phenomenal! After taking delivery of the trailer, the guys at ATC have been amazing in making sure our questions are answered and our issues resolved.
