Considering Rubicon, Wolf Pack, Octane, Sport Trek

I've been researching toy haulers in the 6000-6500lb range for awhile, and have come up with these potentials:
1. Dutchmen Rubicon 2100
2. FR Cherokee Wolf Pack 24PACK14
3. Jayco Octane 273 Super Lite
4. Venture Sport Trek 302VTH

I'm hoping that some forum members can shed light on their own recent experiences with any of these. Unfortunately there are no 2100 Rubicons near me and that's the only one I haven't looked at in person. Each of them has their advantages, and in the end I expect it will come down to the small stuff, dealer and price.

Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

Welcome!
  • Chose a dealer/service department you are happy with and can work with
  • Choose the floor plan that works best for you
  • Do a very thorough Pre-Delivery Inspection aka PDI BEFORE you sign the final paperwork

Good luck with your search!

Welcome to the forum.

What Aaron said.

Leave your emotions at home the day you pick you your new RV and don't be pressured into taking delivery until everything is to your satisfaction.

Watch the hitch weight on the Rubicon. My 2500 is listed at 1145lb dry and with just the propane and a couple of batteries on the front, I put it on the scale at over 1600lb and that is with a full fuel tank in the rear and empty tanks everywhere else. Seems these travel trailer toy haulers bring a new dimension to balancing weight but don't have the facilities to do so. You would think that there would be a ton of storage behind the rear axles for the times you haven't got the toys onboard but there is zero facility to do that.

Whew...a lot of good stuff so far!

Having owned a Jayco T29A as our first Toyhauler...and you're looking at smaller RVs...

You're just about not going to be able to do much in the trailer when you have OHVs or whatever in the "garage". In our T29A we could use the bathroom/shower, the bedroom, and about half the kitchen. No TV (until I put one in the bedroom).

Just something to think about as you look.
