Default My new toy! Toy "Hauler" actually

Picked this up today over in Danville, VA. It's a 2013 Heartland Cyclone Toy Hauler.

Finally traded in the trusty 'ol Trail Cruiser that (almost) never let me down!

Bill that looks great I did a Google on your trailer you have some serious toy room in there. Now I see why they call it a toy hauler I'm looking forward to seeing this in person.
Great score on the new rig!

Thanks John!

We are super stoked! It pulls amazingly well. It weighs about 2 tons more than my old one did but other than that initial giddy up go, I really can't tell much difference in pulling it power wise.

It was about a 3 hour ride each way to get it so I got some good wheel time coming back and there were no surprises. So far we are loving it!

I take it the truck had no problem with the extra wgt. with handling, and the drive.
Good excuse for a new truck with a custom paint job to match the trailer.

It did great. It almost felt like it was happy do be doing some heavy lifting! Gotta love the torque and horsepower of those diesels.

OK, now I'm really jealous! I have to stack models on the bed, and in the bathtub, in my 27' Jayco, to carry all I want to take to distant fly-ins. Mines a standard trailer though, so I do have the truck bed covered with a nice cap, for extra model haulage.

Looks like a huge trailer Bill. The real test will be you hauling it over to see your folks in the Volunteer state!
