For those of you who don’t own an RV equipped with a garage but still want to transport motorized toys like ATVs, motorcycles or even a golf cart, Idaho Tote offers a solution. An all-steel flatbed carrier that attaches to the back of the RV, the Idaho Tote bolts to a special bracket that is welded on the RV’s frame.
A compressed-air system controls the patented axle: one airbag changes the axle position in reverse, and the other when driving forward. Optional add-ons include an electric-brake package, shock absorbers, a variety of loading ramps and a 15-inch tire upgrade from the standard 14-inch ST radials. Available in custom colors, the 8.5-foot-wide carrier can be ordered in 1-foot increments from 6 to 10 feet and has a gross vehicle weight rating of 3,000 pounds. While the wheels and tires carry most of the weight, it’s important to account for the additional weight on the rear of the trailer. You’ll also want to check DMV regulations regarding RV extensions, which vary from state to state.
MSRP: From $6,830
