Most RVers want a toy hauler for transporting a golf cart, motorcycle or ATV, but what about a race car? That was the challenge when I got into autocross racing.

My husband and I decided to rent out our house in Utah and purchase a toy hauler so I could attend races, but it’s hard to find an RV that can accommodate a 15-foot car. Fortunately, our salesperson at Camping World found a 45-foot Jayco Seismic Wave 416W fifth-wheel that has a 16-foot-long garage, and the car fits like a glove.

The Seismic Wave allows me to go to racetracks with my car and my family, and have the convenience of a hot shower, warm meal and comfortable bed. I love the full-time trailer life and sharing this experience with my husband and our little min-pin mix, Boom.
