Why I abandoned my toy hauler...

Why I abandoned my toy hauler for the truck deck.  

Although motorcycle traveling is great fun, weather and distance can leave you arriving at your destination tired and drained. The SuperDeck III, installed on a suitable pickup truck, allows you to travel to your motorcycle destination in comfort.  Although motorcycle traveling is great fun, weather and distance can leave you arriving at your destination tired and drained.  With the bike on the deck you arrive relaxed and ready to engage in your desired activities.




In comparison to a toy hauler, the SuperDeck III has several advantages.   First, and significant, is the cost of a fully contained toy hauler vs the cost of the SuperDeck III and a less expensive camper equivalent to the toy hauler.   Unless your bike needs protection from the elements, the cost of the “garage” section in a conventional toy hauler is unnecessary.  Towing and maneuvering an 18’ camper is much simpler than dealing with a 30+’ toy hauler.


Secondly, most toy haulers use the bike storage area for a second purpose when the bike is not in
place… this is usually space for the kitchen table or additional bunk space.   This space simply isn’t available when the bike(s) are loaded.   Not to mention that a certain amount of gas, oil and grime are there in your living quarters in the toy hauler.


In terms of convenience, the toy hauler scores big again! If you are just taking your bike out to a one-day event, you don’t need the entire camper or a trailer.  Just park the bike on the SuperDeck II and press the UP button.  Head to the event without having to maneuver/unhook or deal with a trailing storage system.  There’s plenty of storage under the deck for your duffel, cooler and tools.


How about safety?  Other than a hydraulic hitch mounted bike carrier, almost any toy hauler or trailer* is going to have a ramp to deal with.   It was one thing to ride my Bultaco trials bike up a 2x6 into the truck bed, but that was 40 years ago with a #190 bike.   Any ramp offers opportunity for error, particularly in snow or rain.  The SuperDeck III is at ground level where it is simple for one person to push or ride a bike into position against the bulkhead and put down the kick stand while the bike is being strapped down.   Pushing a #500 bike up any ramp is usually more than a single individual can safely manage.   Just check the videos on YouTube for any number of “motorcycle ramp loading fails.


  • note:  the Razor brand  trailer has a drop deck.


The other convenient feature of the SuperDeck III is that it has many alternate uses!   From hauling ATV’s, engine blocks, bales of hay or your mom’s sofa, the SuperDeck III puts any load, up to #2,500, into your truck at the touch of a button!


In summary, the Superdeck III covers all the bases.  Safety, comfort, convenience and utility at a fraction of the cost of a toy hauler.  And you can still have access to your truck hitch to tow your camper or more toys!
