When you see a Class A motorhome going down the interstate, you might imagine a luxurious interior with porcelain floors and beautiful cabinetry. But did you know some motorhomes are actually outfitted with a rear garage? It’s true! Take the Thor Outlaw toy hauler motorhome, for example. Instead of towing a separate trailer for outdoor gear, you can pack kayaks, bicycles, motorcycles, golf carts, and more in the rear of this motorcoach.
Let’s take a closer look at these Outlaw motorhomes!
About the Thor Class A and Class C Outlaw Motorhome
Each toy hauler model features a rear garage space for hauling sizable outdoor toys like kayaks, golf carts, or motorcycles. Plus, the garage ramp can be used as a patio deck. Many larger families also convert the garage space into additional sleeping quarters.
Measuring 39′ 10″ with a GVWR of 26,000 lbs, the Thor Outlaw Class A motorhome is a beast. It sleeps seven to eight people, depending on the floor plan. The Class C Thor Outlaw is 31′ 2″ with a GVWR of 14,500 lbs. It sleeps four without making any conversions to the garage space.
