2005 Toy Hauler For Sale CHEAP

Recommended Posts

Guest CycleTrendz

I'm selling my 2005 Forest River Work and Play 26DB Toy Hauler. Best I can do is $14,800 which is way less than I owe. My loss, your gain. I will pay off remainder of loan before I take money so title can be sent immediately upon release!

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks, we do miss it, but no longer use it. Payments would be in the 150-175 a month range on an RV loan. Plus it's tax deductable as a second home!

It works just like a home loan, all your interest paid is tax deductable. You won't find this model anywhere close to what I'm selling it for...I've been looking to make sure! (Best place for a loan is USAA if you can get on with them.) I did alot of searching online to find the best rate.

5360. I've pulled it with a 5.3 Tahoe, 5.3 Suburban, and a 2500HD Diesel. All pulled it with no problems.

also, i would need to haul 2 quads, would they fit?
Shouldnt be a problem. Says it will hold 2 or 3 quads. Cant speak for his mileage, but mine drops from 15 to 10 in my '02 Dodge with a 4.7 gas when I pull a trailer. Thats a good price. Shouldnt be hard to get a loan on that one.

2 quads would be easy! It's 7'6-9" X 11'3-9" cargo area.

MPG on the diesel was 15mpg at 60mph and 10mpg at 70+mph when it was fully loaded.

It's very nice to have heat and a/c, water, shower and full kitchen! I just saw another 05 online for $17,900.

Man,,,,,Im on the Fence here......I hate to say it but there are Way Better Deals out there....I hate to see someone throw money away....You can Get Brand New 08 or 09 for just a 1500.00 Bucks more from Fun Runner....


Lol, you are comparing apples to oranges! The Work and Play sells for $22,500+ new. The units you are referring to in the link are open on the inside, (gas smell), are not built as well, are heavier than the work and play, have smaller tanks, less sleeping area, no freezer, the bathroom sink/toilet are in with the shower (all in one space, so you can poop and shower at the same time, what a design there I tell ya :laugh:), less width room in cargo area b/c of the dinettes, resale value doesn't hold up...my 2005 Blue Book is more than these BRAND NEW! The 2008 18foot Work and Play is over 15K new!

So yes; there are better deals if you don't mind smelling gas all the time, use more fuel to pull it, drop value quickly, isn't made as sturdy, isn't coming from a well known company, smaller in most aspects, you can't have your toys inside while you sleep over night (easy for someone to steal your toys since they aren't inside with you), and you really think you will enjoy taking a poop while you shower at the same time.

This is just my opinion though. Would have been nice if you stated some facts or simply stated something like, ("If you are looking for something less expensive"; or "If you want more of an entry level toyhauler").

You are Right Jason,,,,,I apologize.....

I should have done a Comparison before I posted...


The Carson Units have been around a long time....I have friends that own these Trailers and they hold up very nicely....And they get USED.....

Ive had Several Toyhaulers.....I even ordered a Carson several yrs ago...But found a Good Used Thor Hauler the next day that I couldnt pass up....I have since moved on and as of Today I have owned a New KZ for a yr now.....It has had alot of problems....and in fact I hauled it down to the Dealer yesterday for several Warranty Items....

All I was really trying to say is to keep her eyes open.....That is a lot of money to throw down on a Whim without Checking around.....Im sure your a decent person and I wish you luck in your Sale.....

Not bad for an entry level toyhauler. When I purchased mine; I realized "I" didn't want an open cargo/sleeping area b/c of the fume smell. I would upgrade the front hitch to electric and put two 30lb propane tanks on the one you mentioned. It's a pain cranking that thing up and down and I guess you would need to fill those small propane tanks often.

Whatever she chooses will hopefully be what she was looking for though.

      I have a DS 650x available.  Garage kept for its entire life and runs well.  OMF beadlocked wheels.  Located in San Antonio Texas area.  I’m motivated to sell and work with shipping options but serious inquiries only interested in a large sport ATV that won’t come around again.
      Here’s a photo from a few weeks ago.  I can send over more photos, videos, or we can have a FaceTime session to take a look remotely.  Let me know.

      My quad will start sometimes than just die well it’s running than won’t start again for a day , put in new battery same problem and it seems to drain battery any help would be great

      Well, after tinkering on my last project (a 2003 Kawasaki Bayou 300) I ended up putting it on Craigslist and it sold within a day. Then about two weeks after that a 2005 Mule 610 with 40 hours on it popped up, for about 1/3 the cost I usually see them, so... I didn't have much of a choice.
      The Mule's first issue was idle, it would die if you didn't keep a light toe on the accelerator. Turns out the idle screw had never been touched, five minutes after I got it off the trailer it idles just fine. 🤦‍♂️
      As of today, it runs great on flat land. And it climbs like, well, a mule.
      But it has one issue. Sometimes uphill it will suddenly lose power like the fuel isn't getting delivered. It never dies completely, it just sputters and won't go until you let off the gas pedal and let it recover. It tends to do it more with 2 passengers or some cargo and wide open throttle BUT occasionally will do it at only partial throttle and with just me on it. 
      I read a lot about how the fuel pumps on these Mule 610's suck, so I put in a new one today and a new fuel filter. It still had the same symptoms immediately after, so that was $40 wasted.
      Any ideas? I keep seeing folks saying they replaced the pulse pump with an electric fuel pump. This thread said so, and it gets brought up in this thread and also here. In each case somebody says "12v fuel pump solved my problem!" and then they promptly disappear from ever posting again, lol.
      I have some questions for y'all:
      1. Do you think fuel delivery is the problem? I have a hunch that it is, given the hill + throttle symptoms.
      2. The pulse pump on the Mule is located ABOVE the gas tank. Can an electric fuel pump pull fuel UP in this manner?
      3. What would I do with the spare line that goes from the fuel pump to the crankcase? Every electrical pump is just in & out, they don't have that third line...
      4. Any idea what kind of flow rate I would need or which pump works for this application?

      I have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 400 Automatic. It has an oil leak inside clutch cover. The middle gear has two oil seals, the front seal is leaking engine oil into clutch area. How do you change the leaking seal?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
