Plenty of toy haulers can be found in the travel trailer and fifth wheel formats, and the number of Class A motor homes with garages is growing, but a Class C with a garage?

The Seneca ZX from Jayco is exactly that—a Class C motor home with garage, built on the Chevrolet Kodiak C5500 truck chassis.

A power lift gate 96" wide by 90" long can lift 1,600 lbs of toys to be garaged in the 97" wide by 120-1/4" long cargo area. Lift gate is operated by a wired remote control. Two optional sofas and a table in the cargo area fold away to make room for the toys.

While the 1,600 lbs lift is too light for cars (even the diminutive MINI Cooper is too long and too heavy—it weighs about 3,300 lbs), it is plenty for full-size motorcycles, ATV's, and other motorized toys.
