When you think of the phrase “Toxic RV” what comes to mind?
- Formaldehyde fumes?
- FEMA trailers?
- Mattresses that slowly offgas harmful vapors?
- Hazardous toilet chemicals?
Perhaps you weren’t thinking “Awesome new toy hauler!” but that’s what Omega RV was envisioning when they came up with their brand new “Toxic RV.”
This shiny new toy hauler RV appeals to the off-roading mountain and desert rats in the RVing community. According to Don Day, general manager and partner for Omega RV in Caldwell, Idaho, Toxic RV has sick new features that off-roaders will die for, like:
- a dry weight of 5,900 pounds fully equipped
- a payload of more than 5,000 pounds
- garage areas of 10 and 13 feet
- a 116 gallons fresh water tank
- a 38-gallon fuel tank
- and a pump station with a 4,000 watt Onan generator.
In addition to all that, Day says “most importantly (it has) an aggressive never seen before architecture and styling.”
Toxic RV complements Omega’s Road Ranger trailer and fifth wheeler RVs. The company was formed when they took over the intellectual properties of the former KIT production plant, which produced recreational vehicles for more than 67 years before closing, along with all equipment and materials.
Often called “The O.G. of full-time RVing,” Rene Agredano and her husband Jim Nelson hit the road in a fifth wheel trailer in 2007, after their dog Jerry lost a leg to terminal cancer. Sixteen years later they are still traveling and sharing their nomadic adventures at LiveWorkDream. As a self-employed wordsmith, Rene shares her expertise for many RV industry videos, publications such as the Escapees RV Club Magazine, and has authored numerous books, including the Essential RVing Guide to National Parks, and Income Anywhere, a guide to earning money on the road. She has been featured in global media outlets including the PBS documentary “NATURE: Why We Love Cats and Dogs,” The Guardian Sunday Edition, and the Dan Pink book Free Agent Nation.
