16 • RV PRO • November 2019 rv-pro.com O P E N H O U S E C O V E R A G E Dutchmen Voltage 4195 Maxed out is how General Manager Josh Staley describes how Dutchmen managed to pack so much space into the 4195 toy hauler. But it's also a good descriptor for the entire trailer. At 44 feet, 11 inches long, that's pretty much maxed out. At 429 square feet, again, maxed out. And with all the features and design techniques used to get the most out of every room, the 4195 is about as maxed out a toy hauler as can be found on the market. "It's the first toy hauler to have a den-style living room," Staley says. "You have those three separate sofas that all face the television. And unlike anybody else who does that kind of floorplan, you don't have to move any of the furniture around to bring the slides in or out. It's a big pain for people to pull out sections of a couch move them just to run the slide and then they have to strap it down for transport. You don't have to do any of that with the 4195." Also, a traditional toy hauler either has a big kitchen or a big living room. Voltage 4195 has both. The living room not only features the three sofas, with two situated in opposing slide-outs, but also has a large entertain- ment center with 50-inch TV at the front of the room. The living room is separated from the kitchen by a large countertop behind one sofa and a pantry and 18-cubic-foot refrigerator in the slide next to another sofa. Perhaps the most innovative feature that allows for maximum use of space is a Stack 'N Pack half-bath in the Voltage garage that allows for that second bathroom, but also make is possible keep the full 13-foot garage. The bathroom is designed with two walls that are hinged, enabling them to fold against the outer wall for maximum garage space when traveling and convert into a functional half bath at a campsite. The garage area includes overhead storage and a Lay Flat Happi-Jack Power Bunk with sofas and tabletop. The back gate is a Zero-G Ramp Door that makes for easy opening and closing. "We maximized the square-footage of the unit," Staley says. "So, we stretched it out and used every single inch. We still made sure we had a good bedroom and bathroom combo, because you don't want to sacrifice that, either." The bedroom features a king bed with storage underneath and night stands on either side of the bed. Dual wardrobes fill a slide in the bedroom. A walk-through bath features a large shower. On the outside, a large pass-through storage area is located under the bedroom and a pair of awnings – 21-foot and 10-foot – cover most of the campsite side of the trailer. What impressed RV PRO: Designers of the Voltage 4195 didn't leave anything out. Often, toy haulers seem like just a glorified cargo trailer with a stove, TV and a bed, but the 4195 feels like a complete RV all by itself … and then there's a garage in the back. Dutchmen dialed in the toy hauler category with its Voltage 4195, which is not so much geared toward the outdoor active RVer as it is toward the full-time RVer who wants garage space.
