The Maverick X3 from Can-Am is one of the most popular UTVs on the off-road scene today. We know it's a rush to take out on trail, dirt, and desert, but first, you have to get there. Can you tow a Maverick X3 in a toy hauler? You can, but not just any toy hauler will do. We've done some digging, and here's what we've found.
The largest Maverick X3 package is the Max X MR Turbo RR, with a dry weight of 1,981 pounds and measuring 165 x 74.2 x 68 inches. The best toy haulers for hauling such a colossus include:
- The Seismic 3815 by Jayco
- The Venom V-Series V3916TK by KZ
While only a few toy haulers can handle the Maverick X3 MAX packages, more can haul the smaller Maverick X3 X packages. Toy haulers with garages that can accommodate them include:
- The Momentum 31G by Grand Design
- The Vengeance Rogue Armored 351 by Forest River
We'll cover each of these toy haulers in more detail, as well as how to secure your Maverick X3 in them. We'll also tackle tough questions about street-legal UTVs and if it's possible to get two in a single toy hauler.
Toy Haulers for all Maverick X3 packages
The Can-Am Maverick X3 comes in more packages than you can shake a stick at. While there are 17 different packages in total, they fall into three categories: Standard, X, and MAX.
With the toy haulers listed here, you don't have to worry which one you have; their spacious garages and herculean weight limits can haul them all.
Seismic 3815 by Jayco
Jayco produces a variety of RVs, including toy haulers. Their Seismic 3815 is a fifth-wheel toy hauler with a massive 15'6" garage. This length is enough to accommodate a Maverick X3 MAX with room to spare.
While the weight details for the 2022 model aren't available yet, the 2021 model, which featured a similar floorplan including the large garage, had an impressive cargo-carrying capacity (CCC) of 5,085 lbs.
The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of this fifth-wheel is 19,995 lbs, on the high side for even a fifth-wheel toy hauler. Learn more about choosing the right truck for your needs in our article, "What Size Truck Do I Need for Towing a Toy Hauler?"
See it in all its glory in this video from Jayco.
Venom V-Series V3916 by KZ
Another fifth-wheel that can handle all Maverick X3 packages is the Venom V-Series V3916 by KZ. It features a sizeable 15'9" garage and a CCC of 4,600 lbs.
When you're not offroading in your Maverick, you'll be able to relax in luxury in the Venom V-Series. It features two ducted AC units and an electric-tilt king-size bed with a Serta mattress.

Toy Haulers for Maverick X3 Standard and X packages
The Maverick X3 Standard and X packages aren't quite as long or heavy as their MAX counterparts. Still, they measure a lengthy 132", meaning you'll still need to choose a toy hauler with plenty of cargo area. The ones listed here will keep you taken care of.
Momentum 31G by Grand Design
Grand Design makes a variety of high-quality RVs. Their toy haulers are particularly popular, and Grand Design was given the gold for their toy haulers in RV Magazines 2020 Readers' Choice Awards.
Their Momentum 31G is a great choice for hauling a Maverick X3. It has a 13' garage and 3,025 lbs CCC. It's also the first toy hauler on our list that's a travel trailer instead of a toy hauler, so even if your rig isn't set up for fifth-wheel towing, you'll be set. Just make sure to account for its 12,000 lb GVWR.

The Vengeance Rogue Armored 351 by Forest River
Forest River is another company noted in RV Magazine's Readers' Choice Awards, getting the silver in the toy hauler category.
It has a 13' garage and 3,386 lb CCC, so it's ready to haul any of the Maverick X3 Standard or X packages. While the Vengeance Rogue Armored 351 is a fifth-wheel build, the Vengeance Rogue 32V can also accommodate the same Maverick X3s in a travel trailer form.

How much does a Can-Am Maverick X3 weigh?
The unloaded vehicle weight (UVW, also known as dry weight) of Can-Am Maverick X3 packages ranges between 1,481 to 1,940 lb (671.9 - 880 kg).
This weight doesn't include anything other than the weight of the UTV itself, including fuel. All packages have a 10.5-gallon (40-liter) fuel tank, which will add another 70 lb (32 kg) when full. You will also have to account for all the other cargo you load when calculating weights for your toy hauler.
How do you tie down a Can-Am Maverick X3?
Don't underestimate the importance of properly tying down your Maverick X3 or any other UTVs. Toy haulers and UTVs don't come cheap. The last thing you want is your Maverick X3 rolling around in your toy hauler like a bull in a china shop, causing expensive, sometimes irreparable, damage to both.
How can you secure your UTV in your toy hauler? Be sure to use high-quality, heavy-duty straps with secure fasteners and connect your straps to sturdy points to both your toy hauler and UTV.
Let's take a look at each point in detail.
Use high-quality, heavy-duty straps
Investing in high-quality straps is going to save you money and heartache in the long run.
For securing the Maverick X3 or any other vehicle, be sure to use ratchet straps. These straps include a ratchet that you can use to tighten the straps once you have them set up. Once they're tight, you can lock the ratchet in place so it won't come loose on the road.
While not essential, there are some other features to look for in good straps. Padded ratchets are easier and more comfortable to get fully secure. Clips on the hooks prevent the straps from coming off even if they do manage to get loose somehow. The straps below from Rhino USA have all of these features and an impressive break strength of 5,208 lbs.
Connect to sturdy points on your toy hauler and UTV
Most toy haulers will include D-rings in their garage area to help you secure your cargo. These are built directly into the frame and offer the most support. When using D-rings, you can connect your tie-downs to it with the hook.
If your garage doesn't have D-rings or they're not conveniently located, be sure to attach your straps to a bar that's a part of the toy hauler frame for the most security. When not using rings, you should loop the strap around the bar once or twice and hook the strap to itself.
For the Maverick X3 or other UTVs, look for exposed frame rails on the bottom of the vehicle. These are the best places to attach your straps. Loop the strap around the bar and hook it to itself. If your strap kit includes soft straps, you can wrap one around the frame bar and hook the main strap to both of the soft straps' loops.
The video below uses an open trailer to demonstrate how to secure a UTV. The same principles apply when tying down your Can-Am Maverick X3 in a toy hauler as well.

Are Can-Am Maverix X3s street legal?
The short answer is no, at least not without modification. You would need to add turn signals, a horn, mirrors, and more to your UTV, get it inspected and registered, and even then, it might not still be street legal depending on your area.
It's best to play it safe. We do not encourage driving the Maverick X3 on the road. If it is absolutely necessary, make sure you are in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations before driving your Maverick X3 on the street.
If you are looking for a street-legal UTV for your area, you may have more luck with the Ariel Nomad. While it has been touted in the press as a side-by-side that meets street-legal standards, you should still check with your local DMV to make sure you can drive it on the road in your area.
How can you fit two UTVs in a toy hauler?
If you're looking to fit two Maverick X3s in your toy hauler, we're sorry to say that you are out of luck. At least at the time of writing, there are no toy haulers from any major manufacturers with garages long or wide enough to fit two of these beasts.
In fact, most side-by-sides are too long, and toy hauler garages are too short or narrow to fit two. However, there is an exception.
The garage in the Momentum 30G by Grand Design is 20'7" long. Why wasn't it included in our list earlier? This floor plan includes the kitchen in the garage, limiting the available width to 73.5" for the last 7'4" of length.
While this length is too narrow for the Maverick X3, it's not for slimmer side-by-sides, such as the Maverick Trail from Can-Am or the RZR SR1 from Polaris. While it is possible to fit two of either of these in the Momentum 30G, you will need to be extra cautious when calculating your cargo weight.
The Maverick X3 is a mighty goliath of a side-by-side. Not all toy haulers can handle it, but now you know some great options that can. Now all that's left to do is get it loaded, secure, and hit the road.
