More importantly looking for an enclosed trailer to fit it. same thing, high ground clearance, compact, but just enough room to be able to sleep in if necessary.
Any suggestions? thanks
Check out the other thread on ATV's ---- lots of good info on what to purchase. Stay away from the Can-Am - I have one and have had issues ever since the 30-day warranty expired. Had I known that their warranty was only 30 days - no way I would have one now.
I use a quad for those trails. And either my side by side, which is a full size can am defender, or my dodge rebel truck on the rest of the roads.
Just a heads-up, I got $500.00 more for it last month selling it than I paid for it in 2018 brand new.
Good luck, Robb
That trailer is exactly what I had in mind. Does it pull ok being a single axle, or is it "whippy"?
As per the the cargo trailer, I have a single axle 6'-6"H x 6'W x 12'L CargoMate, and it tows very well as long as you have a greater % of the weight in the trailer ahead of the axle.
I did have to get the trailer 6" taller than the normal 6' inside clearance for the RZR roof to clear the rear door....as you lose over 6" of door clearance from the rated height.
Other options I got were the Dexter axle mounted on taller shackles to provide the same clearance as my stock F350 (more than my F150. (Robb's trailer shown above is quite low and would give me clearance trouble on water bars on our BC logging roads). That option was no-charge when I ordered the trailer. I got the largest and heaviest rated radial trailer tires CargoMate offered (same size as Robb's).
I ordered it insulated on the walls and roof, with plywood covering the insulation on the walls and metal on the roof. The 3/4" plywood floor is not insulated and not sure that is an option. You could foam it on the outside, or carry a thick rug for cold weather use. Ordered 8 floor tie downs on it too.
I spec'd a swivel jack vs the standard fixed in place screw jack and it is nicely out of the way and there is no tailgate interference. Also got rear stabilizing jacks so the trailer isn't tippy if unhooked. They allow you to change a tire by using them in conjunction with the swivel jack too. Make sure you get a spare tire...it was an option on mine!
Other spec'd option s were 2 each 30"x30" tinted windows with screens. Also a 36" wide RV door with a screen door, inside flip lock and outside key lock. The window was opaque but I changed it out for tinted on.
All the noted options above added about $1,000 US to the price of the $4400 trailer back in 2014. Bet they are a lot higher today!
When I camp in it I use a folding "Swedish" cot, a small folding table to cook on, folding chair, cooler, and rug. Due to the extra ground clearance a plastic milk crate works well for a step. I added 25 large cup hooks inside to hang up clothes, towels, etc. Also a paper towel rack and broom clip.
Handy rig that I moved a lot of mounts from CO to BC in. And plenty of "stuff" from lumber to trees when we build the house and landscaped.
Good luck, Robb
