Trailer for Teryx

Hey guys, new to the site...and new to the UTV world. I currently have 2 Honda ATVs...'07 Foreman and an '07 Rincon. After a couple of years of these machines, I have figured out it's time to make the plunge into the UTV world. I do a lot of duck hunting and the UTV is really what I need...do a little trail riding, but mostly hunting.

First, I've got sell my quads...working on that now.

Second, I've got to sell my trailer...it's a 5 x 14, dove tail, new tires/wheels...pretty slick...but a Teryx won't fit on it.

So, question - what is the best trailer for hauling a Teryx? I assume at least 6' wide...what about length? My son has a dirt bike that we occasionally take with us riding...and I plan to get a small ATV for my daughter within the next 2 years. Was thinking about a 6 x 12...put the Teryx/dirt bike on the trailer (will it fit?) and the ATV in the bed of truck.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Reb

With a dirt bike and a quad, I'd go 8 or 8.5 wide (dirt bike beside the Teryx.) and 14'+ long (quad sideways). Then you have flexibility as either the quad or the dirt bike and/or your gear can go in the back of the truck box. It seems like you have a lot of toys so I'm sure you can always bring more that way.

I sell utility trailers teryx with stock tires and wheels will just squeeze on a 5' trailer, I know Doug said 8-8.5 but trailer with are given by inside bed width there really is know such legal utility trailer that wide the trailer we sell the most for utvs is actually a 6'4" by 10' or 12' that is usually as wide as you see, we also sell alot of 6'4"x12 with ramps on the side along with gate on the rear any thing that width that is any longer I you would really need to go to tadem These trailers I am talking about are 76" in side the bed

Big Daddy, I like the idea of a side load, but since the Teryx will be going on the trailer first, it's kind of irrelevant...I have looked for a 6 x 12 (or 14) with a side load, but with the side load ramp toward the back of the trailer...behind the axle (not in front)...between the axle and the ramp on the back of the trailer...does that make sense?

We run 2 machine sled trailers up here (8' wide) lots. The wheels are under the trailer and not to the side.

Example of a Triton Snowmobile Trailer. Link Click Here.

And if you are a baller. (out of my price range) Go enclosed and something like this.

or

Get Extra Height.



The extra width keeps the length down.

The reason they are in the front is the location of the axle the geometry just want allow the gate to be behind the axle

They also make a trailer that has a gate on the front that allows you after you have hooked up the trailer to let it down on to your tailgate and drive one into your truck bed pretty neat idea

Its crazy how these utvs has grown I just ordered one of my friends a 6'4" x14' trailer, he bought one of the new Polaris 4 seaters come by and got a 12' trailer to go pick it up called me later and said that the 12' was not long enough and he would need a 14' I said you are crazy turned out he was right the only way it would fit on a 12' was to back it on, who would have thought we would be seeing atv's that would take a 14' trailer to haul it around.
