Teryx on a deck and pulling a trailer

Anyone put thier Teryx on a raised deck in the back of a short box truck and pull a holiday trailer?
If so, what length of deck are you using?
Can you turn sharp corners and not have the trailer hit the overhang?
Any pictures of it loaded up?

Sorry I can't help you but I do haul mine in the bed of my dually and the tailgate wont shut all the way. I have never had any problems with it even coming close. I htink if you are above your propane tanks you should be fine. Also if you are building the deck have it so the front is elevated a llittle which might give you a little more roon.

Ok I knew I had seen something like this so I had to do a little searching but maybe this can give you an idea.

I seen a private built one like that on Jon's UTV Guide site. I didn't like that it looked like it sat on the side walls but I did like that it came apart on pins. It is a possibility to do something like this.
Just looking for options as I can't afford to do what I want to the Teryx and buy a Toy Hauler too. Something has to give.

Its nice but you can't pull a trailer with it. Good for a day run though.

Agree...

The extension stick out a bit far so it may out some strain on it.

Just read an article on that subject somewhere . Don't know what your truck is rated , but with the macine and trailer tongue wieght , you may want to consider airbags on your rear springs to help level the load and control body roll with the center of gravity so high. I use them on my SUV to help tongue wieght and they really help with vehicle control .
