What Size Trailer?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

First post here, though I have been reading the forum for some time. I am trying to figure out what size trailer I need to carry a new Polaris Ranger. The problem is that I need to get both at the same time, so I can't buy the Ranger first and then measure the Ranger against any new trailer.

I need a trailer (because it will serve double-duty) which has a raised barrier around front and both sides. This means that when I drive the Ranger onto the trailer, the front end of the Ranger will "bump" up against the front barrier. Now the question--how long does the trailer have to be to just barely get the rear wheels of the Ranger on to the trailer if the front end of the Ranger is nestled against the front barrier? Granted the back end of the Ranger may hang out a bit, but what is the absolute smallest length trailer I could get away with? In other words, I guess I am asking for the measurement from the very front of the Ranger to the rear of the rear wheels...or probably some of you have such a trailer and know exactly how long the minimum trailer length would be. Thanks for any counsel! And any other advice you may have for a guy who hardly has a clue about what this is all going to involve!

    • Hey Guys!

      Hey everyone!  My name is Scott, and my wife, kids and I are in escrow on a home that is on 10 acres.  After much back and forth trying to decide between getting a tractor or a side x side for working around the property, I finally narrowed it down to a side x side.  My father has a 2018 Odes Dominator x4 Zeus, so I called him up to get his thoughts on it, as he uses it on his 12 acres out in Missouri quite a bit.  While talking, he mentioned that he is thinking about selling his Odes, and buying a jeep to tow behind his motorhome, so we got to talking, and it looks like I'm buying it from him.  Its a 2018 with 13 hours on it, break in just done, and all fluids just got changed.  I look forward to learning more about the UTV world, and look forward to any input anyone can give me on the Odes brand of UTV.   Thanks Scott

    • Has anybody else felt this money burn with the Polaris 800S

      Bought a brand new Polaris 800s in 2012 for my wife ($18500). My first service was $650 (20 hrs) my second service was $2000 and my third service was just quoted at $1100 (now has 60hrs) but my dealer said they could make it $500 and I could do the front ball joints next year. My wife with our 5 years follow me around our lake and we take it pretty easy, i could drive my wife's Audi S5 convertible just about 95% of the trails we take. My Suzuki Quad has cost me $200 in Maintenance in the last three years. Dealer tells me I have a lemon and he knows guys with 3600km and spent $200 in maintenance... Just looking at what the general consensus is out there...Maybe my dealer is a crook! But Polaris has lost my business and I buy lots of toys.
