ATV Haulers

I think it's time to shop for a bigger trailer to haul our toys. I have a 5x8 tilt bed trailer that's been great, but now we have 2 Ranchers & it's a hassle to carry one in the truck & one on the trailer.

I don't know a lot about trailers, but have been looking on CL some.

Btw, I have an F150 4wd 5.4L to pull it.

Will the Ranchers fit in a 6.5' wide trailer sideways? I'm looking at a 15' tandem, that I may be able to trade for a CRF150f that I have for sale.

I figure that would easily carry two straight, or maybe 3 sideways.

Is that a good size trailer? I've seen a lot of folks pulling multiple quads sideways on trailers, but never paid any attention to the details.

What do you guys use? What should I look for?

05' & 07' 4x4 FM Ranchers

I just put mine in the truck but my boss just bought a 6.5'x10' or 12' or something for hauling his Polaris and another machine he is looking to buy.

6.5' wide inside the rails will fit an atv side loaded,and 15' long inside means 3 atvs will fit on it leaving 1-3' of room at the front,or rear for toolbox,gas cans,etc...

Glenn, A 12' trailer is a nice sized trailer for two atv's. Most 12' atv trailers allow you to put one atv on sideways (across the front) and 1 facing forward in the rear. A 15' trailer is pretty big and could accommodate 3 atv's. I'd look around for a good deal on a 12' trailer that has nice ramps, is easy to get the atv's on/off of, and which has plenty of places to tie down the atv's. Your truck will be able to pull 2 atv's and a trailer just fine.....even though it is a Ford. just kidding.
