Looking to buy an enclosed snowmobile trailer

3 posts in this topic

Want to get an enclosed snowmobile trailer before next winter. Just like anything there are a lot of different brands and shapes and sizes. But here is what I'm looking for. I want a trailer to fit 3 sleds and also be able to haul a couple motorcycles in the summer and just be able to haul misc. stuff when needed. A  V nose with drive off ramp looks like a good idea for snowmobiles and probably good for motorcycles to. Possibly Aluminum for less weight and rust. What length and width would be good for 3 sleds? And what are some of the better built brands out there. Been doing a little looking on line but will go out and look at some when the weather warms up.

We bought a 29 foot V Nose Lightning Trailer a few years ago and we've been real happy with it, it's 7 foot wide, rings in the floor, interior lighting, roof vent and fuel doors, fits 4 mountain sleds with no problem in a staggered configuration (not side by side ). They have motorcycle packages for their trailers too.

The trailer is all aluminum and we've pulled it several times with 1/2 ton trucks out too Cooke City and where ever, pulls real nice.

Another all aluminum trailer is the EZ Hauler, very similar to the Lightning trailers.

Did a little searching on line and Triton and Aluma seem to be high rated to. They also seem the most expensive but that is to be expected if they are built better. I guess I will need to get out and look at some when it warms up. One thing that was brought up was to look at the doors and hardware and of coarse the frame. Definitely want to buy a good one as I tend to keep things for a long time. Also leaning towards aluminum for weight and rust.

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
