Trailer recommendation?

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking at getting a new trailer to haul an ATV and my Clam 6800 portable (6' by 3+' folded up). I would also like to be able to pull the trailer on the lake with the ATV. The smaller the better! Any ideas?

I have a bear trax 5 X 8 trailer that I really like. I have not put my portable in with the atv since it has gone in my truck but I think it would work. As for the trailer I really like it. It is is pulled by my sportsman 500 with ease and the back folds down so you don't need ramps

I have had a 5x8 Aluma for four years now and it has been great. I would stay away from the some of the cheepo steel ones that some of the farm stores sell.

That's what I have and I've easily gotten my money out of it. The biggest problem is it rusted before I used it. Still works. Had to add new lights after 6 years of use.

I had a cheapo steel and it lasted about 6 years or so. It would still work but was cheaply built with welds breaking, smaller tires, intermittant lights etc. I got a 5x8 Aluma and I love it. It will easily last a bunch longer than the cheapo. My otter lodge fits perfect sideways in front or behind my ATV.

I use an 8.5 x 10 snowmobile trailer to haul my atv's or a single atv and the 3man frabil. if you search this forum, we discussed trailers and ice houses a little while back as well.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
