Well we have a "02 Expedition, and a trailer and we can fit all 5 rides in it, (1-400ex, 2-250's, 1-110, and either 1 dirtbike or 1 90 or the other 110. I will try to get pictures on here soon. Oh and we have the normal things to bring too(chairs,gas,cooler,camping things,riding clothes and air compresser and battery charger).

Mine fits perfect in my Ranger. Get a ramp first of all. Ride up until your front wheels hit the wheel wells. Put it in neutral hold your front brake. Get off and climb to the front of the quad. Grab your bumper and release the brake. Pull it the rest of the way in. That's how I do it in the ranger. In the F150 you can just ride right in.

LOL you make it sound so easy stoopid..I spent like 45 minutes trying to do that the first time i loaded it..I was sweating bullets in like 95 degree weather....Thats when im like ..F IT and nailed it up rode over the wheel wells and slammed on the breaks..the truck was bobbing back and forth for like 20 seconds..and i am not doing that again lol..

And i believe from wheel well to wheel well its about 42 ish inches..with line-x..the overall width of bed is like 47 itches..but the freakin wheel wells screw me over..

And to mwke, I can push it up the ramps fine..then the front tires hit the wheel wells and turn and then its hell from there..are you saying push it in from the back of the quad in first? I still dont think itd fit..

Also..riding it up is damn hard..it ALWAYS stalls and dies when i try to go up..i can only nail it up to keep it from dying<-Shuld i be riding the clutch in first to get it up the ramps?

What I was sayin was.....Roll it in there Backwards.....But before you do.....Reverse the Rear Rims......

That offset will give you less overall Width in the rear and might Clear the Wells:wink:

Eh, but i dont want them to be like that all the time so i'd have to take em off..put em on..take em off put em on etc..and ..wheel well = 42 inches..trx = 46? ..would i really lose 4 inches by switching rims

And to stoopid, I'll try wut u said next time. My parents said when they picked it up (I wasnt with em) the guy at the dealer rode it up the ramp..stalled it right in the middle (lol) and hit the break started it back up and rode it the rest of the way

My offset is stock lol..I think thats 3+2 right? And can u flip the rims without any modifications ? Just to flip em to transport.. Or i guess i gotta get abigger truck "Mom..Dad..my four wheeler dont fit in the truck buy me a bigger one" lol

I was thinkin when i eventually get the spair cash..(..would be a while since im paying for the quad) I'd buy a little trailer just for the size of my four wheeler..or maybe 2 for a friends or something..would look stupid pulling a trailer and a quad with a truck ..but itd be so much easier and faster

Yes,,,,,Just unbolt them and Flip em around.....That should Suck them in.....Just take a Tape measure and measure em....Just measure the outside of the Rim...That will tell you how much Narrower you will be with them Flipped...

And Yes.....Just to transport....My Buddies just put two nuts on them to roll it in and out.....

I have a 5X10 trailer and was putting two on the trailer and one in the truck when I had the Dodge Ram 1500 but now I have a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited I am thinking about modifying my trailer to fit three on it. I may just get a new trailer but I like the challenge of making my existing trailer work too.

This is what hauls my toys when we go riding NOW.... a 2005 29 ft Sierra Sport 5th wheel

SamoaSandDunesTrip007.jpg

With another utility trailer behind it when we had the Odyssey and the golf cart.

WHY? Because it fits 2 full sized quads and 2 little quads, 2 large dog crates, one smaller dog crate, riding gear for 4 (or more) and sleeps 10! (probably 8 would be better)

We used to have a 1986 28 ft Alfa Toy House 5th wheel we pulled a boat trailer behind with 4 waverunners and a jet ski on it. ( It handled 1 little quad, the Odyssey OR golf cart, and 2-3 dirtbikes along with 2 large dog crates no problem) and only slept 4 comfortably unless we added a queen air mattress in the back.

(sorry, don't have THAT pic on the computer..).. :no:

I didn't drive it, just rode along... didn't seem to have any trouble stayin' where it was supposed to. The only hard part is backing! LOL pulling the BOAT trailer back there, now that was a little scary (but didn't wag) and seriously sucked fuel! (it was about the same length as the 5th wheel)

:frown: I try to talk the DH out of hauling 2 trailers every time, sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.. :wink: I'd rather drive a second tow vehicle myself. Or it just doesn't seem safe.

I just hate not being able to see the Trailer back there....I dont have a Problem Driving Doubles....Ive Done it with Big Rigs...But I can See the Second one back there....Ive driven behind some people that were Hauling trailers behind their 5'ers and they were Waggin,,,,Not Violently but they were waggin.....My other Concern would be the Weight taken off the Kingpin by having a Trailer Tagged back there..........But I think it will be ok....One of these days I will Go for it...:biggrin:

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      So here where I live in Newfoundland Canada, they let you drive your bike on the road provided it’s registered and insured same goes for crossing highways but on trails you don’t need to be insured. And I don’t even think you need a full license to insure your bike they said it was up to the insurance company. I’m trying to get my old 1985 Suzuki 250 registered they have to do a search for it to make sure it hasn’t been in anyone else’s name first. Hopefully it comes back clean I am pretty excited
