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).

I need suggestions..My 450r is a pain in the you know what to load because its just too wide for my truck (colorado) and the tires have to wedge between the wheel wells to fit..and its pretty much impossible to load unless theres atleast 2 people there.

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.
