When you are out looking at truck trailers to haul your ATV, there are a lot of options to consider. From what material the trailer is made out of to how big the wheels are to what side you load your ATV on, there is a lot to think about. Here are a few things you should consider when you are shopping for truck trailers in Minneapolis MN.
What is it made out of?
Most ATV trailers are made out of aluminum or steel. There are several pros and cons to both options. For example, aluminum is more lightweight, so you will use less gas when you’re hauling these truck trailers. But because this material is so lightweight, it’s also easier to dent or damage. Steel is much more sturdy, but they can develop rust over time. However, rust is easily avoidable with some regular maintenance and care.
Where do you load your ATV?
ATV truck trailers load from either the sides or the rear. Both have their advantages. Rear-loading truck trailers will generally be less expensive than side loading. But in order to get your ATV out of a rear-loading trailer, you have to back it out. Some people prefer not to do that, so they should opt for a side-loading trailer. With a side-loading trailer, you can pull your ATV in one side and then drive it out the other – no need to put it in reverse and back up!
How big are the tires?
ATV truck trailers usually come with tires that are four inches wide. However, you can sometimes find truck trailers with wheels that are eight inches wide. Wider tires will generally offer more stability than their thinner counterparts, but they will also usually cost a little more.
How big is the trailer?
ATV truck trailers come in a wide range of sizes, and some are enclosed while others are not. You will want to take into consideration how big your ATV is and how many you will be hauling at the same time. In general, there are two main frame styles to choose from. You can get a Y-style or a T-style. T-style truck trailers attach the tongue to the axle directly. Y-style truck trailers attach to the axle in two locations, and they also offer a broader frame area to hold the trailer.
