Covered trailer that works for snowmobile or 4-wheeler

7 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of getting a snowmobile and a covered trailer. The one where the cover is lower not the U-Haul box type of trailer. Will these work with a 4-wheeler or are they too low? Any brands to look for? If they are high enough I would assume I would have to install some kind of eyehook for the tie-downs for the 4-wheeler.

Not exactley sure what type you are talking about but I can tell you this; I had a 8x10 enclosed snowmobile trailer (black aluminum enclosure that is angled at the front) and the lift mechinism was in the middle. I could get 2 newer sled in there but it wasn't pretty, I never tried it but 2 full size 4 wheelers would probably not work, if it did it would be a huge pain getting them in and out of there.

If I was going with a snowmobile trailer I would get at least an 8.5' x 10 and one with the lift mechanisms on the outside. Even then it might be tight. I would take a lot of measurements and maybe bring a wheeler with to try it in there.

You don't want to be trying to horseshoe a couple wheelers in there that barely fit when it's cold and rainy some night.

Are you talking one of those clam type trailers?

I don't know what they are called. Muskie Junkie described it pretty well. They have a top this is usually triangular and it lifts up from the rear with supports to hold it open. They are lower and more areodynamic than the box-type, enclosed utility trailers.

I know you can get four wheelers in the Floe Protector, have buddies with a 4 place Floe Protector, and they haul their wheelers in it all the time.

I have a Snocap which is made in Montrose, MN. You may have seen then on the road. They are black canvas covers that custom fit your trailer. I have had mine for 3 years now and has been fantastic. Much cheaper than the hard covers with the sane effect. Give them a look and you will not be dissapointed.

Thanks for all the replies. The Snocap sound very interesting. I'll check them out.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
