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.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
