From zipping along the backwoods trails to traversing through mountainsides, your ATV takes you to all kinds of places that you normally would not be able to go. Owning an ATV sure is rewarding, but owning an ATV also means you have to have a good trailer to haul it to where you plan to ride. There are all kinds of ATV trailers on the market, but it is best to know how to pick the high-quality models from the bunch so you know you will get a good trailer for your money. Here are a few of the features to look for in a high-quality ATV trailer.
The trailer has an integrated jack on the tongue with a foot for stabilization.
When you disconnect your Trailer from your truck, it will have to be unloaded if the trailer is not outfitted with its own integrated jack. The best quality ATV trailers have a jack on the tongue that you can operate with your foot to bring down a stable foot that will hold the trailer sturdy on its own. This allows you to leave your ATV still loaded on the trailer when you need to unhook from the trailer and be on your way.
The trailer is outfitted with heavy-duty steel ramps for easy loading and unloading.
You can pick up basic ATV trailers that do not have loading and unloading ramps, which will leave you having to carry around makeshift ramps wherever you take your ATV. It is much better t invest a little more in a trailer that has an integrated ramp to load and unload your ATV as needed. Some trailers have a solid-surface ramp that closes up like the bed of a truck when it is not in use, but yo can also find models that have simple fold-forward or slide-forward ramps that you lay or pull out when you need to load or unload your ATV.
The trailer has a durable finish that can stand up to the weather and off-road environments.
If you are like most ATV riders, your favorite pastime can take you through some pretty rough terrain. Therefore, the trailer that you use to haul your ATV should be just as durable as the ATV itself. Look for a trailer that has a solid floor, either made from treated hardwood slats or bars of steel. If the trailer has a powder-coated finish, that is an added advantage to keep the finish protected when you roll through brush and the mud.
