Ok.

I have seen several going down the road on goosenecks uvs put on sideways

Any of you all done this? If so what type of Ramps did you use? Do anything special. I need to haul 4 on my gooseneck if possible. The ramps I have say they hold 1500 lbs. but they are just 8ft aluminum ramps and quite honestly. I don't trust them to drive up on there sideways.

Looking for suggestions if you got any

Based on the wheelbase of the sxs.....will all four wheels be on the ramp simultaneously???

Most ramps are probably a little underrated.....IMO. I'd not get really worried about it.

On a sidenote.......be careful of prying eyes of DOT if the sxs's are over 102" in length. Max legal width is 102".....if there's much hanging over each side, it might be a ticket.

It's just shy under 10' One will fit in my to hauler garage with a couple inches to spare. I am not transporting for a dealer. Actually going on a ride. As far as ramps go. I would say at some point they will have all four on briefly. We are taking 6 units total. But if I can't get sideways then only 5. Was gonna put one volunteer on there to have in the mix with the challengers

118 is the total length. That may be way too much. But I see guys do it all the time it seems like with rzr's

When we went to Ashland resort a couple years ago I hauled mine sideways and cswamps regular on my 16 foot trailer. Mime stuck out a couple inches past the trailer fenders on both sides. Didn't have any issues though. I used the ramps for the back and moved them to the side. But where your trailer sits higher, you will need longer ramps.

How do the roofs and windshields do when loaded sideways

:iws

Id say 118" is too long to be hauled sideways. Probably would stick out a good bit. I think the RZR's are a little shorter than that. Im going to have to modify my 16' tag along to get my RZR and my in-laws Wildcat on it. That or trade up to an 18-20 footer.

Those machines look nice. I like the mirrors and windshields. If they are anything like as tough as a Rhino, id say they are great machines. How many cc's/horsepower?

We are going to wildcat. It's a work thing (this is when I really love my job)

They come in 500, 700, and 750 (crew cab). They come std with all of that equipment.

So far mine has been doing well. Been to black mountain twice with it. It's not the fastest but it's been going anywhere I point it. The price is right on them as well. You do get a lot of bang for the buck.

I must say I was skeptical. But it has impressed me. But i do have the urge for more power

What gsbrockman said...


102" (8.5') is the max legal width w/out getting a permit. A short trip in town you might could pull it off, but you hit an interstate and Vehicle enforcement see you... yea you're gettign stopped and a ticket, and maybe have to wait until you can have another trailer come take the sideways SxS, so you can continue legal.

A RZR comes in at 105" so only 3" over and maybe not worth a V/E (DOT) officer's time or trouble...

He is right, 102" is the most with out a permit, I would not try it in Ohio, PUCO pulls trucks over all the time, and I would put money on it they would like u too.
