a bolt together trailer with burn-em-up tires on it... I'd beg and borrow until you can afford a better option. Also if you're handy, you can find some smoking deals on decent trailers on craigslist. got my 14' tandem axle on CL for $750 I'm put about $500 into it over the last 3.5 years and it's practically brand new now. at least the parts that matter are brand new. were I to buy it brand new I'd be looking at $2k-$2.5K for the same sized trailer without all the little extras I've added to it over the years.

Either check out CL, or find someone who does fab work. An axle kit can be had for under $200 bucks. Have someone build a frame for you, and then put on a wood deck. My father in law built my trailer for be based on specs I gave him. Only cost me ~$300 in parts. Granted, he did the labor for free...

I used one for a couple of years, and there are those who will swear by them. For $300 it will get you by for a while, but if you put a lot of miles on it, keep a close eye on those little 12" tires. They will come apart. Remember, you are putting a $10,000 quad on a $300 trailer.

I agree, oK for short or temp if your aware of the limitations. ;).

MUCH BETTER OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE!!

Do you have a Tractor Supply near you? They sell trailers and although still not up to top quality far better with welded frames and better steel.

I know it's expensive investment but let what Bob said sink in for a minute. Your loading a 10,000$ machine on a 300$ trailer...

Do you have a pickup? Invest in good ramps that's a safer option!

It's the same thought when it comes to your tie down straps. why are you buying the cheapest possible strap to secure a $5k-$10k machine?

I think you'd be ahead of the game if you save your money and wait to get a decent trailer.
