Until you can open the shed door and ride right to the trails, your deer blind, or the work site, you’ll need to haul your ATV or Side x Side sometimes.  That puts you squarely in the same boat as almost every other rider, and nothing would end your next adventure quicker than having your machine unload itself onto the road.  Whether you ride a Polaris, Yamaha, Can-Am or Arctic Cat, the one thing you must do is fasten it down securely.

Whether you ride an ATV, a sporty Side x Side, or a hard working UTV, if you’re going to haul it, you’re also going to need ramps.  Most ATV ramps easily handle the weight of the ATV and rider, but are dangerously overloaded with a Side x Side that is often more than double the quad’s weight.  Crashing to the ground as an undersized ramp collapses, and in the process screwing up your machine, your truck, and possibly you, is not the way to start a great weekend of riding.

No doubt it was shortly after the first vehicle was invented that somebody decided it would be a great idea to pull a wagon behind it and double the working capability.  The first problem they encountered was getting their little train rolling.  The second was more of a surprise when they tried to get it all stopped.  That desire to tow a trailer would never diminish though, and whether the load was a utility trailer or a heavily loaded semi, the problems of safely controlling and stopping the vehicle would always be a concern.
