What to Look for in ATV and Snowmobile Trailers for Sale

Is this the first season that you’re planning to purchase a snowmobile or ATV trailer? If so, you’re probably knee-deep in advertisements for trailers for sale. These ads can seem confusing, especially for the novice trailer buyer. The good news is that with a little preplanning, you can absolutely find the right trailers for sale that will meet your needs.

Some of the considerations you need to keep in mind when exploring ATV and snowmobile trailers for sale include:

  • Type of Enclosure – Do you feel comfortable having your ATV or snowmobile exposed to the elements, or would you prefer to have a trailer that completely encloses what it’s carrying? Enclosed trailers will cost more, but they will also keep your ATV or snowmobile out of the elements when it isn’t in use. They can also be utilized to store the ATV or snowmobile, as long as you clean it before storing.
  • Type of Ramp or Lift – How do you want to get your snowmobile or ATV onto the trailer? Some trailers come equipped with ramps that allow you to drive your ATV or snowmobile right onto the trailer bed. Others have special lifts to make it simple. You’ll pay more for efficiency, but it could be worth it to you.
  • Type of Trailer Size – Trailers for ATVs and snowmobiles come in many different lengths and widths. You’ll have to think about not only how many ATVs or snowmobiles you want to tow at once, but also about the vehicle you’ll be using to tow the trailer. If you have any questions about what makes sense, don’t hesitate to give Reinhart Trailers a call.
  • Type of Wheels/Tires – You’ll want to consider the type of terrain you’ll be driving your trailer onto when you’re going out for a snowmobile or ATV adventure. Is it going to be rough? Make sure the tires and wheels are up to the challenge!

Of course, you would also be wise to look for amenities for your snowmobile or ATV trailer, such as salt protection and protective coatings. Know, too, the types of maintenance that you need to expect as a trailer owner.

When you’re ready for service for your snowmobile or ATV trailer, we invite you to bring it in to us at Reinhart Trailers!
