I'm looking for a trailer to pull behind my ATV and was just wanting to know what everyone else is using. It will stay at the lease and I would prefer that it be about the same width at the 4 wheeler so its easier up in the woods. What is everyone's recomendations/experience?

I have a buddy who has one like this. He really likes his and pulls it with his Ranger.

That's what I'm looking for only if it was a foot less in overall width. Behind a ranger its about the same width I would think, but I'd be catching trees all the time.

Golf cart trailers are cheap and will haul your ATV back and forth if needed.
I pull one behind my Honda Rancher 4x4 and just watch where I'm going.
big enough to haul a 4x4 or 4x6 blind also.

That being said, I'm building a skinnier one for mine with golf cart tires that will track with the Rancher...LOL!!

I just bought a 5x10 trailer with a ramp for hauling my 4 wheeler to the lease and such. There's a couple of spots that my truck just can't fit through so I hooked it to the 4 wheeler and it pulled great. 18 bags of corn, 2 feeders, bunch of extra junk and my wife.. It never missed a beat. I've got a sportsman 570.

My lease is pretty rugged and initially I tried pulling the ATV trailer I haul it with. Ripped most of the lights off and dented the fenders up in 1 trip. Bought one of the small Harbor Freight assemble it yourself trailers off Craigslist for $100. No floor so I strapped a wooden pallet to it and it fits perfectly. Slightly narrower wheelbase than my Foreman 4x4, and works perfect.

I use a single jet ski trailer that I shortened the tongue, added a deck, and pulled the fenders off. It tracks close enough behind the atv that trees aren't an issue.

Here's one that I picked up at Northern Tool and Equipment and tricked out a bit. It's a tilt type so that you need not unhitch it from your ATV to slide a deer or hog onto the back.

It's a 4x6 that I picked up on sale for around $400 as best as I can remember.
