Since a Mule on a trailer does not fit in a normal sized two car garage (height)..... Does anyone store a Mule (or Polaris, or whatever) in your home garage? And also store a trailer next to it? So, basically your two car garage now stores a Mule in one spot and a trailer in the other?

Is it a royal pain when your ready to load up or when you get back home?

Mule stays in the garage, trailer stays outside. My vehicle is worth way more than the trailer so it has priority. Hookup trailer, load mule, strap down and hit the road. I have a chain already mounted on the front of the trailer to lock the front down, I only have to chain strap the rear and I'm done. Really not much of an issue. I spend more time loading all the other hunting gear than I do the Mule.

Just about everything I own stays under a roof. It lasts a heck of a lot longer that way.

Thanks. I am basically trying to justify a purchase of a Mule. If I bought one, I would need to keep both the trailer and the mule in the garage. Each in their own space. Sounds like itís easy enough to load up and go. In a dream world, my garage would be tall enough to store the mule on the trailer, but just donít have that option. I also really donít have the option to store the trailer outside.

When I had my arctic cat SXS, I stored it on the 5x10 trailer in my standard two car garage. Here's the trick. I had a tilt trailer. Let's say I'm outside and ready to put everything away. I would back the SXS into the garage as far as it would go (touching the wall). Then, I would push the trailer in by hand, tilt the trailer, and get the leading edge of the back of the trailer up against the front tires of the SXS. At this point I chock the trailer tires. Then, I hop in the SXS and drive it onto the trailer, which causes it to tilt back down. I pin the trailer so that it can't tilt, and then push the trailer with the SXS on it as far back into the garage leaving a little room behind it to walk. To get it it out, it was essentially the reverse of the aforementioned process.

Yes, it was a pain, but it worked and left the other stall open for my wife's vehicle. I sold the whole package, recently moved, and now have more garage space than I know what to do with. Go figure.

I would hate to think of what my life on my property would be like without a side by side. I will never go back to a regular 4 wheeler. I have a 2010 honda big red and that thing has been outside it's entire life and never given me any trouble. Just changed the batter this week. The SXS is just so damn useful.

My 2005 mule stays outside at the property 24/7. I do park it under a tree and drap a tarp over the dashboard. I just don't have room at home.

I would wind up sitting in my SXS in my living room with that "Wha' happened?" look.

It amazes me as to why someone would care what someone else does with their money. Some of actually use them daily and wish to protect our long term invest. Plus we aren't all a wedge-azz. grin

Kendon makes a nice foldable trailer that you can fold and store upright next to the utv. Would get you back to using only one space. Pricey but very nice and you can find them 1/2 off online used if you look around a while.


Take Care,
Bub

Not sure I know what youíre asking? How much more clearance do I need in my garage to keep a Mule on a trailer and back it into my garage? Not sure, but probably a couple feet.

Brace and install a winch high on the side garage wall. Back the empty trailer in and hook to winch, crank it up, brace and store on its side along the garage wall. Back the Mule next to the trailer and shut garage.
