Who uses an enclosed trailer for their Polaris Ranger? I'm considering one for hauling and storing Ranger at lease. While there, it will double as a very simple bunk room for sleeping during winter only. Really trying to eliminate the haul trips with Ranger and trailer each trip to lease. Researching minimum sizes and ability to secure load.

Height is the biggest issue.

That's exactly what I did, I bought one in 2017. It's a Wells Cargo "roadforce" cargo trailer model RFV85X162. I ordered it and had it insulated, two windows install, electrical plugs, lights and switches. Interior height is 6'7" and interior width is 8'. I added a couple of narrow twin beds that fold up and it works great. My Ranger is a 570 mid-size and it fits easy. These type trailers are sealed tight, I have never had a mouse in this trailer. Every RV I have ever owned, the mice have taken it over. Whatever trailer you get, just make sure the opening is tall enough. My entry on my trailer is dovetailed, so that helps.

That's good info, parking here at home is limited to my narrow side yard and a tough angle backing in from alley. Sounds like you thought it out well.

totally agree with this. I looked for similar for my RTV900 but it barely fits under my 7' garage door, be sure the opening height is a little taller than your UTV.

I leave my trailer at the deer lease year round but I bring Ranger home after deer season.

These trailers are the best thing to use aside from maybe a cargo container but I don’t have access to a trailer to move a container and giving it moved outweighs the positives. So a cargo trailer was the best option. I may upgrade to a 20-24 foot trailer in a few years, but for now the 16 foot is serving its purpose. I insulated walls and roof with R-13 crammed in there and she is pretty warm, quiet, dry and BUG FREE still after 9 years.

Pretty sure I will move in this direction. I'll need to sell this: https://texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/8325909/2

It is great, I've never had a bug, mouse or a leak. I never even took food in it, only a water bottle. Rats and mice smell something to eat or drink and you got company. It's easy to move, fits on my utility trailer being 6'-3" x 12". It also breaks down, need be. Time is on my side, no hurry but really want to be able to combine lodging and the ability to haul my Ranger.
