With over night riding trips in the works, I just did not have enough room when hauling two quads, so I did a mod to the trailer.







under the wheels there are 4 compartments and a big area under the axles





The front compartment has 2 helmets, with room for 4. The back one has 4 chairs.



The center area has 2 duffle bags holding a large canvass tent, grill, 5 gal gas can, gallon sprayer and 2 foot to spare. Tools take up 1/2 of one chamber. Still plenty of room to go




quad loaded with previous storage container



The whole assembly is removable and breaks down into 4 parts for storage.

I can't believe how cool this is. Is it tippy on the road at all?

It doesn't appear that it will be top heavy. Each sheet of 3/4" plywood weighed about 50-60#, so that is another 100+ gvw + all the poop.gif I am going to bring along just because I have the room.

It didn't cost much

wood $50
hinges $25 ($3x8)
weather strip $10
other hardware $10
anti slip strip $10 - will probably add a 2nd - it is necessary -the first time I loaded I slid about 6"

I need to pimp out the quad now - it looks like an Autorama display sitting so high :lol:

That's a real nice job! I'd get too nervous without the rails though. My straps have let loose before and the rails were the only thing to hold my quad in the trailer .

:stupid: yea, that would make me nervous...but it looks good guy grin.gif i know how crucial storage space can be driving a pick-up. I put a bedbox on mine, which works pretty well grin.gif and it locks if i need too

I did the same thing to mine, Refa. But my bed box was a bit smaller and actually fit in the rails of the trailer. I cut out a notch in the deck for it to drop right in. grin.gif
