    Re: decks/enclosed,open trailers for snowmobiling

    I used to pull a 2 place trailer all the time and pu the buddy most days then finally clued in and thought wtf I'm his personal taxi. Then I bought a ramp and the sled rides in the back on my truck unless my son comes out then my 2-place open trailer works perfect. I also sled all the time around Fernie so my travel is very short

    I did notice,last trip, that my trailer brakes weren't working. I better get them fixed before I have a big fiery wreck and kill a whole bus load of nuns.

Sleds stay relatively clean up on deck and gear can all stay warm and dry in back seat. Any more than that and we take enclosed. A lot of the sledding stuff stays in there year round and I just gotta hook up,throw some stuff inside and away we go.

    Re: decks/enclosed,open trailers for snowmobiling

    I’ve owned 2 and 4 place open deck trailers, 5 decks, and two enclosed trailers (28’ heated and 19’ not heated), I prefer a deck, as the weight is on the truck, easier parking and access. That said, i don’t ride in larger groups these days, and often I ride areas that are difficult to stage from. So your needs/ group size may dictate a trailer. I also have a 1 ton with an 8’ box, the truck boss stays on the truck year round.
