Owning an ATV or UTV can provide such an amazing experience, because it provides the opportunity to explore off-the-beaten-path locations typically unreachable otherwise. Those journeys are often spent with families, friends, and others who share that bond for exploration. If you’re not lucky enough to have access to those trails from your own property, the only choice is to transport those machines to a riding location. If you’re like me, that often means hauling at least four machines. When UTV’s weren’t as popular, I could fit four ATV’s on my 16’ Aluma trailer. Nowadays, with the popularity of UTV’s, as well as the sheer size of some, they can take up the valuable trailer space of two, or sometimes three ATV’s. I was searching for a solution that would allow me to haul an ATV in my truck while I’m also towing a trailer. Unfortunately, since my Toyota Tundra is a Crewmax, the short 5.5’ bed means the only way I can haul anything but a youth ATV in the bed is with the tailgate down. Herein lies problem number two…due to the height of my deckover trailer, the tongue will impact the tailgate when traveling down the highway. So, I needed to find a way to haul a full size ATV in a short bed truck with the tailgate still up. It might be easier to find a four leaf clover, an honest politician, or a unicorn farm.
