Recently bought a new simple 7ft x 14ft utility trailer---dual axle with breaks.
Originally had a 4ft drop down tail gate. To steep to load the Slingshot, made
some extension ramps (2ft long) still not good. Went back to the dealer and he
ordered a 6ft ramp which we swapped out for an extra $150.00. Still just a
little steep, so we used the jack stand with the trailer still attached to the SUV
and raised the front end just a little. That gave us just enough to pull the
bike up without hitting bottom.

Got my company name on the Slingshot---going to have to put name on trailer---
just taxes
We set the Slingshot with about 1 foot open in front and 1 foot in back, puts
majority of weight over the axle. Got a Polaris Trailering Cover for going down the road. (Used the cover first of this week to bring a slingshot back to La Porte
from Northern VA--- worked great.)

Getting the oil changed in the Edge in the morning so we will be ready to head South about the 13 of January for 2 or 3 weeks. See some 'Sling' friends, some
Gold Wing friends and some family. And Stay warm for a few days....

Mr. Secrets, The only time you will see me on a trailer is headed
South in the dead of Winter when my wife wants to go South with me.
Looks like we are going to have a little riding weather the next few days.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Grizz272, don't have number but standard 7 x14 utility trailer with the
6ft ramp (standard ramp is 4ft) and than lifting the front with it attached to the SUV with the 'jack stand' just a little works just fine and no need to carry extra ramps. Macaws give a great diagram but
with his you need to carry the extra ramp.

@EjFord welcome to the dark side of Slingshot travel! The trailer looks great and I am glad it works well for you. Getting a piece of equipment that works well for is always a good idea. I think you will find that it gives you a lot more travel options. Merry Christmas my friend and hope to see you on a ride when it gets warm.
