Question: What size trailer will fit two atv's plus a lil space for gas tanks? Thanks

I'll take some pics of my setup for this weekend. We're taking the quads to the coast, same setup as in my way earlier shots. The black flatbed that loads two quads end to end is 12' long and they barely fit on. I'd rather side load the quads. So it really depends on how you are loading. Side loading you can get away with about 6'-6'6" wide and about 9' long on the deck. Should be roomy enough that way to throw gas cans on too. Watch your tongue weight, as mentioned in this thread, ~200 lbs is about all you want in these cars. The rough figure is 10% of the loaded trailer's weight should be at the tongue. You can finagle that number by moving the trailer axles forward or backward (kinda like an offcenter teeter totter). What I like about my heavy trailer is that I dont need bigger side mirrors to see around the quads when changing lanes etc. If they were side loaded I would have a mad scary blind spot.

Not the greatest shot of the trailer, but you get the idea. Loaded that trailer weighs in at 2400 lbs. It has brakes, but my car doesnt have a controller, so its up to the subie 4pots and aggressive compound pads all around (and lots of stopping distance just in case).

I had some rattle issues, but the Kartboy long hangers took care of that.

finally have the hitch on (no wiring yet):


towed it like a champ last night. We only have to go 1/4 mile each way so no lights and the mast stays up, but yeah, I could tell the WRX will be fine with this. A ramp launch will be interesting for the clutch though... It's funny how tall the boat looks behind the car -vs- behind my mom's truck. It's just way taller in the mirrors. It also backs much easier with the shorter car (not that it was a problem with the truck).

I ended up with a drawtite hitch. Not sure if I'll get it wired (they "got the wrong parts in"). I don't need it for my regular sailing as it's in a park where we just go 1/4 from the lot to the hoist or to a ramp. So no lights. At the ends of the season I could just use the truck, but it would be nice to have lights eventually. I'll probably have them done in the fall.

J24s FTL actually... Sure they have a nice fleet here and you can put together a program for ~$10k but our goal was something I can tow with the WRX (or MINI even, it's 1400lbs on the trailer) and something I can sail alone. The open kicks ass. Small sport boats are soooo much more fun.

I've come up through lasers, J24s, J37s, J35s, Etchells, a vector, a viper 830 and now this. It was between this, a viper 640, and a SB3. Our issue is the open is the slowest option around a course (similar to a J/24 or 22 in light, but will blow them away in anything ~12 and up) but the easiest to sail shorthanded...

Sweet, looking to get a hitch so I can finally lug my dh/fr rig around too. It's too bad there isn't a hitch with a quick disconnect feature, don't know if I can get past a hitch on the ride.

just got the curt put on today.

my passenger side mounts were all crossthreaded and ****ed after they pulled the bolts out, i don't know what the hell was the problem but they put an impact socket up in there straight away and now it's completely ****ed...

so they made a bracket, welded it to the hitch, and bolted the bracket to the tow hook mount. it looks ****ed but i am hoping i can tow a uhaul up 900 miles when i move next week.


i have rattles galore with my evo 2 muffler because that too was welded by a "professional" if you use the term loosely and it sits on the stock hangers about 5mm from the hitch.

so... provided the whole thing doesn't rip out' the ****ing frame driving up i-5, i have one question...

long hangers or new muffler?

How much more clearance does the curt hitch give compared to the drawtite/hidden hitches?

Go hangers first, because they're cheap and easy.
If that doesn't work, go with a new muffler. The prodrive is nice, not too loud and actually small compared to the stock can.

Anyone have a clue if any of these hitches will work with an apex gt-spec exhaust?

Great thread. I'll be towing a Uhaul 4'X8' trailer soon. Apparently the empty weight is 850 pounds. I don't plan to put too much in there. So, I figure for a 1500 mile drive it should be okay. I'll take pics when I do the move.
