    CanAm Maverick X3 MAX DS Turbo R

    Group I need some advice. After searching the web with no good recommendation. I thought I would turn to forums. I have a new 2019 Can Am Maverick X3 Max R. I'm only 2 miles from Silver Lake Sand Dunes. I would really like to tow it in Dune Ready. I can build a tow bar to hook onto the front bumper. If I have a driver and the motor running, do you see a problem with flat towing it 2 miles at 25 mph? There are people in my campground that do this with their RZR's without issues, but I haven't seen anyone do this with a Can AM.

    I’ve seen @Curt and @Dave tow their old rzr’s with a tow bar up there before. It seemed to work ok for them except Dave had a blown belt when he got back. No idea what caused that.
    I don’t know enough about the cam am drive system to recommend either way.
    On a side note, they really do make it a PITA up there. One of the main reasons I don’t go often. It’s especially a pain when you haul in a toy hauler and your trailer becomes your house for the weekend...:confused::cool:

    I’ve towed my rzr several times with a tow bar. You don’t need a driver, it will track. I leave it running in neutral so the clutch doesn’t bind on the belt.

    Been to Silver Lake twice, to much hassle for me. Having to wait in line for vouchers then sit in line waiting to get in etc...to much hassle. Prefer going to St Helen or Baldwin, both have great riding with little to no hassle. Mich is veey atv/utv friendly and many places to ride without the hassle of the dunes.
