    2020 Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000 EPS Northstar Edition

    Recently purchased a 2020 Polaris Ranger Crew Northstar Edition and looking for trailer recommendations. I have considered 7 x 14 Aluminum single axle but wonder if this will be adequate as the Northstar checks in at 2300#. I wont likely do many long road hauls but want to be safe and secure when I do. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Most mfgrs have a load rating on their trailers based on axle, tires and springs.
    A trailer with a 3500# capacity or axle weight should serve you well. In my area there are many out there.

    You also what to make sure you consider anything else you may want to haul and if you are going to haul anything with you machine. A double axle trailer will tow much nicer than a single.

    With a machine that large and heavy you will thank yourself going double axle. You will also thank your self later on getting one a bit bigger than needed for just the machine. At some point you will want to bring some extra gear or something. Also, the bit of extra room will give you more options and a little breathing room while strapping down. Just my .02....you seldom hear about anyone regretting going a little bigger than they need to get by.

    Bigger is always better. I just recently purchased a 34 foot trailer so I can haul multiple machines when family and friends want to come alone.

    I looked at them but really wanted aluminum and could beat the deal.

    I had to sell my tandem trailer and go back to a single axle due to where I park. We live in a subdivision and I have to back between the houses to park in my back yard. Visualize being on a 2-lane street, pulling past your opening, now turning the wheel to back between two houses. As the tandem trailer crosses over the gutter onto MY WIFE'S LAWN, one of the tires has to skid a bit in the turn and scrapes up MY WIFES LAWN! (Kind of like driving on your lawn with positive traction engaged.) So I went back to a single axle with a #3500 axle and a useful loaf of about #2500. Having gone thru several trailers I've found Down-to-Earth trailers sold by Reedy Branch Equipment Company in Pearson, GA to have the best deal, quality and service in my area.
