    Howdy everyone!

    Looking like Iíll be picking up a 2019 Wolverine X2 R-Spec in camo next week! Only concern is making sure I can haul it with my 5x9 trailer, measured inside the rails. I measured one and looks like it should fit, just really tight. I could get a bigger trailer, but it would be a very tight fit where I store it. And the 5x9 is a great size for towing deer blinds, etc, around our deer lease.

    Anyone else use a trailer that small???

    You will need to rear load it to put the weight on the tongue. Even then I think you will have an extreamly hard time with it. 6.5 x10 is usually the smallest you can go. My 6.5x10 trailer just fits it my x4 comfortably.

    I use a 6 x 10 and my [email protected] r SPEC fits just fine. gives you room around on both sides. If you have a gate on the back of your trailer , You will have to rear load it so the back can hang over the front.

    With your 5 foot trailer just know it should measure around 59 inches wide tire to tire - so is it a true 60 inch inside of the trailer or do you have any wiggle room. Its going to be extremely tight.

    It’s a true 60”x108” inside, short rear gate that folds in half so the bed will overhang the gate. Also the axle is set back further than most trailers I’ve seen - I have a Grizzly 700 I haul now and can park it on back part of trailer and still have weight on tongue.

    Not ruling out putting on trailer rearward, but with it being so tight I’d prefer to park forward. Any idea the center of gravity on the X2 front to rear?

    I know it’ll be tight, but the trailer is already a tight fit for my storage building and don’t want it to sit out in the weather. I have looked at a 5.5x10 trailer just in case. That’s the widest I can possiby go.

    Welcome to the forum RCF! Another trick to make a Wolverine a little narrower is to add a lift. With my 2" lift, I lost 3/4" of width up front and 1-3/8" width on the rear.

    The center of gravity is toward the center, rear where the engine is mounted I believe.

    Good to know! I may eventually look into that, as I’d like a slightly more aggressive tire as well!

    Thanks! I was thinking it would be fairly centered, but wasn’t sure.

    I’ll know soon enough if it will work!
