Anyone else out there with a landscaping trailer with a 72 inch opening? ...ism up for suggestions. .just don't want to drop another 9 thousand dollars if I don't have to. .thanks!

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I have a 6' tall enclosed trailer and the door opening is about 4" shorter. My Wolvie won't even come close to fitting. I ended up buying a 7' enclosed customer trailer to haul it. It' 7' tall x 7' wide by 16' long. It's a pleaseure to load/unload. Keep in mind that once you load it you still have to get out of your quad and trailer. If my trailer was any narrower I would have to crawl out over the hood.

    I have 71" at my door. If I back in and the ramp angle is a little steep the cab clears. I have 75" inside and the Wolverine takes up 76" of that. If I get someone to sit in the back I can drive in with no problems. I can also take a ratchet strap through the frame to each rear a-arm and pull it down a couple inches.

    Larger tires or a lift kit may not be an option. Not having a roof will also give you about 3 more inches.

    My trailer doors are 74 inch clear and the Wolvy fits in with about an inch to spare. Once I put larger tires on I may have a problem. A steep ramp angle does help, but you will still need height of about 76 inch on the inside once it's loaded. Compressing the rear suspension with a ratchet strap is a good idea, I'm just not sure were to connect the strap??
    Deflating the tires will also work to gain an inch or so.

    My Sedona tires are about 3" taller than stock. So it raises my Wolvie by 1-1/2". I really need to check my clearance to see if I have enough room to add a 2" lift...maybe not!

    I had a trailer with a 72 "H opening. I new it would be tight so I took the roof off the first time I hauled it. I noticed lots of room when I pulled it in so when I loaded it back up I left the roof on and it fit fine with the angle of the ramps and the location of the axels.

    I just measured my Wolvie and it's 73" at the highest roof point. 2" more will put me at 75" which is exactly what my door opening height is. It'll be a tight squeeze. Might need some Vaseline.

    I think mine will squeeze in height wise, but how to get out of it once in is the question...???
