Any suggestions on what size trailer to haul the Wolverine? I would like an aluminum trailer as small as I can get. Maybe several inches wider than the width of the Wolverine for wider tires/wheels.

Thanks!

I have 7 different pieces of rolling stock that I haul on my trailer with the heaviest single piece being the Wolverine. When I purchased mine I was unsure of the dimensions of all of my items so I purchased a 6 X 12 foot trailer.

This allows me to pull the chipper behind my kubota mower onto the trailer and haul both at once.

I actually back the chipper on so the chute sticks out the front of the trailer otherwise they will not fit. The chipper is 600 lbs. and the Kubota GR 2120 is 970 lbs.

I was looking for a good deal on one that didn't cost a fortune, settled on this 6x14 beast!

Does it pull all right on a trailer that small? When my dad bought his rhino, he had a 5x8 that it fit on just right, but he could never get enough tongue weight (put it on forward and backward) and it didn't pull good at all. He eventually upgraded to a 6x10.

Nope. No problems at all. The yamaha dealership had them brought in specifically for the wolverines.

Dimensions are 116.9 x 60.6 x 74.2 inches so at least a 6 x 12 ft.

You could actually quite likely get away with a 5' x 10' trailer, depending on the manufacturer. I say this because many trailers are sold under standard sizes such as 5' x 10', but may actually measure 60-63" x 120-123" inside widths, which means you could squeeze a stock Wolverine in no problem. I only says this because you asked for the smallest trailer you could get. My recommendation is to take a measuring tape with you to pick out a trailer, then you will know for sure.

I like the 10 ft length and it should work. Ideally 66"x120" would be perfect! Echo Trailers has this size. It is the Epic model.

The actual width of the wolverine measured at the rear wheels is 61.6" a full inch bigger than specs say. I purchased a 5-1/2' by 10' at tractor supply. Mine was $1300. Works perfect for my wolverine or ranger with a couple inches left on the sides. My ranger has bigger tires and wheels but the wolverine is still stock. Might be a little close with aftermarket tires and wheels on the wolverine.

5 1/2 x 10' is the size I am looking for. I am glad to see you have the same size and it works.

As I use my trailer for more than just hauling the 4wheeler or X2 I bought this 6.5' x 14' aluminum trailer, it only weighs like 670 pounds.

I am considering this exact trailer for my new WOLVERINE X4. Do you still like it and have you had any problems with it since you posted this? Also, because it only 10’ long, will it only fit an X4 if it is loaded facing backward? Thanks.
I have had that trailer for a couple years and mine is still good to go. I actually bought mine from a trailer dealer who honored the Northern Tool sales price and upgraded me with a Dexter axle with electric brakes for $200 including legal battery and wiring and he did a radial tire upgrade for $50, basically just the difference in cost of tires. It's worth asking. If you are inclined to do brakes these are the cheapest tag axles without lugs to bolt on the brake kits so you have to weld on the mounting lugs. $200 is about the cost of all the brake parts for a consumer. The tongue has room for a box which I carry at least two 5 gal gas jugs and straps etc. I tow my Gen 1 front forward and it balances well, I am sure the box and gas helps with the balance. I drive up and bump the front bar and strap my tires to it. I added some Drings at rear for rear axle strap down. Put a caster wheel on the front crank up and it moves easily around the driveway when empty.

Thats a very nice trail. Functional sides and good tire size for large load rating over and above its use.
