Trailer

What size trailer is actually needed to haul the viking around? I mainly keep it at the ranch but would like a small trailer instead of having to pull my large trailer everywhere. Found a good deal on a 5x10 but for some reason im thinking I need a min of 6' width

I just got a 6.5 x 12, works great, ive heard some say 6x10, but it would be tight fit in there. Plent of room left in the 6.5 x 12. Mines a Big Tex 35SA.

6x10 would be be tight, if ya go with 6.5x12, ift would give you some extra room for other stuff.

I brought mine home on my double wide snowmobile trailer. It is only about 8.5 ft square and was a very scary trip. The wheels of the machine just barely fit from side to side. I only had a couple inches to spare. The bed and hood hung over the sides quite always, but it was strapped in good and never moved. Needless to say we got allot of looks taking it home, I am not sure it was the Viking itself they were looking at or the fact it looked bigger than the trailer as it went down the road. I definitely would not want to take it any distance without a 12 ft long trailer. A 10 ft might be ok for a short trip. My 8.5 ft one was only good to get home from the dealer and not pay delivery charges.

I have a 5' X 10' that I am modifying friday. I think that I will need to go at least 64" wide to have a good ride.

I have mine on a 6x10 with about 3 in on each side. But with 30x10 tires that was the smallest I could go. No room for anything else but the viking pulls nice on it. And its easier than downloading it out a ford pickup longbed lol

Wow talk about clearance, at least airing out the tires you can get some decent space at the top to work with, and at least airing out the tires works.
