Hopefully getting a Viking in a week or two.

Currently own a 06 Kodiak.

Kodiak fits in the back of the truck, but would like to a trailer that would fit both.

Was thinking 14' trailer, Kodiak (3'-7") sideways and Viking (10'-2") lengthwise?
Flat top, no rails.......

Will it work?

Also......Kodiak (sideways) up front or on rear on trailer?

Thanks for the suggestions

Welcome to the site!!!!!

I'd go with a 14' with side & rear ramps. Load the quad from the side, Viking in the rear. But a 16' would give you extra room. I've always liked the pipe top trailers

Be smart and buy your second trailer 1st!!! I learned the hard way :) but still did not learn my lesson.

Started with a 24' basic enclosed trailer, then moved to a 28' enclosed with all the bells and whistles. Since then bought a 7x16 enclosed and a 22' open with 14,000gvw, not to mention the open snowmobile trailer and open homemade trailer, boat trailer and PWC trailer. :) ****, its a full time job keeping the trailers in check :)

I plan to use my 28' enclosed to squeeze the Viking and 3 full size ATV's.

I guess what I'm saying is buy one size larger, you won't regret it.

I began the trailer buying process about a month ago. Called a local trailer factory that mass produces them and added a few customizations which drove the price up too much. Checked on Big Tex Trailers, read they have had paint problems over the long term. Ended up going with a PJ C5 18' car hauler trailer with dual brake axles, powder coated paint, ramps, led lights, 5000lb axles, etc. Was only about $300 more than the cheap customized trailer and the Big Tex. Couldn't pass it up. Last weekend i loaded my grizzly across the front the the viking in the rear, worked great. PJ's are probably a little more expensive than most but it is a rock solid trailer that i can also haul my tractor on if need be.

Agree with GNXGuy, buy the better one and the right size first.

For both I suggest at LEAST a 16ft. I currently have a 6 X 12 and you'd need another 4ft even if ATV is turned sideways....JMO

I sold a PJ trailer last year, a 22' with the steel bed. I just ordered its replacement, a 16' with the steel bed and LED lighting. The trailer without the lighting and extras was only $2,900. I like their enclosed lights. I ordered the charcoal to match the truck. They also have a spare holder and extra tiedown hooks that lock into the bedrails. Another plus is instead of having to pull the ramps from the side, this one pulls from the rear. A big plus is having tandem axle, which gets rid of most of the vibration and bumps compared to a single axle. I have an enclosed trailer, but there is no way to load it because of the Viking's height. Make sure you get a spare, cuz you never know. In Colorado, it is best to either take the tires off the trailer if it is going to sit a while, or just jack up the trailer. The UV rays kill us here. Also, if you park the trailer on concrete, it will cause the tires to crack and weather quicker. Trailer tires aren't cheap. Good luck with your trailer and enjoy the Viking. I still need to put miles on mine, so that I can get its first service.

Ughh, buying the trailer simply to transport the Viking is such a pain, especially since I will probably only move it one time with the trailer ever. Whatever is the cheapest option is what I will go for.

If you only need it once try renting a U-Haul trailer.

Not sure I ever heard anyone say.....****, I wish I got a trailer the next size down.

It's like a pick up truck, it gets used WAAAAAAAYYYYYY more than you would think.
