The weight of a UTV trailer is a significant factor when choosing the best UTV to purchase. Each utility terrain vehicle has a specific purpose, and for it to achieve this purpose, a specific weight is required, hence, the variation in the weight of each trailer.
The average weight of utility terrain vehicle trailers is between 545 and 680 kilograms (1,200 pounds and 1,500 pounds). Most two-seat UTVs weigh between 1,200 pounds and 1,600 pounds. Utility UTVs weigh more than that, usually up to 2,000 pounds. Youth UTVs weigh between 400 pounds and 700 pounds.
It would be best to answer some essential questions before deciding the best UTV trailers to purchase. Questions like: can your SUV or truck haul the UTV? Can your trailer support the weight of the UTV you want to purchase? These questions determine the most suitable UTV trailer for you.
What Are The Most Popular Utility Terrain Vehicle Trailers?
In North America, UTV manufacturing companies are booming in sales. There are many innovative improvements to existing utility terrain vehicles to improve versatility and rider comfort while exploring outdoors.
It would help if you took note of a few things; these will help you determine the correct weight of the UTV trailer you should purchase.
- The weight usually given of a UTV trailer is the dry weight unless it is stated otherwise. A UTV's dry weight is its weight without gasoline, oil, or other fluids.
- Some manufacturers use what they refer to as wet weight, also called ready to ride or curb weight. Wet weight is the weight of the UTV with all standard equipment, a full tank of gasoline, and other fluids.
- There is something called the gross weight. This is the weight of the UTV and the total load it is designed to carry, including riders and optional equipment.
Keeping this in mind will help you understand these terminologies when you see them, and you can decide the best UTV trailer that would meet your needs. Let us look at some of the most popular UTV trailers and their weights.
