Iím using rear Honda atv rims and tires and the tires are barely touching the trailer. So with a load in the trailer and the tires squatted they would really rub. Iím gonna see if I can get the 2.5Ē

Default ATV trailer re-build

What a pain in the @ss. Iím shipping the spacers back today and having to reorder the 2Ē spacers (biggest they offer).
The tire tread on the edge of the new 4 wheeler tire hits the bolt shown below so I need a tiny bit more space. I hope itís all worth it when itís al said and done. The tire size difference is huge. In the bottom pic the tire is just leaning against the trailer so I can think about how cool it will be

I do have a front board that I need to trim and install. I also want to use some small square tubing to run along the top of the angle iron. Across the front and down the sides, like bedrails

Is the issue with the center offset of the rims? Iíve actually mounted some rims with the valve stem to the inside to address this issue. A little awkward when you need to air up a tire but otherwise fully functional.

Never thought about that..... thankfully the wheel adapters fixed the issue.
I bought some slime today to put in the trailer tires. Canít wait to get some blood in it and take a buck back to camp.

I think you will find these things are game changers for getting work done at a hunting camp.

Made the trip out west on Thursday and put the ďgame changerĒ to the test.
Itís a game changer for sure !!! Workhorse !!! I had an alfalfa bale, 2 30lb blocks and 9 bags of corn and it handled business.
Pics from out west !





Oh my itís hot !!!




Iím sitting on my tailgate and a baby coon pops out and a couple of does walk out 20 yards from me.... that pipe to the right is our cleaning rack. Lol





First dove of 2018, end up with 8 (shot at 28 hahaha)
Found a few shed while looking for birds

You’re gonna absolutely LOVE that trailer. I think I said it before, but it’s hands-down the best investment I’ve made to upgrade my ATV/UTV’s ability to work. Total game changer for what I’m able to accomplish.... It works all year long and in the fall/winter even makes it easier to load deer.
