I use to have to do it all the time, expect coolant to leak out if you have a liquad cooled, shut the fuel off...try not to fill up the quad until u get to your destination, and I placed a mat under the grab bar to not leave rub marks on the floor.

I saw a video a long time ago that showed a platform in the bed of their truck that was the length of the bed plus it extended past the bumper. It had a recieved that slid into the hitch. That was how he locked it in. The cool thing was that the ramps hooked right up to this platform, The platform also had tie points for the Quad and tie to the truck.

My question is : does anyone know where I can find a manufacturer for this ?

I remember that post from about a year or so ago, it was custom made. Would work well but not be easy to take on/off as it would be very heavy unless you made it in pieces.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Sorry for my late response. I failed to "subscribe" to the thread and assumed that because I wasn't getting emails, the thread was DOA. My bad.

I have a WW FS2500 and am loading a Polaris RZR and two other polaris ATV's in there. There is no way to fit them all in on their tires so I will have to tip them back.

I tipped up one of the ATV's in the garage and learned (as has been suggested) that I have to turn off the fuel petcock. Also, with a full tank, it slowly leaks out of the filler cap. If those are my only problems, it will be a great solution and I will be able to fit all three machines in the toy hauler.

I will be adding more tie-down hooks and using a board to protect the floor where the back ATV rack contacts the floor. I'll post a photo when I finish. Leaving on the first outing in 3 weeks. Yay!

If you clamp the vent hose coming off the gas cap it stops the leak and no worries. I have to do that on the LT80 but the others never leak a drop.

Due to the weight of the Raptor, I ended up keeping it in the trailer and just put the three Kymco's up there.
