Seems like a toy hauler would have been an easier solution.


For hauling the RZR yes. For living in, probably not.

Sure you can set up chairs and beds in the garage area once the RZR has been offloaded, but it's a hassle to set it all up and tear it all down every time. The whole point of an RV for some people is to open the door to a ready-to-use house on wheels, not to have to spend half a day setting up furniture.

^Half a day, lol. I think it took longer to get out my lawn chairs than to flip the beds in to couches and stand up a table. But I’m a novice at toyhaulers so probably doing it wrong?? Maybe I skipped some steps?

Funny part about the buggy hanging off the back is it’s likely fairly well engineered. Icbw, but someone creative enough to do that might actually know what they’re doing. Not to say it’s something I’d consider though.

How can you tell from the picture that it is a 3/4 ton?

You can see the hub caps sticking out, only on 3/4 and 1 tons.

Trailer suspension wont take that very long. Thats an extra ton or more on the trailer axles.

That is true, at least he can unhook the RZR and get help when his Ram takes a poop.[emoticon]

Without adequate pin weight I don’t think he’d be on the highway. I had to add a few hundred pounds of counter weight up front to safely carry 1000 lbs behind my fiver. Would that UTV weigh 1200 lbs?


It appears to be a four seater RZR, probably around 1500. I'd sure like to see the welding ,and bracing to accomplish that.

Lot of naysayers ,but it looks to be working. Sure would like to know more about that setup.


Can't be a 4 seater, they are much longer than the unit pictured. That is 1400+ depending on the make model. My new Kawasaki KRX is just under 2K.

Swivel wheel carrier aren't considered double tow.

From someone who used to pull a swivel-wheel type behind his 5th wheel, don't bet the bank on that. State laws vary.

Leave it up to Ram owners to be blind and stupid.


The dodge fan boys hate the dodge/ram dealerships. Now that I have owned a Mexican Fiat Oui-Oui (La fiat wee-wee), I understand why.
The only thing more incompetent than Ram is Bye-don and his supporters.
