ATVs are extremely useful as both sports and utility vehicles, but space is lacking, even with built-in racks. A good ATV trailer increases the amount of space you have to transport objects and materials with your ATV without adding too much bulk. For some help finding the right trailer for your ATV, check out our in-depth review below.

  • Honorable Mention
    Gorilla Carts GOR1400-COM Heavy-Duty Steel Utility Cart with Removable Side
    Summary
    Summary

    One of the best budget-oriented ATV and hand-pulled trailers meant for use around the yard more than off-road.

    Pros
    Pros

    The sides of the trailer can fold down or be removed to make getting objects and materials on/off of the platform easier. Can hold up to 1,400 pounds of weight.

    Cons
    Cons

    Not compatible with a two-inch ball hitch, so it can only be used with basic tow-pin setups. Tires are not as rugged as proper off-roading trailer tires.

Tips

  • Choose an ATV trailer that offers the carrying capacity you need for typical work.
  • Make sure the ATV trailer is compatible with your ATV's towing mount before purchase.
  • Off-road trailers can be difficult to use around the yard since they are heavier and bulkier.

FAQs

Q. How do I pull an ATV trailer?

A. Most ATV trailers use a simple pin mount to connect to an ATV for pulling. A few also use ball hitch mounts instead.

Q. Can I dump stuff off of an ATV trailer?

A. There are a couple of ATV trailers that have a dump mechanism, but most are stuck in the horizontal position. Other trailers have folding or removable sides you can use to slide materials off of the trailer. 

Q. What makes a trailer suitable for off-road use?

A. The right tires are the most important part of an off-road trailer. Heavy-duty tires with decent traction can resist slipping and sliding around. The overall construction of the trailer should also be heavy duty.
