Will two 151 sleds fit (one forward, one reverse) in a 6x12 cargo with an 18” V? I know it’s going to be a tight fit but the 6x12 cargo trailers are substantially less expensive compared to a dedicated snowmobile trailer

Chalk out the inside trailer dimensions on the garage floor or concrete drive, then see if the sleds fit between the lines.

I have a 6x12 without the V nose.  It barely fits my short track and the kids ZR120.  I think you'd have a very hard time getting a pair of 151's in it.

If I had my sleds I would, but I haven’t bought my sleds yet

Yes it will. This is a picture of an expedition 154 and a 137 renegade but I have had the expedition and a 154 tundra in that same trailer.  I'm not saying its not tight but that expedition is a lot wider than a mountain sled.  They will fit.

Thank you sir. That’s a 6x12 with a small (approx 1.5’) V nose correct?

It is a Legend 6x12 the actual inside dimensions are 69.25" wide 142" long and the v is an additional 29".  Hope this helps.

Man that has me browsing trailer ads again HAHA! I just bought a sled from a guy that uses a small trailer like that to haul 2 sleds and that would be a lot easier, while traveling, to tow just 2 sleds in that instead of my family sled hauling 7.5' X 29' trailer haha


Breaks stuff. Often. Expensive stuff too.

Why not spend a tad more and for a 6x14 (plus 2’ v) cargo ? It’s a rounding error in terms of incremental cost and the extra length makes a huge difference.

Haven’t seen many 6x14 single axle trailers for sale. I believe because the payload starts to get too little when a 3500lb axle is used

This trailer configuration was purchased to be able to easily navigate small lake entrances. Yes I have a 27' inline and it would be much easier unloading and loading but good luck turning around or even getting stuck. Oh yes it's cramped but works for it's intended use.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing dsupercat!

 

I've been looking at 7x12 cargo style trailers to haul two 137" Renegades and they will fit with room to spare between them (parked opposed).  I like the narrower width of the 6' wide for visibility while puling.  By marking it out and measuring with my Renegade on the garage floor it looks like they would fit in a 12 or 14' long but be fairly close together on the sides 

 

Do you have much room to spare between the sleds to account for any movement while transporting (tied down of course) and getting on/off the second (back) sled when loading?

On the 154's there is only 2-3" or so I use a piece of rubber backed flooring on the floor boards of sleds just in case they do move.  137's I would say around 6-8".  Surprisingly I only get about 2-3 mpg better pulling this than my 27' with a diesel but when you are going 500 miles it adds up.
