Welcome to PRC....

I just ordered a 8.5' wide X 18' Long Trailer that is 12" over standard height.

I have a 2" lift on my Ranger and run 27" tires. It will fit in a standard height, although you have to have one squat the back end down or let air out of the tires. A trailer that is 6" is ok, but with me being 6'5" and only pulling it behind a motorhome I decided to go with the taller one.

Most folks use 16' long, which is long enough I just thought that if I was going to have to order one, I might as well go ahead and think about the future.

I hope this helps ya.... Others will chime in as I know the Teleks have a nice trailer they can tell you about.

Hi Everyone. I am thrilled to join your forum. I have a 2007 XP-700 Mossy Oak on the way.

I am trying to do some homework on purchasing an enclosed trailer. Can anyone tell me the minimum rear door height I should look for? I am quessing 6'5" but I need a confirmation if possible. I might plan on adding larger tires down the road but now it is all stock.

BTW-- the search option on this website is not working for me. Driving me crazy actually.[B)]

Thanks for any help!!

Vin

Welcome to PRC and hope you get your ranger soon. If you plan on bigger tires or a lift kit you had better get a taller trailer right away. Most of the guys recomend 7' tall trailer.

Welcome to the PRC and congrats on the new Ranger. I also bought an enclosed trailer and the one thing that made the difference was the dove tail or beaver tail the last 4 ft of the opening. I have a lift kit and 27" Bighorns with a soft cab and so far works great. The trailer is 24" so I don't have to worry about room and can fit two Rangers with plenty room left.

I am confused? What is a dove tail? I have a nice trailer in my sights but the door height is only 6'. But interior is 6'6". Any chance a stock XP will fit?

I just got a new XP also. They measure 74 inches from the ground to the top of the cage. I would at least get something that is 4-6 inches higher if you are going to lift and put larger tires on it.

A beavertail floor is one that drops down at an angle from front to back which allows you to load through a small door opening because it puts the Ranger at an angle coming in. This is the way to go. I would go with a beavertail and a 7 ft. interior height if it were me. Also, the 8.5 foot unit will allow you to open the doors if you have a cab. I would love to have an enclosed trailer, maybe one of these days.

Welcome Vin! Whatever you do, plan on enough room for a lift kit and bigger tires. The Ranger is great just stock, but its awesome with aftermarket tires.

Welcome to the PRC and get the taller trailer, you will be putting on lift kit and bigger tires im sure and you will wish you had the higher trailer.

I made my own, couldn't find a trailer that had high enough doors when I have the snow tracks on. The inside is 8'H the doors 92"H - with a 2" prolift and my tracks on it's 85" give or take a couple of inches with snow on the tracks. With 2" lift & 27" bighorns the ranger is 78 1/2". The trailer is 14'L x 7 1/2'W - inside

You might want to decided if you are even going to mount lights up on top of cage as well.
