Although I love riding with my little on on his ZR120 he is only 2 so unlike most of you I have been trying to get his sled to go as slow as possible . Hence my desire to transport the kids with alternate means. Has anyone had any luck with these? They seem a bit expensive but they claim to be able to carry once adult and a child so for two children they should be able to be used for a long time.

Ok, Taz where do I start. I bought one back in 03 and when you can keep the kids in there they are great! As you can see we use bike helmets, much lighter while in there and booster seats so they can see out before they fall asleep. But, I have to keep going , once I stop they want out and play. I put wheels on for the summer and pull them with the ATV and they have a ball. But, in the winter at least my son 4 1/2 he wants to ride up front with me. I would rather have him in the trailer but I'll keep trying. So, it depends on your kids but I love it!

As far as room how long do you think you will be able to use it before they get to big to be inside together? I also saw one on line for sale that had a small heater installed that ran off the snowmobile engine? I like the bike helmet idea. Thanks for the input. Your son looks ready to take off on your Patriot. How much did you pick yours up for?

They are pretty roomy inside there. I have rode back there with my son and so has my 65 year old mother. But, she had a hard time getting out. And I don't think you'll need a heater, I had to add extra vents because the windows kept fogging up from your breathe. And I think I paid $1500 for mine. I bet you can just run a 12v heater back there if you want. But, we always just dress the kids with their suits so when we stop they can play in the snow. I did change the metal skis to some old plastic Cats skis I had around, so it would be quieter over roads and the lake when the snow was low. Good Luck!

With your experience, did you ever have any problems with 2-stroke fumes from the tow sled?

Or for that matter... anyone's input would be appreciated regarding this issue.

Thanks for the update...

I use the same brand as well!

I'm looking into one (the equinox) as well. We have our first grand daughter. She will be 16 months old in January and I thought it would be great to find one to pull behind the XF this winter.

Good luck, it will work great for her, just use the car seat and she can see out better!
