Sled: '96 ZR 440, '99 ZR 440 Sno Pro
Well, I've been looking for a decent 2 sled trailer for awhile now...not that I go places real often, but it would be nice to be able to throw one sled in the back of my pickup and a couple others on the trailer. The only sleds that would ever be used on these trailers are a '96 ZR 440 SP, a '97 Jag 440, a '93 Wildcat, or a '93 Jag 440....perhaps my old '75 Panther when I finish it. My question is, I found a local guy selling a trailer that's in great shape, but is only 86" wide by 96" long....will I be able to get at least my '96 ZR and my '97 Jag on it? He's only asking $200 for it, so it'd be a good buy if I could get 2 sleds on it. Thanks!

The 8' long dimension is ok, the 7'1.6" wide dimension seems a bit on the narrow side. Look at the width specs for your sleds or physically measure them. If the sum of the two is less than the width of the trailer, they will fit.

The jags are narrower, but the ZR sleds can get wider. Even more so if they have the front suspension mod 46" stance. Grab a tape measure and check it out.

Personally, I would try to find an 8.5 X 10 v front drive on & off with the ramp. It makes it so much easier to load a sled into a truck bed using the ramp to transfer from the trailer to the truck. Older v fronts I have seen are around 8-9 bills. It will also get you into a torsion axle which rides alot better than the older 7.5 X 8 steel trailers with leaf springs. Yeah its more $ but you wont have to 2nd guess it. My opinion. Good Luck.
