Good thread, good replies.
That pic with the two quads in the deep snow was a long day. That pic was taken at about hour 5 of our 6-8 mile ride into camp, that says a little about how the travel was fairing
That little trailer had a flat tire about 5 miles into it, we did the normal tire change in 12" of snow (three guys rolled it onto it's side...full). The tire change tech (for lack of a better term) working in a frenzy, put the spare on backwards & upon torquing the lug nuts, sheared the valve stem off.
So, he made it another mile before the tire was gone & the rim was ruined. We left the trailer on the trail side, made it the rest of the way to camp & a buddy & I returned to retreive the wagon. He ran his winch line over his grill guard & back down to the spindle area of the axle & picked up that side of the wagon. We essentially went into camp like a rail road train, which actually worked better that I ever could have guessed. When I started to get stuck plowing snow, he was able to push from the rear. When he spun out in the ruts, I had enough momentum to pull him out.
We built those trailers for every member in our group except one. They are a godsend (& usually overloaded
Here's a tailgate shot of one of our more fancy rigs. Tailgate, side boards & floor are all tongue & groove
, Hinged tailgates, enclosed box in front to hold 4-1.5 gallon fuel can.
