      wouldnt waste my money, using a trailer is a billion times better and only a little more money. you dont have to lift the ramps all the time, climb the bed to load it and tie it down, and all you have to do is have the ramps kick out on you once and you will never want that to happen again.i had this harbor freight one for four or five years all that ever happened to it is the hitch was a little crappy i got a new reese one from walmart or something for like 20 bucks. i traded it to a guy for like 400 dollar used table and saw press, and then built my own because i had two then. i built my own from an old popup maybe had a hundred bucks into that, and it was way easier, i could load it without ramps, tie it down super easy, everything on a trailer is in the open

      I'm still wondering why on Earth anyone would spend $8000+ on an ATV and not want to buy a $650 trailer for it? I paid $599 at Lowe's for a 5x8 trailer and then $50 for a 4x8 sheet of plywood to bolt to it to make a solid deck.

      Or this one and about $100 worth of wood: https://www.harborfreight.com/1195-lbs-capacity-48-in-x-96-in-heavy-duty-folding-trailer-62648.html
      Well like I said I have a trailer that I can use, but if I'm going by myself I actually prefer just transporting in the back of my truck. Don't have to deal with attaching the trailer, less things to go wrong on the trip, easier maneuvering and parking, more fuel efficient. I'm pretty sure that there are lots of people that feel the same way about it, it's just a personnel preference.

      I have a trailer and prefer to use it - just easier to load/unload.

      But many times my MAX 570 XT is loaded in the back of my 5.5' boxed F150 (and it fit's fine despite being longer then the average model) because I'm also pulling my boat. So there is times when it simply has to go in the back or it can't come along...
