Explorer ATV Utility Trailer

The Explorer is an all-purpose ATV utility trailer built to handle punishing terrain but is universal enough for those backyard jobs. The tilt frame is made of heavy duty 3.2 cm (1.25 in.) powder-coated steel to resist scratching and corrosion.

Good little unit

Pros: will last for years
Cons: perhaps not the cheapest thing out there.
" The plastic box was a primary reason for purchase, as well, it has a real hitch and real HD wheel bearings. Is used to haul salt/sand mix to treat the driveways in winter. "

Good value

Pros: quiet durable
Cons: latch for dumping trailer can release on its own
" Had mine for 5 years now, taken out many moose. Easily handles half a moose in the trailer. Tried a full moose, popped the seal on the tire pushing against a tree stump. Very durable, the only thing is the latch to allow the trailer to dump is a little light duty. While hauling heavy loads will release on its own when under lots of pressure. Had to tie down the box to prevent from lifting up. Would recommend though, nice a quiet compared to metal trailers. "

Great trailer

Pros: very rugged, lightweight, heavy load capacity, price
Cons: back could use more support, dump hitch is loose/noisy
" First off, buy it in the store if you can, it's a lot less. Been using it for 4 years now on my 160 acres. Loaded it heaping with dirt, rocks, green firewood, etc. Use it about once a week spring to fall. Criticisms are valid. Back does bow with too much weight on it or with longer logs/lumber, trailer hitch is noisy, ride is rough on rough terrain as there are no springs. Tires are excellent though. Haven't had to fill them yet. But it's very rugged otherwise, and at the in store price, it's a steal. "

atv trailor

Pros: very easy to move around
Cons: needs a little more support in the back end
" I bought one of these trailors 2 years ago for arond home and my camp it works great. the only problem i had was the back started to colapse when i was hauling hard wood, but that was my fault as it was green hard wood and i probably had to much in it.The only impovement i could see making is to make some type of a haevier support on the back end. This is a wonderfull little trailor just needs a little more support. Also mine stays outside all the time and have no issues with rust,tires or bearings would buy another one in hart beat. "

Average all around purpose

Pros: light priceplastic box
Cons: overall quality
" Bought last fall for hunting and housekeeping.
Easy to assembly,
But tires are not as showed in picture. there cheaper, and thread very different.
One bearing race as rust pitting already.
Hub/shaft machined parts, were partly covered with lots of paint.
Based on the picture i was expecting more ground clearance, but trailer is rather low.
The tilting device is very slack, ratling annoying when riding, Had to bolt-it permanently, now useless ( this option )
Paint quality is very poor after only few ride, the frame start to rust badly, need to sandblast, primed and repaint with goodquality.
BUT: he follow me everywhere i go, i like his weight ( light ) The plastic box is great and well done.
