    Default Ryker on a trailer?

    Has anyone hauled the Ryker on a utility trailer? Was there any problem making the break over at the top of the ramp? I noticed that Tractor Supply has a 6 x 8 utility trailer with a 4' ramp that looks like it might work.

    If this is the one with the vertical attached ramp …. my experience was not too good …. BOTH of the securing devices fell apart on the same trip …. I fixed it with a solid 8 or 10 inch bolt using a lock-nut ….. The replacement parts from tractor supple was $30.00 EACH .….. good luck …. Mike

    When I bought my Ryker I showed up with 5x8 trailer, Ryker didn't fit. If I had 6x8 trailer it would of worked out.

    I used this trailer I built to haul my wife's Spyder, and my Ryker to the Keys.

    I've hauled ours on our 7x14 open trailer. The ramp is 5ft long I think. I load and unload with the trailer hooked to the truck, and the tongue jack cranked way up to reduce the angle of the ramp. I had no issues at all. Anything you can do to reduce that angle is key. Use the tongue jack, park the trailer wheels in a low spot, park up against an embankment, boards under the back end of the ramp....etc....
