Default The Razer bug has bit!

The dealer enticed be to come down and look at his end of the year inventory, so I did yesterday. I'm thinking the RZR XP900 would be pretty cool. The new 2013 RZR 570 EPS in Gloss Black was pretty sweet too. Now the '13 570 would actually be $2000 less than a '12 XP900. I know a couple of you have these. Hauling inside a pickup would probably be the ticket it sounds behind a Newell. What about an open flatbed trailer hauled sideways with a smaller car too?

If you own one, what size RZR do you prefer and why? Do you think the 570 would have enough power? hmmm??????

A few years ago I purchased one of the original Polaris RZR. Traveling, so I cannot give your the model number. I think the engine is not as strong as their newer models, but I have used it several time at the Imperial Sand Dumes boarding Arizona and California. It can climb the highest dunes with two persons with no shortage of power. Hope this helps.

Thanks Chester for your thoughts. I used to have the tendency go after whatever was the bigger engine. And after being busted up a few times and getting a tad older I need to slow it down a some. And I prefer anything that has roll over protection.

I'm looking at them too. Ron Skeen came thru last week and had his in his pickup. The 800 fits but the 900 or S is too wide. Summersgal also carries their RZR in their towed. They all just returned from CO in their Newells w/RZR's.
Thanks,

How about hauling on a trailer like one of these. I don't think it would be too long and if the heights were OK it could be a possibility.

Oh that's SWEET! I'd love to have a set up like that! I'm considering a RZR too.

The best way to go is carry your 800 RZR (50 Inch) in your pick-up. I am working on a set up to carry the RZR on the back of the M/C and pull the Pick-up with a 1800 Goldwing and K1200 S BMW in the towed 1500 4x4 Dodge truck. I carry a can am outlander 1000 on the back of the coach now with no trouble, but the RZR is a 8 inches wided and 18 inches longer. I will modify the carry ramp which I have now to accommodate the RZR. This is my first year with the RZR after riding dirt bike and ATV for the last 40+ years and I will probably never go back to them. If I can be of help let me know.

Ron, can you post a pic of the set up your talking about. I have been looking the 1500 Ram's and currently have my Ram 3500 dually for sale since I don't have a good enough use for it any longer. Or you can email the pics and I'll upload them for you. I like those k1200's too, there cool. I'm weighing options out on different scenarios and when your trying to accomplish this type of knitty gritty it can get interesting.

Ron, does your 1500 4x4 drive ok with the weight of the RZR in the back?
Thinking of doing the same and not sure if a 1500, or 1500HD or 2500 would be best.
Thanks.

I have lower my 1500 2" and installed ride rite air bags with pump. This was all bought at Summit Racing. I can email picture but don't know how to post. My wife did not like the ride height of the 4x4 stock suspension. We are country but don't like trucks you have to climb up to get in. I have a 99 4x4 Dakota I have set up the same way that haul two bike or ATV.
