    Delightful trailer transformation

    Over that past few weekends my friend and I have been working on my 18’ trailer so we can get two SXSs on it. We want to take one trailer down to Baja. We took my 50” high ramp gate and cut it in half so it could lay flat and give us the extra trailer length needed. My friend welded some hitch receivers on the side of the trailer and we used some 2x2s to make a place for the gate to rest on. We then drilled holes so we could run a bolt through the gate and 2x2 and bolt it down. No worrying about it moving.

    Both SXSs fit no problem. Just had to mess with placement of the cars to get enough tongue weight. Tows nice and straight and no swaying.

    It is a simple set up and when I don’t need the extra space I still have a trailer gate. Just unbolt the gate, slide the 2x2s into the hitch receiver and lift up the gate. For the lights we used the magnetic ones that I can move easily depending on whether the gate is up or down.

    I am delighted with the outcome. It will make it delightful on those trips when we want to take one trailer.
