Re: Anyone use rv with front deck?

I just bought one just like this..... Used 2009 Starcraft THRILL SEEKER 21SSD Travel Trailer For Sale -

It has a 8 by 8 deck with a capacity of 1500 lbs on the deck. I am going to do a little work on it and get my RZR to fit.

I have a couple of ideas. I would like fit it on front to back. Not side to side. I am thinking about moving the propane tanks and building a little extension where the propane tanks are. I only need another 6 inches. I would probably go 1 foot to be safe. I could move the propane tanks to inside the cargo area. I would like to back the RZR on from the front/side and basically parallel park it right in the middle. Imagine the front wheels were the propane tanks are. with the motor in back of the deck I don't think tongue weight would be a problem. I also have a Honda CRF 450X and a Honda CRF 50 for my son. I could put on on both sides of it and be loaded up.......

The other idea I have is to move the propane tanks, batteries and the jack on the front. Again build a foot onto the deck and put 2 jacks on the front. I would probably put 2 electric jacks up there. Each about 1 foot in from each front corner. That would leave me a 6 foot gap in the middle and I could back the RZR straight on. Of course the downfall here is I would have to unhook from the truck if I wanted to load or unload. Hence the electric jacks.....lol.

I think with the first idea I could load and unload while hooked to the truck.....I dont know....I would like to hear opinions on this. Has anybody seen or tried this???

Re: Anyone use rv with front deck?

Forvm member FBI guy has a new one of that design and he modded the front end for loading the front. He sourced the heavy ga stock on his own and got thin substrate from my office. he made shrouds and guards. His mods looked nice. Super nice guy.
will call him and get him to post and share

I would make sure you brace, brace and brace some more. A RZR with mods, fuel, etc weighs in at 1200-1500lbs. Thats a lot of tongue weight no matter what kind of tow vehicle you have; rear spring helpers or airbags are going to be a must as well. I wouldnt do it, to much weight up there. But just my 2 cents.

Re: Anyone use rv with front deck?

Dual wheel trailer with a weight distribution hitch could help that tongue weight problem out a bit.

the proper tow vehicle atleast a 3/4 ton truck will be the key...WD hitch will help, but you load 1000lbs+ on the tongue or near it, and its gonna affect things

Re: Anyone use rv with front deck?

Yes, but 1500 lbs on the deck wont translate to anywhere near that on the tonque, especially with a WD hitch. I put a Sportsman X2 on my trailer (single 6000# axle) about half way between the axle and the hitch (the RZR is centered over the axle with the engine weight behind the axle) and I have about 500 lbs on the tongue. It squats my F150 very little and pulls nice because the tonque weight is within the 10-15% recommended range of the total trailer weight.

If the deck is rated at 1500# then the RZR should be ok, especially if he moves the propane tanks to the back (moves more of the weight to the rear of the rig.) I would load it forward if he could to move the weight of the RZR engine closer to the trailer axles as well.
