I have an 8.5 wide and have plenty of space to get out and get around both sides to strap it down.

Only downside to a wider trailer is visibility if you don't already have wider tow mirrors.

From experience, get the trailer larger than what you think you need or most likely you will be buying another. Length is the first thing. Is 14' long enough? The 4 seat is over 12' with no bumpers. Figure the equipped machine + additional space for ease of tie down and some room for storage. 14' sounds pretty tight if you have bumpers. If you were to upgrade to a 4 seat Pro at some point, it will be an even longer machine. Same with a Can Am. And both are not stepped in on the sides as much as the XP1000 so getting in and out in a 7' trailer will be a lot harder. A few more $$ now for something a little bit larger is a heck of a lot cheaper than having to upgrade in a few years and spend thousands.

I had a 18' X 7' snowmobile trailer (so 23' with the V) and hauled a XP1000 and full sized utility quad. No issues with the width. It was tight but there is still about 8" on a side between the wall and tire. That said, I replaced it with a 102" wide car hauler so we could haul 2 RZRs. It is a lot nicer for moving around in the trailer but not truly necessary. Just depends on your situation, what you are comfortable towing.

Good luck!

Seven feet is not enough. The door width is less. I am 66”-67” wide and barely fit between the cables for the door. The next one I get will be 8’ wide. I have a 7x19 v nose and a 17 xpt. It takes up a fair amount of space in there. We convert it to sleep in after the machine is out of it, so all of the camping stuff rides in there too.

They also make tow mirrors that snap right on to your existing mirrors for most trucks. I bought a set for a ram 1500 for fairly cheap and they work great.

Ok so I have decided to go with a 8.5x14 now I just need to find a used one around my location
i bought a 7X16 for my 4 seat turbo and have plenty of room to get out and walk out of trailer. I kinda hug the passenger side of trailer when im pulling in. If your 500lbs i can see you having a issue.

its loaded up now and i can take a few pictures for you if that would help you decide.

You must be one thin dude. Cannot count the times have watched people loading and unloading from a 7'. Sure something I do not want to struggle with when the 8.5 makes life so much easier.

I went with a 8 1/2X16 V nose 7' tall opening. The extra 3 feet in the V allows me to take my motorcycle along.
The extra width to me is a must to allow space to get around the RXR XP1000.
I live in CO and do not have inside storage so the trailer protects the RZR.
I use the mirror extensions that attach to my Yukon mirrors to see around the trailer.
Pleased with the set up.

I had a Diamond Cargo 8.5 X 14 V-nose. Ordered it with an extra foot of height. Worked great for a 2-seat 1k. Little heavy for the size trailer but overall a great enclosed trailer.
