What kind of trailer are people using to haul their cub. I’m wanting to buy a trailer but not sure what to look for I was hoping you all could give me ideas.

Tim, I use an old snowmobile trailer. I like it 'cause it "breaks" and the trailer deck tilts while the tongue stays connected. HTH..

If hauling one cub I use a 10 ft. tilt trailer. IF hauling 2 or more I use a 16 ft. trailer with ramps. I will not use a rear fold up gate on a trailer. It catches wind and will cost you around 4 mpg.

Get a folding tailgate model to split the difference between MPG and ease of use.....

I don't have a garage......any more, so we opted for an enclosed 20' Atlas trailer with a spring assisted rear door. A little over kill for strictly Cub duty but it gives them a home out of the weather. Might just also have enough room for a Farmall H, with the muffler and steering wheel removed of course.

Well, I got tired of meeting my Deep Ocean Blue Z71 Silverado's twins every time I drove someplace. The floor mats were dirty and it needed tires within the next 10,000 miles. Big Red...

Gerry,

They wouldn't give you a red hat and shirt to match your truck?
You did better than me. I couldn't even get a hat.

Nice truck. Now you will be seeing red twins when you go out.

No red shirts, but that Blue one is one of them fuzzy pullovers the sales guys all wear.. Has the dealership name on it, I'm working on ideas here...
I like the red, may be a little redder than IH red..

Here's my current setup. It's not big but works great for me so far. My 107 has a 1-7/8" ball hitch, so once unloaded it could pull the trailer around itself.

Loaded up the day I brought my Cub home. The trailer tilts at the axel so I was able to drive right on. Note the ATV tires hang over the edge just a little bit. Glad I asked overall width ahead of time, so I could put some blocks inside the trailer sides for the wheels to drive/sit on (see next picture).

Installed blocks for the rear wheels to sit on.

The "tow rig". 2014 Wrangler JK Sport, 5 speed manual. This thing can't haul a ton, but it's a blast to drive. Same trailer in this picture, I have since removed the sides though for the Cub pickup. The sides are getting pretty old and I am going to spend the winter noodling over what to do with it. I like the low/no sides for hauling the Cub, but the sides are nice for most other cargo.

My hauler heads to the body shop today after suffering a Bambi attack the other evening,'
Damn...I'll bet he sure had one hell of a headache!!
Hit the fuel filler door dead center it looks like and popped the paint at the body line above the pin stripe even
