Good point, 1600lbs is at the upper end of the recommended bed load...though our new Grizzly 700 fits with the tailgate closed & doesn't affect ride too much. Of course, the Grizz is less than 800lbs, with mods. Dry storage for a trailer in my area (trailer would be too wide to fit through one of my 8' garage doors) would run ~$1800-$2K per year, and having to drive over and pull it out takes time-every time. Outdoor storage is cheaper, but theft is a possibility, even with wheel & coupler locks...on nice all aluminum trailer. I can't park one outside my house due to HOA regs, and don't have the space at my business. We have very limited riding access within 2 hours of home, so this machine may not see more than 5-6 trips per year...buying/storing/paying annual taxes/tolls on a trailer, on top of setting up a $20K machine, gets cost prohibitive quickly. We hope to be able to move to a larger property with better storage options at some point, but for the near future, we have to work with current circumstances...That much weight up that high on a 1/2 ton will make for a miserable ride, IMHO.
I had considered that, but didn't think I had enough space on either side of my house, with a\c units behind the fence on one side, and a gas meter outside the fence on the other. It's also up hill from the curb to my house...would you happen to know the bed and overall widths of your trailer? I'm going to measure the gas meter side and see if it might be possible to have the gate widened and squeeze a trailer in there. I suppose I could use the new quad to pull it if need be...probably damage the yard less than a TundraI put this little 6’x10’ Alumaweld trailer in my back yard. Trailer only weighs about 450 lbs and is very easy to move around by hand. If you’ve got a gate, your HOA would never know you had it. Fits my X perfectly, even though for best tongue weight and towing you should really back the Talon on to the trailer.
That's not bad. I searched for rentals in my area, and didn't come up with anything I'd use for out of state trips-beat up junk trailers, at high prices. I checked Tractor Supply after your post, and there is one 20 minutes from me. They rent one trailor, a 5x8, and it's currently "broken".dont know about your area but for now i rent a 6x10 aluminum trailer whenever we haul. only 25 a day from tractor supply. just did 3 days in WV for $75.
hi will it fit loaded into a car garage? My HOA does not allow me to part in front of my house...I put this little 6’x10’ Alumaweld trailer in my back yard.

Probably not. Standard overhead garage doors are less than 8' tall. You can find the dimensions of the Talon on the Honda site. Add the vehicle height to your trailer deck height, then measure your garage door. I've decided a trailer is the way to go...buying a 14' or 16' tandem axle, to haul a SxS + quad.Hello, I have 6x10 alumna trailer and am about to purchase Talon X. Do you guys know if it will fit loaded on trailer into a regular car garage? Cannot park in front of my house, due to HOA, thinking to park it in garage, just not sure if I will fit through the garage door.....thanks for any hints
Old farm or landscaping flat bed most were about 11ft long, im putting a 11 ft aluminum bed on my old duarmax so i can haul talon on truck and pull my camerasI'm really wanting a Talon, but would like to find alternative to buying/storing a trailer. I've seen the Diamondback HD bed cover hauling option, but the Talon is over their size limit. Suggestions?
