Caliber installed products allow for full 4 seasons trailer use.
Anyone with basic skills & hand tools can very easily install these products .Cons:
Recently we received this trailer from R&R Trailers to review. The purpose of this trailer was to transport our ATVs, Side by Sides & MC's to the different riding locations. Well as you can see by the before pictures that this trailer was not suited for carrying my sleds.
The rear ramp was the biggest draw back. When I tried to load the sled, the skegs got hung up in the aluminum ramp rungs. This also made a mess of the rungs.
The deck wasn't too bad, but I knew that within a short time the skegs would be tearing that up too.
One issue we had with the stock trailer was the lack of frontal shielding while traveling in the rain or on muddy back roads. When we arrived on location our ATVs would be covered in mud and road grime.
So when caliber came on board and asked me what key areas I wanted to upgrade, we came up with 3 areas of concern. The lack of frontal coverage, the deck, and the rear ramp. Luckily, Caliber has those areas covered.
We installed the Poly-Shield Series III, which will provide the machines much needed frontal spray shielding from the elements. This is going to be a benefit for all season use, not only in the winter but the rest of the year as well.
For the deck we installed the LowPro Wide Glides to take care of the skegs tearing up the deck. Also for traction on the deck we installed the grip glides with the flat base staggered for effect in the center of the trailer.
The Grip Glides designed for the rear ramps of trailers went on excellent. They fit perfect on my rear ramp rungs. It was just a matter of drilling some pilot holes and bolting them to the rungs. I cheated and used self tapping metal screws.
You would think that I can only use my trailer for snow now, but everything we installed is low profile and does not interfere with loading ATVs, or anything else we want to load up. I have to thank Caliber for taking this R&R Trailer to a higher level. We can now with confidence use this trailer all year round. I know when we get on location now our equipment will be in far better shape then it was before. I like the way the Poly-Shield deflects the elements.
The bottom line is if you already have a trailer and you would like to get multi season use out of it, Caliber can get you ready for hauling your sleds and atvs with out fear of the elements, or tearing up your trailer deck. This is probably one of my better projects that I have done lately. I am really happy that I will be getting much more use out of this R&R Trailer.
