The weight of an ATV is important because it largely determines the handling characteristics of the vehicle. A heavy UTV has better stability, but it is more difficult to drive. Weight is also important if you are transporting your RZR by car and using a trailer.

What kind of trailer do you need and can the whole be towed by your car?

Weight and dimensions are therefore important, not only for the driving characteristics, but also if you want to transport your Polaris RZR. In addition, there are quite many different versions of the RZR that all have a different weight and different dimensions. We have collected the data for you, so that after reading this article you can make a choice and purchase a trailer. So, read on.

Why Are Weight And Dimensions So Important?

So, the weight of a UTV is important for two reasons, these are:

  1. The weight and dimensions affect the driving characteristics of the ATV. It affects things like stability, handling, and speed.
  2. Not only does weight determine driving characteristics, weight and dimensions are also important when you want to transport your ATV.

In this last case, there are two questions that you need to get answered, namely:

  1. What are the dimensions of the RZR? Now you also know the dimensions of the trailer you need.
  2. What is the weight of the UTV? Now you know if your car can pull the weight of the trailer and RZR.

It is important to know this information before you buy a RZR so that you will not be confronted with an unwanted surprise that your car cannot tow the trailer and the Polaris RZR.

Data gathered from

What About The Extra Weight You Added?

If you look for the weight of the RZR, you will encounter several ways in which the weight is expressed. This can sometimes be confusing.

The most important weight expressions are:

  • Dry weight
    This is the weight of a side-by-side without any fluid or cargo. This weight is useless because a UTV is not drivable in this condition.
  • Wet weight
    This is also called Curb weight or ready-to-ride weight. All standard equipment, fluids and a full fuel tank are included in the weight of the UTV.  This won’t add a lot of weight and probably won’t change your mind about the size of the trailer. 
  • Gross weight
    The gross weight of your side by side is the wet weight plus the maximum weight of the UTV, including passengers. 
  • Payload
    Payload is the amount of cargo a side by side vehicle can carry, including the driver and passengers.

In most cases, a RZR has been modified, and extra parts added to make it faster, safer, or for whatever reason.

Parts are often replaced by new parts, but often parts are also added. All of these changes also add weight to the Polaris RZR. In this case, the manufacturer’s data is no longer correct; This data is for a stock RZR.

You will have to make your own calculation of the weight; the weight of the stock RZR, and all the changes you have made.

And What About The Dimensions?

The length and width of the vehicle are probably different due to aftermarket parts. You should also take this into account when you are looking for a trailer.

You may have mounted a winch or other parts that have changed the width and length. So, the dimensions are no longer standard.

In this case, it is best to measure the width and length. This way you have the exact dimensions of your vehicle.

All The Data Gathered, Now what?

So, now you know the weight and dimensions of your Polaris RZR, but how to proceed? How do you choose from the various trailers? How do you find a trailer manufacturer near you?

First, determine how much you can spend on a trailer, and what specifications you need. When you have done this, you can check the Polaris trailer website to see which trailer fits your wish list. There are many trailer versions available, such as an enclosed UTV trailer, open utility trailer and a tandem axle utility trailer.

And finally, you can choose a dealer/manufacturer nearby who can deliver the trailer.
