The Can-Am Maverick is undoubtedly the undisputed king of the trail, desert, dunes, and just about everywhere else when it comes to high-performance side-by-side and off-road vehicles. It provides a sky-high excitement level unmatched by anything else and is built to spec with the extraordinary capability to handle the toughest terrain on earth. The thing performs like a beast.
You have many alternatives regarding types of trailers that are the right fit for the Can-Am Maverick. These include a wide variety of single and double axel versions, variations with dump beds and foldable trailers.
Why is It Important to Know the Weight?
Your Can-Am Maverick must be towed in most public areas because UTVs are not permitted on public roads. Also, weight affects a vehicle’s performance and influences its driving characteristics. For instance, it could be difficult to maneuver a big trailer over curvy, narrow routes. Additionally, most trailers need superior handling or acceleration and are typically slow.
It’s important to keep in mind that trailers have a carrying capacity. The load rating of its axle mostly determines the trailer’s weight limit. A trailer axle’s diameter is rated, which helps determine the axle’s total strength. The thickness of an axle determines how much weight it can support. Most axles have a capacity of 1,000 to 10,000 lbs.
Knowing the weight limit of your trailer might help you decide what you can tow and how to balance the load inside effectively. If you try to tow something heavier than the trailer can carry or load the weight extremely unevenly, you risk the axle breaking.
If this occurs during loading, you may encounter delays and annoyance and risk injuring yourself and the people helping you load. If it happens while driving on the road, it can damage your vehicle and other cars. Therefore, it’s imperative that you know and stays within the weight limit of your trailer.
Why is Width, Length, and Height also Important?
The trailer’s dimensions also as impact the driving characteristics. A tall trailer, for instance, might not fit under bridges or other structures, and a long trailer might be difficult to maneuver on the road with sharp corners. The manufacturer provides the ex-works standard dimensions. The dimensions of each model can vary, and sometimes the differences are substantial.
Also, customization of your maverick can affect its width, length, and height. For example, bigger tires or a lift kit can significantly alter the dimensions of the UTV. Thus, you will need to reassess the Can-Am Maverick’s dimensions after carrying out modifications. It would be better to measure the UTV if you want a trailer.

What When You Added Extra Weight?
You may have installed aftermarket parts to customize your Can-Am Maverick, adding parts like bigger rims and tires, a light bar, or a winch. These additions will also affect the weight of the UTV. So, you will need to estimate the weight because the manufacturer’s specifications are no longer applicable. Thus, you also need to consider the modifications and the manufacturer’s information.
This is UTV’s weight without fluids like oil or fuel. The UTV is inoperable in this condition.
It is curb weight, often known as ready-to-ride weight. The weight includes the UTV’s standard equipment, a full gasoline tank, and fluids. It will only add a little to the trailer’s weight and probably won’t make you reconsider its specifications.
The gross weight is the UTV’s maximum or allowable weight and includes the wet weight plus passengers and baggage.
The UTV’s payload is the maximum weight it can carry, including the passengers and luggage. When choosing a trailer, many people need clarification on the payload and towing capacity. The payload capacity of a vehicle or trailer refers to the weight it can transport without jeopardizing the suspension, tires, or other components.
Payload capacity depends on many factors, including the strength of the structure, the suspension, the size of the tires, and braking efficiency. There are a lot of negative consequences for exceeding the trailer’s payload capacity. For starters, you must always maintain control of your trailer. Overloading makes it challenging to maneuver the trailer, endangering yourself and other road users.
Additionally, an overloaded trailer is more likely to experience problems like broken axles or flat tires. Thus, to keep your trailer and vehicle safe on the road, always keep the payload below the maximum limit. It would be ideal if you only use some of the available capacity.
Have The Dimensions Changed?
Your Can-Am Maverick’s dimensions may change if you modify it with aftermarket components. For example, installing bigger tires can widen your UTV. So, you must re-examine the Can-Am Maverick’s measurements if you have modified or added components, such as larger wheels, installed a light bar or winch. The manufacturer’s specifications may no longer be applicable since the afterparts you installed to change the UTV’s dimensions.
Get the Trailer
You now have a better knowledge of the weight and dimensions of your Can-Am Maverick. What should you do next, and how do you choose between the several trailers? How can you find a local trailer manufacturer?
Begin by deciding what characteristics your Can-Am Maverick trailer needs to have and how much you can afford to spend on it.
