What is the best way to tie down my 1000-5 on the trailer. Also have a concern, should the SXS be in Park when tied down.?? Thinking about a shock load on Parking mechanism in trans. Almost wish there was an emergency brake lever ...Yes, I know there are those who will forget the brake is on...Can't fix stupid..

Best way is to tie down something below the suspension so the load is less dynamic.

I prefer tire bonnets, but straps over the tires are just as effective.

I added 3/4" shackle mounts front and rear.

Will use CargoBuckles that are recessed under the floor. You pull it out, hook up, let go it retracts like a seat belt, hit the lock button and about two pumps and it's tight. One handed operation. Works with E Track.


I also added 6 if these

It actually takes a 4-1/2" hole saw.

e-track and straps over the tires

Best way.

www.uscargocontrol.com has the best price on e-track and e-track tiedowns I have found. I have found nowhere that can beat their e-track price.

Their Tiedowns are REALLY nice. I ordered a few to see the quality then I gave away all my old tie downs and bought a compliment of 1" and 2" ratchet straps with snap hooks and the gray e-track tiedowns then cut them to fit over my tires since the Erikson tiedowns won't fit anymore.

Agreed with strapping down on the tires. Been using these for a couple of years now. Broke a few straps trying to tie to the frame before we got these. Another benefit is it locates the machine on the trailer in the same spot every time.

Another option is the Louisiana Trailer Dog.
If you have a trailer ball on the sxs, you can pull on the trailer, slide the LA dog into the rail and slide forward. Lower onto the trailer ball and lock it up.

I just bought a set of Macs utv tie downs , they are awesome and I think they will last a very long time. Also, I installed the hillbilly brake and towed for 350 miles and my p1000-3 didn’t move at all the entire trip. Great setup.

I tie mine by way of straps through the wheels in a crisscross method. Also ALWAYS put mine in Neutral after securing them. Dont like the idea of the trans parking pawl taking the undo punishment.
I also have the Hillbilly brake on both my machines.

The E track will not work for me, I use my trailer to haul my tractor and other types of equipment.

You guys are making this harder than it has to be. Just run a strap through the floor area, hooking low on the trailer. Tighten strap, and she's not going to move. I use the leftover strap to tie front a arm to front pole of trailer. By holding it this way you have no jumping around, suspension is down and unit can't walk because it is tied to front of trailer. Loaded many times with 10,000 pound tie down and no issues, even on 1,200 mile trips.

I use a tie-down strap on the Honda's hitch ball attached to the rear of the trailer, and then use my winch up front. It works awesome!

Be careful using the winch line as a tire down. Warn states the dynamic loading can lead to damage or ruin the gears.

I was going to state that, but didn't want to come across as a know it all! HA! Your completely right! And you don't want one strap in the rear, I was involved in a head on crash early Jan 17, had four straps, two of them snapped, one in the rear and the other in the front, if my trailer didn't have a top rail, our S x S would have ended up in the bed of my truck. I had a 50% failure on my tie downs. You only have 50% to start with?

BINGO and you only have 2 strap out of 4 keeping it out of the cab of your truck.
The over tire straps, all 4 are keeping it in place, it allows the suspension of the SxS to absorb some of the energy of bad roads and it makes the ride of the tow vehicle and the trailer better.

Each of my 4 tiedowns is working load rated at the weight of the machine so I am at 4x the working load and 12x the break strength of the tie downs and tie down points, my etrack is bolted through wood and where there is a cross member bolted through them. It’s working load is right at the weight of the SxS at each tie down point.

Honestly I’m more worried the wood itself and the cross members may fail before the straps and tie down points do.

IF I have a wreck I don’t want the Pioneer as a 1800lb projectile through the back window to be a very high possibility.

In traffic or on the interstate I AVOID the $80k truck pulling the $40k SxS on a $500 trailer with $10 in harbor freight tiedowns.

Securing a load safely in case of a wreck is the priority not keeping it from rolling off the trailer.

I have been thinking about e-tracks, the two things I keep wondering about are should I recess them and should they be mounted to the crossmembers and not just the boards? I also second the comment on straps from US Cargo Control. I ordered 4 from them and they are very nice. Plus I got to get them in blue instead of yellow!

Might checkout the versa track. I like it better than the E-track
