Transporting side by side from campsite to trails

Would it be safe to tow our 2014 X to trailhead with a tow bar and wheels on the ground from campground when we can't park the toy hauler at trailhead? Trying to come up with options for a solution to this problem

I don't have one but in the Market. I was on the RZR forum and the topic came up and it was not recommended.

Will it fit in the back of your truck with ramps?

Would it be possible to put you side by side on a low trailer like what you see at Harbor Freight and then winch it into the Toy Hauler. When you get where your going you would have a trailer to tow it anywhere?

That is nice looks tall getting it on a trailer and then in the toy hauler might be a problem. Is that all wheel drive all the time or can you go from 2x to 4x?

I have a Polaris Ranger 800 I use in my farming operation. I use a quick attach towbar to pull it between farms and it works great, just have to remember to put it in neutral.

Did you have to fab up mounts to fit your Ranger or did you find something made to fit?

I think I used the mounts that came with the tow bar, bolted to the bumper, but you could make some for your application fairly easily. I leave the mounts in place and if I want to remove the towbar I just pull a pin on each mount. I use a ratchet strap to secure the towbar vertically for using the side by side with the towbar attached. I'll try to get a picture later and post it for you.
