Hi all. I’m looking to haul the KRX with my new Bronco when it shows up. I was going to order a single axle aluminum to keep the weight down and wanted to know the smallest size I can go with. Do I need to go with a 6x12 for this to fit? I was going to order my trailer with sides so I can use it for other stuff as well.

You can for sure fit on a 6x12. Just be cognizant of the trailer’s GVWR. The stock machine with zero accessories weighs 1896 LBS. Subtract the weight of the trailer from the GVWR and that’s what you can haul. On some lighter single axle trailers you can run close to max weight pretty quick when you add accessories.

Edit: I just noticed the “Canadian” in your name. So 860 KG then.

You will just fit on a 6 x 12 with a tiny bit of room to spare.My krx was not at proper ride height from the dealer resulting in it being wider and rubbing both front tires getting it on the trailer.

That confuses me. How was it 4” wider than stock?

I loaded up and pulled a KRX on an Echo 11' x 72" wide about 5-600 miles last month. It's an all steel model (including the deck) that is lighter than or equal to most of the aluminum models of comparable size I looked at and a lot less$$$. IIRC it has a capacity of around 2400 plus pounds. It towed flawlessly, even in some vicious cross winds on I70 in CO.

At 68" wide, i would go with at least a 6 1/2' x 12'. my trailer was 6' x 10' and i added 11" to the length and can barely fit it on,

I'd go tandem with the smaller tow rig. Power is not going to an issue, but braking and stability might.

This is a 77"x12'.

At a minimum I would go 6-1/2' wide, and I would also go 14' long. I always like to buy a little more than the minimum size for pretty much everything. The tandem axle is a much better and more stable to pull option.

Thanks guys! I guess my issue is the shitty tow rating of 3500lbs, I’m use to a pickup. I have a tandem 7x14 right now but it weighs 2500lb on it’s own.

Is it an equipment trailer? 2500 is really heavy for a 7x14. The 6.5x12 above is 990 lbs, the 20ft utility is around 1800 and my 14k 102x24 deckover equipment trailer was 3800.

Ya it’s a heavy duty landscape trailer. The back gate must be 200lbs on its own.

That tandem 7x14 you have is what I would use. And tow with the aviator. The bronco you have coming is the sport model I’m assuming? Those look real small to me. I use a Ford Explorer, and that’s as small as I’d go towing a krx and a 14’ trailer. That bronco is barely fit to tow a motorcycle on a small trailer, imo. After you add accessories and a few gas cans and tools, you’re at 2500 nearly. At least I am. Then the trailer weight with a spare tire and jack etc.

I agree with your comments. I will be towing with the Aviator, with the new RWD platform and brake controller installed I should be good.

The 3500lb limit is for the full size bronco. I would think the Bronco sport tows even less with its 4cyl engine. Maybe I should of kept my 2015 F150 lol. Too late now!
