We typically trailer 3-4 hours to ride. We also do the AirBnB thing and make a long weekend out of it with a few other SXS's. There is no real place to ride around us except for private land, so we travel. Even when we rode 4 wheelers we traveled to get anywhere worth riding. I agree that the trailer is just kind of part of the off road experience. Also if your off road vehicle brakes down, a trailer is a good thing to have to get it home.
