Title: Anyone have a rhino?

we just bought an 06 660. First trip out will be thanksgiving.
We have a huge problem though, it does not fit in the door of our trailer! The cage is 5 inches too tall.
Can't afford new trailer yet - that is next on the list....
We have talked about airing down the tires and collasping the suspension, but I don't think it will give us enough room OR
taking off the cage - but the cage has a speaker bar across the top and wiring for lights on it
We have been told to try to shorten the ramp to get a steeper incline to get in

How hard it is to remove the cage?
Talk to a weld shop. Making quick connectors for the cage shouldn't be too difficult. They do it routinely on tractor roll bars.

Have you thought about getting a connector for the wiring and just unbolt the cage and disconnect the wiring. Much cheaper than a new trailer.

that's what we will be doing for now (I think)
We have been wanting a new trailer any way...

I have a new '10 model year Rhino that I just traded my '06 model for. I was not planning on upgrading yet but my stator went out when I was using it for a security gig and in the heat of the moment I traded it off on the new one. The new 700 Rhino is fuel injected and I really like that upgrade! My old one cranked for several minutes before it would get enough fuel to fire if it sat too long.
I have no issues with either of my enclosed trailers as they are large enough and tall enough for my powered parachute so the Rhino slips right in without doing any mods.
Enjoy the Rhino. My wife wishes that I didn't upgrade and would love it if I would sell mine as it is only used for that security gig four days a year and in the winter for plowing my lot and a little bit of elk hunting. I think I will miss the camo version that I traded for this rasberry red fancy looking thing....but it is purdy! :D
After looking at Rubi's country and how much he rides....I am jealous! Also the Rhino will not make the 50" width of some of the trails he rides (I don't think anyway).
Have fun with yours!!

There are 1000s of miles of trails that you can drive your Rhino on, they're not all 50" trails, in fact the 50" tails are by far the minority.
The only sidexside that fits the 50" trails is the Polaris RZR and not the larger RZR S.
I here nothing but good about the Rhino, enjoy it.
