I just purchased a new Yamaha Viking EPS Camo this past week. I will take possession on Sept 5th as it is 4 hrs away. Accessories purchased: Yamaha Fold Down Windshield, Rear Window, Bed Mat, Overfenders, Warn 3500 lb winch and snow plow system. Anything else I should be considering?

Also, what size of trailer do you all find is best? I currently have a 6x12 utility trailer reserved, but not completely sold on that yet.

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated!

Welcome to the forum! Make sure your Viking has the sound deadening kit. It's a wall behind the seats that separates the cab and bed. It's about $75 and worth every penny! If your Viking is a '15, it probably does, but it doesn't hurt to double check. I can't help you with trailers, to me bigger is better because you always end up hauling more than you anticipated. I use an 18' car hauler for mine.

Cheers!

Welcome aboard, I've heard the Camo ones are easily lost in the woods due to the Camo. LOL!

I use a 6x12 trailer and it fits the SxS plus my grill, but nothing else. Dont forget about a sound system, i havent bought anything crazy yet but I have a Bluetooth speaker that works pretty good (when idling, these machines are loud as previously mentioned). Definately invest in a sound dampening kit, depending om your usage a waterproof storage device of some sort would be good. I have the yamaha center console, its okay but not as good as I tjough it would be. Good luck and have fun with your new toy.

Thanks for the tips. I'm looking into the sound dampening kit. It sounds like that's probably a good idea. I was just going to wait and see but it sounds like something I'm going to want. Thanks again!

I along with those who know me, consider myself somewhat of a trailer expert. I have been married 13 years and I am approaching 18 trailers, currently owning 2 now, just because I sold one last week! I like to CL the run down ones, but repairable, and use them and eventually flip them when I want another project or my needs change.

I have a 6x14 and I hope that works for toting my viking around with the snow blade from lot to lot. I hope I don't regret giving up my 16ft last year.

By the way, no rail 14ft will haul a viking on the back and an atv across the front.
