What Is an ATV Carrier?
An ATV carrier is a large device meant to transport all-terrain vehicles. There are several different types available--including those that are pulled behind another vehicle and those meant for a specific type of vehicle, such as a Hummer.

Pickup Truck Carrier

Some ATV carriers are known as pickup truck carriers or truck racks because the carrier fits directly onto the back of a truck. It's possible to carry two different ATV vehicles in the bed of a truck with this tool.


ATV Trailers

For those with a truck or SUV who want to tow an ATV, an ATV trailer or hauler can be used. This small trailer has slots for the tires of the ATV and attaches to the back of a vehicle.

Military Carriers

Military carriers were made for larger vehicles, such as a full-size Hummer. It works the same way as a hauler but attaches to the bumper of the vehicle and is slightly larger.

Enclosed Haulers

Enclosed haulers or carriers transport ATVs but also work for storage because they contain a side and a roof. They can be used to store ATVs when not carrying them to another location.

Equipment Racks

An equipment rack is an essential component for those with a tractor or another piece of farm equipment. This fits directly onto the back but is large enough to carry an ATV.
