Hello all.

Hey there just bought my first side by side. A 2011 Prowler XTX700 brand new holdover from a Bass Pro Shop. So far I like it a lot, especially the power steering. I have a question some of you might know. I'm looking to put on a soft top and a flip windshield. Are these accessories trailerable and will they hold up? I had a Sportsman lock and ride windshield one time that shredded while towing it down the highway. I would hate to have this happen again. I can't find any info on ACs website or anywhere on this. Thanks in advance, and I look forward to many years of fun with this ride, Brian

mine is trailered a lot of miles .. I have a 2 piece windshield and soft rear window/back piece with 2 piece hard top .. no issues here. but there are different styles of them also.

welcome to the house … where is home and ride area if different .. fill in your profile and signature lines so we don't ask a bunch of duplicate questions.

in fall it was a 16 hr. haul south .. on a mesh floored trailer so it got wind from every direction

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

sounds like you need to find on crags list a used commercial sewing machine … repair and make the things you want .. then you could reinforce things too and not to forget make stuff for your buddies on PT forum
