Are new Spyder RT’s too wide?

Recommended Posts

Still just dreaming, planning for future HDT adventures...  I love the idea of carrying a CanAm Spyder RT on the back.  The new ones, loaded up for two, are 111” tip to tail.  That’s too wide for the road, yes?  Any way to solve for this, other than have two shorter Spyders and a lift?

Check out wattsonwheels.info  They have a Volvo with a stacker behind the cab to carry two Spyders.,  I've seen the truck, but they didn't have the Spyders with them so I can't advise which model they're loading.  I do know my wife's F3-S is still too long.  It has no luggage attached.

The Spyder is overwidth when loaded crosswise, but not by as much as a smart. We built the Watts stacker, so if you have questions let me know. They carry two F3's.

Jack, you are correct, in that the F3-S is only 104", and according to the Can-Am web site, the F3-T is 102.2.  I believe the model with the top trunk is a bit longer.

I didn't look up specs on the RT, just 2018 F3-S and T.  The RT is the one with LOTS of luggage.  Yes, you'd have to swing the rear end over a lot.  And it's footprint is a triangle, so it would be harder than it first appears.  I'll also say, the back of the S is heavy, but at least has handles.  Not so with the T or RT, which are heavier to boot.

Duh.  I was thinking loading two, not one.  Yes, if you're gonna drive up a ramp anyway, just extend it to the right spot.  The rear trunk on the RT is pretty tall.......
