Transporting a Slingshot

Because of the single rear wheel of the Slingshot vehicle, it cannot be towed by a conventional tow truck or car dolly. Never tow the Slingshot vehicle on its wheels behind another vehicle. 

To transport the Slingshot vehicle, always use a trailer or flatbed truck. A trailer must have an approved load rating greater than the actual weight of the Slingshot vehicle, including any installed accessories or cargo. 

Follow these guidelines after loading the Slingshot vehicle on a trailer or flatbed truck.

1. Place the transmission in gear.

2. Engage the park brake.

3. Turn the key off. Remove the key to prevent loss.

4. Secure all cargo and other items or remove them from the vehicle. 

5. Secure all storage compartment doors.

6. Block all wheels at the front and rear of each tire. 

7. Always secure the frame of the Slingshot vehicle to the transporting unit securely with suitable tie-down straps. Do not attach straps to the lower front trim. Secure the tie-down straps to the lower front A-arms (1) and rear swing-arm (2). See illustration.

Make sure you know the weight of your cargo and the safe working load limit (WLL) of your straps. The WLL is a measure of the maximum weight the strap can safely handle. The combined WLL of your straps must be greater than the weight of your cargo. If the vehicle weighs 1,000 pounds and you are using four straps, each strap must have a WLL of at least 250 pounds.

8. Never allow passengers on a trailer or in a trailered vehicle. 

9. Reduce speed and drive with caution while transporting.

Slingshot Towing

Selecting a Trailer
When selecting a trailer for your Slingshot, make sure you’re selecting one that accommodates your vehicle.

Compare the weight of your vehicle, accessories and gear with the load rating of the trailer. Make sure the trailer deck is large enough for your vehicle. See the chart below to find the length, width and height of current Slingshot models. A Slingshot has a maximum wet weight, which is the weight with options and accessories, of 1,749 pounds (793 kg).

If your model is not listed, consult your Owner’s Manual to find the dimensions.

When choosing the correct trailer for your vehicle, it is important to consider the Gross Trailer Weight, which can be found on the trailer's Vehicle Identification Number label. The weight of the trailer and your vehicle cannot exceed the Gross Trailer Weight. When trailering your Slingshot, make sure there is proper weight distribution. Generally speaking, 60 percent of the cargo weight should be loaded in the front half of the trailer, and the vehicle should be centered left to right. Check your trailer's Owner's Manual for more information or talk to your dealer. 

Your Slingshot Dealer or trailer retailer can help you find a trailer with the number of axles, style of ramp and other features that best suit you and your vehicle. To find a Slingshot Dealer near you, use the Dealer Locator.
