Odd about the height but that's a function of the roll cage and perhaps the 1000 being newer might have lowered it. Seems that Honda rarely fools with the dimensions of their SxS (that's what Clearly Tough told me anyway...their windshields fit every 700 ever made I think). Now that I think about it, the dealer might have had a 1000 on the lot. It's technically a 3 seater isn't it? Like I said, the 700 was already bigger than what I intended to buy. Being a 2016 end of model year, when the salesman told me the price I was shocked (in a good way). Was only slightly higher than the Polaris 570 that I though was really tight. Sounds like your biggest concern is your trailer. I had an almost new 10x5.5 landscape trailer but the ramp gate was barely 5' if that...sold that at a loss and stepped up to a 10x6 which is fine.

I would go with a front mounted winch with synthetic rope and carry another 100' of synthetic line for emergency purposes. I have always had a factory roof on my side by sides but a cheap low profile option is the canvas top similar to a jeep.

I've been watching the side by side market and I've noticed lots of comments like this about the Pioneer 700...see below...really makes me wonder. I hope you have a great experience with yours.

I've only had it for a few months and haven't fully put it through its paces yet. It did fine during deer season in a mix of terrains but certainly nothing like what the guy in the video was doing. I will note that the automatic transmission reminds me of the old Jeep 3 speed automatic where it seemed like it was powered by hamsters on a wheel (hence why very few people opted for the automatic). I think I saw that auto/manual is available as an option on the 700 (might be standard on the 1000). I didn't check it out because I got the last 2016 on the lot and it's the automatic.
