If you've recently bought an all-terrain vehicle and you plan to use it in several different ways, there's a strong probability that you'll want more storage space. While most ATVs have one or more areas in which you can store some of the items that you need to carry, people often favor adding storage accessories that can dramatically increase their ability to carry more. Visit a store or website that specializes in ATV accessories and browse some options that help with storage. You'll commonly find a number of different products that you may wish to add to your ATV, including the following.
Rear Storage Trunk
When you need to carry large items on your ATV, one of your best options is to buy a large storage trunk that you can mount behind where you sit. These trunks are typically made of durable plastic, which will help to protect the items inside of them. You can commonly lock these trunks, too, which helps you to keep your items secure. There are all sorts of storage trunks that you can buy, but many have a hinged lid that you can quickly open to easily retrieve whatever you're carrying.
Fender Storage Bags
As their name indicates, fender storage bags are storage accessories that you mount to the fenders of your ATV. These bags vary in design from model to model, but typically have multiple compartments that will allow you to easily store a variety of small and medium-sized items. A big advantage of storing certain items in a fender bag is that the items will be easy to retrieve when you need them. You won't typically need to climb off the ATV. Instead, you can simply reach down, open one of the bag's zippers, and grab what you need.
Front Storage Rack
You typically don't want to mount a storage trunk to the front of your ATV, as its presence can impede your ability to see the ground that's in your path. Instead, you can consider a front storage rack. This storage accessory has a smaller size than a trunk and, provided that you don't pile it too high with your items, it won't interfere with your forward vision. To store anything on a front storage rack, you'll need a set of bungee cords — which you can commonly buy wherever you buy ATV accessories. They'll allow you to tightly secure whatever you're carrying to the rack. Learn more about storage options at an ATV accessories store.
