Default How do you transport your snowmobile?

I am a college student doing a research project on the snowmobile industry and was wondering what vehicle you use to transport your sleds? Chevy, GMC, Dodge etc. or do you leave your home on a sled? And what kind of sleds do you have? Thanks for the help!

Been thinking of refurbishing a C-130 for future sled trips with the guys. Maybe a little over the top though.

If conditions allow, I leave from my garage, and catch the main trail 1 kilometer up the road. If we don,t have enough snow here, I have a 2008 Ford F-150 Limited 4X4 that I use to pull my 2007 Yamaha Apex RTX ER loaded in my in-line 5X20' enclosed trailer.
