I saw a question on another forum saying that Canam recommend hauling this sxs cab backwards? I have seen nothing on that in the owners manual etc.

The dealer told me during the delivery walk around that Canam suggested locking the doors for transport. Makes sense since they are front to back opening doors that wouldn't fare well if one opened  at 60 MPH. 

I will be fabricating a windshield protection blanket for rock and bug protection when hauling on the trailer. 

Other than accidental door opening or windshield protection I don't see much difference which end you haul first. IMO

I haul mine facing forward.  I have doors but they are pretty securely closed.  I have considered using a bungie cord from door to door as an extra security but never have.

Lastly, these machines are designed to go forward - very fast - so aerodynamically  speaking, I would think that's the best way to haul.
