21SS vs 21SSL

I am thinking about getting a ROO (or Shamrock) 21SS. I found a 21SSL listed for sale. What is the difference between the 21SS and the 21SSL? Thanks.

The "L" model has a front deck for carrying motorcycles or big stuff. Have you not looked at pics of one?

If you NEED the deck, the SSL is the way to go. If you only think you need it, don't buy one.

I had a SSL when we used to run ATVs. it was fantastic for that. Once we got out of ATVs and went to side-by-sides, we couldn't use the deck any more, except to haul things that I could have put in the back of the truck.

The #1 disadvantage is an SSL pulls at highway speeds like it weights 15,000 pounds. Its like towing an open parachute. Also, its just a 21SS with another 8 feet welded onto the front. The axles don't get relocated. So it and extremely long distance between the hitch and the axles. Getting in/out of tight spots is nearly impossible.
