^ x2. I've also seen guys take a couple sheets of 3/4" plywood and slide them under the 2 front quads to hold the wood down and then park the last quad sideways on the back.
Usually 2 tires are still on the trailer portion and 2 on the wood.
strap everything down really well and check things frequently.

Hopefully it isn't one of those 2 place aluminum snowmobile trailers with the tiny tires. Years ago my buddies and i crammed 3 atv's and a small generator on one, and the wheel bearings gave out after 2 hours.

I have stood two quads up on end to get them both into the bed of my 1500 pickup. Turn the gas off, of course, and oil should not be a problem. I've had no anti-freeze leaks but then again my quad isn't beat up much so that helps.

Most of the fluid systems are sealed. The carb is the only weak spot.
