    three place trailer

    hey guys this weekend i will be welding up A three place ski trailer out of two single trailers and some extra stock. but my real question is what is the average tongue weight of a two place trailer? i don't figure this will be that much more heavy than a two place trailer since it will be two stand ups and a sit down that will be transported on it.

    Tongue weight should be at least 10-15 % of the load its carrying.........

    Tongue weight is typically 7-10% of the total weight of the trailer plus the load.

    For a 2,000 lb combined weight trailer, the tongue weight would be 200 lbs or a little less.

    Keep in mind that is a static weight. Going down the road, there will be bounce and jolt, so the dynamic load and flex on the tongue will be much more.

    depends on the skis...

    2 ultra's are 2200lbs loaded and a large standup is 400lbs loaded. So 2600lbs for the big boys.

    2 Pro785's are 1200lbs loaded and a CF SJ is 300lbs loaded. So 1500lbs for the weight watchers.

    Trailer weight depends on the builder...200-400lbs.

    Deja Vu

    Didn't I see these same pics before? And didn't the poster say that it is too wide for the door?

    It looks less than 8ft. Why wouldn't it fit?

    I could swear I have seen these exact pics before, another board maybe?

    IIRC the poster mentioned it would not fit after that axle and tires were installed on it.
