pics of my three place trailer build
ok this is not a finished trailer yet but its getting close its been fun. steve from DownSouth Kustoms (757) 232-0740 did a great job on all the welds. the original idea was to use parts from my two old trailers to build a 3 place trailer. what ended up happening is building a completely custom trailer ( due to the condition of the metal on the other trailers) but im so far real happy with it just have the cosmetic stuff to go (fenders,lights Etc.) tell me what you think?

ok i ran into a giant snag yesterday when i went to mount the bunks. my garage door is 8ft wide a standard sit down is 48" wide if you add two of those together side by side thats exactly 8ft. i need it to be about 7 and a half feet to comfortably fit through the door as well as not rub the skis together. i thought about making the outer bunk on both sides higher so they will both lean inward but how do i figure out how high the bunk needs to be to get three inches on either side

I do see 2 other issues that I hoped you addressed. 1 is did you allow width for your tires and fenders to fit through the door and is your axle welded in place or adjustable?
One other piece of advice. Do a search for a galvanizer in your area. I was fortunate enough to have one local to me and I had mine hot dipped for the same price it would have cost me to have painted.
Good luck on the build.

thats actually a good idea that doesn't require any mods. yes i have accounted for fender width total width of the trailer with fenders is 7.5ft the axle is welded. yes i had thought about a few different paint options. galvanized was one the other was having the trailer line Xed
