    Moving skis from trailer to cart?

    Im going to be moving to a condo and I wont have room in the garage for a double PWC trailer. How are you guys moving your skis from your trailer to the rolling storage carts? These newer skis are a little heavy and I dont think ill be able to pull it off the trailer. I plan on buying a engine hoist to hoist the skis but whats the easiest and safest way? The skis will be a FZR and some type of 3 seater ski for my girlfriend (STX 15f or FXHO).

    Moving them from the carts to the trailer should be as simple as hooking up the trailer and craking it on up right? Thanks guys fo you help. Im trying to get everything I need this off season so I can be ready to ride come spring time.

    Anyone recommend a certain brand and style of storage carts?

    Hey Leonard,
    not sure if you saw this or not, but we have an entire trailer section and a shop section. Maybe you can find stuff in here... I know it's been covered many times

    Thread moved to trailer section.

    Spray some silicone spray between the hull and bunk some and it will help let it slide off easier

    Custom PWC stand

    Leonard, I build Custon PWC stands, 2" square tubing (welded design), 1200lbs rated load, each caster turns with independent locking and you can have it built to whatever height, length & width you desire.

    The ski sits on swivel hinges that'll conform to any hull design. It's incredible sturdy and will hold any PWC on the market with ease, makes the other stands look like a toy.

    Those look really good and they are priced very well. Only flaw that I see is that they are much taller than most double PWC trailers and you will have to have a hoist to get the ski on there. On the other hand it will make it easier to swap out intake grates and what not. I researched the slings and they are not cheap at all .

    A case of beer and 4-5 buddies. That was the easiest/cheapest way I found to do it.

    Leonard, that's the beauty about "custom" it can be built to whatever height, width & length one desires.

    This stand you see in the pictures the customer requested it sit 19" in height (with the casters on). He wanted the option of disassembling the casters at anytime which will give him a total height of 14.5" once the casters are off.

    I've made them 12" to 26" in height, whatever the request and it's super sturdy design will handle any ski.

    kansasflareside, + 1 on the case of beers & 4-5 buddies, always works like a charm
