    Need idea for adding bunks to trailer

    Hey guys, I have a 16 foot utility trailer that I would like to throw some bunks on it. Anyone have any ideas for mounting some bunks?

    AHA. This may give you some ideas. This was a two place watercraft trailer that I modified to carry my motorcycle and RXP. It can quickly be changed into a flat bed utility trailer if need be also. I welded trailer hitch receiver stock to the trailer and then used 2" square tubing to slide into that to make the risers. I drilled a cross hole through all that and used pins with keeper clips so that the bunks can be removed without tools. The wheel chock is attached with thumb screws and can also be removed quickly. One of the best things about having the trailer a flat bed is being able to walk around on it when I need to do something to the ski. If I need to access the grate I just feed out a little of the winch strap and slide the ski back a bit. I do always use back tie downs when I tow, wouldn't want the Doo to accidently slide/roll off!

    So the bolts run through the wood, then secure to the trailer.....the PVC just stays secure from the wood.
