    Shorelander PWC trailer guides?

    I have a shorelander PWC trailer and can see it reasonably easy when the seadoo is there,but when seadoo is unloaded and trailer is empty I find it difficult to back it into a parking spot or when backing the trailer down the boat loading ramp.My tow vehicle is a Nissan pathfinder and the spare tire is mounted mid-point on the rear ,totally blocking my sight line of the trailer. Has anybody used a trailer guide or similiar so their trailer is more visible?

    Just bolt on a pair of PVC trailer guides, you'll be fine.
    You can usually get these in a kit at a trailer shop or see link here.

    Reading again, looks like you have a swing gate so lifting your hatch doesn't make sense in your case.

    Looking at the guide ons, it seems funny that the longer guides are 2x the price of the shorter when the difference only seems to be the legnth of the PVC. I must be missing something.

    I like the idea for keeping the ski off the fenders when loading and for spoting the trailer...with the hatch down.

    I have a full size chevy truck and I installed the guide posts eight years ago, they work great, no need to put down the tail gate when backing down to load the ski. I have replaced the pvc pipe (from Home Depot) twice and now have the heght I want. Also towing at night I can tell if the trailer is doing any thing funny. Install some reflective tape around the top of the post and you can see them at night.

    LOVE my 4runner. Just open the trunk when backing it in and pulling it out
