Double trailer used as single?
Currently rebuilding just one gp1200, Have an MFI double trailer. I was wondering if I could move the bunkers ( I think they are called ) and have just one ski in the center? Id rather not tow both ( one wont be running ) or just have one sitting on 1 side of the trailer?
If I have to use just one on either side, does this really affect anything as far as towing, etc ?
Sure pics of my trailer would help, so let me know if they are needed and Ill post some help to help answer my questions...

If you can arrange the bunks so that it sits properly in the center there's no reason you couldn't do that....except the fact that you may not be able to get your front ratchet lined up with the ski as most double trailers I've ever seen didn't have the ability to slide the crank to the exact middle.
Just towing one machine on one side of the trailer is just fine, IMHO. I wouldn't go through any hassle to try to set it up for the middle, myself.

Thanks for the info.... I wasnt sure how towing just one would affect the load as it was being towed. Dont think I can move the ratchet, was thinking of just using some ratchet straps / tie downs to hold everything in place. If it to unsafe that way or too much of a pain, Ill leave it be ( with it being ok other wise )

There is no problems having the ski on only one side. It's not worth the hassle to move the bunks.
