    I just grab the front rubrail and brace my legs against the trailer and push.

    silicone spray will make the transfer easier, but BE CAREFULL!! I once ended up with a ski on the floor and the dolly out the door of the shop by just trying to roll it around. I also have plastic bunk slides on the dolly...

    I had lots of practice learning how to do it when I worked at a dealership.
    It was alot easier with my 600 pound Polaris though.

    i built a stand that slips right under the transom of my ski while it's on the trailer... I have bunk mates on my trailer bunks so i'm able to just get one swift pulling motion real quick and pull my rxt off the trailer and it goes onto my stand... with two people it's very easy.... just pick up the back of the ski and drag it onto the stand... the bow of the ski will jsut drag along the trialer bunks as long as you get the weight off the back.

    do not move your trailer from the driveway, down the ramp, or ANYWHERE without your ski secured to the trailer when you have bunk mates installed. it's as slippery as ice and you will lose your ski onto the pavement before you can even blink. other than that concious routine, i love em. it makes launching my ski a breeze and makes transferring the ski to the stand real easy.

    Harbor Frieght sells a pretty good 1400 lb electric hoist for about $150. It works great for lifting my skis. I also ran an I beam the length of my shop to mount the hoist on. Overtons sells a good lift sling.

    I have always wanted to do that, but I haven't had the shop yet...what size/thickness I-beam did you use? did you build a frame on the ends for support or are you using the walls of the shop?
