you def have a smaller trailer in pic with grass. In the picture with the grass , if that is your set up...pull the ski up another 5-7 inches till the bow is in the roller. then you should be fine unless you are exceeding the weight limits on that trailer???? ...... and btw-thats a big ass ski !!!!!

The first is a trailer made for the SUV. You will need one with a longer tongue to be able to slide the winch forward and also have more load capacity if you can't find the SUV trailer.

you want the bunks to reach all the way to the back of the ski. They should at least be even with or extend past the rear. Over time, an unsupported rear can sag and cause what's called a "hook" in the hull

After I slid the ski forward, the bunks go almost to the back of the hull. They are pretty out of shape so I will look at replacing the bunks. I may also weld an extension onto the back and extend the trailer. I don't think weight capacity is too much of an issue. I would prefer to see the cinching force of the rear straps more downward instead of forwards though.

You can definitely tell the trailer is too short since the taillights are 1/3 the back under the ski. I think you can make it work. get the bunks where they need to be and maybe even look for a bow stop/winch setup that allows you to slide it forward more. If all else fails, look for a boat trailer that is longer and might fit better.

That's a boat not a jet ski man! Looks like you need a new trailer bro. The first one pictures is for sure longer

Eric where are you located? I could help you set up that trailer if you need?

Is that an adjustable axle? (Can you slide if forward and back by loosening the U bolts?)

I would definitely look at tongue weight if extending back of trailer. Ten to fifteen percent of total weight should be on tongue to tow correctly.
