    Looking for modified trailer pics

    Hey guys, I know a lot of you have more than two skis. I'm just looking for modified trailer pictures. I have my SLX and SL 750 on one trailer and my Hurricane on another and eventually I'll have a second Hurricane running someday. I'd rather spend the money I don't have on my skis and not trailers. So anyone with modified or home made / converted boat trailers post me a picture please. I really need a four or possibly even 5 place trailer. I know I can buy a four place, but it's not in the budget anytime soon. Other ideas are welcome, for now I just need to move the three skis around. Tow vehicles are a 1999 Yukon and a 1989 YJ with a 7 inch lift and tiny 2.5L, so basically I'll be using the Yukon.

    Oh my other idea was to lengthen the two place and throw another axle under it. What do you guys think?

    I would look at something like this.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CUSTO...ayphotohosting

    Item number: 220087455290

    Then you can sell you other 2 trailers and get this one for almost free.

    Well, you saw my trailer in the other post:



    It was just a 2 place jetski trailer, but rated for 1900 lbs. Bought it 4 yrs old from a dealer for $400. My original plan was to build a deck for lounging on at the lake (we don't have beaches here, just various sizes of gravel!), but then the standup idea came up. Spent about $100 on Trex, and carriage bolts hold pressure treated 2x4's for the framework. Hardest part was bending the 2x4's around the curve. Wound up doing a series of cuts at 1" intervals halfway through the board.

    I slid the 2 couches back as far as I could, to try to compensate for the tongue weight. It's still outrageous. Probably 400 lbs. But my truck can handle it. However, now the majority of the weight of the sit-downs is in the middle of the barge boards, and I'm sure they're going to break! So I've gotta buy some 5" C channel, and put another brace under the barge boards in the middle.

    I thought about trying to put some really long barge boards on there, and put all 4 skis in a line, but this trailer wouldn't have been long enough. Maybe a long flatbed would work?

    Thanks guys, I have been to that site before Crazy. They have some sweet setups there. The idea of stretching my double is growing on me. I figure some steel and a axle assembly from Northern Hydraulics or the local Tractor Supply store. Then there is the issue of the fact that a twin axle is supposed to have brakes. I guess the price of the axle assembly just went up if I do it the right way.

    I saw this one at the races if it helps. Looks like a boat trailer.
