    I'm partial to bunks as they provide some friction in case of some type of failure. Looks like alot of work sir.
    Very nice.

    One of the ramps that I use is on a very slight incline and need to dunk the rear half of my truck in the water to even come close to getting the bigger skis off with out pulling a groin. I went with the rollers for easy with that. Truck has too much money in it to be dunking it in salt water that much. Did have a problem once because of the rollers but that was my fault for not checking after my wife set the winches. Safety chains are also a big part of it!!!!

    Consider adding a hinged tongue extension.

    I added a Fulton tongue extension kit and it does make it easier to get the trailer farther down the ramp.

    When parked, the extension just swings around and the trailer is no longer than it was before.

    Thats quite a trailer ... my only concern would be ... on steep ramp inclines & your re-loading your ski might just slide right back off .

    Ive only had one issue with the rollers. And I've had then three seasons now. And not to take the blame off myself but the wife did hook the winches up for me, she never locked the winches. It was a steep ramp and the rxp-x came all the way off but the S3 hull of the rxt-x saved it from coming all the way off. That was a very costly mistake.

    If you do extend the tongue, you may need to shift the hull locations forward to maintain a decent tongue weight.

    I prefer a slightly heavy tongue weight to maximize trailer stability, which is especially important during sudden evasive highway maneuvers or emergency braking.
