    Question Washing Skis on a 2 place trailer

    How do other people get this done? when i have my 2 skis on the trailer, there is almost no room between the 2 to wash them up (after every ride), do maint., inspections, etc.

    My current ideas to correct this are:

    1. Use current trailer and move 1 ski off onto a shop rack every time I need to get at both sides, which is after every ride, then move it back onto a trailer.
    2. Buy the karavan trailer single/double trailer combo.
    3. Buy a 4 place trailer and stagger the 2 skis - 1 front left, 1 back right.

    The width of the 2 skis is 96" inches, so only 6 inches left over.

    Put 1 on a cart or buy a different trailer.
    My triton elite double has a walk way between and its tight but there is enough room to work.

    I solved this problem by adjusting the bunk placement on my trailer. I have a yacht club trailer, so 2 u bolts per side were all i needed to work with, and with some careful measurements i spread my skis on the trailer enough to get between them.

    What? I guess I'm not really seeing the problem.
    With my ShoreLand'r double trailer, there is a board down the middle and it's tight but you can get in there. Just climb up there and sit on one ski while you clean up the other one. It's not perfect, but it can be done. And honestly, you should still be able to access the inside of the engine compartment from the OUTER SIDES, left or right. Moving your ski back and forth off onto a shop rack after every ride sounds ridiculous to me, but I guess it's an option. Anyway welcome to the forum and I hope you get it sorted out.

    So the bow roller and winch stand does not exactly align with the hull?

    It aligns perfectly, i forgot, i had to move the rail that the winch is on, but it has 1 bolt front and 1 in the back to slide it side to side as well. Here is a stock photo... i just realized i haven't taken pics of my skis on the trailer...

    It's basically all modular with my trailer, very adjustable. The rail that the winch is on is basically on the outside end of the cross bar that it rides on in the front. The outside edge of the skis are slightly inside of the outer edge of the fenders.

    A winch and roller not aligned with the hull properly would be very dangerous in my opinion...

    It's hard to get a nice wax job with my wash brush... My skis get a coat of wax every 2-3 outings, i so have to get in between them.

    I've had my two place EZ-loader for years now with 2 ski's on it. I have never considered it an issue. Like mentioned earlier, I use a telescoping RV brush on the hulls that are inward and any maintenance is done from the side. If I'm doing some serious work on one, then I'll slide it on to the rollaround.
    Other than that, It would just be more work than it's worth.
