    Need to see converted boat trailers to 3 ski trailers

    found plenty of good used single and double axel boat trailers of all types and was wanting to see some pics of your converted trailer. I don't want the length of the 4 ski trailer where the skis are nose to tall. I was wanting three skis in the pyramid shape. Just needs ideas
    thanks

    Your limited to 102" (8.5 feet) wide in the US without permit.

    If you planned to put the front ski sideways it would have to be an X4 or smaller (even spark is 110" long).

    Yea, this is the problem.. I was trying to figure out out to trailer pontoon + ski together with 1 tow... thought about front sideways loading ski.... but its way too long to turn sideways.

    I'm finding these types of trailers at Shadow Trailers. But they look really pricey and I'm afraid to find out how much they cost.

    How much of an angle away from 90 degrees would the bunks have to be to get the entire third hull to fit within the 102" allowed width?

    If the required angle is within reason, it might be doable with the right trailer structure.

    I am imagining something like 30 degrees away from perpendicular to the trailer axis.

    .

    You would need one hell of a tow vehicle to pull that.

    I've never seen an angle ski like that, I did think about that but was concerned about length. That's heck of rig with triple axle trailer, thanks for pic.
