    How & Can a PWC trailer be stored?

    Good Day All!

    The below is the issue I'm having followed by my question:

    Issue: My 2005 SeaDoo RXT takes up too much room in my garage sitting on my full-size Zieman Trailer (see attached picture). Parking my PWC on its trailer anywhere in my neighborhood, i.e. driveway, side-yard, street, etc. is not permitted because I live in a community with a strict Home Owner's Association.

    Question: Viewing the attached picture of my backyard/sideyard, is it possible for 2-3 men to lift the Zieman trailer pictured in my post, with the PWC dismounted, 4ft. up in height to place it where I show with the RED arrow? Also, can the PWC trailer be safely stored upright/horizontally against the wall w/o damage? Anyone know the weight of this trailer?

    I want to store the trailer in that area and place the PWC on a PWC dolly for the winter.

    Thanks in advance for your replies!

    Why not change to a smaller, lighter trailer?

    A Triton welded aluminum single PWC trailer is roughly 300 pounds.

    One way to find out. Drink a couple beers and try lifting it lol.

    If 3 can't do it I would say y'all need to hit the gym ��

    Here in the U.K. garages and cars tend to be smaller......

    a good option is a shop dolly for ski and a put trailer on its side. No idea about the zimmer trailer but frame will be fine might be best to remove wheels...
    Shop dolly fits under ski so only loose dims of ski in garage the trailer can stand on end or side when not in use.

    your trailer does seem very large for a single ski......

    I had the same issue with my HOA so I bought a 2post car lift and lifted a pair on the trailer and park under them.

    Looks like he made some adjustments and goes above the skis
