    Look at a typical stand....

    Main bars are 24 inches across....
    Length about 4-5 feet...
    Total height about 20-22 inches...
    Cross brace atleast 10 inches under the highest point, for clearance...
    Biggest caster wheels you can find, atleat 250-350# rating EACH...

    Here is one I made from PVC...it actuallys supports an RXP and RXT-X perfecly fine...

    Danny, just how do you pull the ski off the trailer and onto the stand by yourself? Then, once it's on the stand, how do you get up into the storage trailer?... Ron

    its take a GOOD yank with one person, but 2 people can pull it off fine...Once it hits the PVC, its slides easily....to put back on, just spray WD40 or Fluid Film on the trailr, and push....the last foot or two just use the crank...

    Been doing it that way for years...

    Danny, thanks. I was wondering if just one person could get it off the trailer without using a winch. I was able to get an 18' boat back on the trailer one time with the winch, so I know what good leverage can do... Ron

    Ok, I will share this, but only because so many good stories start off with "here, hold my beer, and watch this......"

    I built the stand that you see in this thread. LOVE it. Easy, light...but then I saw the thread where the same stand (similar, don't remember whose it was) split in half at the joint and end braces under the weight of the ski. So I got some cheap cinch straps and wrapped them around the cross braces on each end. Works great.

    And then I was thinking about how to get the ski off by myself...and here is what I came up with - and despite being close to absurd, it works.

    Back the trailer (with ski) up to or close to some solid object - tree, another car, garage pillar...whatever.
    1. Roll cart up behind the trailer, put a bungee cord or strap around the wood frame of the cart and attach to the trailer so that as the trailer moves, the cart stays close behind it.
    2. Put a second strap from the back of the ski to whatever is nearby that doesn't move.
    3. Slowly pull forward....SLOWLY - needs repeating. As you move forward, ski is pulled backwards off the trailer, cart stays behind the trailer and actually gets pulled UNDER the ski as the ski comes off.
    4. Stop when you see the rear of the ski start to dip. You can easily pull it the rest of the way.

    This also works well if you get divorced and your ex gets the ski but doesn't spell out she wants the trailer as well - you can simply keep driving and thereby leave the ski in the driveway - you get the trailer and the cart (still attached to the trailer).

    Finished mine today!
    Works good.
    Built similar to Danny's.
    Got 4" casters at Harbor Freight on sale for $4.50.
    Wiggled ski off of the trailer and onto the cart by myself.

    Sammys' method is to get the ski off the trailer is funny. Easyest way is to just use a silicone bunk spray. I use a product called liquid rollers. As long as you are strong enough to bench 150# you can move your ski.
