    Enclosed Trailer Help.

    Anyone have input on how to setup a 24' enclosed trailer to load and unload ski's?
    Some of the racers have to have pictures or input. I would like to get started building this thing asap. Please help.

    I have backed the single trailer and ATV right into my 16 foot box trailer.
    works great. you just use the ATV to load unload from water.

    Ive also seen people use the 4 wheel beach carts with ease.
    with beach carts you should be able to fit 4 ski's and maybe a wheeler in a 8x24..

    A small 12volt DC winch mounted up in front of the trailer will help you get the cart up the ramp if your by yourself. two -three guy can roll a boat on a beachcart up the trailer ramp with no problems without a winch.

    Couldn't you buy a standard cargo trailer with no wood in it; or remove what wood there is? Then you could install bunks to the frame and expanded metal on top of the frame so you can freely walk around in it.
    My only fear would be that you would need to really secure the back doors for when you are pulling it out of the water.
    The only other issue that comes to mind is that you would need to remove the electric brakes and install hydraulic ones.

    You know what, I think I just got your idea right.

    I'll build a metal frame with Bunks on it and attach small wheels and use the winch to roll it down the ramp to load and unload then winch it back in. What do you think about thata?
    Just need room in the front for a Full Bar/Party Room and WFO work area

    Need input. Come on. I know one of you guy's have done this before.
