Seadoo GTX Trailer, Homemade Project.
I will be building a trailer for my seadoo cause the one I bought it with was so weak it almost didnt make it home, (rust)
So I have started to design a easy to build trailer that i will build in my drive way and take pictures of the progress to show everyone, just for fun.
I have the plans and materials I need so i will start in the morning.
This is a 3DS MAX model of the trailer, and what it will look like and function like. I like to build stuff in 3ds so i can see what kind of problems I might run into along the way.
I put the vid on youtube so the will have to approve it then it will be viewable.

Two things I saw that you may want to change:
1. Take the front corners off, I think it would just be a place to bang a persons leg on.
2. You might need 2 bolts for the bunk adjustment, to hold it better.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Good luck with the build.

are you going ot make it street legal??
keep the bunks ona single bolt, if they swivel that is good.
cover the bunks with something?? carpet?
the bottom of the crossmembers "V" shaped...those are gonna drag real bad over curbs driveways ramps etc.
you need road clearance not just ski clearance.
you can leave the front corners on the trailer, good spot for diamondplate or storage lockers or gas cans.
if you are going to move the ski alot, could use storage, if its just a trailer for trips to dealer and to store over the winter, skip the extras.
i dont know if i asked this before, but why not just buy a used trailer??
all those cuts and welds are in high stress locations, most off the shelf trailers have solid crossbeams, either straight, or slightly curved "u" shaped. but solid across. your "V" has a major stress point on the weld?

I agree with the above, and you do not need any rollers.
You flew rollers into the picture for a moment. You do not need them.
Put carpeting on the bunks and use STAINLESS STEEL STAPLES! not steel ones.......
