does anyone use those "goalpost" looking PVC guides do they work?they are supposed to aid you in backing down the ramp.i saw them in the store today just bolt onto the trailer.. for $50 they are cheap enough.. so of them even come lights-this is good help prevent from being rear ended.. the way i see it the more light in the rear is better.

I just bought a set of these. They look much better than 2 hunks of shitter pipe.
Only about 2' tall, but with the LED's atthe top, you won't miss them.

Thanks for the reply.. Yeah i was in west too. i kinda dig the PVC models.. but the ones you pointed out look better i think.. I installed some extra LED lighting on the rear of my trailer.. I am terrified of being rear ended.. i just thought the more ANNOYING light back there people will A.either go around me B.back the "F" off..
WWW.trailerguide-ons.com is another one.. The models in WM have built in tails lights and i think they might even have lights on the top of the uprights. THAT might be a bit too much However.
2 ft though? i'll have to see if they are in WEST MARINE (the ones you bought) LED'S might be good in the dark, but i am never bringing back my ski in the dark.. but if i can see then during the day well then that might be a good thing to have.

Once again thanks for the reply.. I went to west marine and bought the same as you.. i also had 3 gift certs so i paid nothing.. thanks for the tip.. might be short but i might be able to seem them while backing up

That's a great idea. I'm telling you i almost bought the white PVC ones and the lights that go up top.. would have been $200+ I think this will work just as good.. when you installing yours?

My trailer is all apart right now. I have to paint it before I can start to assemble it.
Thing is, I am so busy that I can't find more than a few mins of daylight to do anything. Last 2 night I get home from work and cut grass until dark.
When I have had the time on weekends, it is raining either one or both days.
I need to post pics in my trailer thread soon.

No Time eh?
hahaha There is a lot of that going around.. well i'm sure when you get it all together it'll be just fine!
Mine is nothing special just a Reg OL stock trailer.. plus some lights to make it more viz at night.. I see a lot of really nice trailers.. triton, shorelander...
Good luck with yours.. by all means when you get her all ready.. post a few. would love to see what you have been up to.

fabricated trailer guides
fabricated guides out of mild steel square tube using autocad then colour matched trailer with a powdercoat. used ABS 1 1/4" pipe and caps. Nylon sleeeve came from ebay.
Used high-grade stainless nuts and bolts to minimize corrosion.
should be sturdy and match the trailer. approx $230cdn.
