    Question trailer guides

    ALL,
    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.
    thanks

    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.

    Question

    Hey,
    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.

    Glad to help, just hope they work out as you would like them too. Price was right too!

    One thing, if they are too short, you could always make them longer with a pc. of aluminum or even some of that PVC pipe and put them on top.

    Whatever you do, post up some pics.

    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.

    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.
