PVC dolly failure?
I've read some people comments about the PVC failing b/c sunlight cause it to weaken.
Does this include black PVC?
Anyone ever have on of these break?

PVC does become brittle in sun light. Yes there have been a couple people on here that have had them fail. I've built a wood stand for my ski for when its in my garage but i dont leave it outside. Its worked great for 2 seasons. I'm gonna buy a nice aluminum PWC cart and use the wood stand for a stand up. I would rather spend a little bit of money on a cart that doesn't have a tendency to fail then find my hull laying on the ground. Just my .02

I made this custom jetski stand out of 2" square tubing, 1/8" wall and welded everything together, heavy duty casters with independent lock - Incredibly sturdy, will hold all skies, can work on the hull comfortably and with the swivel hinge it'll conform to any hull design. I've put all types of skies on it. Check it out, I sell them also - PM me if you're interested.

A good quality manufactured PWC cart isn't very expensive ($300, including shipping), compared to the value of the machine(s) you will be putting on it, and the number of years the cart will last (almost forever).
I have three Aquacarts (AQ-19 model), and they work well for me. Get the larger casters, and brakes on all four corners
I like not whacking my shins on the trailer frame when working inside the hull, and the larger casters make it easy to move it around.
I spray Liquid Rollers onto the bunks, and use light gauge straps from the bow eye and rear hook down to the cart rails to hold the ski in place on the cart. No chance of the machine sliding off the cart, but it is easy to transfer to and from the trailer.

Don't pay $300!
Here is a good deal on an aquacart!

I have bought many from Pat Lavoie, he is H20Prods on ebay or superior watercraft products on the net. Several people I know have purchased these also, I can put my 4 seater SUV over 1k lbs and 12' long on his HD 3 seater version. These are a good deal at around $150 call him and tell him Bill Bartleet "OsideBill" sent you he is really fair on pricing and shipping.
These slip right up to my trailer, lock the wheel's and slide the ski on. One man job
SUP-Low Profile Heavy Duty is the ones I buy
