snomobile and utility trailer question

5 posts in this topic

I just bought my first snowmobile (used) and it sticks out the back of my 4x8 utility trailer. As a result, I can't use my ramp that folds up. Also, the sled doesn't have reverse.

The trailer is an H&H with solid 1 foot high sides and a 4 foot ramp that folds up on the back. I'm wondering what suggestions does anyone have on loading and unloading the sled off my trailer easily. Winches, modifying the trailer, etc.

Cut some holes in the front to get your ski's threw.

Otherwise you may have to get a new trailer.

I thought about cutting the holes, but I cringe at the thought of hacking up the trailer. It's a nice trailer. I was thinking about buiding a ramp inside the trailer so that the skis would be up over the top front and the track would be down near the bottom back. This might help with unloading since gravity would help me out a bit. The ramping might make it so I can use the gate/ramp again. Has anyone seen this done. Any pics would be great.

I would cut holes. They would not be that big and you can do it nicely and cleanly. After all, it is a tool, right? We cut out areas in our trailer (wood though) to allow a duck boat to fit with the tip sticking out front and also rear tip sticking out "tailgate", and we also cut notches in the top so the 12 foot boat fits right in where we want it. It works awesome, and is "custom" wink

I would think that would be best for the utility ofr what you are trying to do. Heck, its a trailer... smile And with the holes would be a more useful trailer for you. Good luck with whatever, but I bet you end up either getting a new trailer or cutting holes, when all is said and done. Been there wink

i have a 6 by 8 and the sled sticks out the back with the gate. i just run the sled upon the trailer and the us straps to hold gate up at tight to the sled works just fine.

    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers. 
    • When did I claim the election was rigged? It was influenced by Russian propaganda and you have a President that is in all likelihood blackmailed by Russia.    And that is equivalent to some Saudi's donating to a charity somehow? Note that Trump's charity was shut down because it funneled money directly into Trump's pocket.
