Snowmobile Trailer Top Rack for Portable ideas?

7 posts in this topic

I would like to put a overhead rack on my Floe double snowmobile trailer to haul a portable ice shack/sled over the top of the snowmobiles. Prefer something that can be removed when not needed.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this before? I suppose a welding place could fabricate something, but custom may be too pricey. Thoughts or advice..?

Thanks!

I was almost thinking the same thing, I was going to put a platform to put on the bottom. I like your idea better....and it probably wouldn't be that hard to do.

make it as areodynamic as possible. one time I was in a hurry and instead of letting the air out of a tube I tied it down over my jetski and that thing pulled so hard. what if you made something removable so that it sat just above the seatsof the snowmobiles that way if you have the sleds on the windshields will deflect the air for you

I don't know how high your trailer sits but last year

when we were at LOW a group of guys pulled into the resort with

a trailer and mounted under the bed of the trailer was an alum.

box that held 2 portables (otter lodges) the set-up was rather impressive wishing now i would've taken pics

Had a friend stop at the lake and he had rigged up, well it is a trailer with sides high enough that they are even with the top of the handle bars on his 4 wheeler, then he has a hinged cheap aluminum topper cover with a false bottom hinged to the trailer sides on one side and has latches on the other so he can tip it out of the way.

He keeps his portable auger and etc in that, and is able to lock it all up.

Like said earlier I should of took a picture of it

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.

    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
