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 thinking about making the same thing for my utility trailer.

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
