snomobile and utility trailer question

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Good idea but I have 1 multiple feeder so that’s where the ground birds are. I tried wiping the post down with the repellent but that stunk too. Might need to do two feeders. 
    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
