Snowmobile Trailer Top Rack for Portable ideas?

Recommended Posts

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..?

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

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
