Ok so a friend of mine and i bought a Jet ski a while back and we have been both using it. He is moving to FL. and is no longer going to be using the ski. Woot for me. But the problem is no trailer. We custom made a mount for the ski on his ATV trailer that bolts on. He is taking the ATV with him so i am left with a ski and nothing to put it on. I have the bolt on set-up for it so, I am thinking since money is tight if i could get my hands on a small trailer Axle that someone has no need for or a small trailer that someone used for something and has no need for it. Looks don't matter. All i need is something to start with. I can fab the frame to work with what i got. And hitches are cheap and easy to find if all i get is an Axle.


Thx, Tim

No room in the back of mine. Top cut off, 35" spare tire in the back, also a tools Air tank and compressor. Yha not a lot of room back there. And the ski is to heavy for me and the wife to lift so trailer is what i have to go with.

if you cut the top off you can do what i did... it has a small winch up top that pulls it up the ramps ;)

If you're still looking for a trailer i've got a perfect trailer for you. It used to be a jetski trailer so it has the sealed lights and all. PM me if you're still looking.
