    Download the free shop manuals at the top of the form. Should give the specs in there. They did for mine... 1995 SPX just under 400LBS...

    Drag your ski's to your local truck stop and put the whole set up on the scale. That way you will know the complete weight that you are towing. I did this a couple of years ago with my motorcycle and trailer and it cost like $12.00.

    I tow 2 seadoos (SP & GTS) on a double trailer with my 2.2L 4cyl Subaru. It's great on the boat launch ramps because it's all wheel drive. She's got 180k miles but tows the weight without hesitation. I'm guessing it gets around 22-24MPG while towing.

    well if your towing those two with a 2.2 4cyl subaru i wonder if a 4cyl ranger or s10 will be able to tow mine with ease..

    Re: how much do they weigh?

    Shouldn't be a problem..

    I use an '87 Dodge Daytona... 2.2 turbo, fwd, manual transmission. I tow a double trailer with my '94 XP and '97 SPX. Never had any problems at the ramps... other than not having enough ground clearance (it's lowered) to make easy launches when the water is low.

    Oh, and it has over 200k miles on it.

    I had a 1988 2.2 liter Toyota pickup that towed watercraft daily 300 days a year. You just need to be easy on the brakes and the clutch.

    The biggest concern should be what brakes you have to stop the load when thinking about trailer loads. A small towing rig sucks in the rain because it will not stop.
