    Adding bunks to a trailer?

    I have 3 skis, two sit downs and one stand up. I was thinking of adding bunks to my dual magic tilt trailer so I can take my stand up ski with me. Anyone successfully add bunks to the front of their dual trailer? I wanted to add the stand up perpendicular to the two stand up spots. I just have a problem with adding bunks to the curved section of the trailer....just looking for some ideas and pictures if anyone has any....
    Thanks in advance!

    I've posted it before, but here's another picture of my old trailer. I went with a deck, so I could carry whatever I wanted, 2 standups at one point.

    Very nice! How did you attach the boards?

    If you look closely you'll see a series of carriage bolts going thru the curved sections of the frame. I took pieces of pressure-treated 2x4, made about 30 kerfs thru the section that needed to be curved (cut halfway thru the 2x4 using a table saw at about 1" spacing), then I used some honkin' big C Clamps to pull the PT wood against the frame. Drilled, carriage bolted, and then used stainless deck screws to fasten the synthetic decking to it. The nicest feature of this trailer isn't even visible in that pic, it was a walkway, about 2' wide, all the way to the back of the trailer. Worked really well for getting people on and off the trailer that weren't used to doing that.

    thats a pretty sweet trailer set up and the walkway is a great idea
    do not go where the path may lead, but instead blaze your own way and leave a trail for others to follow
