    Trailering the wrong wasy

    Just bought a double trailer and need to transfer one ski from a single trailer. It would be facing the wrong way. Is it a big deal?

    Why face it the wrong way? Just unload it on the ground and winch it up on the double trailer.
    But no, as long as itís strapped down it will be fine.

    It won't hurt anything..just make sure to strap it down good as it may not sit perfectly depending on how your bunks are adjusted. I've seen some trailer bunks pointed inward on the front end...when you load the ski backwords it doesn't fit the bunks right and will bounce around easier.

    Is the hook it the back of the ski just as strong if I use the winch to bring in on?

    Do you want it to be backward for some reason?

    If you don't want to slide it off onto the ground, unload it onto styrofoam blocks. I get the blocks for free from Lowes or Tractor Supply. They are used to ship trailers. All you need is 2 blocks for a ski.

    Just don’t really want to put it on the ground first. Was going to pull it from one trailer to the new trailer But the tail would would be facing the front
