    Trailering different size skis

    Hello all,
    I'm planning on making a 400 mile round trip next month with my skis. This is the first time doing this since I got a new ski, a 2009 Yamaha FX SHO. I'm putting this on my double trailer with my 1996 Yamaha WB2. Other than looking funny, are there any issues with putting the skis together on one trailer with such a weight differential?

    The blaster weighs about 400 lbs and the FX is bordering on 800 lbs. They fit on the trailer together just fine, however I am thinking of increasing the tire size from the 4.80x12 to a 13 in. tire. I also need to add the bow stop.
    Thanks!IMG_5994 (003).JPG

    There won’t be any problems…

    I tow my double trailer with a Sea Doo 3 seater and a 550SX stand up with zero issues.

    The 85” width of the axle is more than enough for stability. I tow my rig to the River on a 300 mi. trek since the mid ‘90’s.

    This is why the tires are on the outside of the skis. Not the inside or underneath. Stability. The weight keeps things distributed correctly as well.
