i'm going to be installing ski guides and traction mats onto a triton trailer and was wondering about positioning. can anybody post up some pics so I can see where you guys are putting them? I can't decide if they should be all the way over to the edge of the trailer or if they should be lined up with the edges of the plywood. Looking for some help....thanks

If you'd like to set up for dual runner skis, you'd probably need to move them further out than for singles.

If you haul atv's at all, try these. Hell, even if you don't, they work great. Wider than the regular glides and not as slippery when wet/snowy.
