I have a Proline 4 place inline but I'm really glad I kept my old Floe clamshell.

Just to follow up on from the original post... I ordered a 12 foot hybrid deck over from ProLine today. The amount I plan to use it will only be a few times a year and it's not a lot of highway. It will also be easier to store in the garage being shorter than the inline.

On top of the standard build I added these options:

10" Spare Tire
Wall Mount tire rack for spare
7 way round trailer connector plug
LED Backup lights
Upgraded LED Interior lights
Ski Glides and Caliber Trax Grabbers
RV Vent Cover (So I can keep the vent open in the summer and not care about rain if I do keep it outside)

Total = $4840 and it will take a month to build, supposed to be done on Feb 8th. I let my wife pick the color, she chose black.

Deck over is the way to go and the ramp angle is a non issue. If trailering a few times a month for hours each way then I could see possibly see a inline. My 4 place is extra tall 7' and pulls fine, it's a Stealth which however probably wouldn't be my next choice.

The ramp angle of an inline is an advantage for using the trailer in the off season. I've owned both. I don't like to trailer my motorcycles but sometimes it happens and the inline is way better than a deckover for that purpose. My 900 lb Stratoliner would drag the header in the deckover at the transition (it's low and mean), but the inline is perfect.

Call Aaron today and tell him you want to add the side mount reverse lights. Best $80 I ever spent. They make backing at night much easier because they light up where you want to go, not just where the trailer is pointed.

You will be very pleased with the ProLine. Congrats!

Putting aside the debate over inline vs deck over for a minute. Does anyone have a opinion on a 7.5 v-nose inline vs a multi purpose 8.5 v-nose inline such as the Mission MCH 8.5? How much will the extra width effect visibility? Looking at a Mission 7.5 x 18 it's rated to hold three sleds but their 8.5 x 18 does not specify capacity. You think the 8.5 x 18 could hold four sleds?

I love mine! I did add the extra 6 inch height, no bending over inside the trailer!

I checked them out, I think they will be useful backing up next to the garage so I just added them. Thanks

I'm sticking with the standard height, I'm not planning on hanging out in the trailer. I have to cut the cost off somewhere.

Understood, I also added the plug receptacle on the outside and outlets in the inside in case you wanna put power to the trailer......

Depends on what the sleds are and how crafty you are. I know guys who have put A Renegade and 2 shortys in a 7x14+V and I have a buddy with a 7x18+V Snopro who has squeezed 4 short tracks in. Proline lists there 7x16+V as a 2-3 place trailer. You could always mark your floor out to the inside box size and see if they'll fit. If I was going to buy an 8.5x18 I think I would just go 20' and make my life easier. If you're crafty, you might be able to get 4 in the 7.5x18.

For that matter, one of the guys I ride with put a Freeride 146, a RMK155 and a XRS shorty in a 12' Hybrid last year. People will do strange things to ride lol.

I'm in the same boat. Looking at inlines now there are just so many options......I just bought a new 12' Nitro Hybrid 3 weeks ago now I have an extra family member who has decided to get back into riding so I'm going to have to sell it. 50% of the time I'll only be hauling 2 sleds. Aaron at Proline said I should be ok with a 7x16+V for 3 as long as they aren't all long tracks. Be a little crowded but I won't be hauling a bunch of extra empty trailer space all the time.
