I use SLP Ski Slips to protect the floor from the carbides. Easy on/off doesn't help if sleds are studded.

My trailer is 24' box with 3' V and I have plenty of room for longer sleds the pictures are 4 -137's, the fourth sled in the V couldn't be any longer.

I also drive in from the front every time easier to load from the front and drive out the back.

loading from the small front ramp doors can't be fun. I have a hard enough time un-loading from them without boogering up sleds

Its actually easier to load from the front then unload even with small door. I can do it alone but usually there is someone that can stand in the trailer just above the ramp and they help guide the sled as I drive them in.

I've tried a couple times unloading from the front and it not easy. So for the past 8 years all sleds are driven in from the front door for me.

I will be setting a new trend driving all the sleds through the side door.



I will be trying them all out and see what works the best for me.

I am usually alone. I use mine only for storage. It's a small hole to hit when my skis barely fit through the door. Mine is a deckover RnR Snowfire. I have a door on each side of the V.
