If ground isn't level or weights not equal it can be a bit of a wrestling match.

    I have been timed putting mine together and it was just under 4 minutes from what I remember but with help it is 100 times easier . . .hell if you need 2 skis there should be 2 people present right ?
    easiest way I found was hooking the front together first then the rear will come together when u pull the trailer forward some

    I have the pair and if wasnt for ease of storage I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

    My list of repairs so far goes: wench bracket x2, bunk brackets x4(I hear now they come with a more HD bracket, tire fender brackets that hold the fender to the trailer all 8 brackets have broke at some point and no I don't step on them. Not to mention all nuts and bolts are forever coming loose!

    I wouldn't say I'm "hard" on these trailers at all, i do put s lot of miles on them,but they absolutely weren't designed to carry ultra 300 sized ski's.

    oh and karavans customer service was terriable for me time and time again until I got ahold of the "owner" after that he helped me out

    end of rant

    These trailers are very good for when you need to put them in the garage. It makes it very easy to put both in a 1 car garage area. I had to doo that at our last house and kept my HOA happy!!!

    The trailers are now under Majic Tilt. Karavan and Majic are virtually the same company and assembly plants in Edgewater and Tampa produce on demand. Lead time used to be 3 weeks now 1 week is possible. I have used these trailers and they have many befits. Inside the garage separated it is like a high grade dolly and can easily be moved or repositioned.



    That's me in the video.
    Can they ship this to Australia? I would be interested in some if they can

    While the two are married they only need one plate, I believe.
