View Full Version : Trailer conversion

02-28-2008, 03:03 PM
I am going to buy a 91 190 next weekend. The trailer has a fixed tounge. Can those be alterd to tip? or a friend of mine that has a bass boat has a tounge that slides off. Garage on the house I am buildng is billed @ 19.5 feet deep so I am worried about clearence even with a retractable tounge. Without one I am just shot in the foot.

I have a 92 190 and a 19.5 deep garage. When I looked at the pivothitch concept I still couldn't figure out a way to get the boat in the garage based on where my boat sits on the trailer. Keep us updated as you go through this process and pics would be great. I'll be interested to see if you can pull this off.

in some garages you have to remove the platform, make a swivel hitch, and put the boat in then angle it to the side to get them shut.

Or... build a deeper garage.

Or... build a deeper garage.

This is likely how we are going, or a hybrid anyway. Getting an extra 2 feet out of the garage AND adding the tilt hitch. We may be putting a garage door for access under the house on the high side.

Well after going over the plans with the builder, we will be putting a pad under the house and parking it there.... I will have to let the boat dry up well before moving it down there. Any moisture hazards I am overlooking?
