Just a lil tight

19'-6"x 19' garage..........20"-9" boat..........23' x1 trailer. Btw the garage slopes out so it was a ton of muscle, one car jack to get it off the nali and 1 neighbor to set the blocks inside.

I put double layered 4mil plastic under the rear tires. Worked pretty well but my garage slopes down so i had to take it off the truck 5' short and push it in. I think my back in toast

With the tire skates in place, you could leave the boat hooked up to the truck until it is almost all the way in the garage.

I wonder how backing would be with the skates on the trailer. Especially if there was a side incline or angle instead of up hill down hill angle. Prolly not the best of ideas but it would be fun to watch someone do it with a BU.

Yeah, even if you had someone trying to push around the back of the boat it would be hairy! Imagine once it got to heavy for someone to keep from jack knifing on you in the driveway!!

I'm thinking you could have it 90% of the way in the garage before the wheels go under, then a few inches at a time. I move my trailer sometimes just by moving the wheel chocks 2" ahead then a little shove. But I already have a bad back, so I always look to try to save it from getting worse. Just sayin'.

I can imagine it would end up with a homeowners claim. Yea skates would have been easier once it was in but I already spent 100 bucks today replacing the jack and wasn't sure it would actually fit. The plastic really did seem to help though
