    Trailer Steps

    Has anyone added any steps to their trailer?

    Looking for ideas, I had to launch/load by myself several times last week and I forgot how much fun that can be.

    I think some steps on the trailer would make it safer/easier to do.

    Had more problems launching, my boat has to be pretty far back in order to float off the trailer.

    If the ramp wasn't so busy I would use a rope and float it off and pull it to an empty lane.

    As a cheaper alternative for most boats and ramps I was going to suggest this Shop Werner 3-Step Aluminum Platform Utility Ladder at Lowes.com Of course steep ramps would be a problem and for all situations one would want to replace the plastic post caps with the real nice soft rubber cane tips.

    No I have no idea on the price, but it sure does look nice. I have been thinking of getting one for my dad. (who am I kidding, I want one too because I'm lazy!!!)

    Edit: I looked over on bassboatcentral.com and apparently they run about $350 for the 3 step one.

    This will sound crazy simple, but it worked for me.

    I mounted my spare tire on the tongue of the trailer standing up vertical, and positioned it right close to the winch tree. As a result, I can walk across the tongue, and then step up on the top of the spare to get the height I need to climb up on the box. Picture shows it.

    Put a set on my boat in 2003 and they are the single best investment I ever made for my boat. No rust No problems at all. They went on 10 years ago and have never been taken off.

    Trailer Steps

    Just ordered my steps from Ezeestep yesterday. I had a grab rail added to mine for balance as you use them
    When I get them installed I will send pictures of my 97 205 Hydra-Sports boat & trailer.
