Default modified my trailer today...much better

when i bought it there was nothing in the front to secure the boat. it was a lift off stle trailer that i may dip once in a while so i fabricated the bow catch spare mount and ladder to access the deck gracefully. what cha think? Btw finally managed to fit the 2 center pipes, wat a pain that turned into!

looks good. Can you still lower the tailgate with the ladder there?

Did you fab the ladder or modify an existing ladder and install? It is a great idea, especially on a deep v. to access bow.
Nice job looks very custom and part of the trailer

Nice and clean, if you can lower the tailgate.

Looks great. Beats climbing up over the winch assembly.

i plan on installing an electric whinch when i find one i like for the right money. i can move the ladder aft 6 inches when i do. the crank handle on the winch forced everything forward so i could swing the handle. anyone need a brand new hand crank winch assm only installed once and never used?
