The lesson for us was learning how they installed the trailer door gap covers in the snowmobile trailer.
Many enclosed snowmobile hauling trailers have a rear drop down ramp door and a front ramp door with the concept being that snowmobiles can be driven up the rear door ramp after you are done riding for the day, parked inside the trailer, and then the snowmobile can be driven out of the trailer by driving down the front ramp door. No need to manually roll the snowmobile into the trailer backwards on a dolly nor is it necessary to turn the snowmobile around in order to exit from the trailer.
Slider Plates for Rear Ramp DoorThe snowmobile racing team installed one 36 inch crossover plate over the top of the threshold between the rear ramp door and the trailer floor. This slider plate allows the snowmobile to be driven up the rear ramp door and then smoothly slide across the trailer door slider plate without having the snowmobile skis catch on the gap or be damaged by the interface.
You can clearly see the gap that exists between the rear ramp door and the trailer floor before the slider plate is installed. It is easy to see how the skis could scrape across this gap and become damaged. Damaging the trailer floor is another issue to consider here.
Our customer shared these comments with us:
“This (installation of slider plates) was very easy to do… (now) I will be able to drive and pull my sleds in backwards with dollies because I don't have to worry about that gap on the trailer door…(the slider plates are a) great product, very easy to install.”
Slider Plates for Front Ramp DoorThe other 36 inch slider plate was installed by our customer over the gap between the front ramp door and the snowmobile trailer floor. This is the ramp door the customer uses from driving their snowmobiles out of the trailer. This ramp door is also used for rolling other equipment and gear into the snowmobile trailer such as tool carts, generators, and rolling storage boxes.
You could “also install this (slider plate) on the front of the race trailer…you can wheel your generators in and out without having to go over the threshold of the door…great product.”
Wow…that sure makes us feel good!
