    Default noob here

    Been skiing, mtb, riding motorcycles ( offroad ) decided to try this snowmobile thing out for real.

    I know twostroke on here.. and petrolburner

    Ill be getting a new 2014 ski doo summit sp 800 163" when it gets in.

    What are the cover deals you can put on the skis so they dont tear up the floor? Twostroke told me but I forgot. Ill get some wheel deals too.

    Welcome! there are quite a few different ski boots available if you don't want to put down ski glides in your trailer

    I was going to put superskids glides in my trailer. But I was talking for the garage and driveway... is throwing it on wheels the best?

    Wheels work good. The ones that strap are best imo

    Welcome to the forum!

    The ski boots tend to fall off when you turn or back up, wheels are much more versatile.

    Thanks ordered these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Twostroke uses cheap harbor fright dollys I might grab those too if I need to slide it sideways in the garage.

Size:  155.1 KBI have the sure grip dollies, they are almost 7 " wide & work good. I haven't loaded them completely in the trailer. I alway stop at the ramp & place the plastic squares or some pieces of trailer glides under the skis first. I have no idea how wide Doo skis are but there is plenty of room for the Grippers on the Poo.

    This set came with the center dolly for the track so you can wheel it around pretty well too.

    I liked my sure-grips right up to the point that one of the wheels broke in half... They don't work so well on three wheels

    NICE!!!! I have my eye on the 2014 Polaris RMK Pro 800, but I want to use my current sled for a few more years, before I purchase a brand new sled! Congratulations!!!

    Got my dollys they are holding up an invisible skidoo right now.


    Hurculined my trailer floor it was getting bad.. sanded and hurculined it before I get it soaked all winter with snow. Normally I just haul my motor sickles in it. Oh ordered superglides II or whatever to put in the trailer.

    Just need my sled and for winter to come!
