    Looking for photos of decks, trailers, etc... (anyone carry two???)

    M1000 loaded without a deck here with a block of wood between the bed and tailgate to help distribute the weight:

    They're not that big, our trucks are just small, haha. This is a 162" track.

    The skis were about 1.5" too wide to fit between the wheel wells so it's one up and one down. I think a Skidoo XP, or something with a slighly narrower stance would fit right in.

    If the rear of the load is more than 4' from the back of the truck you need a ribbon in the day or a light at night. In BC anyway.

    I think the photo makes it look worse than it is - perspective distortion.

    I don't even like hauling a machine in my full size truck bed unless I don't have a choice. There are alot of trailers out there that you would be really happy with, either enclosed or just flat bed with drive off fronts and tilt beds. They also come in handy in the summer for other toys. I have a 28' enclosed and a 12' 2 place open trailer. These make things simple for me.
