joeyb, first congrats on such a well maintained garage. Wow!
Is that the Hobie cradle on your trailer? No issues with indentations? And are those the 8" tires or did you replace? And does it come with the front brace as shown on your picture? Very nice.
Thanks...you should see the other side...lol
I was lucky enough to find (Craigslist) and purchase this trailer from a gent that was using it for a canoe. It had padded bunks/cradles attached to cradle holders. Had to purchase the Crossbars from Trailex and the Cradles from Hobie. Pretty sure I was one of the first to add the PA Crossbars to an existing SUT-200 trailer. Because they only supplied (2) mounting brackets with the CB's and after a few (back and forth) conversations with them, was able to convinced them, it needed (4) per crossbar.
Anyway, as long as you do not store anything else inside the PA or leave it tied down to the trailer...there should be no indentations created from sitting within the cradles and on the trailer.
Tires: use the 480 x 8 tires...no issues to report.
Front brace: (Bow stand) I am pretty sure it comes with the kit...but you might want to double check directly with the dealer before purchasing.
Also, for those inquiring minds...Trailex contact info:Trailex Inc
