I'm hoping to building a trailer that can fit either a Wave or a Bravo. Can someone please give me the dimensions of the tramp not including the seating area on top of the hulls? Most important is the distance from front to back cross bar.

Eric,

Ya, I can do that. Im going out this afternoon and will measure it for you. Just the fabric side to side and front to back?

What do you have in mind for the trailer. Not sure I understand what the tramp dimensions have to do with how it loads on a trailer. Would think you would want inside to inside and outside to outside of the hulls if anything?
I can check mine tomorrow if no one else posts up for you!

hobiesrock,

Thanks for the reply. I agree the width is the most important dimension. What I am planning is to space the cross braces the approximately distance of length of the tramp. I want to place a tie down strap over each hull, front and back. I'm also planning to put a second level on the trailer to haul canoe and/or kayak. It may turn out the spacing is too far apart but i need to start somewhere.

Thanks,
Eric

Eric,

I got caught on the ramp in a thunder storm and then forgot about getting your measurements. I am planning on going back out today. I can get a few pics as well. Anything in particular help you out? It is sitting on the trailer now.

Jim,

No hurry. A pic of the side view that shows how the Wave sits on the trailer and how it's strapped down would be nice.

Eric,

The one pic from under and behind the boat sitting on the trailer was nothing special, if I can figure out how to get if off my droid and put it here I will.

The tramp measures 89.5 front to back x 53 inches wide. That is from insides of the cross bars and insides of the hulls.
