I will be trailering my TI whenever I finally get it but im not quite sure my trailer is long enough...

Matt what is the distance between the TI's cradles
and what is the distance between the TI's rear cradle and the tip of the bow.

Thank you

Also Matt, any more information you can give us about the TI's new style cradles?

The forward and aft cradles (both molded as the same shape) are suggested to be spaced at 67" like the others, but they can vary a bit as the fit is not as tight as the AI.

With the cradles both for the AI & TI spaced 67" apart (good!), where does the extra 2 1/2' of the TI fall while trailered, compared to the AI? (fore vs aft)

Will an AI "sit" well on a TI cradle, or does it have to have it's own style cradle?

Thanks Matt for all your help.

The AI will not sit well on a TI cradle correctly. The TI's bow touches or nearly touches the hitch coupler and hangs off the aft of the trailer a little more.
