Tough fit by Billy - Durango, ColoradoAugust 24, 2013

Haven't tried the steps yet. From the photos it looks like it needs to be mounted on the tongue of the trailer. My trailer has a 2 foot section that is removable. I need to remove it to fit it in my garage so can't mount it on the tongue. I payed around a bit with different placements and decided to mount it a bit further back on the trailer frame. I'll be in a little deeper water when I get in the boat but that also let's me avoid having to step over the electric trolling motor to get in. I'm hopeful it's enough out of the way that I don't hit the steps if I drive the boat onto the trailer a little crooked. Time will tell. I haven't had it in the water yet to test it out. I'm also not using the "hand rail" piece. A plastic cap on one of the tubes arrived broken. They are supposed to be sending a replacement but haven't seen it yet (about 3 weeks). ..

Great Product Although More Engineering Needed by Robert - Menomonee Falls, WisconsinMay 04, 2012

1. item was delivered in two days, awesome. 2. Package was pretty beat up, looked like someone had retaped the box. 3. Two of three pipe cap ends were cracked and broken. 4. Install went fairly quick. Located and mounted on the tongue next to where the winch frame is mounted. 4. Here is where a little more engineering would make a great product even better. The small handle that is used to keep the ladder from swiveling and swinging into the boat hull is impossible to tighten with just your hand. The first time I tightened the nut by hand, the ladder swiveled and crashed against the boat hull, making a nice gash. In order to really tighten the nut, I took a rubber mallet and smacked the handle until it was tight. Now the ladder will not move. Next, when you insert the handle bar into the ladder assembly the ladder wobbles because the receiving end of the pipe is considerably larger than the handle bar. I probably will try to find a bushing that I can insert to tighten things up. And I will purchase 2" vinyl pipe caps to replace the broken caps that came with the unit. All in all, even with the couple of needed tweaks, it is a great addition to the trailer. And iBoats order to ship time was great. Would recommend purchasing this item from iBoat.com.
