Who is the guy
 
>>> that decide all trailer jacks must be fitted on the passenger side of the frame? What a maroon:rolleyes: And why do all the builder follow along? Low boys, flat beds, boat trailers, car haulers.. you name it. I do almost everything alone and running around the darn trailer is a huge hassle.

I have now moved the jacks on all three of my trailers to the drivers side with no adverse effects. I didn't get a rash or jumbies or anything.

No longer will I do laps around the trailer or smash my shins on the frame. sheesh.

All my trailers r on the drivers side of the car. Are you driving on the wrong side of the car? Do you have one of those postal carrier jeeps with the driver on the right? Am i confused?

I just quickly looked at saved photos on the phone and every boat trailered on there has the jack on the left side (drivers side of car).

Just unlucky I guess.

lifetimewarranty 07-23-2012 2:33 PM

All the ones I've seen(and paid any attention to) are on the drivers side also!LOL.:p

You know? All my stuff is old. me too. There may a connection here.... yathink?

tyler97217 07-23-2012 2:48 PM

Yeah all my trailers have been on the driver's side.....

shredthagnar 07-23-2012 2:55 PM

Maybe he's just into european trailers. Haha

SacSurfer 07-23-2012 2:56 PM

My Boat mate trailer from 07' is on the driver side

baitkiller 07-23-2012 3:11 PM

Tool feeling in full effect. Thanks fellas.

Monday sucks... At least I took the first set ever on the restored '79 Nautique this morning. Been down hill from there.

jarrod 07-23-2012 3:12 PM

I've had 7 different boats in 10 years and every jack has been on the drivers side. :-)

baitkiller 07-23-2012 3:24 PM

Y'all are just piling on now... Pack mentality, like dogs...

kskonn 07-23-2012 3:27 PM

Ok I will help you out, My boat trailer is on the driver side but my car hauler is directly in the middle. So none on the passenger side but one in the middle, we are getting closer!

nitrousbird 07-23-2012 3:39 PM

The EZ Loader for previous my boat, our current SMP trailer, and my open car hauler are all on the driver's side.

mikeski 07-23-2012 3:54 PM

Of the last 3 trailers I have owned I had one on the driver's side, one in the middle, and one on the passenger's side (that I relocated to the driver's side). I agree, stepping over is a pain. I guess I would need to run around if I were in a dress...

07-23-2012 3:56 PM

Maybe one of your buddies has pulled a prank on you and switched them to the passenger sides when they were really on the drivers side :)

Awesome you got to take out the '79 CC today!

baitkiller 07-23-2012 3:57 PM

Thank God. 5:30 is here and I can have a beer..

cadunkle 07-23-2012 3:59 PM

Passenger side on mine. It never bothered me and I never gave it any thought until reading your post. It's just the way it is and it doesn't bother me or affect my routine. I'm pretty quick, but putting the boat away isn't a Nascar pit crew operation for me where every second counts.

I was really impressed with the wake. 23mph at 70' it was steep, narrow and clean. I dunno, maybe a little less than knee high. Quite booty. No ballast just full fuel, 3 adults and six kids it was way better than the old outboard. Water was choppy as heck so everybody took one quick set and came home, went to work.

Raf1985 07-23-2012 10:09 PM

I have never had one on the passenger side. I'm going to start paying attention to that at the docks now.

markj 07-24-2012 1:44 AM

So this whole time I'm thinking the guy posting this must be from the uk. I checked your profile and now it just seems you either have bad luck or are dyslectic.

LOL....thanks for the chuckle. I was thinking exactly what you wrote, as I've never seen one anywhere except on the driver's side. Of course, I can't say I've actively paid attention to notice. I've had 5 boats and all 5 trailers had the jack on the driver's side.

Im trying to get my hands on one of these but maybe you should have one too to sport with the new Ski Tique. Theyre from 1978!

williamburell 07-24-2012 12:27 PM

I have one on both sides :) One in the stock and one further back on the frame since my driveway immediately shoots the shy after you exit the garage.

srock 07-31-2012 2:01 PM

Now that you mention it I have found myself hopping over the tongue thinking this is a silly set up...or maybe it was because I'm left handed and always feel crossed up. I also find the wheel is always in the wrong direction or won't spin around when needed.

val_cal 07-31-2012 10:31 PM

My cousin's 99 BU has it on the passenger side.

wakebordr11 08-01-2012 6:06 AM

My eagle trailer has it on the passenger side. Since I'm not a wakeboarder or athletic, I have a really hard time stepping over the trailer tongue to kick it up. I also don't do a pre-ride inspection of my rig, I am a lazy American... time is money
