I purchased my first mountain sled, a 154" Summit X and drive a 2017 Silverado with the 5.8 foot bed. I am wondering if anyone has any tips/pictures of hauling long tracks with short beds? I picked it up with a borrowed trailer. I do not want to buy a trailer because if I go out west to ride, I will be riding with friends that have enclosed trailers. I also do not want to deal with more axles, tires, registration, maintenance, etc that comes with a trailer if I do not have to. I will only really need to haul at most 100 miles one way a few times a year. I am debating making my own "single sled deck" like the Marlon one that is available. I have a welder and tools available to me and would feel comfortable making it, I am just wondering if anyone has made their own or owns one like it and what their opinions are. If someone has made one or has one, would you be willing to share some measurements and pictures? Any other tips or tricks? I am thinking with some angle iron, some plastic bedliner for ski guides, some caster wheels, tools, and a few days worth of planning/brainstorming I could have one made (hopefully a working one). One more question, where would be the best place to secure the sled? I am thinking one ratchet strap on each side going to the rear of the running boards from the tie down points in the pickup? I do not want to bend/break anything. This is my first post, hopefully I am putting this in the right spot. Let me know if it should be somewhere else!
