Make sure the hinges and stops for the clam shell tops are installed correctly.
Pay extra and get the best trailer tires available or replace the tires immediately after you pick the trailer up.
My tongue is 63" long. It doesn't need an extension even if I want to add a box or bike.
You might consider an extension for the winch if you have a big, flat boat, but that might possibly interfere with your plans to add a bike tray on the front.
The spare tire is in a bad spot. I moved mine to the front.
I have the same setup and agree with cmharris, including the spare location. I'm hoping to add the bike hauler. There's plenty of space inside for all the gear and dry boxes to support several boats, I haven't even thought about putting a cooler on the outside.
