Not sure if you are still looking for empty snout frame photos, but here’s a few of ours. This is a frame we inherited many many years ago. We are always tweaking and making mods to it. I frequently brainstorm building an entirely different frame and getting a real trailer to haul it, but we typically end up just making what we have work for now. Typically having to decide where to spend our money - motors, motor repairs, trailer tires, trailer repairs, etc.

We don’t use any heavy equipment to move it around. The frame lives on the trailer and we’ll typically get together 4-5 people to lift one side at a time to rig the tubes on.

We have done a full derig at the takeout and were able to get everything moved by hand with only 5 of us. Tons of work, but we did it. This was a low water Lake Powell year and the lake level was well below the Dirty Devil “ramp” - giant mud pit mess. But our frame did slide nicely on mud - like a mud sleigh. Ha!

At the bottom of the frame, the floor width is 45”. Top deck to the bottom of the floor is 21”.

Newbie posting here, so my apologies if my pics are not showing or not attached correctly.

That is a beast!!! Do you drop the tubes to transport or roll the dice on the road at just under 10ft wide?

I really like the idea of you towing that trailered boat with that Corolla station wagon.

Thanks, guys!

Yep - we transport with tubes on and inflated. The trailer it sits on is 8’ wide and the tubes overhang a few inches on each side. Well, I guess that’s actually a few inches on the bottom end. Total girth - yeah, prob just under 10’.

Ha ha ha - sorry to crush your dreams, but no - we do not tow it with that old Corolla. Ha ha ha!
