Want to trade for a Slee with tire carrier?

Kaymar must be tow bumper with pivots and at least one tire carrier.

Also no shipping must meet and swap...

I know it's a long shot but what the hell

Limited towing capacity with the Slee rear? I have a 22ft Cuddy Cabin fishing boat with a 250 Merc Outboard on the back and was hoping the Slee rear would still do fine even though i see it isn't tow rated... Please chime in as I haven't purchased my rear bumper either but will be soon and this is an important factor for me...

jgray, there was a thread within the past 2 months that discussed towing with the Slee bumper.

thanks guys... i did read this thread previously and i think the bumper will probably be fine towing my boat...

i was just wondering if this might be a reason for swaping the slee for a kaymar?

jgray: I too have a 22 ft cuddy cabin boat with a 225hp motor. I have the Kaymar rear bumper which is great for towing. From what I have seen, and based on my experience with other aftermarket rear bumpers and towing, the Slee should be no problem at all for towing. Unrated does not mean unable.

You just can't sue anyone if something bad happens, and I think you also open yourself up to lawsuits from others and non-performance from your insurance company! (Said partly, but not fully, tongue-in-cheek! :hillbilly:)

IMHO, if you really want to tow, I believe the Slee bumper will still allow you to bolt up a rated tow-hitch with the appropriate hardware.

I think the fact that he specified that it had to be a tow bumper was an indicator, even though I believe all Kaymars are tow bumpers (though I could be wrong on that).

So how about it ckkone, what's the intent?

Nothing to do with towing or weight.....

I got a new trailer and the Slee swing out hits the rock guard on the trailer making it nearly impossible to access anything in the back of the truck when the trailer is connected. It also has a little to do with dual swing outs and personal preference. Here is my new trailer:
