    Is the tongue of the top trailer resting on the boat below it? I would hope it isn’t but hard to tell from the picture.

    back to op's original question, we have had both side and under. depending on the grade of the launch ramp, I had a HORRID time in wisconsin with the under mount. I blew a tire once and scratched up the rim with the bow hook several times from the under. we had to be careful loading with the under. after that, I vowed to NEVER have an undermount again. it was only an issue on the ramp in wisconsin we used. never an issue in Idaho with same trailer.
    if I paid for side, I'd force boatmate/dealer/skiers to fix it if it was me.

    nice boat and enjoy...

    No. Look at the trailer frame under the bow and you will see a red padded cross bar it is resting on with straps holding the frame down to it. It's just extending over the other boat.

    I think Iím going to see if they can remove it and refund me that option amount. I donít think it will be real hard to weld one on the side. Fortunately the front of the trailer is black so paint match should be easy. Iíll know in a few hrs.

    You can buy side mounts that bolt on pretty cheap.

    From a looks perspective I think I’d rather it be mounted below. Cleaner lines when looking at the boat and trailer from the side without some wheel and tire hanging off it. You already have 6 wheels to show off so I don’t think a 7th on the side it going to mean much to anyone else lol. I know it wouldn’t to me lol. I suppose I just like the cleaner look of it hidden or underneath even though it might not be as practical as a side mount.

    After having an undermount on our travel trailer, I would opt for the side mount. When towing the boat, Iím dressed for the lake, not changing tires, and the last thing I want to do is crawl underneath the trailer to retrieve the spare.

    Talked to the dealer about the undermount spare. After looking at it in person I’m going to leave it. It’s really out of the way and does clean up the look on the right side of the boat. It’s just one pin to pull and the assembly hinges down to access the tire. Not as bad as I suspected.
    A few pics from tonight. It was getting pretty dark when we got back. And a pic of our previous sl with my little one sad to see it go.
