  • Storing Pontoon

    Hello, Should I store my 24' pontoon on blocks or leave it on the scissor trailer?
    Thanks,

    Both. Lower the toon until it rests on blocks to take the weight off the trailer. Why, I don't know, but it answers your question.

      I am one of half a dozen that share a scissor trailer left to us by a fellow neighbor that passed quite a while ago (he had been sharing it for a good 10 years or longer prior). We store it under the last boat pulled, but as a courtesy to others, that boat will be resting on blocks so the trailer can be accessed easily.

          this time of year, a scissor trailer will print money. My buddy uses his to pull about 30 pontoons around the lake at $50 each. His 'toon is the last out and first in every year.

            That's the beauty of a scissor type. With one of the newer ones, you can set a 'toon right down on the ground and pull the trailer out from under it. You can't do that with a float on, not easily anyway.
