Does anyone know where I could get some trailer slides for less then the ususal places such as Dennis Kirk, hpe ect. They are all running around $115 and up for a set for a 10' trailer. I would like to get them a little cheaper. Any help is grateful.
I did not like the prices either, so I made some from 2-1/2 pvc pipe split in halve. I used 4 foot lengths and split them on a table saw. It cost me a couple of bucks for the pipe and the bolts. They work as well as the set I bought for my old trailer.
J R Graham has the slides. They come in 5' sections. (black, red, purple) The weight is supported by the ski, not the runner.
17.50 each for black. 20.00 each for red or purple. Any order over 75.00 (take 15% off) They have a real decent catalogue.
I gave a local truck accessories dealer a case of beer for an old bed liner. He gets them free when he applies those spray on liners and has them laying around. I cut it into strips with a skill saw and riveted them down. It was a great deal since he drinks cheap beer!
