Looks great. Do you suppose it can support 2 winches and 2 spares? Where did you get the winch?

Thanks for the great idea!

It would easily support 2. Winch was from local wrecking yard for 5 bucks.

Great build. Especially for someone without a welder. This would be great for all to see but you have a limited audience since it's in the Roo forum. I found it by accident poking around.
Good job

Great idea, any closeup pics of how you mounted rails to trailer frame?
I see the crossbar appears thru-bolted, what about the side rails, same?

Sorry, but your product description made me laugh. Makes me recall the number of times in the past people asked me " What is unistrut, where can I get it, and what colors does it come"

Sherman, retired wireman

Nice job though, its nice to see that there are still a few mechanically inclined people around.

Works great for TT that have an open under belly, mines closed so in my book that's to much work. But does look great and gets it out of the way. Hard for thieves to snag.
