Swing tongue question

5 posts in this topic

I have a 3500lb Shorelandr trailer with 3X5 tongue that I would like to turn into a swing model so it will fit into my garage easier.

My question;

Is there anybody other than Shorelandr that makes a conversion or a replacement tongue? I have looked all over and all I can find are 3X3 and 3X4 models.

Check with Erickson Marine down towards Hastings, the guy that invented the idea works there or use to. Also 61 Marine sales across the road installed mine on the same size tounge. HTB

I've done all kinds of searching and am looking for a price for a 3X5. Shorelandr seems to be the only place I can find one that size. I will probably get the factory piece but I'm looking to see what an aftermarket price is so I know how bad I'm getting screwed. The 3X3 and 3X4 tongues are all in the $150 range.

I had a local welding shop convert mine. I am in Victoria so probably futher than you want to go from WBL. This guy cut the tongue and welded a couple pieces in place and I now have a nice swing tongue with no bolts etc. I think it cost around $75 and as I said it is all welded. I too looked at the conversion kits for around $150 but decided to stop in and ask. To my surprise it said it was very easy and would take an hour or so. I couldn't be happier with it.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
