How does everybody trailer their Getaway with Beachwheels? I recently bought a Getaway and a set of Beachwheels and I’m trying to understand how to trailer the wheels with the boat. I owned a 16 in the past and that was straight forward as the wheels would sit on top of the hulls just forward of the front crossbar and secure. With the forward trampoline on the Getaway that isn’t possible and I feel like there is enough boat left to set the wheel down in front of the forward front trampoline crossbar. Do you carry the wheels under the boat secured to the trailer in some way?

Thanks

Thats the most common way I've seen, yes. A little more of a pain to get out but easily secured.

My beach wheels fit on the trailer alongside the sail box, front to back.

Yes, that is what I was ultimately thinking as well, putting the wheels next to the sailbox on the trailer under the boat as well.

Then the next question would then be how do you secure the wheels to the trailer? Did you make a bracket of some kind to set the axle shaft on or do you have enough ground clearance to let the wheels hang down letting the axle shaft simply rest on the frame of the trailer?

I have a Genesis trailer, and there is plenty of ground clearance with the axle on the trailer frame. I use the rope (to tie to the boat) to tie down on the frame.
