Default Custom Jet Ski box trailer?

I am looking at building somthing for my jet ski in the back of my truck, I'm thinkin somthin with 2x4's pvc and somehow a winch, I want to be able to remove all this when I dont have my ski with me, just wondering if anyone has done anything like this or has any ideas, keep in mind I am trying to keep this cost efficient, here are a couple of ideas im working off of.

Not bad! I like the low cost option too!! I'd look into putting something like carpet over the PVC to help stop scraping the hull of the ski.

Did you choose those casters for a reason or just have them lying around? I might have chosen a little larger diameter wheel if I was buying them new.

I assume the roller ramp hangs off the boat dock and into the water, correct? Perhaps the cheapest casters are best since they're most likely not sealed and won't last all that long.

Will the roller ramp slide/store under the ski during transport? What keeps it attached/aligned to the tailgate during loading/unloading?

Rep points for ingenuity!!!

Looks like a great idea!! not sure about going about making one yourself!! maybe someone else has done it or you might have to take a look around at it being done in different vehicles!!
