I made one. It's 12' of square tube that slides into a slightly larger square tube welded under the tongue of the trailer. The 12' piece has a hitch coupling on the end, and it stores on the trailer, off to the side. In use, it provides an extra 10' - necessary when I was towing with my wagon. After I got a truck, I didn't use it. It was quite a pain and added time to my launch and retrieving. A built-in tongue extension would be nice -- just pull a pin and it slides out another 4' -- but the design of my trailer really doesn't lend itself to that. The two main rails of the trailer bend and form a welded V near the front -- I'd have to cut that away to get a piece of square tube (extension) to fit between them. Wouldn't be impossible. Just a pain. I'll see how the new truck does. It's an "off road" model that sits up higher, and it's longer than my old truck. I'll be happy if I can open the door and step out onto dry ramp.
Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
