Default Maxum Boat Trailer Help/Question

Hi Everyone-

We just bought a 2000 19' Maxum 1900SC. I was really hoping to fit the boat in our 3-car garage for storage and keep it out of the weather. When I measured the boat on the trailer the width and hight are all good but the length is about 12" too long. The trailer the boat is on seems to have a really long tongue. Looking at some of the newer boats it seems like a lot of manufacturers are putting the swing tongues on the trailers which would solve my problem. Does anyone know if it is possible to convert my current trailer to a swing tongue trailer?

Thanks for the help. Looks like I might be doing a little self-help project to my trailer in the near future!

Just to let everyone know I ordered that kit and had my marine shop install it. I didn't have the tools to cut the trailer frame or the special torque wrench for the bolts so I let them do it. They charged me $150 (2 hours of labor) to do the job. I am so happy with how it came out. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. Thanks for the help!
