Car Bridge Question. For those of you setting up bridges. What is the minimum and maximum distance between rails. I have on a number of trips had to cross these bridges on my atv. This requires riding on top of the rails. It has been hairy on a few occasions. Do you have a set distance that you try and follow? Has anyone thought of placing them a little closer together to allow for easier atv access. It always seems as if there is plenty of room to accommodate my fullsize truck.
Ice bridges on Winnebago
Hey Fish Hound. I get that there are atv bridges out there. Problem is I am not always wanting to run miles to use one and to be honest, I ripped holes in my flip shanty bottom twice as have my friends using them. The one in Oshkosh has a sharp chunk of metal that is a hazard. I have plastic welded a half dozen plastic tubs that were gashed. That is why we started using the car bridges. I asked about the width for a specific reason though. I did not do it to bash the hard work done by the fish clubs. I love those guys. I wanted to know if there was a specific width because I was considering putting on 2" wheel spacers. That would increase my width 4" and possibly allow me to travel on the actual bridge.
Many shanties have a wheel base wider than that of a truck too so I'm sure they try and split the distance.
There are some clubs that place ATV bridges as well. SUNK does a great job of tracking and posting plowed roads and bridge locations.
