    525 lbs for my XLV. It makes my Ridgeline squat 2.25" at the rear axle. I originally used a Class III Reese ball mount (rated for 500 lbs), but a friend watching from further away saw it bending...

    Even better would be forward-scanning capability. The joke about consumer-grade depth finders is that they are great for telling you that you just hit something.

    Question for those who have use the current Mojo tower: can the swivelling wakeboard racks be reversed to swing in at the FRONT of the tower? If so, I could mount my hydrofoil rack to swing in at...

    I haven't seen the older A22 up close. By lack of bases, do you mean that some design other than storage compartment walls hold the seats up? The current A22 has normal seats with storage, similar...

    Thanks! Were they the redesigned 2015 Axis models? While I value wakeboarding more than surfing, I want whatever I have to be fully qualified for both.

    Also needed is hydrofoiling. Just about...

    I'm looking at 2015 models that are currently in stock, mainly because good used ones that aren't very old have pretty much all disappeared from local inventories. In the case of the A22, I would...

    The A22 is newly redesigned for this year. The upholstery looks and feels at least as good as my older Moomba. I don't know whether newer Moomba models have gone up or down in quality here.

    Mojo vs LSV vs Axis A22

    Howdy, folks. I am considering updating my XLV to a newer model. Who has had a chance for a detailed comparison of the new Axis A22 (or even A24) to Moomba's medium to larger models?

    So far, I...

    After finally getting the right small crowd that let me do some experimentation a couple of years ago, I finally found that I had been doing it wrong (and suffering for it) for eight years. <sigh>

    Howdy. Given the rating inflation that has historically happened with makers of body-on-frame trucks, I would be skeptical of the 6500 lb rating for the Tacoma. Did anyone believe that the old...

    1. Change out any fluids and do other routine maintenance that's anywhere nearly due. By "nearly due", use the manual's harsh service interval.

    I have had this on my to-do list for years! It's hard when the boat is normally so far from home.

    A new one is 5-10% of the cost of a boat, but doubles the value of having the boat for towed watersports. When there's foot-high chop, wakeboarding is more exercise than fun, but you can still foil!
