Trailer Questions and Size (Colorado)

What size trailer would I need for a 13 foot raft?

Would I do fine with an 8x5?

Anyone in CO have one for sale?

Is it a flat bed or utility style? I'd think you would be okay if you can use some planks to widen the trailer. It okay for the raft to extend a couple feet bow/Stern but I wouldn't want my boat to be wider than the trailer.

Trailer Details at Hitchin Post Trailer and Tractor Sales

I bought one of these last year and have been very happy with it. You can get a 7x10 or 7x12. For your 13er, 10 feet long is plenty

Thanks Fuzzie. Those look great. I was hoping to pick up a used one for under $1k. Don't mind putting some work into one if needed either.

My current trailer is a 5x8 utility trailer with a 7x11 platform on top, plenty wide and long for my 13'. All told I'm into it less than $700, including a new axle, tires, wiring, and decking materials.
