I just ordered a small (4'x8' bed), fold-up trailer for hauling my boat and gear to and from the river. Does anyone else have a trailer that small? I was thinking of doing something similar to what Danadog shows in the picture, but am not sure the trailer is really big enough to do that. My boat is an NRS Otter, 14' x 7', so it's not quite twice the size of the trailer bed.
As sad as it may be, my towing vehicle is a Mustang GT.The boat is almost bigger than the car! It actually says in the manual you can tow with it (1,000 lbs), so I am not too worried about it from that perspective. I am more concerned about wind load and the boat itself.
I guess I do wonder how much all the stuff weighs by the time I get it on the trailer. The trailer itself weighs less than 300 lbs, so I have 700 lbs to play with for the boat and all other gear. Seems like most of the weight, after the trailer, is the cooler full of beer!
I'm thinking I'm best off to just haul the boat deflated to be on the safe side.
