Nicely sized trailer, in good shape - available in CL right now. It's not mine, nor do I know the seller, but I figured that someone one here might be looking: utility Trailer $475

Here is a trailer that I just finished up

Here are a few pictures of a trailer I just finished up. I picked the 5 x 10 tilt trailer up off of Craig's list and here is a list of the things I added:

1. 2 3/4 plywood panels cut to 6 X 4.
2. 4 heavy duty door hinges for the front panel
3. 4 of the rollers from Northern Tool
4. 1 bow roller (to guide the winch cable)
5. 1 Superwinch UT3000
6. 1 Marine battery
7. 1 Battery case
8. 1 Rigging to attach to the raft to load using the winch

The back panel is attached with just 4 bolts to allow easy removal if I need to haul something else in the trailer and the rollers are also on a removable back tailgate panel. Also this was about 1/2 the cost of a Sportrailer which was what I was originally going with. Happy Rafting

Does anyone travel with the boat touching the rollers? I was worried about the raft bouncing around on them. I have been sliding the raft forward so it doesn't make contact with the rollers when on the trailer, but not sure if I need to do that or not?
I wouldn't worry about it. You're not going to hurt the rollers and your raft(s) aren't strapped down at the rollers, I assume. If your boat is strapped to a stationary part of the trailer, at 2 points, it won't go anywhere.
