If your buying used, make sure to check both hubs. Expensive mistake to trust anyone and only check one. Also get bearing buddies, makes maintenance easier.

Go to https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/f...ons-33716.html and you'll find a whole bunch of trailer suggestions. Go down to post #18 and you'll see photos of my raft trailer, which carries my 16' Vanguard with my 15' cat stacked on top of it.

Get a trailer that is the correct size, everything else is replaceable. Mine was listed on Craigslist as a 12'x 7' homemade trailer. In its previous life, it was a pop-up camper. I bought it cheap, bought a new axle, hubs, tires, and lights and added outdoor carpeting to the deck. I couldn't find a more suitable trailer at any price for Supercat.
