Raft trailer

Hello,
Looking for some advise on trailer size for a Aire 143 D raft. Will a 7' x 12' flat bed trailer work?
Thanks.

I have a 143R that I carry on a 7x12 plus I built racks to carry a Jag on top.

Would you mind letting us know how much that trailer cost? It looks freaking beautiful.

But why no roller across the back for a whitewater trailer?

ditto that thought, really nice. where did you buy it, do they keep them in stock or was it a special order? C & B's website says they only sell to dealerships.

I bought it from Terry's Truck and RV in Mountain Home, ID. It's not cheap. I paid $2450 including tax, spare tire, etc. But when I ordered, he said the price was going up soon due to the price of aluminum. I got the impression they don't sell very many. C&B made the trailer after I placed my order. It took 2 or 3 weeks to get it. It's a really nice trailer. The tongue is long enough to put a motorcycle rack on it. It has a 3500lb axle. It has neat lights all over. I've put over 2000 miles on it since I got it mid-march and it's been great. It came with mud flaps, they already fell off, but other than that, it's my favorite new boating toy.

I had a roller on my last trailer. They are nice, for the first boat. I have two 12.5' sotar cats. They are easy to just lift on the trailer, so I don't really miss the roller. But I probably would if I had a heavier raft.

I've found that you can do a 14 foot raft on a 10 foot long trailer. It extends off the back a bit, but it works great, and it keeps the trailer a little lighter and more compact. and cheaper.

Thanks,
