Sawtooth raft trailer

Anyone have recommendations for raft trailers in Mt or ID? I see that Montana Raft frames has trailers, but they start off at 2,700 dollars... I came across Sawtooth welding in Idaho and trailers start off at a very reasonable 1,250.

Anyone out there own one of the trailers? If so, would you recommend them?

I see that the offer a powder coating option for $350, is it worth the investment?

I've had one for about 5 years, love it. I have the storage trailer, not the 1200 one. Build quality is solid.

i have the deck over version. like it so far after almost a year of use. i'd say do the powder coat and skip the winch, if you were considering that feature.

Well that's pretty disappointing. Trailers were reasonable priced. Anyone know where to get a good basic fact traker under 2k near Montana or Idaho?

I'm pretty sure C&B in Caldwell still make a raft trailer. I have several of their other types of trailers and have been very happy. Double R built mine a few years ago for 1600 but I'm pretty sure they only do enclosed trailers now.
