Sportrail trailers

Anybody in the Denver area own one or have any experience with sport trail trailers? Strongly considering one, but the price seems a little high for a no frills flat deck with a roller and winch.... All the gear pile is missing now is a trailer, and I don't want to be left at the ramp rolling or unrolling my raft yet another season.

Pricey yes but I can't weld and don't have the time to fix up an older trailer etc. It works great for its intended purpose which you would expect from something designed to just haul a raft. For me it was easier to pay the extra cost for the convenience of showing up and hauling the trailer off and being ready to run to the river an hour later. I haven't regretted the purchase for a minute and I'm confident that I can sell that trailer anytime in the next 5 years for a few hundred less than what I paid for it. The things tend to hold their value...

I have one and it is solid! I have put several thousand miles on it. Bought it from the hitchin post Trailers and Tractors for Sale, Lake George, Colorado : Hitchin Post - New and Used Trailer Dealer
A buddy of mine uses his commercially and is happy with it as well. Very glad I didn't get a snowmobile trailer. My 2 cents.

I went to Hitchin Post as mentioned above and just purchased a 7x12 low pro sportrailer. It is bomber...wishing I just would have spent the money years ago. The people at the Hitchin Post are great to work with !

I have one that I really like. Just watch the tires. They aren't the best and mine needed replacing after only a couple seasons of moderate use.

Any mechanic can repack your bearings, or you can do it yourself it's not hard. As for tires, for me it depends on where and how I drive. Let's face it we all sometimes drive fast down roads with our trailers bouncing behind us, that kills tires. You don't need a specific brand just a good solid built trailer and how long it last will be up to you. If you take care of it it will last

I have a galvanized one going on its third season and it has been a great trailer. I ended up getting mine in Denver at All American Trailers - | We are The Trailer Pros!
