RMR, Hyside, NRS, Sawyer, K2 coolers, Whitewater Worthy Trailers, Frames and soft goods
My mind is constantly blown by the trailers I see. Nowhere near road worthy, let alone Idaho backroad worthy. Can’t imagine towing stacked rafts and gear on a single axel pizza cutter tired contraption that looks like it came from a Red Green yard sale.
A buddy who tried to pass off a POS as a road ready raft trailer was greeted, at the takeout, with a bill for a properly sized spare, two new wheel bearings, welding repairs, labor, and a service charge. He was pissed at the cost. I told him he was lucky they towed it out of Corn to begin with.
I’m surprised more Idaho rafters don’t get double axels. Especially the ones guys spend a ton to have custom made.
Yep, Nice things cost money and require maintenance to keep them working correctly. If it turns it will ware out. It's best to start with something that is designed for the job and inspect the moving parts frequently enough to spot a problem before they grenade your gear and possible your trip.
But what do I know, I'm just a trailer manufacture and there are a lot of people out there that claim to be much smarter and believe that I charge too much. How many times has your, broke ass trailer, been towed out on someone else's and it caused a hazard for the rest of the people on the river????
Ours can be built with tandem axles, but it does make them even more expensive.
