Which trailer will work?

Postby indyillini » Mon Jul 21, 2014 8:19 am

I am building the overniter with specs:
Characteristics
Length overall 15'-11"
Beam 6'-10"
Hull depth 3'-6"
Average passengers 1-3
Hull weight (approx.) 650 lbs.
Headroom under deck 3'-0"
1990 Evinrude 70HP outboard

I have a local LoadRite trailer dealer with the following two options:

16F1200W-14 to 16 ft, 1200 lb carrying cap.
62 in wide, 4.80 x 12 tires, fully adjustable
poly fenders, good trailer for v hulls, inflatable,
or flat bottom. $649

or

16150076DW 14 to 16 ft, 1500 lb carrying cap. 76 in
wide model with 3 x 3 tongue, 4.80 x 12 tires, fuller
frame, fully adjustable, a tongue jack included. $939.00


Will the first trailer work or is the width too small? I have been looking on craigslist and ebay, but there are not a lot of trailer for sale in the midwest. Thanks for the help.

Hate to say it. But, I think trailer 2 is the better choice. Hull weight is the weight when you turn the hull. You're adding the upper structure, engine, gear, water, fuel and ice chest and drinks to the trailering weight.

I agree trailer number 2 sounds better and it seems like decent prices for new.
