What is the length of a Series 3800 Trailer

Postby BRP27 » Sun Jun 28, 2015 6:23 am

The Series 3800 trailer is what is recommended for a Monaco build. But before I commit to a 3800 I need to make sure it will go in the garage. So that is the reason for the question. The garage is 12ft wide 28ft 2inches long. I searched the forum and could not find the length of the trailer.
Thanks Gary

I'm not sure what the overall length is but I'm sure someone will be able to chime in with the information. I have one thought though. If its close to being too long I would think it would be easy to modify the tongue of the trailer so that it could fold up for storage purposes. I don’t see that being a difficult modification for anyone with the fabrication skills to build the trailer in the first place. Just my two cents.

Oooh... good point; I didn't think about the trailer! Think i'll have to put a big cat flap in my garage door for the hitch if I stretch the Overniter. :lol:

Planning a whole fleet, but starting with a Zip...I think.

Problem solved
With the garage being 28.167ft and a Monaco being no longer than 21.2ft with the 10% extension , that leaves almost 7 ft for a trailer tongue and overhang on the stern. Most trailer tongues are 4-5ft, so it will fit with no problem as long as I watch overall boat and trailer rig overall length. The width is not an issue since the beam on a Monaco is only 6ft 7in and the garage is 12ft at the door.

I had a boat in the past that required the garage door to be left open, it was dumb to have boat bigger than the garage. That's why I built this garage wider and longer.

Thanks for the Tongue folding option and the Cat door option
