What Size Trailer Do I Need For My Trailer Boat
Duralite Trailers Recommends
If you own a trailer boat you need your own custom boat trailer. Many trailer boat owners try to borrow trailers from other people, but this may be unsafe or even illegal. Trailer boats must be moved on a trailer suited for their weight and size or else they become off centered and unbalanced. An unbalanced boat traveling down the highway at 100km hour is not something you want to drive behind. Determine the right size trailer for your boat.
A boat’s weight, length, and width are used for determining the size of boat trailer needed. When determining the weight of your boat, remember to include the weight of the engine, fuel, water, and gear. To get your boat’s length and width, measure from the center line without including extensions such as ladders.
Once you have taken these measurements you will be able to determine what size of boat trailer you need. On many trailers the aspects of the trailer such as winch position, the bunks and or rollors and the axle can be moved to accommodate multiple kinds of watercraft.
