Are you looking for boat trailers for sale for your small boat? You are in the right place because we will give you some tips on how to buy the trailer that your small boat needs. Make sure you take note of the type of boat you have, its measurements, its weight, and the general characteristics of the trailer you are looking for.

The design of your boat

You should know that not all trailers fit all crafts. Take into account the type of engine and the hull design of your boat since there are trailers designed for certain types of designs.

Measurements and weight

Take note of the measurements and weight of your boat. In other words, make sure the trailer is wide enough and long enough for your boat. For this you can measure the transom  to Bow Eye length and also the bottom width.

The same applies to the so-called carrying capacity. That is, the trailer must have the capacity to carry, in addition to the weight of the boat, the weight of the boat’s fuel, the weight of the engine and other items.

Trailer types

But you should not only look at the design, measurements and weight to buy your trailer. You should know that there are at least two types of trailer: the single axle trailer that has one set of one wheel on each side and the dual axle trailer that has two sets of wheels on each side. Knowing which of these types of trailer you want can also be helpful.

Remember that it’s not just a matter of taste but of load capacity. The single axle trailer is designed for boats weighing around 2,800 pounds while the dual axle trailer is ideal for heavier boats: between 5,000 pounds to 10,000 pounds.

Taking note of these technical aspects can help you a lot when looking for the right trailer for your small boat. We also recommend you to quote several designs according to your needs. Do not hesitate to contact the Bad 2D Bone trailers team to receive all the advice you require.
