Which Boat Trailer Is Right For You?

Boat TrailerA boat trailer allows you to transport your boat with ease to and from various waterways of your choice. Simply hook the trailer tongue to your vehicle hitch and you are on your way. Boat trailers are commonly constructed of aluminum or galvanized steel. Both are rust resistant; however, to extend the life of your trailer and to prevent decay and or corrosion, be sure to hose off your boat trailer after each use. It's a great idea to perform regular maintenance to wheel bearings, lights, paint, rollers, bunks and general cleaning at least once every three or four trips.

There are two basic types of boat trailers, which are bunk and roller. Bunk boat trailers have a float on float off configuration, which makes this particular trailer ideal for boaters unloading into deeper waters and is favored by aluminum boat owners. One the other hand, roller boat trailers have a drive on drive off configuration used primarily by boaters loading and unloading in shallow water.

Boat trailers have single, double, or triple axles depending on the size and weight of the boat being hauled. In addition, some boat trailers have breaking systems while others do not depending on the size boat the trailer is designed to haul.

You can select from quite a range of optional features when you purchase a boat trailer, including a toolbox, radial tires, decorative wheels, adjustable keel support rollers, dual light system, and inboard propeller guides.

By law, all boat trailers must have working lights and be registered with your state of residence. Registration fees and laws vary per state, so you should consult your local Department of Motor Vehicles for specifics about your state licensing laws.
