Post a Pic of your...trailer?

Hey ya'll,

Glad to see that the "Post a Pic of your Trailer" thread is taking off. I've always had a weird fetish for trailers since I was a young lad (I attribute it to many cool HotWheels and MatchBox toys).

I also think it's a good place for all of us to see what cool mods that like-minded buddies have done to their boat haulers.

Kudos!

Ringo, sorry for the late reply, I just noticed your post/question.

The tires are 8" x 18.5". Basically they're just like golf cart tires with a much greater load capacity; 940lbs. I think they're a heck of a lot better than the skinny 8" Harbor Freight ones, but I would prefer a full-size car tire; 13"-16".

I think my trailer has enough room under the fenders for larger tires, but these are solid and I have other "boat projects". Maybe they'll get changed out when I restore/rebuild the trailer in a few years.

I picked up this trailer late fall/early winter. The 13" tires had dry rot so I put new tires on it. The bunks need new covering and the winch mount (welded to the tongue) was too far back for my new boat project so I ground it off and welded it on farther forward. So I've got some work to do on it before the new paint, but I thought it was a pretty good deal for $60.

JMichael - Not a bad deal for $60, I definitely seen a lot of people do a lot worse for a lot more. It's good do get a solid trailer to start with and customize from there.

Is there any way we can make this a "sticky" since the majority seems to want to see your trailer pics?

(And I don't have to keep shamelessly bumping it to keep in up top.) :mrgreen:

Found the forum after I tore down the trailer. New guides out of 3/4 rigid conduit, will throw some PVC on it and mount my lights on top. Paint, New bunks and new Tongue. Tongue that was on it was bent and a bit short. This forum has saved me a couple of humbling phone calls to my Dad. Thanks

This is the trailer that came with my 12' northwood boat. Not sure of the year or make, but it gets the job done.
Had to add lights, new bunks, and a new winch. I will probably also be doing the bearings soon.

I added the guides shortly after buying it, and can't believe I have never had guides on a trailer before.

Here are the before pics. It's an aluminum slide on that I snagged on CL for $600
Image
When I removed the wood bunks, I discovered some severe pitting underneath.
Image
nother shot
Image
After dissassembly and sandblasting, this is where I am.
Image
I mixed up some epoxy and started filling those pits. The left corner is gone here.
Image
After everything sets up, Ill go over it with a belt sander.

More pitting :(

Hows this for a trailer :shock:

Picked the boat up from a retired Gentlemen. It was grungy and highly oxidized and was sitting on the ground chained to a tree in his front yard with a "For Sale " sign on it.. I was going to get it if the price was right,so I had pulled the jon boat trailer up there. After agreeing to a price, He said, "well come on down here, the trailer for it is in the woods".
It was so over grown with weeds and honey suckle that I literally had to pull it out with the jeep. I really didn't want it but I thought I could get some money for the scrap metal. Turned out that other than surface rust,it wasn't in that bad of shape. The bearings, spindles, leaf springs and axle were great shape. So its been a work in progress since
