SnowBear trailer

Posted by Ron Paro on Oct 18, 2007

Yes theo, that is a SnowBear utility trailer with 12" wheels. With the ends folded down, it has a 5' x 12' bed size. I bolted a boat trailer roller to the end of the rear tailgate, which makes launch & retrieval a one person operation.

The springs are stiff for such a light boat, but I rest the boat on closed-cell foam pads and I lower the pressure in the tires a little to have less bounce. This gives a good solid ride and does very well at highway speeds.

I had planned to buy a boat trailer, but I already had the utility trailer. After seeing how well it worked for me, I decided that I don't need another trailer to take up space and require registration and maintenance.
