Works great for what I need. Fairly straight-forward assembly. The only negative comment I have is that the tail lights are EXTREMELY cheap (but will do the job, and upgrades are inexpensive). All in all, great product.

Not hard to assemble, light to move around, easy to make changes to in the future, or partially disassemble for storage. I like the appearance. Don't know what else to say, It's a trailer.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Need a trailet for a TI and will be transporting it 600 mi one way to the ocean. I feel like I need a fairly heavy duty trailer. One with larger wheels and perhaps better suspension than this one. What are your thoughts regarding a heavier duty trailer with larger wheels for this type of travel? Do you have any trailers with larger wheels. Can this trailer be provided with larger wheels as an option? What are your thoughts on the wheel bearings considering the long trips to be taken with the boat and trailer?
A: This is actually a heavier duty trailer than most and already has bigger, 8 inch wheels and larger tires than the usual 6 inch diameter wheel. Malone trailers have the option to choose upto a 12 inch tire and have a similar construction, however do not have a Tandem Island specific trailer. This particular trailer is extremely heavy duty, is rated for posted highway speeds and has a full manufacturer's warranty if any issues arise.

Q: Can I replace the wheels with a larger diameter (perhaps 12" - 16") pair? My concern: the smaller diameter wheels would hop/bounce more easily, especially since here are no shocks on the springs and the Hobie AI itself is very light.
A: Yes, as long as it does not interfere with the wheel well.
