We purchased this trailer for our yacht club kayaking group. The trailer is very well designed and easy to assemble. It is extremely light and can be moved by hand with ease. I would rate it five stars with the exception of how it arrived. Upon initial inspection a bag of hardware needed for assembly, the axle bolts and plates, as well as the vertical support plates were missing and took a week to receive. When attaching the springs it was discovered the bolts and bushings to mount the front of the springs were missing. Trailex was very cooperative in sending what was needed, but the lack of detail in packing stretched the assembly process out to two weeks. We had reservations about buying from this vendor based on reviews that the documents were not received on time. Our concerns were realized when it took three weeks to receive the MSO and it was only received after making several calls and finally having the document express shipped. Between the waiting for parts and documentation the trailer sat on the garage floor or in the driveway for over three weeks before it could be licensed and available for use by the club.
Give the product a 5. Straightforward assembly, half-day job. I have 2 triple kayaks, both around 21 feet long, and a single. It's tough to find a trailer with enough length. This trailer does the trick. I've used it at freeway speeds for long trips, rides great. Works well to wet launch kayaks at boat ramps (I left the middle cross bars off so kayaks could release into the water without binding on middle rack). No more manhandling beasts off the top of my car. For boat ramp launches, can pack the boat on the trailer with lighter items in advance, can also load packed boats back on the trailer post trip. Can load boats solo. Can pick up the tongue easily and move the trailer with both boats around on flats, in and out of garage, etc. The rubber padding on the crossbars and posts is excellent, boats can be braced into the crossbar, upright, saddles not necessary. The trailer rides pretty low, so for my long boats, I would not ride with them inverted on the lowest crossbar (traditionally larger kayaks are transported upright on saddles) because the rudder on the doubles would be close to the ground, could scrape. Not sure about a large canoe with the highly upturned prow (traditionally transported inverted) could have clearance issue on lowest crossbar? I leave the boats stored on the trailer in the garage. Overall, fantastic rig. Give the service a 2. As per other review, plan ahead, I was frustrated by the slow arrival of the title, it's mailed separately. The quick shipping on the trailer was amazing, but doesn't help if the title paperwork for registration comes 10 days later. I assumed all would ship together. So heads up if you're trying to hit a date.
