    Raft trailer

    Last weeks project that didn't get finished until today is a raft trailer for a fly fishing guide. It can also carry a couple kayaks on top. The only difference from a regular trailer is the roller that goes all across the back so the raft doesn't crimp over the edge when loading.

    Looks good. I see a few similar to that around here, shasta and trinity county, for both river rafts and drift boats. Rare to see the roller tho. Would probably work well with the drift boats too.

    Did you put bearings on that or is the roller pipe over pipe. I hope that raft is short for some tongue weight. Looks good.

    The roller is on bearings but I doubt it needs them, no high speed rotation here.

    Something I usually add on most trailers I've ever built and put on this one is container for extra bearings and extra grease. It seems to always be appreciated.
