Multipurpose Trailer Hauls Different Types of Boats

The adjustable design of this trailer lets you tow almost any type of small boat. You can lay the trailer's bunk boards either side to side or front to back, depending on the watercraft you want to carry. And with 8" diameter wheels, this trailer can support boats up to 12' long and up to 800 lbs.


CE48810 side to side

Install the bunk boards so that they are positioned across the trailer's frame to tow your kayak or surfboard. The bunks provide enough cargo space to tow 2 kayaks at once.


CE48810 front to back

Set the trailer's bunks front to back to hold your jon boat, pontoon boat, or inflatable. You can also adjust the tilt of the bunks to contour to your boat's hull when towing a canoe or dinghy.


CE48870 adjustable brackets

This trailer comes with bolster brackets of 2 different heights, so you can choose the brackets that work for your type of boat. Then adjust the swivel brackets to tilt the bunk boards so that they cradle your boat's hull. Finally, the winch stand can be unbolted and moved along the trailer tongue to fit the length of your boat.


Hand Crank Winch

CE48870 winch and stop

If you're towing a jon boat or pontoon, you can use the included hand-crank winch to ease loading and unloading. After installing the included winch stand on the trailer's tongue, mount the winch to the stand.


CE48870 bow roller and y-stop

A bow roller bracket, which can be used with either the included rubber roller or the Y-stop, will keep your boat from hitting the winch stand.


Submersible LED Trailer Lights

CE48810 lights

The DOT-approved tail lights on this trailer are fully submersible, so you don't have to worry about water damaging the lights when you're loading and unloading your boat. Each tail light has brake, running light, and turn signal functions, as well as side marker lights and reflectors. In addition, these lights are comprised of LEDs, which last longer, burn brighter, and require less power than incandescent bulbs.


CE48870 side marker light

Amber side marker lights are included as well. They mount on the trailer's frame to keep the trailer visible from the side.


Marine-Grade Construction

CE48870 construction

The frame and fenders on this trailer are made of galvanized steel, giving them excellent resistance to rust and corrosion, even in saltwater. And the marine-grade carpeting on the bunks resists mold and mildew buildup, keeping the wooden bunks protected and free from rot.


Leaf Spring Suspension

CE48810 suspension

This trailer includes a leaf spring suspension system to limit road shock while you tow. A sturdy steel axle runs beneath the trailer frame. The 2 slipper springs that support the axle flex to absorb the rough motion that can occur when driving over bumpy terrain. Also, the axle, spring hangers, and tie plate are galvanized to resist rust and corrosion.


Trigger-Style Coupler for Easy Hookup

CE48870 coupler

The trailer's trigger-latch-style coupler connects to a 2" hitch ball. The included safety chains act as an emergency measure if the coupler accidentally disconnects from your hitch ball. Finally, the tongue skid on the underside of the trailer tongue keeps the coupler up off the ground when it's not coupled.

I’m very pleased with the Smith boat trailer.It is well made and rugged . It also was easy to assemble . I have been building a sailboat on the trailer so even though I’ve had the trailer for a year it hasn’t gone on the road yet but I feel confident it will go well. My boat is 13’ long and so is longer than they recommend for the trailer but it only weighs 350lbs is well within the weight limit, but you definitely don’t want a longer boat than that on this trailer.The one thing I think would make this trailer much superior is if it had stainless steel hardware . The Galvanize is very well done but the hardware is just Galvanize plated .I will only use it in fresh water but I don’t think it would do well for saltwater use . For the price it is certainly a great value.


Comments
It has been another year with the trailer and it is holding up well. It toes very well and even though I had reservations about the hardware , it still hasn’t started to rust . I’m very happy with my purchase.

The trailer is wonderful. It met my needs for towing a RIB dinghy for our sailboat. The dinghy is 11 feet long with a 20 HP outboard. We received three boxes that were pretty banged up - no fault of etrailer or CE Smith but the boxes came about 2 weeks before the estimated due date. I was impressed and psyched to get it that fast. The trailer was well packed and the entire shipment came without any hassles.

We were short one lock nut but I had enough 3/8" nylon lock nuts around to easily deal with the loss. Now, here is where etrailer shines. I contacted them just to alert them of the missing part and they jumped on it right away. There are few online companies that are good with customer service. To the best of my knowlege there are even fewer with GREAT customer service. etrailer is one with great customer service. I enjoy working with them and find every product they sell is top notch.

Here are a few pics that show me slowly assembling the trailer.

For those who are interested in time estimates:
Collect necessary tools - 15 mins + 1 beer
Assembly - 2 hours + 2x 1 Liter Nalgene water
Test drive - 10 mins on highway after beer and water out of my system

All told, if you are handy and read the instructions (carefully) before trying to assemble it, I think you can easily come under the 3 hour mark. Take your time reading the instructions.

This trailer is beefy. I had a 14 foot sailboat that weighed 1700 lbs and that trailer was hardly sturdier than this beast. For our new dinghy (Highfield 340), this trailer is perfect.

I have just finished putting my 12ft boat trailer together, it took me 3 days to do it. Considering I have a bad back and I'm 79 years old and doing it by myself. I'm not what you might call a handy man but with the video and the instructions I was able to finish it. All the people I had talked to at etrailer before and after I bought the trailer were great they all seam to go out of there way to answer all my questions and even called me back to give me the answer if they could not answer it on the phone. I would have given them 5 stars except for the fact that the manufacturer sent me the pink slip in one of the boxes and it had ripped at the bottom of the slip,then I had to send it back to etrailer for them to sign off on it and then have them mail it back to me. So I'm unable to get my license plate until it's sent back to me. I would recommend buying a trailer from them.



by:

Bought this trailer to hold my inflatable from Costco. Fits perfectly and is very nice. Works great and is not too heavy. A great addition to it would be some tie down hooks attached.



by:

The trailer I purchased is exactly what i needed and it works great on my 10 ft. bass hunter boat. I would recommend anyone wishing to purchase a trailer to look into what etrailer has to offer on your needs.



by:

Very, very happy with my trailer. Great price, fairly easy to assemble (took me maybe 4 hours). Exactly what I was looking for!



by:

I am still waiting for the trailer. Two of the five packages were received and I understand the last three packages will be delivered the end of this week. I would like to recognize Nick, your service representative. Nick was the 3rd representative I spoke with the first lady, failing to complete my order, I understand the call was disconnected. I then spoke with Gwen who completed the order but said the trailer was back ordered and I would not receive it until mid June? I was trying to review the parts that were available and being shipped and the call was abruptly ended. I called back to review the order and shipping dates and was lucky to connect with Nick. Nick has been excellent. He called the supplier the next business day (Monday) and called me that same day with an update. Nick confirmed the supplier will ship the trailer direct to me later this week, great news for me. Nick made himself available, answered my questions, confirmed packages to be shipped and when so I could plan for the time needed to assemble the trailer and customize it with the other packages for my inflatable pontoon. Thank you Nick! Looking forward to receiving the last three packages in a couple of days.


Comments
Its a solid trailer for my inflatable pontoon and easy to store upright in my garage. Thank you again for this quality product!

I ordered the trailer to avoid putting my 8 foot Walker Bay on top of my truck - gettin' old. It wasn't too difficult to assemble although I had to get a missing package of hardware re-shipped. I suspect that it was lost in shipment as the outer carton had a tear in it.


Comments
Not a lot of use as lake fishing here only lasts through April but the trailer is in great shape. Had a little trouble trying to find bearing buddies to fit the hubs but called etrailer.com and got the correct size and ordered from them!

I bought this for a 10 foot inflatable I got for the grandkids to use when we went camping. With the bunks placed at their greatest distance apart it fits the boat perfectly and holds it securely. The trailer went together easily and quickly on my garage floor and was a fun project. It’s a sturdy well engineered product that tows equally well behind my Mazda CX-5 or my Mercedes Sprinter van. I couldn’t be more satisfied. Add to that the great price and what’s not to like?



by:

Bought this kit to haul an 11-foot inflatable boat. Overall nice trailer for the price. Took me about 5 hours to assemble and adjust to fit my boat. Frame made well and like that bunks and bow/winch support are customizable. Have used it a couple times on side roads and highways - travels well but with only 225 pounds of boat and motor on top of a 200 pound trailer it does bounce easily. One thing to know is that I also bought a pair of guide-ons that were tough to mount to this trailer because there isn't much space left on the frame around the wheels to attach it. Only other minor concern is that the license plate holder is only made of plastic and sticks down low to the ground so I am afraid it could break off on road or at the boat ramp.

Good purchase, good instruction and dur able.



by:

I purchased the Smith Multi-Sport Trailer (Model 48810). The package arrived promptly, complete and well packed, and the instructions were very clear. I ran into two small problems during assembly and the folks at Smith responded immediately with replacement parts with no cost and no hassle. I completed the assembly and now I am using it to move a 12' wooden skiff at the beach. The trailer is well-built with quality materials and looks like it will last forever.



by:

I purchased this trailer in order to haul an unfinished 12 foot Kit Boat from the fifties.
I found it easy to assemble, made of quality materials and exactly what I needed for the task.
I drove it almost 2000 miles to its new home in Wisconsin and encountered no problems whatsoever. It tracked well and handled well even during strong side winds.
That's why I gave it 5 stars.



by:

good quality



by:

Awesome trailer! Had a bum tire when trailer arrived though (damaged during factory mounting - small slice in side wall). I contacted etrailer.com and they shipped me a new tire with wheel No questions asked.

Trailer took 4 hours to assemble but im very happy with the design and quality! Was going to get a cheaper trailer but im glad I went with the ce smith 48810. I ordered trailer guides which are great - highly recommend them with this trailer.



by:

etrailer.com is a company I'd recommend to deal with. Self-assembly of the product is fairly easy due to detailed instructions. Delivery was done perfectly in time.

Product seems good......parts were missing in initial shipment relating to trailer tung, tail light lenses was broken in initial shipment, paperwork to license trailer was omitted in original shipment.



by:

I really enjoy my trailer. Smooth drive on the highway. Also etrailer was most reasonable price compare to other competitors. Thanks



by:

The trailer got to my home very fast, surprisingly fast. I put it together in about 7 hours. I'm old, fat, and out of shape, well i'm shaped round but that's not the shape I should be in. Anyway, it wasn't complicated but fairly easy to build. It would have been much faster if I had a partner to help me out. All was great until I went to register it. Well it seemed that the MCO wasn't endorsed. So I called etrailer and they were very attentive and helpful. They asked me to send the MCO to them and they would endorse it and send it right back. I sent it and received it back in a couple weeks. All in all that was good. So now thanks to the Virus I have to make another appointment and get another appointment date...I'll keep you posted!

I do recommend this trailer and this company and I hope that in the future this potential issue gets resolved.



by:

Perfect size for my 12 foot rowboat. Clear assembly instructions with no missing parts. Used many times this year with no problems and remain satisfied with my purchase



by:

Great trailer for my SunDolphin 120 Pro. Went together well, takes some time, but well worth it. Just be sure to take the time and make sure it's fitted to your boat - it's also worth it.



by:

I give your product a five star rating. It's just like baking a cake. If you can follow the directions everything will turn out just right.
I like how every group of components had it's own bag of hardware to assemble it.
I wouldn't change a thing. I would recommend this product to a friend.



by:

This trailer will be great for my 12' jon boat. Very sturdy. Best price I found. Fast shipping. Great company to deal with. Great quality products.
