CE Smith Trailer

CE Smith's multi-sport trailer gives you the freedom to haul your small boat, inflatable, raft, canoe, kayak or PWC. It can support a watercraft that is up to 12 feet long and that weighs up to 800 pounds. This versatile trailer includes everything you need to easily - and safely - get your boat to the water, whether it's the local lake or your favorite fishing or boating destination. The boat trailer requires only basic hand tools to assemble and includes all hardware, brackets, wiring, and licensing and registration paperwork.

CE Smith Trailer Lights

Built to last, this trailer features galvanized steel construction that resists rust and corrosion and withstands brackish and saltwater environments, so it is ideal for outdoor use. The Department of Transportation-approved brake, tail and turn signal lights are completely submersible, and the carpeted bunk boards resist mildew. You can back the trailer into the water to load and unload your boat without damaging any of the trailer's components.

CE Smith Trailer Bunks

Two 5-foot-long bunk boards - covered with marine-grade black carpeting - support your boat's hull and minimize scratches. Four short bolster brackets and four long bolster brackets allow you to mount the boards at different positions along the frame and at varying heights. Four swivel brackets enable the boards to tilt at the proper angle to accommodate your boat's hull. You can run the bunk boards front to back for traditionally shaped hulls or side to side for flat-bottom boats, kayaks and inflatables.

CE Smith Trailer Winches

A hand-crank winch, complete with stand and winch strap, lets you load and unload your boat with ease. Also included are a bow roller and a Y-stop, allowing you to choose the best way to prevent your boat's bow from making contact with the winch.

CE Smith Trailer Suspension

The sturdy axle and complete suspension, composed of 2-leaf slipper springs, support a payload up to 800 lbs.

CE Smith Trailer Tires/Wheels

The trailer comes with two 8-inch, galvanized tire-and-wheel assemblies. Pre-galvanized steel fenders cover the tires and act as splash guards, keeping road debris from hitting other vehicles and helping to protect your trailer's cargo.

You can upgrade the trailer to 12-inch wheels, but you will have to replace the fenders with larger ones (CE17701G - sold separately), which will easily bolt to the existing fender brackets.

CE Smith Trailer Coupler/Chains/Skid

The trailer features a channel-tongue, trigger-latch-style coupler that connects to a 2-inch ball. A set of safety chains acts as a safety measure should your trailer come unhooked during transport. And the included tongue skid keeps the trailer's coupler from touching the ground when it's not hitched up to your tow vehicle.

Purchased a C.E. Smith sports utility trailer. Perfect transaction. Best price on the internet. Website made it easy to complete the order. Shipping was free and the trailer was delivered to my home is two days. Outstanding in every way. 484902

- CE48810

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. 502455

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. 198324

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. 497285

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. 505803


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

Looks well manufactured and solid . I have yet to put it all together, I am extremely pleased with it so far . Shipping was fast from manufacturer although one box was torn on corners ....... all parts appear to be there. 395960

- CE48810

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. 358112


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 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. 518438

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Trailers
Do you have a question about this Trailer?

  • Are Roller Bunks or Keel Rollers Needed on the CE Smith Boat Trailer Part # CE48810
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810 comes with guide ons which help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport so I don't really recommend adding anything additional in regards to this aspect because of the size of the boat. However, if you will be launching your boat at night or in the early mornings I recommend using the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights part # CE27740 which will provide visual targets. What I do recommend using is a two...

  • Recommended Upgrades to CE Smith Boat Trailer Model 48810
  • Upgrading the carpeted bunks on your CE Smith Boat Trailer to roller bunks like the CE Smith # CE27710 is a great way to upgrade the trailer. These will allow for much easier loading and launching of your boat and reduce the stress put on your hand winch during operation. These are 5 foot long bunks that will work perfectly to replace the 5 foot bunk boards on the trailer. You can use the Bunk Brackets # CE10003G-4 to mount them to the trailer. It looks like the trailer is equipped with...

  • How to Carry a Kayak and a Canoe with a 2016 Ram 1500
  • We have a couple of different options for you to haul a kayak and canoe with your 2016 Dodge Ram. One way to haul your kayak and canoe is with a truck bed ladder rack. I recommend going with the TracRac TracONE Ladder Rack # TA27000XTB. This is rated for 800 lbs so you can use it for more than just hauling your kayak and canoe. It is made of aluminum so it is strong and rustproof but also lightweight. You will need to use pads, like the Thule Surf Pad # TH804, to load your kayaks on...

  • Can CE Smith Boat Trailer be Used with a Porta-Bote
  • You probably would not have to modify CE Smith boat trailer # CE48810 to use it with your Porta Bote. The boat would just have to be properly secured to the trailer. The trailer can support boat up to 12 feet long and up to 800 pounds. For straps I recommend a transom tie down such as # IMF17631. Other useful straps you can use include # EM34423 which you can bolt directly to the trailer frame. Other than that I do not foresee any modifications being necessary.

  • Bunk Boards Needed to Carry Kayaks on Boat Trailer
  • You can actually purchase the carpeted bunk boards and the brackets that hold them, like what is on the CE Boat Trailer # CE48810, separately. This way you can add more to your trailer if you have the room for it. The Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 can be installed on your boat trailer using the CE Smith U-Bolts # CE15283GA-4. These U-Bolts are 3-13/16" long, 3-1/16" wide, and have a 1/2" diameter. For bunk boards we have a couple of different length options for...

  • Tire and Fender Upgrade on CE Smith Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810
  • According to my contact at CE Smith their Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810 can indeed take 12-inch wheels, with only new fenders required as you noted. I have linked our main page for tire/wheel combinations in the 12-inch size and with the 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern used for the CE Smith trailer. For a galvanized wheel-with-tire in Load Range B you can use part # AM30590. Please note that all trailer tires in this size are rated to speeds up to 65-mph maximum. We do not offer...

  • CE Smith Trailer Compatibility and Conversion For Crossbars
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs up to 12' Long - 800 lbs # CE48810 will allow the winch stand with the winch and bow stop to be adjusted front to back to allow for proper fit and tongue weight. I've attached the installation instructions to assist as well as a video. The bunk boards can be removed if desired and you can use the Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475 to give you crossbars.

  • How to Move Boat From CE Smith Boat Trailer Without Boat Ramp
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810 is a great choice to transport your Sun Dolphin Pro and using a trailer dolly will absolutely work for you. You could use the MaxxTow # MT70881 if you wanted as the tongue weight of your trailer will keep it on the smaller hitch ball of that dolly. However, I do think there is another option that would be better for you. I recommend the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211. It will act as a jack so you can unhook your CE Smith...

  • Max Speed Rating for the CE Smith Boat Trailer CE48810
  • Since you are looking for a way to transport a kayak a much better solution for you would be a Yakima Rack and Roll trailer like part # Y08106 as this is rated for highway speeds. As always, exceeding posted speed limits is not recommended, especially when towing. The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810 that you referenced uses 4.80/4.00-8 sized tires that are rated for 65 miles per hour like most trailer tires.

  • Tire Capacity of CE Smith # CE48810 Boat/PWC Trailer And Trailer Connector Compatibility
  • The CE Smith # CE48810 Boat/PWC Trailer you referenced is compatible with the 4-pole vehicle side trailer connector pictured in the photo you provided. Each of the 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range B tires are rated at 590 lbs, for two tires the capacity would be 1180 lbs. You wouldn't need to upgrade the tires as they already meet the trailer capacity. Keep in mind, even though the tire capacity is greater than the capacity of the trailer, you'll still need to abide by the 800 lb capacity of the...

  • Bearing Buddy For CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs
  • The Bearing Buddy you would need for this trailer are part # BB1980A. These fit hub bores that measure 1.98 inches, which is the size of the hub bore on the # CE48810. I have attached a link to a product review video for the Bearing Buddy you can take a look at. The CE Smith Boat Trailer, part # CE48810, can hold a small boat or a watercraft up to 12 ft long and weighing up to 800 lbs.

  • Will CE Smith Boat Trailer Work For Achilles SGX-132 Boat?
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs up to 12' Long - 800 lbs # CE48810 will be able to tow the Achilles SGX-132 Aluminum bottom because it won't require the space allotted at the front of the trailer for a solid bow. The flexibility will work to your advantage. We have had other customers do similar fits and even have a customer photo of a similar fit posted to that page.

I am including a link to the installation instructions that will show good color pictures of the trailer with the bunks in the perpendicular position.

  • Does CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810 Come Assembled
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810 does come as a kit and would need to be assembled. This trailer is designed for boats and PWCs up to 12 ft long, and has a weight capacity of 800 lbs. This would not be a tough task to assemble if you have someone close that has mechanical skills. We are located just west of St Louis Missouri in Wentzville.
