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 12" diameter wheels and an 86" long trailer tongue, this trailer can support boats up to 14' long and up to 800 lbs.

CE48870 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.

CE48870 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. A bow roller bracket, complete with rubber roller, is also included to keep your boat from hitting the winch stand.

Plug-and-Play Trailer Wiring

CE48870 main harness to 4-way

The wiring for this trailer has a simple plug-and-play design, so it doesn't require any cutting or splicing to install. As you assemble the trailer, route the main wiring harness through the trailer tongue and down towards the body of the trailer. Then plug the 4-wire end of the tail light harness into the main harness.

CE48870 4-way plug

Run the wires of the tail light harness along the sides of the trailer frame and plug the individual wires into the matching wires on the side marker lights and the tail lights. The wires are color-coded so that you can easily match them up - no circuit tester is required. Once all of the wires are plugged in, use the included clips to secure the harness to the frame.

CE48870 4-way plug

When you're ready to connect the trailer to your vehicle, simply plug the trailer end of the main harness into the 4-way flat connector on your vehicle.

Submersible LED Trailer Lights

CE48870 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

CE48870 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 on top of 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.

Trailer is high quality and exactly as advertised. Easy to assemble, parts fit well together. Packaging / shipping was not very good, multiple boxes were torn open. Luckily no parts were missing. I would consider buying from etrailer again.



Very well. Have had no problems with the trailer at all. Makes going kayaking much easier.


I think it's a really nice trailer. Price is fair too. Assembly wasn't too difficult. One of the tounge pieces need to be crimped down with a vise on each side to fit in the main channel. Contacted customer service with a few questions. They got back to me right away. Was missing some hardware and they shipped this to me in a couple of days. The bunk setup was the hardest part to figure out. The old town needs the bunks low and close together as my photos show. Also, I had to drill and add (4) 1/4"dia bolts to keep the bunks from rotating. It handles very nice on the road. I would recommend this

Went together well,hardware correct I’m very satisfied with this trailer and service



Very well built durable trailer handles great at 55 mph good investment Thanks


Took about 5hrs to assemble with no help .Very easy step by step far very pleased time will tell.


Straightforward instructions. Excellent quality. Tows nicely behind our SUV. Speedy service and delivery on our order. Very pleased.


Easy to assemble, performs Great.


Great boat and kayak trailer


I don't understand why this product came without sealed ball bearings? Is there a way to fix this ?

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


The hubs included with the axle should be pre-installed with the bearings, grease, and grease caps. They come with the typical bearings that a trailer would come with. If they were not, then we are happy to take care of that for you. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


This is one of the best projects I have ever done, the instuction book was very detailed and everything went togather perfectly It was shipped fast I watched the utube video and was pleasently surprised how detailed it was in describing how to assemble this trailer, Thank you for a great product


Excellent trailer and easy to assemble


Weak wench bent on first use, it had to be modified right tail lamp does not work have to replace
Should have bought local !


Great little Kayak trailer. Easy assembly and everything fit perfectly.


Shipping was surprisingly fast. Service from eTrailer was great.

Trailer went together really well except for one small item. Everything lined up. No issues. Instructions were easy plus eTrailer has a video online going over the build.

My one problem was that the bolts/nuts for the flairs were not right. This trailer is held together by a number of bolts and nylock nuts but the fender bolts/nuts would not tighten. Something between them was off. A quick trip to Lowe's for new hardware fixed that.

Very pleased.


I’m really impressed with my experience ordering this trailer from etrailer. Everything arrived as expected, packed very well with hardware organized into separate bags for the various subassemblies and a very good set of instructions were also provided. I really took my time to ensure the assembly was correct and to enjoy the process. The only minor issue I ran into was that the light bracket orientation didn’t match the manual pictures. I reversed the orientation and they worked fine. Another plus is that etrailer sent me all the paperwork I needed to register the trailer. My experience was so good that I would happily order from etrailer again.


I been using my trailer now for two years to transport my fishing kayaks. It’s a very sturdy trailer and I haven’t a single complaint! The lights are bright. The trailer is light enough I can move it by hand. Perfect for my needs.


Great product, excellent packaging, simple instructions and illustrations. This will work well for my Sears 13’ Jon boat.
I would recommend this trailer for anyone with a low weight personal watercraft. A shout out to Paul in customer service for answering my question on registration/title info. They mail it to you separately, immediately, insuring that it doesn’t get lost in all that hardware.


great little trailer, went together with no problems. we had an extension made for ours to handle a 18'
foot canoe to avoid excess overhang


First, I received the trailer kit, in four boxes, ahead of schedule. Building the trailer is pretty much as easy as the video demonstrates. There are not many parts but there are a lot of bolts and compression nuts. I took about five hours to build the trailer using manual tools other than an electric drill for the bunk screws. That includes time to correct a couple of mistakes (not following the directions).

The lighting connected to my SUV's wiring harness and all lights work exactly as expected.

I have an Old Town Sportsman kayak that is 110 lbs empty and it is 13 1/2 feet long. I centered the weight toward the front bunker so about 54 inches extends beyond the back of the trailer. I could have moved it forward but opted to keep a lighter tongue weight.

Because of the kayak's weight, this trailer is so much easier than trying to haul the kayak on the top of my SUV. I plan to transport the kayak between Wisconsin and Florida, plus any place there is a boat launch and fish.

Thank you, and Noah, for making my life so much easier. This is money well spent!


Website was easy to use shipping was super fast The tracking was nothing short of amazing and the quality of the trailer I have no complaints. I did Make a custom bracket and move the front bunk board closer to the front, personal preference only.


Trailer is working great! It was easy assembling it w/ my young son. We painted it black. Wheel bearings seems to be holding well against salt water contamination.


So far so good. Easy to follow instructions (about a six pack job). Tracks very well and the suspension is very good for rough back roads at high speed (the main reason I decided not to buy and modify a folding utility trailer and happy with the decision after i hit the first pot hole). I put the bunks perpendicular so I can transport a second kayak or storage box so I will need to see how well the bunk screws hold up in that config as its not exemplified in the instructions so may not be advised(?). Easy to move by hand with a heavy kayak (Old Town AP 136) on it. Buy a tounge handle and spare wheel just in case.


With a quick couple of mods to the trailer it is able to tow my 14 foot RIB with 15 horse yamaha down the highway at 60 mph solid and safely. It's been dunked 25 times and everything still works great. I inspected everything this year before hitting the water again as I've had it for a year and the factory grease in the hubs was still perfect. Very happy so far.

Nice trailer. Everything fit perfectly.


My husband had any trouble putting it together. Everything was there. Received it in 3days. Couldn’t be happier.


This is a very well engineered multi sport trailer with high quality parts and materials. I am glad I went with Smith and purchased through E-trailer!

Donald R.


Perfect Trailer for my Zodiac 360 Cadet. I could not be happier!
