Recommended Trailer for Bass Pro Pond Prowler 10 Foot Fishing Boat

Question:

Im looking for something to transport my Bass Pro Pond Prowler 10E. It is 10 long. What is the ideal trailer for this boat? I saw a review of a Malone Microsport Jon Boat Trailer that looked interesting. The part # was MPG461JB. Thanks

We have a really great option for a trailer for your 10 foot Bass Pro Pond Prowler boat, although the Malone trailer you mentioned has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available. Instead, which I highly recommend is an option from CE Smith:

- CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks # CE48810

When I looked up your boat it was just 130 lbs and 48 inches wide so it is going to be a perfect fit for this trailer and something you'll be able to easily use yourself. This trailer has smaller 8 inch wheels so it is low to the ground so you can get your boat on the bunks when loading up.

Like the Malone trailer, the CE Smith comes with a winch so you don't have to make a separate purchase. It also has the necessary lights, 4-way connector and paperwork so all you have to do is put it together and you're set. This is an easy-to-use trailer with a galvanized frame for durability so it's going to last, and is a great way for you to carry your boat.

I have added a photo and review a customer sent in of their bass boat on the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks # CE48810.

While it is not the same boat as yours, it should give you an idea at least of how it will work for you.

Question:

Can you get this with a tire mount, the rolling wheel and lift handle added like the Malone Trailer had?

There is a way to a jack with a wheel, tire, spare tire and mount on the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer # CE48810.

What you would need are the following parts:

- Tire and Wheel: Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range B # AM30030
- Spare Tire Carrier: CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier - Galvanized Steel # CE27310G
- Jack and Trailer Mover: Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211

The Trailer Valet is a premium option so the other thing you could do is get a standard jack, the Round Swivel Marine Jack # MJ-1206B and a trailer dolly, the CE Smith Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly # CE27550 or MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225.

Both dollies use a 1-7/8" hitch ball, but the tongue weight of the trailer will allow the 2" coupler to stay on the dolly. I've added links to video reviews of these options for you to check out.

While you can't put 12" wheels on the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks - 8" Wheels # CE48810, there is an option of this exact trailer with 12" wheels:

- CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Boat and Kayak Trailer with Bunks - 12" Wheels # CE48870

There isn't a lift handle for either of the CE Smith options but you can use the aforementioned Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 or Trailer Dolly # CE27550 or # MT70225 with standard jack # MJ-1206B.

Then for a spare tire you would need the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30590 with Spare Trailer Tire Carrier # CE27310G.

I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the CE Smith Multi Sport Plus Trailer - 12" Wheels # CE48870.
