NEW Custom built raft trailers made right here in Montana

No one, builds a better, stronger trailer than us.

Full 80" inches wide x 10' foot long.

Made with 3/16ths thick 3inch channel steel, fully welded, 3" channel cross support on axle and gusseted. in front and rear,

These are a Tri Frame Tounge
3" tube tounge made of 3/16" inch steel, with a 2x3 A-frame supports on the tongue prevents tongue from breaking or bending when you hit something backing it up.

36" sub frame made from 3" channel ties into cross members (3'' inch channel) and welded to 5200 lb rated spring holders, with 3500lb springs.

optional Swing lock jack with a six inch wheel, you can lift this trailer by hand but if you have a bad back you will enjoy this jack for moving this trailer around. it swings sideways and sits lower than the deck so you could put a raft over the top of it if you had a 12 to 15' raft.

Due to problems that we have seen with 2000# axles, we only use a solid 3500 lb Dexter EZ lube axles, we use 3500# instead of 2000# axles because the have a bigger set of bearings than the 2000# axles so it means that they last longer. They also have a ez lube grease fitting on the hub for easy seasonal maintenance, you can put a grease gun on it or have the guys a jiffy lube do it for you. If you dont have EZ lube hubs you must remove the wheel and hub to pack the bearings. Incorrectly packing the bearings can cause the wheel to sieze resulting to tire blow out or the wheel falling off compleatly, rolling into oncomming traffic.

Full size 13" tires and wheels, trailer radials, not smaller 12'' or 8'' inch tires that turn faster and wear out bearings on highway. more ground clearance for getting over rocks and rolling over logs.
( I also sell them without tires and wheels if you want it cheaper or have tires yourself)

Custom 2 x 6 decking milled right here in Montana, stained with oil penetrating stain. Our deck boards fit in bolt down steel pockets for easy replacement in 20 years. Bolts don't go though decking( this causes decking to split over time due to flexing). also makes deck easy to remove for trailer painting or rhino lining in the future. (Also available undecked for discounted price, so if you want to install your own plywood that will rot out in a few years.)

2 coat of primer and 2-5coats Rustoleum brand Black paint, (also available unpainted if you have your own custom plans, rhino lining, truck color, or want to save a few bucks,)

this size, will also carry 2 ATV's sideways. Boxed in taillights, DOT stickers
