  Trailer loading height varies
  Posted by: pikabike on Dec-31-12 1:14 PM (EST)

The height to load onto our old snowmobile trailer was low. The height to load to our Trailex kayak trailer is a little higher but still manageable even for 5'3" me.

Some have more adjustments possible in the crossbars and risers than others. Some allow carrying other gear besides boats. Payload varies a lot. Make sure that the size of coupler and ball that comes with the trailer suits you and your tow rig's set-up. You can make some alterations after the fact, but it's best to know beforehand what's involved.

Do lots of research before deciding what to buy, or even if to buy.

We LOVE carrying the boats with a trailer instead of rooftopping. There are a few disadvantages, but to us they are greatly outweighed by the benefits. YMMV.
