WTB - Raft Trailer

I am in the market for a solid raft trailer to fit a 13' 6" raft. I live in Oregon and will drive to pick up the right trailer.

Thanks in advance for any leads you may have.

Respectfully,

Desk

I bought one from a guy who lived outside of Portland for around $1,500. Awesome trailer and about the best price around. There was a thread about it on Washington Fly Fishing in the watercraft forum. Worth a look.

Yes, it was. I looked around a bit and it was the best deal I could find. I've been very happy with the trailer.

Desk,

I use a snowmachine trailer for a 13' raft here, maybe your local Craig's list will have one as summer approaches. Just a thought, some people unload snowmachines & the works in the spring. If you don't get snow there check the listings up in the mountains.

Desk, nrs gear swap has a trailer listed, If it looks as good as he says it it is a good buy. I had a custom trailer built for me and it cost more than what he is asking, good luck.

ARD - Good thinking. I will keep my eye peeled. We get plenty of snow in the mountains here in the Bend are and I do see these type of trailers from time to time.

Whiskey - Thanks for the heads up. I emailed the guy and hopefully he will get back with some pics.

Thanks and take care fellas!

Mike from M.S trailers can build you anything you want. It will hold up on the road to macks. Here is a picture of the trailer he built for me.
It will be hard to find a snow machine trailer that is cheaper and if you try to find a used one it wont be much cheaper. Been there done that.
