Default Updated the kayak trailer

Big shout out to Eddie over at English Trailers, great service at a good price!

My trailer was origianlly a 10x6 aluminum motorcycle trailer. Last year I had built a home made rack out of Unistrut and used some cheaper Kayak "J" style racks. The unistrut actually worked out really well but the cheap eBay kayak racks did not and were getting pretty rusty. I also could only hold three. Here it is before.





I purchased 60" uprights and two 80"cross bars. I could easily add another cross bar to haul six yaks but no point since I only have four. I am having a sign made to put between the uprights as a rolling billboard too! Now if the wind will stop blowing so I can stop cancelling trips Id be a happy man!!

Thanks guys. I added PVC bunks for the PA with the help of Ginzu today but I still need to add something for the outbacks. Any suggestions?

Great looking trailer JD!!! I dont know if you are aware of this but all trailers in the state of Florida are required to have fenders. I have a friend that built a home made trailer and used it for years and got pulled over a while back for nothing other than to be told he needed to put fenders on the trailer and that he could be cited for not having them. Luckily he wasnt cited at that time. Again very cool trailer JD!!
