Trailer for camping supplies and hauling a small boat

6 posts in this topic

We recently purchased a Truck Camper that we are looking forward to using this season. We would also like to purchase an enclosed trailer that we can pull behind our Truck that can be used to store all of the miscellaneous camping, fishing or hunting equipment that we might need on a trip. We would also like to be able to mount a 14 ft. fishing boat on a rack on the trailer roof. Would prefer that the height of the trailer be only about five feet so that two people can easily load the boat on top of the trailer. Instead of the trailer consisting of one totally open area like most of the enclosed trailers are that I have seen, we would like the trailer to have several side doors that can be opened to access several compartments in the trailer.

Is anybody aware of a company that manufacturers trailers something like this or a company that might be able to build one as a special order? The enclosed trailers I have seen are normally too high for what we would like to use it for.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

How about a used pickup service body. Many of them already have rack on top that would work perfect for a boat. They have nice doors and pull out trays.

Google Remackel Trailers in Forest Lake and check out what Dennis builds.

I got a 4'x8'x2' utility trailer from him and love it. I added a rack for the canoe, but it would work great for a small boat too. I was actually thinking the other that, if I got a little Jon boat or something, I wouldn't need to get a trailer.

Use it for utility, camping, ATV, snowmobile...everything I need. Some of the best $$ I've ever spent. This thing will last for a long, long time. It doesn't have separate compartments, but you could talk to him about that - He does custom stuff.

He's excellent at what he does and is extremely cool to work with.

Hope this helps.

Used to see them all the time years ago. Pretty standard enclosed box type trailer with a boat flipped over and hauled on top. Some of the better ones used rollers (probably from an old wringer wash machine) on the back edge to roll the boat on. Wouldn't be too hard to make.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will follow-up with the Forest Lake dealer and also check further into some type of pickup service body that could be mounted on a trailer. I appreciate your assistance.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
