Tip-up Canoe Trailer

My personal canoe trailer 

Retired and no longer making canoe trailers

Designed for towing with smaller vehicles, camper or motor home. Canoe sits on overhead rack, leaving room for ice chest, cargo box, fire wood or whatever on small cargo area centered on axle. Tires/wheels 4.80 x12" spoke. 900# springs.  All welded tubular chassis. Wiring internal. This trailer is my personal trailer. Another has been fabricated and sold. See my Canoe Trailer Gallery  for photo's of completed trailers. These trailers can be modified or designed to suit your particular needs. Kayaks?  Bicycles? If interested, contact Jack. Please note that I am semi-retired metalsmith and build these trailers to supplement our income on a one at a time basis in my home shop. Trailers must be picked up at the shop or you must arrange shipping.
