  • 1.  Trailer Recommendations to Carry 12 Kayaks/SUPs

    Posted 10-06-2021 01:21 PM
    Hi everyone. I am looking for suggestions for a trailer that can carry up to 12 kayaks/SUPs. Does anyone have a recommendation? What size do you have? (height x width x length) Do you prefer a closed or open trailer?
    I have been researching them online, but they all have benefits and drawbacks. Just looking for things you like or dislike about the trailer you have. Also, features you wish you had?
    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello Nick,

    In my former position we started the Crooked River Adventures canoe/kayak livery on the middle Cuyahoga River in Northeast Ohio.

    We transported a variety of canoes, whitewater kayaks, touring kayaks, and SUPs for trips on the river.

    We had a custom trailer built through Trailex, which was lightweight aluminum, strong, and durable.

    Here is a link for more information:

    I've seen several outdoor programs across the country that use Trailex trailers for their boats.

    Hope this is helpful!

    All the best,
