Boat trailers have to tackle some of the most punishing conditions out there, from salt water immersion to mud to year-round weather. They also have to provide exactinghull support on the road and easy loading and unloading at the water’s edge. Load Rite trailers give you the best of both worlds. Our heavy-duty galvanized and aluminum framesare some of the toughest on the market, with exceptional durability and corrosion resistance, while our advanced components secure and protect your craft at every phaseof operation.
You use your boat in the water and your trailer on land, but that brings up the issue of transferring your boat from the trailer to the water. How you do that depends more on your trailer than your boat. Most boat trailers rely on either rollers or skids to support the boat out of the water, and which kind of boat trailer you choose determines how you launch and retrieve your boat. For anyone wanting flexibility, a good set of rollers is invaluable.
Aluminum provides natural corrosion resistance with less weight than a comparable steel frame, saving you fuel and valuable payload.
Set up for a day on the water and transport your vessel with an automotive and towing option constructed to fit your jon boat. Adjustable boards work to accommodate a wide range of boats, enabling a secure fit and versatility.
Rollers are essentially nothing more than wheels for your boat. They both support the boat and let it move onto the trailer without worrying about friction. Most trailers require several different kinds of roller. Keel rollers run along the keel of the boat and support most of its weight. Wobble rollers help keep your boat balanced on the trailer and spread the weight out. Your trailer may also need a bow roller to snug the boat into place.
Bunk trailers provide a classic, time-tested design and solid value. They offer superior hull support and security, making them an ideal choice for steep launching conditions and for boats that spend a lot of time stored on the trailer.
Roller trailers provide easy loading and launching in all conditions and water levels. For boaters who launch alone or those who face challenging ramp and tidal conditions, a roller model will get you loaded or launched in no time.
Self-propelled boat movers are not trailers in the strictest sense of the word. They are hydraulically operated boat movers, with their own tractor unit. They share all of the features of hydraulic boat trailers.
One major trade off for rollers is maintenance time. All those rollers are moving parts, and they require more maintenance than a simple set of skids. Another is that some hulls need the additional support provided by skids.
The biggest advantage of rollers over skids is flexibility. Skid trailers require deep enough water that you can float your boat off the trailer. With rollers you just need enough water to float the boat. It''s also an advantage for the trailer. Because you don''t have to get the boat as deep, you don''t have to submerge the trailer, which is much easier on your hubs, axles, brakes and electrical components. The money you spend on rollers you might save on other boat trailer parts.
Whether you''re a weekend warrior or a year-round boating enthusiast, a boat trailer by Load Rite will get you to the fun faster and without worries.
Whether it’s a pontoon, a ski boat, a kayak or a cruiser, your boat is your home on the water. Doesn’t she deserve a Load Rite?
