A thread to post photos and description of your kayak trailer set-ups.

Here is mine from the outside (ignore the dowel, it's just resting there).

It's an old luggage trailer. Solid as. The leaf springs are quite worn so well suited to light load. I've done lots of modifying inside. I'll post some up to date photos later this week.

Some internal photos of my trailer.

A place for everything, and everything in it's place.
- Water tank is located over the axle.
- In front of tank is a plastic box containing my partner's gear and 2+1 gear
- My gear is in the black bag on top of the tank.
- Cut outs for tackle, chill and battery pods.
- Rod holders (up to 8x 2.2m) on the ceiling,
- Paddles (up to 3) and poles on side walls.

- Washdown pump with pressure switch so it runs on demand (needs a protective cover)

- IP66 12v LED lights (red/white) on the roof.
- Front rod holders are a PITA to get to. Will be replaced with foam tubing for the tips to slide into.
