Hi - I am considering getting a trailer for my kayak, for a variety of reasons.

Any recommendations?

And are there any out there that can double as a general purpose trailer too, while also being able to tow a kayak? If there are - this would be easier to get sign off on from my wife....

Thanks.
John

I have a 6x4 galvanised Pinto trailer for my kayak but it also serves as a general purpose workhorse. It's just the right size to load sheets of standard gib. It can carry a cubic metre of topsoil or compost too. It's also reasonably easy to lift without too much strain.

I was bloody lucky to get my trailer. It came with some very useful accessories - H bars ( to carry 2 kayaks) and a large PVC storage pipe.

Just be aware you'll get lots of requests from friends and family to borrow your trailer.
