Where can I get a bolt together trailer for a Nacra 5.8 (19')?  Bottom

  • My trailer has reached the end of its life and wondering where I can get a inexpensive trailer. Have looked at EZ and they don't make a cat trailer. Not sure where to turn. Any help would be much appreciated!

  • Most new cat trailers are over $1000 these days. Your best bet is a used steel trailer for $300-400. I have a bolt together Trailex aluminum for sale for $1000 (new over $2000), but unbolting it & shipping would be $300. Try a Hobie dealer in Houston if there is such an animal left. Pete
  • look for local sail shops, they may have some in back - ask if you can post a index card on their bulletin board ,

    look at local fliers, people advertise used (trashed) catamarans ... throw out the boat, keep the trailer

    find local cat clubs, ask if you can post a index card on their bulletin board

    look or post on line, craigslist, ebay? etc
  • Hi I had a friendly neighbor who gave me his old '59 Elgin Motor boat trailer when his boat had rotted out. He took me next door to my other neighbor who was a notary to sign over the title-one of the hardest things about trailers is getting a clear title. I bought tow 2" square box beams just long enough for the cat at my local steel supplier and used 2 new and 2 recycled rollers from the old motor boat. My trailer cost under $200 at the time. Get creative- a cat doesn't weigh much and many utility trailers will work-you can use a couple of pieces of pvc pipe to roll it a short distance and keep the trailer dry. Make sure you have the correct lighting if you're driving after dark- you may need lights at the middle of the back and sides of the trailer. There are lots of LED trailer lights now that don't take much power.
  • i have one listed on this very website:

    this carried a nacra 5.8 before i bought it and it came from the dallas area.

    not sure what you mean by 'bolt-together'? mine bolts and u-bolts together.
    i'm 640 miles from you.

    Just remember that you will have to modify the tongue/hitch area by quite a bit,(unless you are buying a Hobie Bravo or Wave) it will be way to short. Then you will have to splice the wiring harness, & fabricate a mast stand
