Custom Kayak Trailer Build

Custom kayak trailer built up from Ironton utility trailer kits from Northern Tool.

The original tongue is only 4′, so a custom 12′ replacement was made locally in by the Richmond Metal Supermarket. The new tongue is 2.5″ boxed aluminum and is bolted across all three cross-members. The truck racks give added space to load extra boats.

The expanded aluminum deck was painted black to match the racks with truck bed liner.

This custom kayak trailer will easily carry 4 to 6 kayaks on the bed and on the racks.
