does this sound daft?

Due to already having a trailer(car) in my drive, and thus currently limiting my options in a search for boat & trailer, I am considering getting a SIB that can be packed away in the car, but I know that I'll want to trailer it at times.
Is it feasible to put some sort of rack on a small camping trailer to transport the SIB?? rather than a bespoke trailer.
This would hopefully give me some storage space as well as a useful trailer for other uses, and one that can be upended and put away easily.
many thanks
Mark

Sounds pretty sensible to me as long as it's done right

3.2 metres.

My current SIB is 3.5 metres long - it went on there fine (just a bit close to the car's rear window), it was just far too heavy for day to day use.

A normal SIB like my old Avon in the photos would be fine.

Cheers

Chris

thanks
