Trailoer tips for SIB?
^^^^ Is a good idea if you plan on taking the motor on and off. If you plan on keeping the motor on that isn't a good idea, as then you have to lift the boat on and off, which you would not be able to do with the motor on.
If you are dead set against keeping the motor on, why even bother with a trailer? Just inflate/deflate each time. It only adds about 15minutes. You can make of have a box/motor mount combo made that would slide into a receiver hitch an put your extras in the box and put the motor on the carrier.
It doesn't seem to make much sense to me either way (motor on or off) to use a box type trailer, as then you have to lift the boat each time you load or unload. BUT, it comes down to being a personal preference, and whether you inflate/deflate, trailer with the motor on or off, use a flat-bed utility or a box trailer, have fun boating!
