Trailex PocketShip Trailer

Ordering Options:

Price: $3101.00


This trailer was custom-designed and built specifically for PocketShip.  Features include all-aluminum construction for light weight and corrosion resistance.  The aluminum box beams are very strong!  The light weight has been a boon not just for gas mileage (it was originally designed so that John Harris could tow PocketShip behind his 2.4 liter Honda), but also for rolling PocketShip around parking lots and shops. Ours has now covered over 10,000 highway miles, including several round-trips from Annapolis, MD to Port Townsend, WA and back. 
The PocketShip trailer includes 12" wheels plus a spare & mount, Super Lube bearing caps with grease fittings (bearing buddies), a rack jack, 1-7/8" ball, an extended tongue so you can keep the bowsprit in place, a wide axle, sprung suspension matched to PocketShip, 2 rollers, 2 side bunks, running lights, wench post, wench, and tag mount.  Unlike the SUT trailer kits, the custom PocketShip trailer comes mostly pre-assembled and will be shipped via common carrier truck.  Minor assembly and some some adjustments will need to be made to fit your PocketShip snugly.
It's pricier than a galvanized or steel trailer, but we think there are huge benefits in gas mileage, transmission wear-and-tear, ease of use on ramps and in parking lots, and in corrosion resistance, not to mention that it was designed to fit the PocketShip.  Let us know if you would like a shipping quote. 
Additional Spare tire and tire carrier are available options.
