Trailer was exactly as anticipated. The bolts are colored to the holes in the frame. Took 2 guys 40 minutes to put together. Really well thought out process.
8 Rack Canoe Trailer with covered storage.
I am writing a review for an 8-place canoe / utility trailer from Remackel Trailers. I am a high school Environmental Science teacher and Outdoor Club advisor in SE Wisconsin, and have been taking my students canoeing for about 17 years now. I have dealt with my share of equipment options over the years, and can honestly say that for my needs, this by far is the best trailer out there.
The construction is sturdy, the pull on the road is extremely smooth, and the functionality in design is exactly what I need to get my crew to and from our destination without concerns about safety or performance. Everywhere you look, the details allow for the efficiency of loading and unloading canoes and equipment you need to get the most out of your trailer. From platforms, to hooks, to handles, the design and placement of the items on and around the trailer have been set up by folks who know what works best when the trip is on. There is nothing cheap about this trailer. It has 13" wheels, marine grade plywood, heavy duty rubber guards to set the canoes onto, and a welded rack that is galvanized inside and out. I am anticipating that these considerations in construction will make this trailer last a long, long time.
I am especially fond of this trailer because it doubles as a utility trailer with 12" sides. Just take out the pins and slide the canoe rack out, and we have a trailer for doing community service projects like invasive buckthorn removal and metal recycling collection from local residents. I opted for the utility cover, and can haul paddles, life jackets, nets, and other equipment in the utility bed with room to spare. I was even pleased to see how they included removable braces that keep the utility cover tight. It hardly flaps in the wind while I'm pulling it.
This trailer is one that I have no regrets about purchasing. I will not need to research other companies if I decide that we need to add to our canoe fleet in the future. Remackel trailers are the Cadillacs of canoe trailers. If you want the best, Remackel is where you go. There are less expensive trailers out there, but if you figure out how many cheap trailers (and headaches) you'd need to go through during the lifetime of one of these trailers, I'm pretty confident that this option is the better deal in the long run.
We picked up our 8 place canoe trailer from Remackels last week and it looked great. Nice welding workmanship,canoe protectors on the rails. Tie down hooks, tires and box just the way we wanted. We ordered the trailer of course and Dennis was very careful to make us what we wanted as well as what we needed. The communication was excellent. Anyway off to Wenonah we go and pick up 8 heavy livery canoes,and head back to Little Falls. The trailer performed excellent. It's super balanced, no sway at all. 65mph with 700lbs of boats and it tracks like it's on rails. I forgot to mention the sweet custom made tarp with tie-downs that covers the box, doesn't even flap at highway speeds. Thanks Dennis.
