Buying this boat has been an experience. The Trekker is orange and 12'8" long. On the first trip down a local river, noticed the boat was leaning way over to one side. A close look at it verified it was not made symmetrical (i.e., was visibly lopsided), which caused it to sit cocked in the water. Sent pictures of it to the on-line store I bought it from and asked for a return/refund. However, since they wanted me to pay the return shipping (~$35) even though it wasn't my fault, I contacted Swimline Corp since they have a one-year warrantee on it. They sent me a new one (actually sent a whole new package because they don't keep just the hulls in stock; but they required me to cut out the two hull ID numbers from the original boat and send them back in, so that wrecked one side tube.) I examined the second Trekker boat immediately, and it had similar issues, but not so bad that it would not be usable. Again I sent Swimline the pictures, along w/ pictures I found on the internet that showed the same issue. They got wiser and more understanding this time: they let me keep the second Trekker boat as is, and said they are going to a "new structure" now, so they will send me one of those boats instead. What they sent was a better model of theirs called the Traveller II (the full package again), which is off-white and eight inches longer. It has the same type of design, but maybe they are having better success w/ this model.
This Traveller II boat I received was only slightly out of symmetry, and I am satisfied and like it. (See my review for the Solstice Traveller II.)
I started to use the second Trekker boat & noticed the floor had deflated by the next day after use. Found one point along the side of the floor where the seam did not come fully together to cover all of a long row of tiny holes. I patched it and it held. However, after each of the next several uses, there was yet another hole each time after I used it! (One more seam issue, plus three pin holes!) Don't see how I could have damaged it so many times w/ just normal use, so it seems there must be a material and/or manufacturing weakness w/ this particular boat, or maybe with this model as whole. (FYI – I do know how to handle inflatable kayaks, as I have owned a half dozen of them over the last several years, so this is not due to me mishandling it.) After patching a total of FIVE holes in this second boat, I have now used the boat several times since then w/ no further damage (yet).
In spite of quality issues, I like the features on the Trekker (similar on the Traveller II also):
If they would correct their quality issues with the Trekker, or have already corrected them with the Traveller II, these boats offer nice features for a reasonable price.
