Bought a 4 place in 2011 and I've pulled it all over the country. It's an amazing trailer, you will pass this on to the next generation of paddlers in your family. The materials used will make the trailer last a lifetime. Money well spent. The racks remove, the gear box below the racks can fit alot of gear, the tarp cover keeps gear dry and clean. Highly recommend you buy this trailer!
We can’t stop talking about how much we love our trailer! We have used it for weekend camping trips, as well as day trips to the lake and it has made our lives so much easier! It is super convenient to just back the trailer into the garage, throw all our gear into the trailer, load the kayaks the day before (including our bikes with the bike rack hitch option!), and then leave right after work or early in the morning to get out on the water! It has taken the hassle out of our kayaking adventures!
No one understood why we were driving all the way to Minnesota to buy the trailer, until we brought it back! They can clearly see the solid craftsmanship of the trailer and all the smart features that it includes. The trailer also handles great at highway speeds, especially 80 mph on our Montana highways. It also handles really well on dirt and gravel roads and doesn’t bounce around much.
This trailer is American made by a customer oriented company! We love how each trailer has the option to be custom built. They were very open to ideas and not pushy, but very honest with what their experience has shown with what works and what doesn’t. We were thinking about getting the heavier axle with the bigger wheels since we travel on many back rounds with deep ruts, in hopes of gaining more clearance. Tristan advised us that the heavier axle would cause it to bounce if we weren’t hauling a significant amount of weight (which we wouldn’t be) so we decided against it. The 13” tires give us plenty of clearance too. They have been in this business long enough to know what works and what doesn’t and we trusted their input.
All in all, this trailer has turned out to be a worthy investment and I am confident it will serve our family well for many years to come! Thank you Remackel Trailers!
Our BSA Troop is located in the Ohio Miami Valley region, which is home to many small rivers ideal for paddling. Our new Remackel trailer has greatly simplified the logistics of getting our watercraft (canoes, kayaks, and SUPs) to the launch and pickup sites. The trailer is extremely well made and assembly was simplified by the color coding of the various parts. In the future, our troop will be making many more treks on the water now that we have our Remackel trailer to get everything there and back.
I bought a galvanized Remackel 4-canoe trailer in 2015. The trailer pulls well, and is well-thought out. I pulled it to BWCA this year, where it sat out in the elements for the first time. On the way home, I noticed some orange staining on the galvanized metal, and immediately called Denny. After sending him some photos, he determined that something went wrong in the galvanization process, and offered to replace the trailer free of charge - 8 MONTHS AFTER MY PURCHASE. Not only did he make good on his promise, but he paid for my fuel to come pick up the new trailer. This is how customer service should be.
Not only does Remackel produce a fine, easy pulling, rugged specialized canoe trailer, but they stand behind their products, and sincerely care about their customers' experience. I would highly recommend Remackel Trailers to anyone wanting a quality American made product from a quality company. Oh yeah, the trailer pulls like a dream and has details that make it a pleasure to use.
I am extremely pleased with my Remackel 4-place kayak trailer with locking lids storage compartment. The trailer is sturdy and of very high quality. It was easy to assemble and it trails on the road like a dream. The experience of working with both Dennis and Tristen was top notch. They truly care about providing their customers with the best quality product and best support possible. Before shipping my trailer they pre-assembled and inspected the hardware just to make sure all the holes were aligned without metal burs that could make assembly more difficult. I even called Dennis on a Sunday afternoon with a minor question and he immediately responded. When I went to the DMV to register my trailer I needed additional paperwork so I called Dennis. He and Tristen dropped what they were doing and immediately provided the extra documentation.
I highly recommend the Remackel Trailer company. The whole experience was incredible, their products are great and they stand behind them 100%. It was so nice to experience real customer service which, at times, seems to be non-existent these days at other companies.
I just recently purchased a 4 place canoe trailer from Remackel trailers. It was shipped here to Alaska in a crate and needed to be assembled. This was a very easy task giving the instructions were designed to follow a color coded pattern. I like the design over all, save one small thing and that is the access to the lower storage compartment can be a bit tricky if you have a canoe stored atop on the rack. That being said the storage is very large and spacious and can be accessed easier when no canoe is present. I am looking forward to having the trailer for a number of years and being able to transport a number of canoes and gear all at once.
I Purchased a 4 place canoe trailer this spring and love it. exceeded my expectations. Extremely well built and tows like a dream. I can easily load and strap down 4 canoes by myself. The canoes stay in place very well when traveling. All my gear packs well in the trailer and stays dry because of the nice canvas cover. I have been on multiple canoe trips already this year and have put on many miles with not a single issue. I love this trailer because of all the many uses it has. In no time the canoe racks comes off and now you have an awesome utility trailer. I've hauled yard waste, fire wood and my 4 wheeler around. Everything is galvanize and still looks as good as the day I got it. This by far the best trailer I have ever owned and will last a very long time because of the quality parts and craftsmanship that goes into each trailer. The customer service these guys provide is the best I've ever received. If your looking for a good quality product, these guys are the best!! You won't be disappointed.
An excellent trailer for those needing utility and canoe/kayak hauling capability. No problems at highway speeds (70 mph). These folks know how to make a functional product and take pride in doing it right.
This is an extremely well made rugged 4 boat trailer. I purchased this trailer last December and used it for winter storage under a tarp for my Old Town Canoe in a tough New England winter. In the spring, the trailer was in perfect condition and has been a workhorse in carrying multiple kayaks and canoes for our family river trips. I took it on a 300 mile day trip to the upper Delaware at reasonably high speed on the interstates and it traveled smoothly. I love the storage compartment and the waterproof cover. The trailer has gotten many complements from my boating friends here in New England, including some dealers. I couldn't be happier with my choice.
Love our trailer! I feel like it was the perfect investment as I'm getting the value of two trailers in one - a utility trailer I can use all year and a kayak trailer I can use for our summer camping trips. Took it out for the first time last week out was on a 600 mile trip to South Dakota to go kayaking it worked perfectly carrying the kayaks and our luggage and paddles under the canvas in the trailer, worked great!
Trailered well, over 400 miles the first day with no problems! I had been looking for a combination utility trailer / kayak carrier, and this suits my needs very well.
We have a 4 place canoe trailer and it has performed far above any trailer I have used before. Attention to detail as well as welded and built to last. We carried 2 x 18 foot Kevlar canoes along with two shorter canoes and all the gear for BWCA trip. Over 500 miles later - I am pleased. Excellent quality.
I purchased the 4 place canoe/kayak trailer 5x7 with 16" sides shipped to my house in early July 2015. Tristen at Remackel was super to work with during the whole process. Trailer arrived at 11am and we had it built, titled, and plated (temp plates & bmv was fast) by 6pm, say 5 hours to build it. Everything went together great, well built, solid parts/materials, good assembly plan, no worries.
I just returned from the maiden voyage which was to the UP about 500mi north. 3 fishing kayaks & 1 canoe, the 5x7 boxed loaded wisely, but full. The trailer pulled like a dream, barely new it was back there, 75mph, rain, wind, no issues and the box cover (tarp) worked great, no leaks. If your into fishing/camping trips and need a trailer, the folks at Remackel make the best!
I would give the trailer a 10 except that it is difficult to load the top rack due to the lowest horizontal being short. So you can load a bunch of boats on the middle rung, but you can't hang on to the top rung, nor stand on the bottom one without rock climbing skills. I'll be looking at adding some sort of step to the trailer for the safety of the climbers.
Other than that this is a great trailer, a good price point, and it will last forever.
Wow! We've been saying that over and over since we bought the trailer. Our wooden canoes love it too!
Everything about this trailer is well thought out and easy to use. When we picked up ours, we were able to see another one being built--serious frame and solid construction.
We love how bright the LED lights are, the padding on the bars does not mar wooden gunwales, and canoes don't move at all when strapped onto this trailer. We love the galvanized metal since our trailer won't spend much time indoors, and the fitted tarp sheds downpours perfectly and doesn't flap at all in the wind.
It pulls so nicely. These tires roll so much nicer and smoother than the tiny things that are on some other trailers I've pulled, and the diamond plate "steps" welded on by the wheel wells give a sturdy place to stand for a higher reach.
Previously we had thought about modifying a utility trailer ourselves to haul canoes, but we are so happy we bought this one instead.
VERY WELL MADE! Excellent buy. Highly recommend. I purchased a REMACKEL 4 place canoe trailer recently. Great item to have. Trails well. Easy to load (1/4 of the time it takes to secure on trucks or cars). VERY WELL MADE! Excellent buy. Highly recommend. This should be a selection for all serious canoe people transporting and canoe tripping.
I just picked up my new 4 canoe/kayak trailer from Remackel Trailer last weekend. My son and I drove 1600 miles round-trip to pick it up. It was worth well worth the trip.
I almost don't know where to start. The design of the trailer is so well thought out. The craftsmanship is from a different era. The attention to detail is unmatched. I have an engineering background, and I just marvel at the quality and design of this trailer. You can tell that Dennis and his team take tremendous pride in their work.
The trailer rides extremely well both empty or fully-loaded. It is very stable and rides so well that I almost forgot that I was hauling a trailer during my return trip from MN to OH.
Finally, through all of my interactions, from creating the specs to picking up the trailer, Dennis and Tristen were responsive, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Remackel Trailer to anybody who is looking for a very high quality trailer that will get the job done.
Best kayak/camping trailer out there. It is made with the care you would take if you were making it yourself - everything has been thought of... Great design, construction, and materials throughout.
I absolutely love it!!! After years of renting canoes and kayaks and trying to strap them on the top of my car.....I got tired of it, the scratches to the vehicle, the picking up and dropping off at the paddling shop, and mostly being at the schedule of when the boats were available. So I bought my kids and myself kayaks this year. So that left me with the debate on how to transport them. I looked at ways toe rig them up top, at T bars, and finally at trailers. Initially I looked at the Yakima brand as I liked the idea of being able to fold up the trailer for easy storage. However tempting that was I couldn't get past the cost...especially once all the mounts were added in, and the fact that it was pretty one dimensional. Luckily I saw the Remackel website and was very interested. Loved the idea of how easy it looked to mount your boats, how well the trailers were built, that they are built in northern Minnesota and mostly that they can be used for so much more than just hauling my kayaks. So I went for it and bought the 4 boat trailer. I absolutely love it!!! I could easily fit 5 or 6 kayaks on it and I already cleared out a couple of trees now that I have a trailer to haul brush with. I'm a bit of a handy man as well and it will come in VERY handy on my trips to the lumber yard.
I picked mine up and it was really neat to see the set up...Dennis and Tristen took me in and showed me around. Was really interesting to see all the hand work they do themselves and what a quality product it is. I also think their pricing is very reasonable....I HIGHLY recommend this product and I'm so glad I went with Remackel!!!
Just bought the 4 kayak deliverable Remackel trailer. Assembly was incredibly simple. It is plain to see that Remackel worked really hard to make the instructions clear and assembly easy.The trailer looks awesome. It tows as well as any trailer I have ever towed. It is the best kayak trailer on the market. Tristen at Remackel, worked really hard to make sure delivery was flawless.
Just picked up our 4 place canoe/kayak trailer. Awesome steel construction and many little features to make this a long-lasting and convenient trailer. The best customer service! They agreed to meet me on a Sunday for my convenience, and spent extra time helping repair some electrical issues with my trailer hitch when we discovered a problem. If you want a quality, multi-purpose trailer with a business to stand behind their product and amazing customer service, Remackel Trailers is your best bet! Would definitely buy another if I am ever in the market.
The Remackel 4-place canoe trailer is one well designed and quality built trailer. Details of build quality were especially evident while assembling, as I opted for shipment of a crated unit, which was less costly than the long drive to Minnesota.
This is a very sturdy trailer, with high quality welding of the steel frame and exceptional quality galvanizing of all steel components; even including the wheel and spare tire rims. I thought the 30 year guarantee on the galvanizing sounded a bit extreme, until seeing it up close. There are a number of design features; all built to last. And this trailer does double duty as a very handy utility trailer. You can either easily remove the canoe rack components to convert to a sturdy 5' by 7' box utility trailer, with 16" heavy duty tail gait, enabling hauling of sheet stock, or the canoe racks can be used to haul 16 ft. framing lumber with ease. This is a very handy feature.
The canoe racks are really heavy duty and feature high density rubber gunnel guards riveted onto the galvanized steel frame, a very nice feature for the ash and cherry gunnels on my 16.5 ft. Langford Ultralite Prospector. Loading canoes onto this trailer is dead simple, and so much easier than roof mounts that limit you to one canoe capacity. I prefer to put the Langford on the top rack, above the hood height of any careless drivers. My 14.5 ft. Wenonah Vagabond solo goes on a bottom rack, and while the Esquif 14.5 ft. Pocket Canyon with its extreme rocker for whitewater will fit on the bottom rack, it is easier when alone to mount it on the top rack.
This trailer comes with a very nice custom fit rubberized tarp, which combined with two removable sturdy aluminum tarp bows that prevent rain from pooling on the tarp, keeps the cargo box dry. After a night of heavy rain while camping (3 inches!), all gear in the trailer box was bone dry!
The 5 ft. by 7 ft. by 16 inch high box provides more than enough room to haul camping and canoeing gear, leaving the back of my Jeep free for the dog and any gear I want locked up. With the heavy duty construction this trailer has enough heft to be very stable on the highway in winds, etc., yet is light enough for easy towing on back roads and trails.
I have owned a few trailers in my time, and the combination of unique functionality and high build quality beat anything I’ve seen. Highly recommended.
What a pull! Just got my new four boat 16 inch walled Remackel trailer and drove up to the Apostle Islands for a quick kayak dip in Lake Superior before heading south across Wisconsin the long way. Trailer rode great! Backing up is a breeze. Cannot wait to use on an extended camping/boating/biking trip. Easy to move by hand to store. Wonderful and great craftsmanship - get it - a craft made by good men to move your ship...
Absolutely love it! Straight forward and well diagrammed assembly. Definitely a two person job but only took a couple of hours. High quality materials and very well constructed. Everything was color coded, pre-drilled, and lined-up perfectly.
I spent hours and hours researching kayak trailers. I really wanted a multi-purpose trailer to haul a lot of gear and our kayaks too. The Remackel trailer is perfect. It's super-solid, tracks beautifully, and looks great. Dennis and Tristen were very helpful answering all the questions I had both before and after purchasing and assembly. Really great guys to work with.
We've been avoiding our kayaks for the past two years because it was just getting too hard to get all three of them up on the roof of my pickup and strapped down. No more. Got the trailer on Tuesday, assembled it that evening, and was on the water on Sunday. Perfect!
I bought a 4-place, 2200 lb capacity model and I am very impressed by the design, construction and features of the trailer. Dennis has put a lot of thought into strength/weight ratio. Material selection and execution of the design are top-notch. Tongue jack and spare tire included add to the value. I spent many years pulling canoe trailers around at a summer camp and this is easily the best I've ever used.
Picked up trailer from Remackel and drove 500 miles home. No problems, pulled straight and true. Very pleased with design and craftsmanship. A wonderful balance of utility trailer and canoe trailer. Well Done.
I recommend without reservation.
Picked up my Ultimate 4 rack canoe trailer 3 days ago.
I drove it home 200 miles and was very impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. The trailer is extremely well built and appears to be very durable for the long run. Dennis has been building trailers for 25 years and it shows in the quality of his trailers.
Best customer service I've received! Will definitely buy here again. I heard about them through a friend of mine who spends a lot of time researching his buys, so I knew I could trust his recommendation and he was right! Very easy to use and at a great price (which isn't a common thing these days)! The racks are removable which was a huge selling point for me as I use trailers for work daily and for camping-canoeing-atv trips.
Thanks again guys!
I bought the 4 place canoe trailer and the canoe racks are so easy to remove. I would recommend anyone buy a canoe trailer from Remackel trailers.
Great product from a fantastic, family-run company. Trailer I received was very high quality and the customer service was top notch as well. Can't really ask for much else! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to purchase a canoe trailer.
I have used Remackel Trailers in the past and can say without hesitation that they are some of the best trailers on the market. They're sturdy, carefully crafted, and the owner of the company is extremely knowledgeable about his product. They're a truly local and American made product. Buy one and it most likely be the last trailer you'll ever need because it's built last.
Purchased a canoe trailer from Remackel Welding and I am very pleased with the quality and utility. I wanted a trailer that could be used year around and not just for canoes. I got the heavy duty one (3500# axle) and use it to haul everything from yard mulch to rocks. Being able to remove the canoe rack really helps. Only wish I would have gotten the trailer years ago. Great Product!
