After checking the prices for "ready made" trailers, I decided to build my own! A few months back I bought a Harbor Freight trailer kit for $249.95. It was fairly easy to put together even without power tools. I spent a leisurely 2 days putting it together and heeded the advice from many builders on YouTube to follow the pictures in the instructions rather than words. Modifying it to fit the new inflatable I have in mind was easy. A few pressure-treated two-by-fours for the base, and two 2x10" x10' as bunks did the trick. I had a weld shop add a 6' extension to the hitch as I'm planning on a 12'.6" inflatable and didn't want it right behind the car. Total cost for everything was $425.00 and it was a fun project to boot. Now all I need is a boat.
