Trailer Overhaul

I went in search of a used jetski trailer, preferably a galvanized one. Searches on craigslist were ridiculous on prices. Luckily I found one on Facebook which is the last place that I would have ever expected to find one. Yes, it was bare and in bad shape but doable to convert it to what I needed. For the price acquired it was perfect for what I had in mind for a kayak hauler.

First step was to clean it up, strip it down and paint the frame with galvanized paint. Afterwards I repacked the wheel bearings, purchased new wheels with tires, new coupler and then new trailer lights and wiring followed by unistrut where required and pvc tubing for the hobie rails.
