I have been using Yak's Rack-And-Roll.

Nice trailer - people even come up to me unsolicited to remark how cool it looks.

But I think the Hobie trailers are more functional for my use (especially the lower loading height) and I am going to sell the Yak and replace it with one of the Hobies.

I don't want the minimal single-backbone trailer because I want the option of mounting my rooftop box next to the AI if/when it seems like a good idea. ..... I also want more weight capacity.... my rig is an easy 250# as sailed.

Sometime ago, I asked if mounting a single AI off-center to accommodate the much lighter rooftop box would create a balance issue and the answer was "No".

I am assuming that the height will be sufficient for me to insert the scupper dolly while the hull is halfway-off of the trailer.

Once I get it working conventionally, I might even attempt an approximation of FastLane's integrated wheels - only for the AI instead of the TI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1xuRFzLeik

I am guessing that the "Double" (http://www.austinkayak.com/products/487 ... ouble.html) is what I am looking for, but want to make sure.

Since this is a custom setup, I would ask Trailex directly as to what the suggest. The double does look to be a good option.
