Just wanted to share a picture of my trailer...I am waiting for my Pro Angler to arrive, so I went ahead and put some runners on my kayak trailer, with 2.5" PVC conduit and superstrut, with eye-bolts added for tie-down points. Got a lot of good advice from browsing the trailer pics on the forum - thanks to all for the inspiration! Hopefully by next week, I'll have a PA 14 sitting on it...

I did something similar...every day I would come home from work and set my things down on the dinning room table along with a new box of bullets and my wife would put them away for me. This went on for a couple of weeks before she got frustrated and said, "Why do you keep coming home with bullets? You don't even own a gun!" :mrgreen: Well...looks like I need to go buy one!" :mrgreen:

I wonder what she would do if I built the trailer before buying the yack! :shock:

Nice job bud :D

I did the same thing. Found a deal on a Trition double PWC trialer and picked it up. Did the PVC conversion as seen on this site. Only have one PA so I added a Thule cargo/equipment carrier to the other slot. Has worked out great so far. Equipment goes from the PA to the Thule and I don't even have to unload when I get home. Just unhook and ready for next trip.

Thanks guys...

Just as an update - I got the PA on Saturday. Picked it up with the trailer and right off the bat it fit like a glove - I think the conduit is spaced 11" or so apart. The only thing I had to adjust was the vertical post on the tongue to accommodate the length of the PA.

The Pro Angler trailers great on the highway - and the weight of the PA combined with the wood deck on the trailer really cuts down on the bounce (I have the two-leaf, light-duty springs on the trailer)
