The trailer which came with the 14T simply had piping as cross members with old foam kayak carriers on them for cradles for the boat. I wanted rollers but didn't want to pay for cross bars and rollers so I came up with the following solution which so far is working fairly well.

I see potential for a quintuple-stack trailer though!

Well, the trailer and 14T cost $650 plus another $50 to fabricate the rollers. The closest price I could find for a Cat trailer was about a grand which I consider a much worse form of overkill. As is this works as a cost effective solution. I'll likely add a Jacuzzi in the future; maybe even a wet bar. ;) In truth, the next step is to cover the rollers in neoprene to soften them up a bit.

Yes but I need a trailer and this serves for now. In the picture you can spot another cat trailer behind it with a lot of rust. The rollers on it don't roll. These new ones are lower to the ground and roll really well (almost too well). I guess at some point when I win the lotto, I might want a bigger cat. This could work for my future Wild Cat. ;)

You could triple stack your new wildcat and your 16 and 14 on that bad boy!
