Does anyone have two sets of cradles mounted side by side on a trailer ?

What is the total width the boats occupy ? how big is the crossbar they are mounted on ?

Interested in dimensions for AI/AI, AI/TI, and TI/TI so please post what ever you may know

THANKS !!

2 TI's are 8 foot (96 inch), 4 foot each. The 2 AI's are a bit narrower (~6 inch each) at about 7 foot (~84 inch)

Thinking about getting a double/double trailer, but curious how it would work if you just put one TI on the trailer, are the bars adjustable or is the weight negligible?

I don't think the weight of one TI on only one side would be a problem. The center of the TI's weight is inside of the wheels and the trailer weighs more than a TI does.

This brings up a question I have about trailering an AI. I have a single kayak Trailex. Will that not work for an AI with the akas & amas attached?

Why would you think it would not? Do you have about 42" in width? If not then new crossbars should do it.

I'll measure it tomorrow. Thanks.

Can you not trailer the AI with the Akas & Amas in place with wide enough crossbars? ie - What about "supporting" the akas/amas with kayak straps? Or is this another of my dumb blonde questions?

Terry, I believe the answers you have been getting actually refer to two AIs side-by-side in fully assembled form, so you can simply slide them off the cradles, fold out the akas, and raise the mast etc.
