Noob question!

Postby DuckComander » Sun Oct 23, 2005 12:37 am

is there a difference in trailers for a V style boat and a flat bottom boat. I can get a flat bottom cheap but doesnt come with a trailor, and i found a regular trailer, i was just wondering if theres is a difference. :tounge:

Yes there is a difference. V bottom trailers will have angled bottom bunks. Flat bottom trailers will have flat bottom bunks.

If I'm not mistaken you can modify it to make it fit either style boat. Where theres a will theres a way.

True!

Mod V trailers are easier to mod than the true V trailers. As a matter of fact, many mod V trailers can house a flat without any modification. However, most true V built trailers will have to be modified somehow. Whether that be cutting and welding, or just removing the bunks and adding reverse angled brackets between the brace and bunk.

Chris is correct, where there's a will there's a way!

Modifying a trailer to fit a different type of hull shouldn't be difficult as long as the boats are similar in size.The bunks on most trailers are adjustable,if not than you can buy or make new ones.

When you say regular trailer do you mean a utility trailer,one that isn't set up for a boat?
