    I’m looking for a good, lightweight trailer with a long tongue that will gently transport my 16’ and 17’ canoes. Not necessarily at the same time, though that might be a nice possibility.

    What are all y’all’s experienced, knowledgeable recommendations?

    If you can wait until Assembly;
    How to modify a trailer to haul a canoe Laird Smith provides a sample of an inexpensive utility trailer (Harbor Freight) and discusses how he converted it into a canoe hauling rig using simple hardware and angle iron. The trailer can be broken down for storage with little or no tools. (Thurs. 9-11AM) [Lakefront]

    I had questions about a trailer for an 18' canoe a while back. You can see the advice I was given at that time and examples of trailers that people were using (or had modified) here:

    I ended up finding a Holsclaw trailer after watching Craiglist for a month or so.

    Good luck!
