|Why a Storage Trailer?|
|The reason we call our strong 20’ to 24’ tandem axle trailers
without brakes storage trailers is because they
DON’T HAVE BRAKES. In many states it’s illegal to sell
a tandem axle trailer with a 3000+ capacity without brakes. States like Michigan
mandate that tandem axle trailers even have tandem axle brakes. Some of the
national manufacturers have quit selling tandems without brakes. In the past
we’ve always stressed that our trailers are “road trailers”. Good strong
trailers that can travel anywhere without difficulties. But a good percentage of
our sales are to lake property owners who aren’t traveling and who don’t want to
add the expense of brakes to the cost of a trailer ($500+).
For 2019 we’ve conferred with our insurance company and our attorney because we don’t want to stop providing good quality trailers to customers who really aren’t traveling much. The solution (until we have trouble) is to identify these trailers as storage trailers. We believe this will prevent any difficulties for our customers when registering trailers with their state (EXCEPT PENNSYLVANIA ). However, some marine dealers, often the most successful ones (with real assets) may refuse to sell a tandem axle trailer without brakes.
|Standard Features of Tandem Axle Non-Brake Models|
|22' and 24' trailers have a reinforced stern for
modern pontoon boats with larger-heavier engines.
|Bunks are supported on the main
5" brackets allow you to tow lower and launch in shallower water.
Our tandem axle non-brake models have more standard features and strength than most of our competitors. In fact, the only stronger frame that we know of is our brake trailer.
|Steel fenders offer real protection for your boat when on the
trailer. LED lights eliminate light and wiring problems, they won’t “pop”
when submerged in water. The best 13” D range radial tires with a 1610 lb.
capacity on galvanized rims.
Galvanized rims won’t rust around the lug holes. A 3200 lb. winch won’t fail
when loading a 3500 lb. boat. The anti-bucking loop holds your boat to the
trailer and pulls the front down. A swing away dual wheel tongue jack will
support the heaviest boats.
Our standard 4” box tube steel, 12 gauge side frames and cross members, reinforced front. Baked on Rock gaurd coat finish with a 2” coupler and a 1500 lb. swing away dual wheel tongue jack. Deluxe winch stand with big step and large handrail. Bunks adjust for pontoons 8’ to 8’ 6” wide. 5 cross members tie the side frames together. There are tie-down points on the frame. Marine grade rubber backed carpeting over 2” x 6” wooden bunks on 20'. Bunks are supported on the main frame. All required DOT equipment.
|A benefit to getting optional bunk wrap is that when wet it’s “slippery” helping boats launch and retrieve more easily in shallow water. An optional spare tire is always a good ideawith a U-bolt mounting bracket. Load guides are also popular and sooner or later you’ll retrieve your boat on a windy day and you’ll wish you had them. Sold as a set of 4 they can be moved up the frame to assist in all depths of water if you have deep ramps, move them to the second or third cross brace. In shallow water mount them back.|
