The raft trailer that we build is designed with the guide in mind and uses the sturdiest materials available made to last.
With a little maintenance, it will be the last trailer you ever buy.
Our trailers come with 2200lb torsion axles and 13" radial trailer tires with a spare mounted on a carrier under the deck. We put a hand crank winch on the front and a full width steel roller on the back for the easiest loading and unloading of your boat. We use sealed led lights and heat shrink connectors to eliminate wiring headaches. We use a 3/4 inch plywood built with waterproof glue for decking. It has a light grey textured UV rated plastic overlay surface on top so your boat slides on and off with ease with no fear of splinters. The textured surface gives you a little traction as well when you are walking around on the trailer. All trailers come with stake pockets on the front and sides so you can haul more than just your boat if need be. The underside of the trailer is painted with a grey epoxy primer and the exterior frame work is coated with a rubberized liner.
Our Standard Trailer has a 12’ long deck that is 88” wide. The trailer is 15’10” long overall and 92” wide overall taking into account the stake pockets on the sides. We recommend this size trailer for boats up to 14’6” long. For boats 15’ long and over, we recommend our 14’ deck trailer which is 98” wide overall. The cost on the larger trailer is $3900 and it comes with the larger 14” tires included in that price.
We can also upgrade to larger axles and tires and wheels if you prefer. We can upgrade to a 3500 lb axle for an additional $150. We can go to a 14” tire and wheel package on our 12’ deck trailer for an additional $150.
We also do some custom welding and variations so if you have ideas of your own or something you would like added, just give us a call.
Ask us about Boat Buckles as well. They are by far the BEST way to strap your boat down to your trailer and we can install them for an additional $45 each. We recommend one on all four corners. Add them to your new trailer or get some for your old one. You won't regret it.
We can also add a tongue jack with a wheel for an additional $75.

"Living in Missoula affords the opportunity to fish great rivers anytime we want, but there is nothing better than hiring the pros at BRO for a refresher course, entertain visiting friends or do some serious fishing with our kids."
