The weight of a trailer

Please tell me about your trailer and its weight.

Personally, I want to know the weight of a trailer for a 26 foot sail boat with one axle made of steel -- the trailer has one axle and is made of steel.

However, other people would probably appreciate hearing the weight of your trailer, if you know it, along with a few details about the trailer: material, axles, length. Please describe your trailer and its weight to help people interpolate the likely weight of the trailer they need.

Re: The weight of a trailer

My trailer is huge! Custom made for my sailboat by Triad Trailers in Raleigh NC

It weighs close to 4000 lbs. It is galvanized steel obviously.

You can see pictures of it and of it being built in my profile.
It is in the album labeled step 2.

Re: The weight of a trailer

Trailers of that style, will be in the 750-1200 lb range, as typically, the axel is not rated for more than 3500 lbs total on it, add in some hitch wt, and you have a max 4000 or so lbs the trailer could weigh with a boat. A double axel, potentially with 2 6K axels, could be in the 2-4K range empty, with the ability to handle a pretty heavy boat.

Most if not all trailers for a 26 foot boat will be two axles.
