What Length Trailer Will I Need
The diagrams display the correlation between the boat hull and trailer dimensions.
The Drain Plug to Bow Eye measurement as shown in the accompanying diagrams is the most critical in sizing a trailer for boat length. Pulpits and Euro transoms are generally not supported by the trailer. Including these in length measurements could result in a trailer that does not fit well.
These trailer schematics are provided to illustrate the dimensions displayed on many of the product charts that follow.
Many trailers have a great amount of adjustment in the support structure. Adjustment to either extreme may require moving the axles to maintain tongue weight in the 5% to 7% ideal range for most trailers.
Schematics are a visual representation of a generic trailer and are not drawn to a particular scale.
"A" Bow Eye to Transom Maximum
"B" Bow Eye to Transom Minimum
"C" Rear to Angle Support
