Optimised boat trailer

Boat trailer for quick loading and unloading

Boat trailers are usually equipped with light bar at the back of the trailer. When loading or unloading the boat, the bar has the be uninstalled or installed every time. This is time consuming and cumbersome. Reason enough to look for an alternative solution.

I cut the middle part of the light bar and installed the lights and the registration number on the left side of the trailer. In addition I mounted the warning triangle on top of the lights. With this arrangement it is possible to load or unload the boat without removing the light bars. After the change I presented the trailer to the official road traffic department. They were happy under the condition, that the propeller of the boat is protected with a thick bag.

With this solution the unloading of the boat does not last more than 5 minutes and the loading might take a bit more time but not more than 10 minutes.

I intend to colour the bag with red and white strips to make it better visible to the other road users.
