Do You Even Need a Jet Ski Trailer?

If you’ve bought yourself a jet ski and do not have a jet ski trailer, you’ll need to choose from a jet ski trailer for sale. You may not need a trailer to store your jet ski.

However, you will most definitely need to tow it around. Let’s look at some of the considerations you need to weigh before you purchase your own jet ski trailer.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • What Should the Weight of Your Jet Ski Trailer Be?

If you are new to the business of buying trailers but need one to tow your single jet ski around, you will find that a basic trailer with a payload capacity of 350-500 kgs will suffice.

However, if you have friends or family members who, too, have their own PWCs and could use the towing, you might have to opt for a more advanced jet ski trailer for sale. 

  • Should Your Jet Ski Trailer be Single Axle or Double Axle?

A basic jet ski trailer for sale that can carry more than one jet ski usually contains two cargo rails in a parallel configuration for improved stability. It allows the container to carry one jet ski alongside the other.

If you require a jet ski trailer to carry multiple jet skis, you are recommended to spend a little extra on a tandem/double axle trailer. Double axle trailers offer better stability than single axle models.

They also keep the jet ski safe from incurring damage from excessive vibration while being towed on unpaved roads.

  • Will You Be Carrying an Additional Boat with You?

There are jet ski trailers that let you carry both your boat and your jet ski, so you do not have to invest in an extra boat trailer.

Several single jet ski trailers allow for carriage of both your jet ski and boat by positioning the boat at the front of the trailer and the jet ski to the back.

The only specification you need to check in this case is whether your single towing vehicle can carry the combined weight of itself, your boat, and your jet ski(s). 

  • Do You Need a Covered Jet Ski Trailer?

If you intend to be carrying more than one jet ski, you can always invest in a fully-enclosed jet ski trailer. When you buy a covered jet ski trailer for sale, you can rest assured that you are protecting it from the risk of theft and damage.

In addition, you can always use the extra storage space to lug around your lifejackets and other boating/jet skiing accessories. These trailers also often offer the facility of removing the jet ski mounts. In that case, you can always use the trailer for other tasks during the off-season.

Other Factors to Look Into

Your boat trailer or jet ski trailer for sale might be advertised as submersible. One way of verifying if it truly can stand being submerged is to check whether it is made of corrosion-resistant material.

When your boat trailer or jet ski trailer is constructed of material like hot-dipped galvanized steel, you can rest assured that it will not fall victim to rust due to the water exposure. 

You might also want your jet ski trailer to come with easy loading and off-loading facility. Some jet ski trailers are installed with a winch, which makes loading jet skis comfortable and convenient. You may also be able to avail of a heavy-duty jack stand, which would work to keep the trailer level when unhitched.
