Whether you’re looking for a large boat trailer or small boat trailer, LoadRite Canada can help. It’s the same with utility trailers; we can offer you one that has an 8-foot long deck or double that at 16-foot.

So you might be thinking, “I should get the biggest boat trailer or utility trailer I can afford. After all, I might always need more space.” It’s a common thought, and we’d certainly like to sell you something more expensive. But there are times when you don’t need to buy the absolute biggest boat or utility trailer available. As Steve Martin said back in 1977, let’s get small!


First of all, safety should be your primary concern. Not all boat trailers are meant to carry every boat. If a boat is too small, it might not be able to reach the spacing between the bunks, or a small shift could cause problems. So while it might be funny to see a 14-foot boat on a 36-foot boat trailer, it’s really not a good idea.

If you’re looking for the best small boat trailer, the experts at LoadRite Canada will measure your boat (or look up the stats with you) to find out exactly how long it is and which small boat trailers can accommodate it.

Back Roads

The best small boat trailer is the one that allows you to get your boat where you want it. So if your boat trailer is too large, you’re not going to be able to take it on the back roads that get you to your favorite fishing spot. For instance, if you have a 3-axle boat trailer, it’s certainly not going to handle bumpy back roads nearly as well.

At LoadRite, we love talking about boats. When you come looking for a small aluminum or steel boat trailer, we’ll be asking you about how far you’ll be taking your boat and what kind of roads you’re most likely to drive on. And speaking of driving…

Easier To Drive

In general, a small boat trailer is easier to drive. First of all, you don’t have to have as powerful a vehicle to tow it; upgrading your truck at the same time you upgrade your trailer can be exponentially more expensive! Second, it’s so much easier making turns with a small utility or boat trailer, so getting around town is a snap.

The same goes for utility trailers. Someone who owns a single riding mower for their landscaping business might be looking for the smallest utility trailer available so that they can park in more places in a neighborhood.

Easier To Store

While some people have tons of space in which to park a trailer, others are restricted in how much space they can take up. Having a smaller boat or utility trailer means that it’s a lot easier to fit alongside a house or in a garage.
