An ad has been paid and will show up soon in the classifieds, but here is some more information as I know some were looking for stacking trailers lately.

My cats have all run away from home. I am selling my Trailex Double Stack. Stored indoors its entire life. It was set up for an F17 and Mystere 4.3 but you can pick your boat set. You can load the top and bottom separately. Bottom will carry and load an 8-6 wide boat without removing the top boat. As you can see in the pictures it has one set of big foot cradles, one set of double rollers, one set of single rollers and one set of v-bottom guides. There is also a rubber top to carry some extras, like a Hobie kayak. Has a double mast stand, double cat trax carrier, but no double rainbows. Has tongue wheel, bearing buddies, LED lights, and new wheels and tires including spare with just a few hundred miles on them.

The boat and sail box are not included and were sold separately with another trailer.

Price: $1700, new price is just shy of $3000 without the guides, rollers and cradles and cat trax rack.

Anyone interested in buying just the double stack hardware? Might want to split the purchase.

How can you put a 8'6" wide boat on the bottom and have it still be legal? 102" is the legal limit, 2 inches on each side would put it 4" over the legal limit? no?

There you go getting all technical and stuff...I'm pretty sure he didn't say anything about "legal". grin

Personally, I'm going to build my next double stack rack this way...my trailer is already wider than the boat and it has never been a problem.

The trailer is titled in Ohio as an original 2000 Trailex 418HC and as such is taxed at that weight. The double stack kit is 2006. Tires and rims are 2009. I no longer own a cat so I am not attending any regattas. Like a motorhome with an awning hanging off the side, only the uprights exceed the 8-6" width on the back. The convenience is absolutely worth the very remote risk.

As far as capacity, some have asked on the phone... This is best suited for a 17-18 on the bottom and something lighter on the top such as an F16, H16, H14 or M4.3. Some have towed two F17's on this same design without issues. Might need to add stronger set of leaf springs for that.

Well I'm telling you now. We all go for the parties. Any sailing is a bonus.

No boat required. Someone is always looking for crew.

I would love to buy this but I would have to sell my cat to pay for it :P
We'll be in touch if I can miraculously procure the money.

I bought the trailer from Mike. Thanks Mike!

Only problem is a Hobie 16 won't fit on the bottom. The top crossbar is too short for the front beam of the H16 to fit underneath. This is only a problem for the rear trailer crossbar because the front beam doesn't actually go under the front trailer crossbar.

I need about 4 inches to make it work.

My ideas so far:
1)move the rear trailer uprights to the top of the bottom rear trailer crossbars, instead of the sides - about 2.5 inches
2)place a short extrusion piece between the crossbars to raise the bar up another 2.5"

the double rollers are the same height as the regular rollers so there isn't any height savings there - the cradles are even taller

I could load the boat on the trailer without the rollers and some carpet on the aluminum but thats a hassle.

Any thoughts? I'm stumped short of ordering longer pieces from trailex ($$).

Sounds like the clearance is only an issue when you are loading and unloading the boat from the trailer. Can you remove the top cross bar when loading and unloading the H16 on the botton. Reinstall only when doublestacking.

Another option - forget the H16 and go for an F16 or F18!

This is an option- uninstall the rear section for the majority of the time and only install when double stacking. It isn't possible to only remove the rear crossbar though because it gives support to the two rear uprights and the long bar that goes from front to rear.

But....it would be great if I could come up with a way to not have to take apart the trailer just to use the double stack.

Thought about that too, but won't it stick out the back too much?

Maybe move the rear crossbar and all of the associated uprights forward on the trailer, thus allowing the boat to sit further forward on the trailer? Then load it backwards.

This would shorten the distance between rollers/cradles. Any issues with that? Too short and you lose stability, right?

I've tried putting the boat backwards on a trailer before:
