Rhino kayak loader and/or trailer options
« on: March 03, 2017, 01:10:04 PM »
I recently bought a new 4runner which sits pretty high and will make loading/unloading a little challenging.  Has anyone tried the Rhino kayak loader or anything similar?

I'm also considering a small trailer like from Malone or Yakima.

Thanks in advance for input and suggestions.

Sorry for the delay. I too bought a new 4runner. I was looking at the hulavator rack by thule to rooftop but ended up building my own rack on a 4x7 utility trailer I purchased from TSC. It was cheaper building my own rack on the trailer than buying a purposed built trailer for kayaks. There are some deals at Harbor Freight where you can buy trailers but you have to assemble them. I thought of going that route however I felt the already built utility trailer was more durable.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I was also considering a utility trailer but hadn't looked at TSC.  Do you have any pics of what you built?

Before putting it away for the winter I took a few pictures of what I ended up doing for a trailer. It's aluminum and folding from Northern Tool. Worked well. It might be for sale in the spring if I find the boat I want.  :)
