I guess I never even thought of just taking the motor off and leaving it next to the boat in the bed! That might make the best sense for my situation!

My Momarsh Trailer, its a 5x18 trailer! It hauls 4 boats (2 Momarsh Fatboy DPs and 2 Momarsh Fatboys) 2 stump-jumper mud motors, 4-5 dozen duck decoys, gas can, mojos, and other misc. gear. The 2 small boxes upfront are storage boxes, each one you lift off the top and inside sits the motor and handle but the longtail portion sits outside the box. Love this trailer, this is my 2nd one I've built and wouldn't change a thing!

The only reason I had to extend my jet ski trailer was to get the motor and transom under the rails. If you don't have a motor stick a red flag on the end of it and call it good.

Had a buddy weld up a ladder style rack and bolted it in to my topper. It's kind of a circus getting it up there solo when I'm gassed after a long day and gas mileage in the little truck definitely takes a hit but I don't have to worry about storing a trailer.

last year i just tossed my layout in the bed of my comanche (even shorter than a standard pickup bed) and away i went. my boat only weighs 56lbs though so i can pretty much pick it up one handed and throw it in.

The reason the motors don't stay on the boats is because half the places I hunt there's no ramp, it's much easier to unload the boats then set the motors on after they are in the water. The motor comes on/off the transom by an easy male/female insert!

I use an old golf cart trailer with an extended tongue. This is for a 17+ long canoe that I use a small motor on. Started out with a double wide snmobile trailer and axle got bent. I love this set up. I back right into the water (have greaseable bearings) and no lifting needed. Could easily make it a double decker if you wanted to. It was very easy to get tongue extended. It is also tiltable.
