Product Description

This trailer was super easy to assemble due to the well thought out packaging. It’s compact and light allowing storage to be easy. I don’t really use the fold up option as I fish year around but I do like the fact it does just in case I’m going out of town and want all my vehicles in the garage. It pulls great behind both my dually and my jeep. I would/do def recommend this trailer to any looking for a quality kayak trailer. John C. Kayak Fishing Pro, TN


The Smartest Way to Haul Your Kayaks (and Store Your Trailer)


Now you can store your kayak trailer without taking up the space of an extra car in your garage or driveway.  Bulldog Folding Trailers fold up so small, storage is a breeze:  Just wheel it into a corner of your garage, drop it into the bed of your truck, or take it apart and keep it in the trunk of your car. The Folding Kayak trailer with 78″ crossbars is the ideal for hauling wider fishing kayaks side-by-side or multiple kayaks with Stacker or J style carriers.
The patented multi-axis design is the envy of other so-called folding trailers. Those other trailers merely stand upright and shorten in length, they don’t fold lengthwise like Bulldog Folding Trailers. As the world’s only true folding trailer, no disassembly is required:  You can literally fold or unfold it in 60 seconds.  And less time futzing with your trailer means more time having fun.

Ingenious Design Makes Loading and Unloading Safe and Easy

The Folding Kayak Trailer comes equipped with heavy duty crossbars with stainless steel fasteners for easy loading and unloading.  In as little as five minutes, you can load up your kayak or canoe and drive away with your favorite toy to your favorite location.

UnfoldingInnovation in Every Inch

At just 148 pounds, the Bulldog Folding Kayak Trailer is easy to handle.

But don’t let the light weight fool you.  Each Bulldog Folding Kayak Trailer is made of high-strength steel that’s hot dipped galvanized inside and out, and all fasteners are 304 stainless steel for extra yield and tensile strength.

All of this means that Bulldog Folding Trailers can withstand towing speeds and distances equal to that of traditional rigid trailers, and still fit into the corner of your garage when not in use.
