Considering The Cost of a New Jet Ski Trailer

Prices on jet ski trailers vary from dealership to dealership because dealers can buy a lot of them at one time. Buying in bulk saves them money and those savings are passed on to you. Prices on jet ski trailers go up every year and trailers don’t change much, so it’s a good idea to buy now instead of waiting.

Trailers come in singles, doubles, and fours. This translates into the ability to carry one ski, two skis, and four skis. Jet ski trailers are made of aluminum, steel, and galvanized. The cheapest trailers are the painted steel ones. Aluminum is the most expensive and the lightest. Also, it won’t rust, making it your best bet if you are riding in salt water.

A new single jet ski trailer will cost $800-$1500. A double jet ski trailer is from $2,000-$3,500, with the 4-place trailer rounding out at $7,000-$9,000. Jet trailers do not go on sale and they aren’t thrown into the deal when you buy a new jet ski.

If you are considering a used trailer on Craigslist, check the tires for dry rot and the frame for rust and broken bolts. Put your eyes on the axle too. If it’s bending or bowing, don’t purchase the trailer. A used aluminum single trailer should cost about $500, depending on its condition.

You will need a few things to make sure your trailer is road ready. A brake light adapter is one of the most important items to have before hitting the road. A tongue lock is another big deal. For peace of mind, a spare tire and spare tire holder are good investments.
