Jet Ski Trailer Dealers, Local: Better Get Skiing Soon On Your SeaDoo PWC or Jetski... Time's a Wastin'!
Your Search For The Right Jet Ski Trailer
There are many people around the world right now enjoying the benefits of having their own personal watercraft or Jet Ski. These marvelous machines are so much fun to drive on the lakes and waterways and they are so maneuverable and fast, that it’s probably a good bet that everyone on earth would get one if they could! I’ve personally had a Sea Doo GTX 4-Tec for the last eight years now and I can attest to how fantastic they are and extremely enjoyable!
If you own a beach home or waterside condo or apartment that has a private slip for your jet ski, then you really have it made because you can just walk downstairs in the morning or whenever you are ready and lower your PWC down into the water from its lift, or just drive it off the floating dock or ramp that it is sitting on. That is the ideal scenario, and the one that most people dream about, but the reality for most is that we will have to drive our personal watercraft from its storage location to a boat ramp where we will put it into the water, take off the jet ski cover, and then drive it back out when we are done. That means we will need a trailer to accomplish that task, and there are many different makes and models available.
For most people, it’s not really an issue because if you purchase a jet ski or personal watercraft because whether it’s new or used, it will usually come with its own trailer. Occasionally, you might find a jet ski for sale that has always been sitting in a slip, ramp, or floating dock, and there never was a trailer available or it was somehow lost or sold through the years. In that case, you’ll need to find a trailer that fits your jet ski and is a good match.
It’s usually best to try and check with a local brand name shop in your area for your PWC, meaning that if you have a Sea Doo brand then find the local Sea Doo dealership and see if they have trailers that will fit your particular model of ski. If you have a particularly older model, it’s possible that they won’t sell anything that will hold it securely or fit it. I’ve seen some very models from the 80’s still around on the lakes, and can’t believe they are still operating! For something like that, I would venture a guess that dealers might not have anything available for them, and you may have to check further. There are also many generic trailer companies out there, and you should be able to do a quick Google search to find something like “Sam’s Trailer Hitches and Sales”…

They will usually add hitches to your vehicle, repair existing trailers and hubs, and also sell new trailers. In fact, some companies will actually make new trailers that will fit to your jet ski right on the premises, so if they can’t find anything to match or don’t have something in stock, they may very well be able to build one for you right there. Generic companies like these may actually be preferred over brand name dealerships, because they are generally lower cost and may also provide faster service.
Another option is to go to a junkyard to see if they have anything sitting around that is not being used, or if you are mechanical then you might try your hand at building one yourself! For most of us, that’s not really an option, but there are some people that are good with things like that and they may be able to build one for much less than they could purchase a trailer.
With all the different brand name jet skis and personal watercrafts available like Sea Doo, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Polaris, and many others, you should be able to find a trailer that will fit your model exactly without much of a problem. I wish you luck in your search, and if you haven’t already purchased a jet ski or are just now thinking about it, times a ‘wasting! Get out and enjoy life more, you’ll be surprised at how much fun you can actually have out on the water! See you on the lakes and waterways of the world!
