What trailer do you have and did they make it a staker or is that something you did?
I had a small shop do the work, he was a retired welder/sheet metal worker, he designed it and built it, I since added a few things but total cost was around $5500, trailer and lift system, cheaper and lighter than the stacker trailers you see for sale, it has a winch installed in front and cable goes down to four cables and pulleys under trailer and than up the poles to lower and raise the boat, trailer becomes a boat trailer when Jeep is removed and I launch the boat with trailer and Jeep while RV stays at campground.


Trailer was built just for the TJ Jeep size and a small boat, did not want a larger trailer converted, wanted trailer size no bigger than flat towing the Jeep, makes it easier to get around this way..

To your answer can you use a Jet ski/small boat trailer with stacker trailer, YES but than you have 2 trailers to deal with and loading a trailer onto a trailer is a hassle, more easy just to have 1 trailer but to each there own..

More pics below, see the winch in front under the diamond plate.

Very creative and functional. Do you have any photos with it in boat trailer mode?

I know what you mean about loading a trailer on a trailer.

X 2 on creativity... Excellent idea! U

Yes I figure it would be a pita to have another trailer to mess with, really cool setup... Never thought of using the trailer to put the boat in the water...

Here is some pics of boat down on trailer and the winch/cable system, it launches off the trailer just like a normal boat trailer but when loading I have one advantage and when boat is on bunks I can raise boat out of the water before pulling trailer up boat ramp, winch is remote control.

Also makes it nice to work on boat or motor, I can have boat down flat on trailer or half way up lift system and work on bottom of boat, no need to crawl under on ground or even bend over if I don't want to..



The orange cones are for my dogs, they piss on the cones and not my tires on trailer or Jeep.

We had our 8.5' x 20' x 9' tall Car Carrier delivered yesterday. We're full-timers and don't expect to hit the road again for another seven weeks - I'll post a photo when we're hooked-up and ready for the road.

Here's our setup. Not the newest, probably not the coolest, but I bet it's the only one dragging a good ol' wood paneled Grand Wagoneer behind it!. We love it, got a steal of a deal on it, afforded us many good memories so far and was what we could afford.

This is what we take down to Moab every year to spend a couple of weeks as a family Jeepin', camping and enjoying some fun wheeling and time together as a family. We've had the three wee ones prepped for this before they even saw the light of day.

Nice, clean setup you have there. Need more pics of the FSJ though.

They don't have to many (or any) up here to look at ..... So would you mind driving by here this week sometime 05 American Eagle so I can have a closer look at it ?

Juuust Kidding of coarse, I could not afford one anyway but they are nice man, I'm sure you'll enjoy that for a long time to come.

Best rgards,

Well, some of the super cool ones of us wheeling I haven't downloaded from last year yet....., but here are a few more. It's a really fun rig. It's gone from total stock 1 year ago, to a really fun and capable family wheeling rig! Lots of fun to drive. Here's a few more pics:
