The Towee Pro Trailer is built with the same attention to quality, durability and performance as our skiffs. Built in house, our trailers are designed for the owner who may be launching from a bridge abutment where there is no ramp one day and running cross country at high speed down the interstate the next - for years at a time.
When we started the company, we were told by the experts that no one would pay to put a quality trailer under a small skiff. The market was ruled by thin rectangular tubing frames, the cheapest lights, Chinese bearings, plastic fenders, cheap rollers and tiny 12 inch wheels with tires that couldn't be trusted for reliable interstate travel and certainly not for repeated use over rough roads. We knew that offering our customers a high quality trailer was a little more expensive on the front end and that we would even lose a few sales because we didn't offer a cheap, disposable trailer but we also knew it was the right thing to do.
Based on experiences gained from years of traveling cross country with boats and the owner's family's three generations in the trailer business, our trailers start with a beefy frame of open C channel - not thin rectangular tubing that can hold water and facilitate rust. Next we add a thick, industrial grade galvanizing, true marine axles by Dexter and vaulted no maintenance hubs. You wont find any plastic fenders here - all of our fenders are steel or aluminum and thick enough for a full sized (or even oversized) adult to walk on. Our sealed LED lighting is of the highest quality and ride in rugged light boxes that protect them from all the things that just seem to jump behind you at the ramp. And these are just a few of the standard features. We also offer fully welded aluminum trailers.
And we don't just build them for ourselves, Towee Trailers have become the choice of other quality builders as well. We even build replacement drift boat trailers and trailers for other brands of skiffs and jet sleds. We even build full custom trailers. Please give us a call for all of your trailer needs - we'd be glad to help.
We've all seen them, the recent parade of inexpensively made small boats, usually one of the many canoe/boat hybrids, all dolled up to look "just like a Towee" at an astoundingly low price down at Joe's Boat Sales. These boats are generally designed, built and sold by people who's occupation is turning chop sprayed fiberglass into a product at the lowest cost rather than by professional watermen and fine boat builders. This lack of understanding of the needs of their customers can lead to some very interesting offerings.
Case in point are the small skiffs that have shown up lately with huge center consoles and steering wheels. These are normally being promoted by a dealer who is trying to catch the eye of the new or uneducated buyer by offering what appears to be "all the features of a big bay boat in a small package". This can be cute - if you're 4. My granddaughter has an amazing battery powered mini dune buggy that she rides around the yard but when you're an adult angler who needs a piece of equipment that works - not so much. These folks are doing their customers a grave disservice.
In over 30 years of running small skiffs from Idaho to Key West, we've learned that the small technical skiff is an amazing tool but the trade off is real estate. Space is precious on a small skiff so why in the world would you plop down a huge console and destroy both valuable space and fishing access just to be able to have a steering wheel like a big boat? It makes no sense when tiller steering is available and takes up almost no space - the tiller folds right up out of the way. A small side console or coffin box with a grab handle - sure - but a center steering console with a wheel on a small technical skiff should be relegated to toys - not Towees (see what we did there?).
In all seriousness, our point is that we wont ever do something that is bad for our clients just to make a sale. If you're ready for a hand built, lifetime warrantied, custom skiff of your own, now is a great time to give us a call and get you started down the road to your next adventure. See you on the water.
