    I have not been able to get much information on it besides the price ($1699), a picture (http://www.northforkoutdoors.com/AccessoriesSpecifications.html), and the answer below:

    "Yes, our custom pontoon boat trailer works very nicely. It is hugely popular. It is 12 ft long 5 ft wide and has waterproof lights and carpeted bunks to cradle the pontoons"

    From the look of it (which isn't very much that I can see there) you can find just as nice of trailer here locally cheaper (or even in Oregon). I know the old flatbed raft trailers weren't much more then that, and multi use on top of it.

    How long do you think one will have to wait for the tires to be shipped, lol?!

    I can not resist wondering what the substitute tires would be.

    You could get yourself a new Karavan KBE-1250-46 bunk trailer at Cableas or a local dealer for approx $650.
    Works very well as a pontoon, raft or small drift boat trailer and won't break the bank.

    Personally, I just don't see spending $1600 + for a small trailer, when a guy can build a good one for $500-$600. Find a neighbor with a welder.

    This was going to be my suggestion. Add another $100 at most to modify the bunks and you're set. I'd leave it full length but the tongue could easily be cut back to decrease overall length. I added a motorcycle rack to mine (King Trailer, though). Really simple project which I did for my Super Puma.

    The thought of receiving a 3rd wheel or a pair of mags sent by mistake does have a certain appeal ;)
