Hi, im looking for info on buying a trailer for a 22 Sisu. I'm thinking with a keel the trailer would need to be rigged for it. Is there a dealer that specializes in them? I'm in Rhode Island. Would there be a dealer that could outfit a trailer to fit the boat? Thanks for reading. Joe

I have an EZ Loader version similar to Eric T's Loadrite that came with my Sisu. The previous owner (original) purchased it from Thomson Marine in East Bridgewater, MA. It was specifically ordered for the Sisu. PM me if you want. I can take a couple pics. Also try the Sisu 22 group on Facebook. You'll need to join the group but it will be worth it.

Hi,

We were concerned about fit given the small keel. Ultimately purchased a Venture trailer model VATB 5225 with bunks. Works great and fits well. We trailer up and down the East coast so we elected to get radial tires and disc brakes for all four wheels.

Our boat is a Rosborough built sea skiff 22 outboard (same as Sisu 22 now built by Eastern).

Get bunks if you buy new. With the plastic strips on top of the bunks, the boat will slide just as easy as rollers. The bunks provide better support and are easier to maintain.

My uncles older Rf-246 with the deep keel was on a conventional trailer with built up bunks and UHMW poly skids under the keel. Worked well other than you had to jack the nose way up to drain.

Just realized, this was an old thread.
MaArcher, the trailer I posted would fit a 28’ boat and has 6000 lb axels with disk brakes on all four wheels. 22’ trailer would be considerably less expensive.

I have no affiliation. Here’s a link to the company. If I had to guess I would say that the price doesn’t include brakes. I could be wrong. It was 1k more to get disk surge brakes on all four wheels on my trailer.

How did they get it adjusted to your boat or did you have to do a lot of adjusting once you got it? Thanks
