I bought two of these initially then a third for extra parts. I have two electric bikes, a hobbicat board and a kaboat inflatable boat. See pics. Both are 12′ in length. I had to drill the hole of the attachment piece that connects to the left bike rear axel. Other than that it required no modification. In addition to the straps that come with cart I used velco from amazon:

The directions to assemble it were crap but I loved it once it was I got it all figured out. I’ve been using it for a few months now. I recommend getting a Burley Design 12.2MM Steel Hitch for about 25 bucks and its sold on amazon because the hitch that comes with this trailer sucks. You wont have to do anything extra to use the Burley hitch.
Saves Gas and Hassle!
The Paddle Boy Go Cart is great for hauling kayaks (under 15′ and 75 lbs). I don’t have to struggle to get my kayak on my car to go to nearby points – and I don’t have to use gas to get there, either. If you’ve ever used a kid/cargo trailer before, you know what it’s like to pull the extra weight. However, pulling this is more like pulling a tractor trailer because of the length (necessary for pulling something long like a kayak, so not a fault). So, that takes some getting used to. Also, if the road is really sloped on the side making one wheel significantly higher than the other, the cart might tip.

OK, the directions are not very good, but it still only took about 30 minutes to put together. Also, the plastic hitch broke fairly early on when I jack-knifed the trailer trying to get it in a good position at the marina. However, despite that, it is MUCH easier to load paddle boards and kayaks onto this trailer than onto the car, and it rolls like a dream. As to the hitch being weak, it is IF you are a bit careless with it as I was. However, I called Seattle Sports, and they sent me a replacement hitch for free the same day. I also ordered a spare one for $20 just in case. So, if you have short trips to the water and do not want to fool around with lifting boards and kayaks onto the car, this is a great choice. However, you must be careful to not be too rough with the hitch. Do not jack-knife it, or drop the bike roughly to the ground with the hitch attached. Given that caveat and the excellent service to replace the plastic part of the hitch (its Achilles’ Heel), I would recommend it because it is a blast to tow and much easier than dealing with the car. Just be gentle with the hitch, and all will be well.
Exactly what I needed!
This cart does exactly what I needed it to do! The place I SUP is about a mile from my house down a fairly rough gravel road, and I was afraid of the wear on the board transporting it in a truck. This is perfect and it’s not hard to pull at all. The trailer is slightly less sturdy than I had hoped, but it does the job. I do not think it would be suitable for much more off-road than gravel.
