The boat is the trailer.... Carry the quad in the boat.

Go and have a look at this Trademe auction for a 13 foot Seabird dinghy on a trailer that can also take a quad bike.

Think it may be the sort of thing you are thinking of.

Hi thanks for the replies
I'm looking for some light weight that once I take the quad off I cam hook the trailer on
To the quad and head off down the beach

I doubt a trailer that will hold a dingy and a quad will be light weight
best bet could be a car trailer long enough to hold the quad with a small trailer with dingy on it

Or a conventional trailer big enough to take Quad etc. Perhaps a bit longer to incorporate a lockable tool box for the outboard and equip.

Have a look at some of the piccies from Australia for more of an idea, very common over there.

A frame for the tinny to sit on upside down and a very simple A frame device to tow the tinny on. Needn't be too flash, wheelbarrow sized wheels, make it so that it folds down and the wheels removable for stowing.
