But if you don't have any building experience, don't know how to weld, or don't have the ability to cut metal or wood, then you may be out of luck. Even if you do have all those skills, it can be rather time consuming to fabricate your own kayak trailer. That's why we created this post to show examples of kayak trailers that were built using Kee Klamp fittings and pipe.
