OMC custom-designed, Evinrude - Johnson trailers

OMC was one of the first suppliers to offer a completely integrated (factory-rigged) package, consisting of boat, trailer and propulsion unit. The OMC trailers were only designed to work with the unique "gull-wing" tri-hull. However, our 1966 Evinrude Sportsman was originally sold with a 1967 Little Dude, of Ft. Worth, Texas, tilt-bed trailer.

The OMC trailers had several innovative features, including extremely robust build quality, optional surge-actuated disc brakes, TorFlex, rubber-isolated independent suspension, and crank-assisted tilt beds. However the Evinrude - Johnson trailers did have some drawbacks: Notably a narrow axle track width, and rather small, by today's standards, 9-inch (14/16/17-ft boats) or 10-inch (19-ft boats) diameter wheels, and relatively poor hull support via minimum roller coverage.
