Post-2018 170 MONTAUK: Trailer Length Over All

Postby altouchet@yahoo.com » Sat Oct 23, 2021 9:27 am

Give me an accurate total length of the stock KARAVAN trailer with tongue folded to aft of the engine in the tilt-down position for the 2018- 2021 170 Montauk [for determining fit in a garage].

There is a [specification for the trailer overall length] on the [WHALER.COM] website, but the specification is for “engine up.” My garage is slightly smaller than average, so the fit will be close.

I believe the Boston Whaler web site (http://www.whaler.com/) is the best source for information on the current 170 Montauk. The site should provide very accurate information on the boat's dimensions including the trailer.

I failed to read your query fully. The Karavan web site may have the trailer dimensions but as I remember my last Karavan folding tongue trailer the bow of the boat extended beyond the trailer tongue hinge. The Montauk sits high on the trailer and you may need to measure your garage overhead dimensions to ensure vertical clearance. If vertical clearance is sufficient it will probably require an owner to provide the length measurement you need.

[The garage] height is ok. The [trailer length plus engine] is my worry. Thanks.
