MALIBU BUILT TRAILERS

As you back the trailer down the ramp on the way to load your boat, use the depth alarm to tell you when the bunks are at the perfect depth to load the boat. No need to yell to the person in the boat or play a guessing game. Load seamlessly every single time.

Electric over hydraulic brake

Option up your braking system to let you have full, adjustable controls of where you engage brakes on your car and trailer.

Hand Brake

When the trailer is unhitched, there are 2 easy-to-engage hand brakes inside of the frame that ensure your trailer isn’t going to go anywhere when it’s not supposed to.
