The trailer has low durability and low center of gravity, meaning it is very agile and can bounce around under the right circumstances when driving at high speed. It also has a tendency to unhitch from the vehicle on hills. When the trailer is equipped with a boat, it poses a threat in cornering as the boat tends to cause the trailer to tipple over, due to the lack of suspension. The player can also stand on top of a moving boat trailer without the risk of falling off.[1]

Being a trailer, it cannot be driven, however it does feature its own handling line.

  • Vehicles.meta indicates that the Seminole, Rancher XL and BeeJay XL were at one point able to tow this trailer, however these vehicles lack the tow hitch dummy to do so. It is also likely the Bodhi and Chernobog were able to tow this trailer, as they feature tow-hitches but lack any trailers in their vehicles.meta trailer data.[2]
  • Sometimes, while playing the Humane Raid - EMP heist setup in GTA Online, Dinghies may spawn on the back of trailers being towed by Bobcats and Sadlers. This seems to be a glitch, as the Dinghies aren't correctly fitted on the trailers, as they cannot fit entirely.
  • The APC cannot tow this trailer despite the files suggesting otherwise.
