Kayak + Utility trailers?

On my TJ I had a Kargo Master roof rack and all the Yakima stuff for my kayaks. Now on my Unlimited, I really just want a trailer so I don't have to deal with all of the negatives of roof racks again. I'd also like something that would double as a utility trailer so I can use it for more than just my boats. And it would be nice to be able to fold it up or stand it up on a wall in the garage.

I currently have 2 15' kayaks and would like to carry up to 4 of that size.

I found this, which I like, but it's not much a utility trailer. But it is nice and light, good for the boats, and would store on a wall in my garage over the winter, which is a plus:

Also found the Sierra 4x4 trailers, which are really nice, and I like that they can have the enclosed extra storage and are off-road trailers, but they're $$$$ and I'm not sure the tongue will really be long enough:

Also found the Kendon folding utility trailer:

Kendon Industries, Inc. - Stand-Up™ Utility Trailer - UTV/ATV Trailer

So does anyone have a great solution for a good kayak trailer that can double as a utility trailer? I'd love to see what folks have bought or built...

I had a Lange rack on the TJ, which of course didnt fit the JK.
Picked up a 4x6 Tractor supply trailer off Craigslist for $150.
Had a friend add 3 feet to the drawbar.
Put a couple cross bars with Ebay J style antler carriers.
We carry 2 - Pungo 120's

Thought I had a picture but it must be on my work computer.

Found it. Longer Cross bars and the Stackers that hold the boats on edge you could put four on it. Unbolt the cross bars and we used it to move my daughter.

Cheap 6x12 works great for me. I only carry one canoe + gear, but I also haul hay, 4 wheeler, mower or anything else I need.

I built a 4X6 trailer with a wood rack. I can haul gear, beer and have room for my fish fryer.

Can get the pics to post!

Any reason why you put it that way and not upside down ? Just curious. :-)
