  • Such a thing as a good used trailer?

    My trailer is rusting aggressively now.

    Are there any reputable used trailer dealers or should I look to go new if a fabrication shop tells me the side rails are going to be a problem too?

    My .02 Even if all the current trailer needs is a paint job, the work involved to do it properly will cost half what a whole new one will. In the big scheme of things trailers are not all that expensive. Unless you can find one specifically for your boat in decent shape for a big discount off new I'd say it isn't worth the hassle and compromise. A nice trailer for a 19' boat probably in 4k range.
    If you plan to keep it awhile it may be worth it. Bald Mike can set you up I'd see what he can offer.
    Tell me asshole - What's your fair share of everything I've worked for??? Please join me in starving and beating the govt back to it's honeymoon physique.

      I rebuilt my trailer for around 1K. Rhino lined it, replaced carpet on bunks, added a swing tongue, and new LED lights. I have a thread in this forum.

        Rusting on the inside, out?

        Could be worse if that's the case?

          I see no issues with used trailers. But you will have to stick money into it.
