Would a 1999 prostar (95-97 prostar hull) fit on a 2001 x-star trailer?

If you are looking for an exact fit, this is not it.

If you are cool with some modifications (winch post will need to move) and maybe some bunk alignment, then you could make it work.

If you are just looking for a trailer to put the boat on for maintenance of your trailer or for off-season storage, but do not plan on towing any distance, then the trailer will work just fine for you.

The raw intake, prop and skegs shouldn't be issues - I went from a prostar to a 2004 X2 (same as current X1) and had to spread my dock bunks out quit a bit - but you are going smaller boat to larger trailer, reverse of me. Can you test run it at a lake? The key would be to take it out VERY slowly, make sure you get it centered, see what you got. I would also think the most important part would be to measure the width of the boat at the rear and make 1000% sure that width doesn't fall through the bunks anywhere near where the back of the boat will sit when properly loaded. That would be a nightmare - likely not an issue as my X1 trailer bunks flare very little.

Thanks for the opinions. Just a local trailer for sale and thought I could pick it up instead of sanding and painting mine. I'll pass on it

My prostar trailer flared quite a bit more than my X1, so I think it would be ok - the X1 is just ultimately wider in back. We had to move the dock bunks only because we had to redistribute the weight of the new boat over the lift better.

It will fit!!! your bunks will stick out approx 1 foot. Same bottom on all the boats
The 205/X1/OLD X2 are all the same hull. They where born out of the 1995-1997 PS 190

That still works for the 99 190 hull?

If you look at his first post I think that he means a Sportstar which would be based on the 95-97 hull

If you decide to purchase and move the winch stand, I can give you a companies information (downtown Orlando) that did some welding for me on my trailer, cost was very reasonable.

I think the axle is farther back to better balance a v-drive, so your boat on that trailer will give you extra weight on the tongue. Even moving the winch post back a bit will not totally eliminate that extra hitch weight, but if your tow vehicle can handle it that's ok.

How far do you tow each time?

I just thought he was confused.
