I have no affiliation with this seller, just happened to see this trailer parked in someones front yard. Seller says it is a 1993 but doesn't know what model MC it was made for. He is asking $850 and it is located 1/2 hour west of Olympia, WA. The telephone number on the sign is a 360 area code.

I need this trailer badly. I wonder what it will cost to ship from wa to al. Probably a fortune. Does it have a tongue? Looks like the wiring harness is missing too.

It could be a 93, but my bunks dont look like that... If the tongue is gone, I have to wonder if it didnt rust off (from the inside out) and been cleaned up.

I guess the other possibility is it was stolen. If I were considering purchasing this I would ask about the history.

I was thinking maybe he pulled the tongue off to prevent it from being stolen. It's a pretty quick and easy preventative measure, that's for sure. Not a lot of people carrying around an exra swing away tongue specific to MC's. 8p

Don't kid yourself..........a person could take that with a piece of rope to tie it to a hitch ball. Locks only keep the honest people honest.

Not a bad idea to pull the tongue though.

Looks closer at the pics. To me it does not appear to have a break away design.

It looks cut off, like when my GFs trailer tongue snapped...

My 94 for my 205 only has one set of bunks. I would assume that a 190 trailer would be the same as mine. I would buy it too if it were closer. Not a bad price at all even without the tongue. That just gives you an opportunity to make it a swinging tongue.

Correct - one set of bunks for 93/94. In fact, I have never seen that set up on a 90s trailer.

Provided the trailer is usable, a good buy. otherwise, it's a very expensive way to get an axle, wheels, trailer posts, and other cheap parts

The fenders alone (if in good shape) could fetch $300+ to the right person. There's almost half your money right there :)

Oh yeah if you're patient. After my GF bought a new trailer, I scavenged all the parts off her old one. Fenders, boat buddy, guide posts, winch, etc etc etc

I think I solved the riddle. This is a 93 ProStar Trailer. Who ever re did the bunks did not use a solid 12 foot 2x6, they split them up with a gap between. If you look closely, the brackets would line up for a 12 foot board. I would suggest also going over the entIre trailer with a small ball-peen hammer and listen for dead spots. Especially by the front, if it had been grinded off. If solid, this is a nice trailer.

I also called the seller, it has a removable tongue, and no salt water use. I would buy it if it wasn't for shipping costs.

I have a 190 trailer from the 2001 Holestar donor. I found a better trailer for my 209 in AL so I need to move this to get what I need I'm in no hurry right now i still have a hull to determine what I'm doing with.

That sure looks like a fair deal coming from a 94 ps190 owner.
