I found this trailer for sale and was wondering if anyone could tell me what boat it is for. I am looking for a galvanized trailer for a X-1 and this looks close. All the seller knows is the boat was a 2002 and around 21 ft. Its at a repair place that does vinyl and fiberglass repair.

Galvanized trailer - saltwater use.. I would get them wheels off and check out backing plates and bearings.. brake lines..

What's with the boat in the bushes...lol

The bow support looks a bit wide - could be just the angle.

With the hull rollers, I'd say your X1 wouldn't fit. You have 3 tracking fins on your boat, do you not?

I am in the hunt for a X1. I am going to be using it in brackish water so I need a galvanized trailer. This trailer is under 1k and local was worth checking out....even before I get the boat...lol

I was hoping this was a 205v trailer and would work. Sounds like I have my answer with the tracking fins...Thank you

Is the capacity plate still legible? If you can find the serial number that should tell you what boat it's built for.

Looks like someone threw MC fenders on a generic galvanized trailer. There should be uprights. If they aren't there for being broken off I would have serious questions.
I could be wrong.

Looks identical to the galvanized Mastercraft single-axle trailer under my Maristar, except for the guide posts. The front stop, actuator, winch, jack, brake lights, rollers, bunk boards, even what appear to be 6-bolt wheels (meaning the 5200 pound axle). The v-block appears to be spread wider than normal.

There appear to be holes in the correct location in the fender for the guide posts like I have, but this trailer has a different style of guide posts - probably better, because the ones on my trailer are always coming loose and needing to be tightened.

I'd say this trailer was for a Maristar 210 or an X-10 or similar boat.

I agree - geneeric trailer... IDK... I see its TUBULAR design, so if they galvenized it after salt water use, it defeats the purpose... It will be rusting from the inside out...

I'd stay away from it... The savings could cost you more than u think...

Thanks for the help! If I get the serial number I will post it in case this trailer can help someone else out.

It doesn't look like an 02, they went to fiberglass fenders then IIRC. My 205v trailer also has just 2 bunks and only the roller in the front. At the back, the bunks should flatten to be almost completly horizontal to fit a 205v/X1/X2. Do you mind me asking where in VA you found the trailer?
