I have a 205 trailer for sale. I purchased this trailer in November 2012 to use with a 91 Prostar 190 but sold the boat. The trailer is very solid with some surface rust from sitting unused. It's in overall very good shape but would need a little work to be perfect, although its more than serviceable as it. The fenders are in good condition just need cleaning and a good buff. The brakes seem to work fine but I have not had a boat on it to test with a load. Has the original Goodyear Marathon tires that are dry rotted and need to be replaced. Price is firm at $1500. Sold as is with bill of sale only.

The trailer is still available. I plan to put it on Craigslist this weekend if no one here is interested.

Bunks look to be in the same position as any 205v trailer ive seen, so this could be a cheap 205v trailer!

Hey Aric's do you know anything about this axle placement difference that I've heard about?

If there indeed is no difference in where the axles sit then I for sure call DIBS!

I need a stinkin trailer!

Should be the same as far as I know. Try and compare pics from that 01 205v thread you posted on.

Axle placement should be different. V-drive axle should be farther to the rear of the trailer than a direct drive. With the engine and trans being much heavier than any other part of the boat, it should have the axle under that part of the boat. Axle placement on a V-drive is similar to that of an outboard.

The trailer is still available. Some interest but no lookers. This is a solid trailer and IMO a good deal. Will be posted on Craigslist locally this weekend.

I thought so too, but from looking at my trailer, its looks similar. Juiced190, if you want to measure the distanc of the rear axle from the end of the trailer iI'll compare to my 205v trailer.

Sounds like a simple answer. http://www.mce.k12tn.net/units/math_measuring_tape_s.gif

That would be something nice to have to rent out... for people who want to refurb their trailer... but where to find the space.. such a great price

Excellent idea Budman! I'm willing to bet a cold Bud there's no difference. I'll measure tomorrow and post up asap.

Budman, it's 79" from the center of the axle to the end of the trailer (prop guard). I'm anxious to see what the measurement of your 205V trailer is. Thanks

I just measured my 2003 205v single axle trailer with the torsion axle. It is 78" from the back of the trailer to the center of the axle. It appears that direct drive and v-drive 205 hull trailers are the same or you have a 205v trailer. Would be interesting to hear the measurements from someone else with a direct drive 96+ 205.

Jrw160, is your trailer serialed as a PS205V trailer? My 06 x1 trailer is apprx 70" from the rear of the prop guard cross member to the middle of the tire.

Yes, mine is serialed as 205v. Mine measured 78" to the middle of the axle. If you have the torsion axle, the center of the wheel does not line up with the axle. You can see it in this picture.

I was wondering, will an '85 Stars and Stripes fit on this without modifying the trailer? I'm close and would be interested.

I'm close and would be interested.IMO, too much variance in the trailers for the 85 and what this trailer offers. I'm sure it would work (per se) but I'd just as soon use like-for-like for the 85 needs. Hull and support needs vary from that year trailer application.

$0.02.

Cloaked, thanks for the input. When you say variance, do you mean like angle of the forward v bunk and or the trailer bunks that support the hull? I've searched and searched for an exact replacement trailer for mine. Pete had found one for me, but between the 700 mile round trip and what i would need to do to the trailer (lights, guide poles) and the purchase of the trailer it wasn't worth it. I've talked to a lot of people about refurbishing it, but it really is too far gone to refurbish. My neighbor actually works for a comapny that repairs RV's and trailers and even he said the expense to just get it roadworthy again (temp fix) and refurbishing it isn't worth it. The boat is from the east coast and so its rusted all to hell to the point that the two main beams have vertical rust crakcs halfway through them. Not to mention the surge brake accuator that slides in and out when towing.

I think I am going to check it out though. If I can make it work without modification, it's be worht it.

A big 10-4

There's a blue trailer in the Cincy area for <$600. It has been refurbed but he stopped short of welding on the V-cradle.... Not sure why... I have seen it on CL several times over the last few months.
