The 1998 Pro Star 205 is listed in the manual as 2,690 lbs dry. Add a couple of hundred pounds for fuel and a couple of hundred more for gear. No idea on the weight of the monster tower, but don't forget to add that.

Thanks,
I have no manual :o so around #3200 ought to be a safe number. Right now my boat is sitting on a Magnum trailer built for a 97 bu and "it dont fit very well" I found a place in Clear Lake that builds Tech-Sun trailers that I hope will be in my price range. hope to have a new trailer soon

You can get a .pdf copy of your boat's owner's manual in the MC Knowledge Center (http://www.mastercraft.com/index.php?znfAction=CustomerCare)
The 1998 SD 205 is listed in there.

:rant: $3,000 for a Tech-Sun I don't understand why these things are so much! It's just a dam trailer :rant:

Price of steel is way up. I heard (did not confirm) that a Dorsey single axle with brakes was running $3,500.

Which part, that the price of steel is way up, or that a single axle Dorsey with brakes is $3,500? I assume the former.

Price of steel wayyy up
I've heard it all when it comes to explanations. Mainly the economy being on a run in addition to india and china eating up supplies...

I blame the Hoover administration.

I think a dual axel mc trailer with brakes is like 5500.00 maybe more!!!
makes some of these 88 and 89 prostars look like a huge bargain for around 8500.00. imagine that, you even get a boat with that trailer!!! :D

Not only is the price of steel way up, but there is none to be had. 2 Springs ago we were looking for a single row planter (for you city folk that is something you pull behind your tractor, made out of steel that puts seed in the ground with some fertilizer). The guy at the local tractor store told us not to worry about buying the one on his lot, he had ordered 5 more. Well the manufacturer couldn't get anymore steel and I couldn't get my single row planter, as he sold the one on his lot.


Are the tandem axle trailer really 2 grand more?

Steel lead times have come way down in the past 8-10 months. Price for tubing, plate and coil from the mills has also dropped.
What has NOT gone down in $$$ is liability insurance. Trailer mfgs. are getting killed (not literally :) ) but this.
Tires are also on a big time price rise.
