trailer inspection during sea trial

I wholeheartedly agree. The trailer is part of the package. A good light setup, Grote HD lights run about $200. And I plan to jack up the wheels, spin them and listen for grinding in the bearings. Bunks and carpet can be replaced fairly easily, from my experience but should be inspected for rotten wood.

How does one know if the trailer brakes are working properly? The boat I'm looking at has surge brakes on the trailer.

I believe this boat was used in fresh water only, based on how the engine appears.
