Does anybody have any detailed close-up pics of the New Style Trailers?

Thanks

Are the 2013's coming with a different trailer than the 2012's?

Yes, it has a full length rear step and led rear lights (stacked), that's all I can see based on the few I have seen online.

There is a video on Vimeo (search "2013 Mastercraft") that is dedicated exclusively to trailers. The new 2013 trailers look awesome including a standard Mastercraft backlit insignia on rear step.

Well, Boatmate is building them right now, so it will be just like a boatmate. MC moved their hydrosports line over to the trailer assembly line, so they are currently outsourcing for a bit. From what they said at the factory tour, they are building a new facility for building trailers for the future.

The video above says they still manufacture their own trailers.

This is all I know-
When I visited the factory last year, they had an assemply line for trailers. When I visited this year, they were building the hydrosports boats in that area. (Instead of assembling them next to the MCs) At the time, I was told by the tour guide, that they were having boatmate build them for a year or two, while they built the new facility.

If you look at a late 2012 or a 2013 MC trailer, they are identical to a boatmate, except for the decals...... Lighting, steps, fenders, wheel choices, treadplating, prop gaurd rollers, bunk brackets etc. All of those things were different on a 2011.

Oh, I can clearly see they are different for 2013, there is no doubt about that. Just pointing out the fact of what the rep in the video says.

(that they are different them the MC trailers of late)

I like the cutout Mastercraft lighting on the sides.

The 2013 trailers now have a placecard near the fender that warns "Due to maximum allowable trailering width, Boat Guide Poles may have to be removed before trailering" I had to read it twice as I didnt believe what I was reading. Who is going to remove the poles everytime you trailer?
