New trailer for 95 Prostar 205

I've got a single-axle trailer for my 1995 Prostar 205 and its in need of some repair here and there. Actually, I'd love to strip it down, repaint, replace bunks, all hardware, and electrical, just because its nearly 20 years old and it probably needs all of that. Plus it wasn't the same trailer that came with the boat originally... different color paint and different color graphics.

Anyway, I figure instead of all of that I'd rather upgrade to a dual-axle trailer that it really needs (especially on these TX roads) and make any repairs that particular trailer needs. However, I seem to have exhausted all my internet searches and local sources.

Any ideas where I could continue to look for one that fits this particular boat? I'd like to keep it an MC trailer, but has anyone had any luck with any particular aftermarket trailer for this era either?

Thanks for any help.

I hadn't thought to check with Waterski America since the last time I went up there I was told they don't do much with MC. But they're just up the road, so I may stop in and ask tomorrow. TXMC hasn't responded yet.

I'll check in with boatmate, but not sure I'll like the price tag on a new custom trailer.

Thanks for the options guys.

I've been surprised previously - custom trailers aren't that hideous when you factor in the costs of all the ancillary stuff you'd need to buy.

Plus you can then often sell your old one. For instance if you had a 190 on a single I'd kind of want yours for title related issues.

Did you call this guy? http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/bod/4656455092.html

Seems had multiple inboard trailers, at one time.

Thanks for all the replies. I haven't had much luck today finding a good dual-axle option for this one, so it may be better for me to just overhaul my current one.
