Shouldn't a trailer that size come with runway lights?

That's what I thought. Might look at it for my trailer. I'm sure Bryan and Sodar would assist from a far.

BoatMate actually offers it as a factory option. I think they're actually called "runway lights", and they come on when a float switch in the trailer is triggered IIRC. I'm sure you could retrofit pretty easily... would be a cool project.

Here's one that doesn't suck, but doesn't look very cool either. Can see the LEDs on the frame...

The Sport Boat Trailers for the 80 have them. And they are field goal-esque but IMO necessary when you get the front end up to the bow bumper and go to pull it out of the water, the boat tends to wash to one side or the other and the guide poles are nice to keep it centered.
