The trailer looks to be in good shape, and there's always a demand for trailers from people who've priced out a new one. You should be able to sell what you've got and buy what you need for roughly the same price.

The alternative is to modify the trailer - have a good welding shop modify the cross-beam to let your skeg clear it, and modify the positioning of the bunks to fully support the hull. Or, raise the bunks to get the skeg to clear - but you'll have to back the trailer in deeper to launch/retrieve.

One note is that, if you get a flat tire, no jack known to mankind can be placed under that axle. Don't ask my how I know that....
Consider your options and how to deal with that situation before you need it.

Either way, the boat for sure needs to be sitting securely on the bunks. Until then, take it easy while in tow. One bad bump could lead to hull damage. My 1993 205 trailer only has two bunks where your trailer has four. Those bunks are usually positioned to hold the structural/frame of the boat. Considering the hulls are different from maristar to prostar is the reason why the hull isn't touching in places. Good luck with your search and be careful the meantime! I'll keep an eye out also...

If your trailer does not have to bad of rust you could change the location of the bunks to work on your hull. Ive gone the route of looking for a twenty year old trailer in decent shape its really hard to nearly impossible to find one.

I've got a 1992 Prostar 205 with SA trailer. I just looked up the model number trying to get axle and bearing specs to swap drum to disc brakes. It is a PS 32-A only has 2 bunks and fins sit way behind cross member. If anybody knows specs on axle/bearing please help me out so I know what brake kit to get.

I have an 01 xstar that came with a 06 star tandem axle trailer and in the process of relocating the bunks. It is not that difficult and is much cheaper then purchasing another trailer and much quicker. etrailer.com has adjustable bunk mounts that can be bolted or welded on.

Good luck.
