Need to Rent Trailer in TX

ok heres the deal I have an 89 Tristar 190 thats been on a lift all its life I want to have a trailer built for it and they need the boat for the trailer. Does anyone know of any places in Texas that would rent a trailer for a day or two so I can get the boat over to Magnum. The lake is only about 30 miles away from Magnum. I was told a trailer for a 21' would work because its such a short trip is this true or do I need one for a 19' boat. I am in Austin so closer to me the better but will drive if needed.

thanks,
JonnyB

Bump for you JohnnyB. Don't know anyone. Have you asked Boat Town or Ski Ranch if you can rent one?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm pretty much speechless there (unless it is against the law to pull a trailer without a fender in Texas).

There's so much I'd like to say based on some experiences, but I will resist the urge. How is Texas Ski Ranch for Boat service? I would feel compelled to make the drive to find out when the need arises.

Hey Johnny, do you want the specs of a factory trailer for an 89 Tristar? I can get them this weekend. By the way you could use my trailer but it is about 20 hours from you.

Put it this way the ONLY reason I called them this time was because I was running out of Opts. I have had many problems with them before. I haven't really ever had to deal with Texas Ski Ranch before other then just the other day but I have heard good things about them. Over the years we have learned it is a hit or miss with the Mastercraft dealers(or any dealer) some are out of this world nice other are just well yeah. Don't need to worry about Boat service I'm a hardcore gearhead really only thing I need to worry about is when the new 08 40th S&S comes out and where to buy it from
