trailer width

anyone remember the trailer width for a 98 single axle mc trailer shipped with the 98 sports star. old mc factory site used to have all that stuff in their archives.

My 97 P205, which I believe is the same hull as the 98 sports star, is 94" tire to tire on the trailer. I have a 96" wide garage, it is a tight fit.

You might just want to get a 12' tape, and measure the width from the widest points. That's if the boat is available for the measurement. That way you don't potentially get a inaccurate number, and have your trailer not fit wherever you are trying to put it. Hope you find it!

I'm in the same situation as Brazos_205. My '99 SS OB has a 94" wide Dorsey single axle that goes in a 96" door. Sometimes patience is more than a virtue...

brazos, pete, and jrab -- thanks for help. magic number is 94. was going to measure it, but ran out of time and needed some numbers in reference to a lake place was considering in fla. didn't buy, but garage was too short anyway (19') and no way the mc and car would fit in garage together.

Yea, mine only fits because I had that bay extended to 23' when I built the house. Now I'm kicking my self because I didn't think about the door not being but barely wide enough.
