Unhappy Need a trailer compatible with a 1991 PS190

Well, I finally sold my trailer last year after paying to store it for 5 years and never once using it.

So of course now we are moving away from the floating home and I find I need a trailer. The good news is there's a garage space for a boat. Also the new house is less than a mile from the boat launch, so I don't expecting to be putting many miles on the trailer.

With the new house I am on a very tight budget, so no new trailer, no custom trailers, and I haven't been able to find a used mastercraft trailer.

Never having put my ps 190 on a trailer before (that's right, never!) what do I need to watch out for when looking for a new trailer? Will a standard 18-20' EZ Loader trailer work? I see these for well under $1k (actually some well under $500)

Any other thoughts?

The only alternative is (an my wife's preference) is to sell her.

Thanks, Tony (Seattle)

keep an eye on the ebay thread on here, there were a couple trailers on the west coast a few weeks ago. check with dealers in your area, craigslist, salvage yards, etc. I do not recommend a roller trailer, bunks support the boat better.

I am no expert, but I believe a general purpose boat trailer is designed for a v hull. where a MC trailer has bunks that are near flat in the rear. Plus you need depth in the center of trailer for the tracking fins, rudder, prop. And the prop guard built into trailer.

here is a MC trailer cheap. not sure how far it is from you. Usually MC trailers are $2k to 4k used. Not sure if this one will fit a 90s model prostar 190.
Trailer - $795 (Carlisle, Iowa)
