I would not use a 205 trailer under a 190 boat. Speaking from personal experience with my old sea ray and trailer, the weight distribution would be off.

Kyle, call Tim or Jimmy and have 'em give you a quote - they could have made her trailer a tandem, but for the 1/2 mile we pull her boat to the ramp, why...?

Kyle - that is a Boatmate trailer. I purchased it in Sept., 2011 and sold my S/A MC trailer. I will say that the new trailer loads, drives and looks much better than the original trailer.

Plus, for me, the Reliable brakes on my original trailer were giving me problems constantly. The new trailer has a different make of hubs/axles/brakes and it has been issue free so far.

Kyle, try Rambo Marine in Alabama. They usually have a big selection of trailers. They have some listed on their website. They are really helpful too if you call them.

Agree....that is why we bought new and sold the MC trailer. 205 with 205v/xstar would not load the springs correctly the shackles would bind due to the weight not being centered correctly.

Could be interesting..... Bet you could get it for $6,000 and then re-sale for $8,000. Definitely more of a hassle but could be worth it.

ok talked to the CL ad from ATL


I would need to cut the bow V stop and the stop for the boat buddy and move it to the rear of the trailer about a foot.


Is this worth it.


Also trying to work a trade deal with my trailer


ATL is far form tx though
