Moving lakes...no trailer...options?

Ok, so we recently bought a place on a different lake and I need to move my boat. I don't have a trailer, mainly because of lack of indoor space to keep one. The boat stayed on a covered lift the first season, then we sold our place and she's been stored inside dry stack since then. My dealer has a few used trailers and the quoted price for those were a "sweet deal" of 6500 for a used 3 yr old trailer. They did offer to rent me a trailer at 500/day. It will most likely be a 2 day process. It seems to me that this is probably the most tenable option. Does anybody else have any ideas? TIA...

They offered to rent you a trailer?! That’s kind of crappy. $500 a day is ABSURD, especially since you bought the boat from them?

Texas Mastercraft has a few X30 trailers for sale as well. One of them is $6000, but it’s brand new and it’s the one that was supposed to come with my boat, and it’s a low profile. Two of them are blue and one is black.

I should be able to rent your boat for 500 per day. That's a crazy rate for the trailer. Where are you located maybe a TT member can help you out w/ a loaner.

Surely someone in the southeast would loan you a trailer for two days. On the reverse side, what is your plan when warranty /dealer work is required? I live on a lake, lifts are not allowed, and cannot imagine not having a trailer. For those of you who don't find a need for a trailer, help jsx30 with some ideas on how you get your boats to the dealer for maintenance and repair.

Call up a trailer place. Usually they have boat trailers for rent.

If my dealer told me they’d rent me a trailer for $500.00 a day, I’d let them know I’d never buy another thing from them nor would I recommend to anyone I came in contact with.

I hope you don’t service your boat there, no telling what a winterization is? 1k?

Yes, I did buy the boat from them new. I felt like 500/day was a lot too. I can see if I wasn't already one of their customers but whatever...It is what it is at this point...
