Weight of 1994 Prostar 205 + trailer

I am wondering if anyone here knows off the top of their head the weight of the 205 and trailer.

Weight of 1994 Prostar 205 + trailer

That would be my guess as well. According to the manual the dry weight of the boat alone is 2550. Or something very close to that.

Don't forget to account for up to 30 gallons worth of fuel as well as gear for whatever reason it is you need that weight (unless it's for registration).

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.

Right, didn't think of that. I am asking because a fellow is interested in my boat and he drives a Jeep Cherokee and is wondering if it will be able to tow it safely.

Full tank of fuel will weigh a bit under 250 lbs. Add another couple of hundred pounds or so for gear.

I towed our old 93 205 (occasionally) with my wife's 97 V6 Explorer. No real issues, but I wanted for more as far as wheel base and brakes were concerned.

I used to tow my 1992 205 with a '97 Ford Explorer V-6, too. It had enough power to tow the boat, but it was a little scary in strong cross winds. When I got a Chevy Tahoe to replace the Explorer it was so much better, like I couldn't even feel the boat behind me most of the time. I think the wider track and extra weight of the Tahoe made a big difference.

Hope it's an automatic. My V6 F150 has no problem with the 97. It's actually harder to pull out the empty trailer at the ramp because there is no weight in the bed.
