TRAILER OPTION
« on: June 05, 2020, 06:20:21 AM »
Curious what kind of trailers people are using for their GA? 

Single axle, or tandem axle.

Had a #7000 pound tandem axle built in Salt Lake City . Metal craft trailers. $6400. Fits the boat really well. I will be trailering long distances so I wanted a well fit trailer to support the boat well. Lots of guys are using used trailers.

Thanks!!  Would love to see pictures!
I'm leaning towards a 7000 lb tandem myself, and would like to see yours.

I will, especially when I get my boat sitting on it.  I measured my bow eye to transom,  203" so this one should fit.  They are about 35 minutes from me and only had one left, sold 6 of these last week.   



Couple stock photos:

I like the hub lubrication - It's the type that feeds grease through from the backside.  You can pump grease until any hint of water or bum grease comes out on your end where you can see it.
