I know itís my call to make. Just gotta do the research.
You'll figure it out. New can be expensive but then the trailer is made for your boat. Certainly can find a used one but you will have to spend money on it to make it right....

DO NOT order a trailer from Manning. I ordered one in August for our 382, supposed to be a 6-8 week build time, it has now been 5 months! Terrible communication. Supposedly still waiting on axles. Every other manufacturer has been able to keep to a 6-10 week schedule. If I didnt have to put down such a large deposit I would have canceled my order already.

I love my Owens and Sons. Itís now twenty years old and they still support me with parts and advice. Top-notch, family run business.

Not taking away from Manning. Great trailers, but over here with the salt, the aluminum has been great. Also, if youíre questioning the towing capabilities of your truck, the aluminum is a coupon two/three thousand pounds lighter.

Our Manning is going to be a welded aluminum trailer. They make steel and aluminum.

I called manning 3 times last year and emailed them twice about building a trailer for my 292 Fastech. NEVER HEARD BACK FROM THEM! That pretty much made the decision for me to save my money and keep my current trailer.

I definitely wished I would have went with a Myco. Oh well now.

I highly recommend you find something far safer and better than the manning junk. My manning trailer is pure junk, damaged the boat and doesn't fit the hull properly.

Bought my 419 out of Michigan. That same broker had the listing for a while but was terrible to deal with. I contacted the owner of the boat and eventually bought from him.

Update: Guess the broker doesnít wanna make the commission. Iíve left messages and emails and have heard nothing back. Shame that itís like this but maybe thatís just a sign to move on. Anyone know of any others for sale. Looking for blue motors and preferably ac/heat and a generator
