what year was that?


Most mannings Ive seen are steel

Just ordered a new 07 Manning for the Fountain over the winter. Drive gaurd and boxes are nice. It came out beautiful. I would put it up against a Myco or Eagle any day of the week for the savings. Ron and Pam Manning are true craftsman and great people to deal with. Mine is a steel trailer but will build aluminum. Prices are very reasonable. go to www.manningmarine.com. You will be very pleased

I had a Owens and Sons under my 2005 30' Spectre and was very happy with it. I wondered about the bolt together deal but never had a problem or noise when towing.

Manning. We are having one built for the Gladiator right now. Ocean Performance has been using them since last year and they have been great. We towned our boat on a steel manning last year to 1000 Islands Poker Runs and it was just as good as our steel Myco under the Hustler.

Here is my welded aluminum Manning. I chose Manning based on the 2nd version delivered to SABER28. I was careful as was suggested and I am very happy with the product.

Pics of my Manning....awesome trailer. I towed 800 miles from Detroit thru the mountains of Pennsylvania in the snow and she never skipped a beat.

Ron was great to work with and did everything I asked.

Loads incredibly easy and looks awesome...

It's kind of an all or nothing deal.....

BIG difference between laying a nice bead and designing a worthy welded AL trailer. We see it all the time with enclosed race trailers. It's a fact that the AL flexes more and is more vulnerable to fatigue- will crack at the welds, fast in the lesser design trailers.

Personally I would never own a Welded AL trailer unless it came with a 10 yr structural warranty. Even then it would have to be one of the top names ($$$$$$$$$$$) A good bolted AL trailer is fine and does not have these problems.

good luck
