Default STOLEN!!! Triple Axle Trailer Tampa,Fl

It was stolen in the last 24 hours. It is a 2002 45' ROCKET aluminum tailer (18,000# capacity) triple axle with aluminum wheels and brakes on all three axles and fresh water flush. Black carpet on the bunks. Serial # 4WMEFJO332A000017 It has Florida tag # R255LC with decal # 18198015. If anyone sees it call me on my cell phone 813-310-4987.

Thanks,
Keith

"Lost" a 42 ft triple in Nov. I feel for ya and will keep an eye out. (Somehow I don't think it will travel more than 75 miles from where you are.)

Thanks for the help. The cops do not think it will go very far. Their response was " I will probably find it before they do". Sure makes me feel better. We are checking around at the local storage yards. There are not alot of over 40' performance boats in this area.

I feel for your loss; that really sucks. I was just installing new ratchet straps on my trailer and was thinking about how pissed I would be if they got jacked (knock on wood.)

Please do not take this as being insensitive, but take this opportunity to buy yourself a better make of trailer. Everyone I know has had bad or worse luck with Rocket Trailers. Customer Service is non-existant, the quality of the trailer and design leave a LOT to be desired. I had to rebuild everything on mine short of the cross members and I-beams to tow my 5500 lb. boat on a trailer rated for 7000 lbs.

I got the trailer when I purchased the boat. It got the boat delivered approx 1100 miles without a problem. I too have heard bad things about them but did not get the chance to see for myself as I have only had it about a month. Once I settle with the insurance co. I will definitely be looking at other trailers too.
