Wild wouldn't it be easier to just leave your trailer at Phil's until the boat is ready?

Wild talk to Lucky Strike maybe they can store it for you in the back of there car dealership. Hate to see you drag the trailer so far and then have to bring it back

Take my word for it, Towing an empty trailer for any distance will convince you to NEVER do it again!!! I drove to Florida and towed my new trailer home for my TG....I should have paid the 500 bucks (or whatever it was) for delivery!!!!!

I bought it in Orlando and had a buddy pull it home with an Escalade, did not seem to be bad.

i think it depends on the trailer, i hauled a empty myco for a 36 nor-tech to ft meyers from missouri and never knew it was behind me, didn't hop or bounce once.....

I'd leave it with Lucky Strike. They are several miles from the ocean. Put a couple of tarps over it, and leave it down there. Towing an empty trailer for more than 5 miles sucks ass.
