I bougth Owens & Son aluminium trailer priced fairly.
What I like about it is that that it is welded togther instead of being bolted togther makes for a much cleaner finish.

We use Phoenix. They are welded,custom jigged. They have the bottom patterns for most boats. Owner is a former executive with Eagle.
