McClain trailers builds a nice one. They are in South Houston. Sorry I don't have their number. Also Magnum in Austin.

I can tell you who not to use. Instigator out of Houston are scammers! Screwed my trailer up, and refused to make it right.

Awesome Jeff.... congratulations on your new purchase, I am also jealous as I also want to move up to something bigger and have been looking at the 47's among others.

Keep us posted as to when you get her home and let us know how sweet the ride is. Pics, pics & pics.

ofcourse the best would be Myco but they are far from you. your best bet would be McClain trailers...Or look for used but like new Myco. there's plenty in TX

Dorsey makes a good trailer. They are in Oklahoma. Did you buy the 47 from a dealer?

Ok that's Dallas. Otherwise I would recommend McClain also http://www.mcclaintrailers.com/

I would not recommend Magnum. Service after the sale is terrible and trailer part/options are waaaay overpriced. Tires on my triple axle were 14" and should have been 15" considering the weight of the boat and trailer.
