You trailer weights are probably 50% off. The aluminum trailer under my 38 was almost 2,000 lbs....a buddy has a steel under his 38 that tips over 3,000 lbs.

ratedx it sounds like you care more about spending less money than getting your boat towed safely. The fact that he offered his "services" should have been a red flag in itself.

35 Fountain single step (executioner, classic or pre 2000 "Lightnng") is 7600 lb dry. The side by side 35 Lightning twin step is 8400 lb - 8600 lb dry, depending on which year. The staggered 35 Lightning with new interior is 9500 lb dry. These weights are what is listed in their brochures. The MSO on my 2001 Myco aluminum tandem axle 35 Lightning trailer says 2000 lb for the trailer.

Putting any of these 35's behind a Durango would be insane, in my opinion.

YEA YEA DO IT DO IT! but you gotta post up pictures of the durango when your boat is hooked to it before the guy leaves, cus that will probably be the last time you see it in good condition.
