Not sticking up for the guy in any way but why does an axle, two tires, locked up brake and a new fender cost $7500??

Regardless, where I come from you borrow something in running order you return it the same way unless there were known problems before it left.

That explains why some of the wheels look as is if they were drug against a concrete curb for 100 miles. I can get past a lot of the things that were wrong, but one thing that blows my mind is that they completely redid the bunk system on the cradle to fit their boat.

As stated before, there is no need to tell all the issues, i think wild just through out a few. The trailer had right around 6k miles on it when it was borrowed.

All of the custom PBB decals were removed from the trailer to add the "involved parties logos".

One Dexter torque axle

2 Semi trailer tires

3 Alcoa Wheels resurfaced

Fenders and skirts need re-painted and pin stripped

New Brake lines

Several broken welds from hitting every curb from MO to FL

The trailer was high centered and there are structural cracks on each side
step.

"involved party" completly removed all of the tilt bunks and altered them to fit his boat, they will have to be remade to fit MES 2 MTI's and Speedy.

Storage compartments had hinges and locks drilled into place.

Alot of paint work needs to be done........

I'm just so happy it wasn't me that borrowed the trailer, blocked Highway 54 for three hours and totaled it out this time.

Wow. I totally change my opinion based on Wilds first post. Based on this, I'd go after them hard. I would not divuldge thier name on here as they may be able to twist it into some kind of a legal deal. But, you could certainly post pictures of the damage, along with pics of the before and after of the logos. Show the PBB logos and the ones that replaced them so that we can get a better feel for the damages done.
