Myco....I bought a galvanized steel trailer fom them in 1987 and have not had a single problem.

It tracks nicely behind the tow vechicle. I launch and haul out the Cigarette easily...no centering problems.

It is a custom fit trailer, and Myco does a nice job. If I get a larger boat it will be hauled on a Myco.

Thumbs up

Marc at Manning ('Boatme' on the board) builds a World Class Trailer the Manning. I had a 268'Dancer on a Manning that I towed all over the country !!!!! Very Stout, Very straight on the road. I currently have a Cat that we tow alot and it's on an Eagle, another excellent trailer mfg........................ Check 'em out but I would go with the Manning ( Marc also builds stowage boxes, drive guards as part of the deal ). Good Luck, Bill

Manning...
I was broad sided this past summer by a drunk girl and the trailer held up GREAT and protected the boat from any harm. The trailer pulls straight and stops well. I am sold on Manning Marine

Bill at Myco is great. My trailer is the best thing I bought for my boat yet. It tows well, lloks good, and seems to be holding up really well to salt water.

I had a Manning from 1997 under a 33ft Donzi. It was a triple axle and was by far the best constructed, towing and appearance trailer in the world. It was built like a tank and supported the boat every few inches, was low and launched perfect...most importantly it loaded with one person, when submerged right the boat just settled on its bunks with no help at all, even in wind and current. It towed like a dream, never ever swayed and with brakes on 2 axles it would stop my truck. No comparison at all, period.

When I purchased my 1996 42'Lightning this past summer I had to pull it from Port Huron out to the ChicagoLand area.
I didn't have any experience with Manning Marine until this time.
The trailer went down the road with no effort.
No sweaty palms with white knuckles from
gripping the stearing wheel.
The trailer is super duty and constructed very well.
Loading the boat is very easy once I became accustomed to loading a twin step hull.
The only thing that I've done to the trailer maintenance wise is changed bearings,races,adding synthetic grease
in them for my own peace of mind.

My old Myco was built in 87...was dunked for many years, but remains in top notch shape...brakes needed replacement(obviously) and there's some surface rust, but I wouldn't hesitate to run it to Florida tomorrow...

My choice...Myco!
