my eagle has never set my boat on level, its always about an inch or two higher on the port side, other than that it has pulled great and we make alot of long distance pulls, probably about 3000 miles a year

I was told just a couple months ago that is back to the previous owner. But that Marc is still with Manning. Just what I was told.

Either way, they are very nice trailers.

ahhh well here are the facts

I owned the company but I have sold it back to original owner so i can pursue many other things i am into along with the trailer bussiness
Ron runs the shop i still handle all the sales efforts for the company and still do much of the office work

We have changed many things on the trailers in the past few years and i think you will find our product 100% better than even a few years ago

check out our website www.manningmarine.com

we will becoming a sponsor on OSO board in the next couple of months and we are starting to do Aluminum trailers as well

Saber,

I talked to Jim at Saber yesterday and gave him the pricing for your trailer

check out our site and click on the accesorie section and look at all the other options you can get

also check with Sunsation powerboats
ask them how they like their trailers

we do all of Sunsation Steel trailers and are looking at doing there aluminum stuff soon

dont hesitate to call me with questions

Saber call Joe Borman in Hudsonville he can take care of you cheaper than that!!! He has a shop across from the bowling alley on Balsom his cell is 889-1128 I've been trying to get a replacement fender for my Manning from Marc for a year and he hasn't gotten back to me. I was at Joes shop a couple weeks ago and he was painting a huge cat trailer white Imron looked nice, he fixed a scratch in my painted grafix last year matched perfect. He also said that he could get me a fender cheap...

Don,

This is Boatme (Marc)i am at a Friends office and he told me of your post so i am using his screen name to respond to you

I remember you asking about a fender a year ago and I thought you were going to get me the width of what you have and the length so we could get you what you need but since then you haven't mentioned it to me
I am happy to get you what you need just please get me the dimensions as we use different size fenders depending on the trailer and the supplier we were getting them from at the time it was built

we chatted at boat show and don't recall this coming up

also have chatted here numerous times

call me we can get you what you need

616-846-1569

Marc

alright don't get your panties in a bunch if I am wrong, but I heard second hand that manning trailer owners in the 28 foot range ( sunsation 288's ) were blowing out tires on a regular basis... Heard a few owners were complaining about the size and load capacity of the tires manning was using...

Get a Manning. The trailer is crap but Marc's a nice guy.
KIDDING!! Great trailer. My 42 Sonic sits on one and Marc Blondin promised me an extra doughnut at the driver's meeting Saturday morning at SOTW.
PS Don't forget the toolbox. It doubles as a beer cooler.
