Chris,

I herd the same thing but just on one or two of themin many that we have built (one or two is too many )

we have been asked by Sunsation to put 14" tires on there trailers due to some water level issues they somtimes have in there area

they want the boat as close to the ground as possable

i think the resolve would be to go to the 15" tire and we are doing more of that for them recemntly

but we are still also building, per order, 14" on many trailers for them

It is a good observation and if this is more than an isolated instance I need to know

Please mail me with all details so we can make sure this dosent continue to be a problem out in the boating community

if it is more than a one or two time incident I will make sure that we insist on the 15"

Chris, I need some info can you please help me out

Marc

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...

Cool GREAT CUSTOM TRAILER

I shopped with many trailer companies to build a totally custom trailer. Most said that my demands were beyond their abilities. Only 2 companies were able to quote: Myco and Manning.

Both companies are very helpful but I went with Manning because of price and location. The trailer is 47' long and I totally love it.

If you have any questions, call me personally.

Dyno,

I am sure that you are referring to the old trailer posts. I do not have #6, but I do have Arneson surface drives with Rolla props. My list of demands was 2 pages long and Manning completed the task on time as promised.

I do trailer my boat all over the country and have many bad trailer stories in the past that justified spending the money for the exact trailer to avoid having future problems.

Mark

I was reffering to Saber28's trailer If I had hardware like yours I'd have guards too!But us little guys running bravo's it looks like over kill to me...can you get a break on your insurance if you do run the guards to offset the extra cost???

ok lets say that some moron rear ends me on 131 north of caddilac, my insurance is only going to pay 60K max for my boat, where do i find another Saber thats as nice as mine or the extra 50K to build new?

thats the reasoning for the drive guard, i'll gladly flip the gate for piece of mind the next time i hear the squeeling tires of someone behind me

Default Insurance?

I could afford the boat but not the insurance or the 200-300 gallons of gas it burns though a day. Sorry no discount on the trailer guards on the trailer.
