When I was looking at trailers, I looked at Manning, Vanguard, Extreme, and Myco.
My opinion, they are a step above your usual I-beam trailer.
I think they are all good trailers, but I ended up buying a new Myco.
I think DanB on this board has a 10 year old painted Myco for sale. He emailed me some picks, and it's in pretty good shape. Painted Myco for a 35' Cig

Mannings are great. I had one and it was the difference between my 1/2 ton Dodge pulling 10,000lbs or puking on the side of the road. It pulled like dream and was built solid. You won't go wrong with a Manning.

Manning is a great trailer, I had one under my 43 Black Thunder. Marc who owns the company is a great guy!

are new mannings better than say a new one was back in 98? i was not all that impressed back then compared to my eagle?

I've had 5 mannings and they have all pulled great. If you want to sell the old 28 trailer let me know. I'm looking for a 28 cheapie for my cig. NK

BTW Vastly improved from98 thanks to Boatme

Saber28, I have a Manning under my 382 Fastech. Solid trailer, pulls real nice. Marc has been very swift to address any issues as both boat and trailer were broken in new last year! Good Luck, Wrink.

Rambunctious has one under his 27 Formula. It's a 2000 I beleive, before Marc bought the company. It's an AWSOME trailer.

And I hate my Eagle. It's rusting away at a horific rate. I've had to cut parts away and weld new steel in. I won't own another one.

its going to cost me about $2000 to sandblast, prime , paint and add a drive guard to my current trailer(labor included)

but its still what i would call a "pig in a new dress" fenders a little dented, wheels a little corroded, boat is in perfect shape, trailer looks like crap but pulls very well.
