Thumbs up Need Trailer Manufacturer names Please !

A friend approached me with a question. He has an older 21 foot checkmate for which he would like to purchase a new trailer, tandem with brakes. He was looking at Eagle trailers, but has been informed that they may have now gone out of business. Can anyone suggest a trailer co. with a dealer around here in the Northeast, that can fit him with a new trailer for his boat ? Thanks for any input.!

MYCO trailers are the best, but I hope he has deep pockets.

MYCO might be a bit much for a 21 footer... they build the best, but I think there are others out there that can build a nice one for that size boat for much less. Performace trailers, or even load rite would work for that size boat.

For custom painted,welded steel trailers,you can't beat Prestige.618-542-8039,ask for Phyliss. They have Checkmate patterns,quality equal or better than Eagle,and better priced. For aluminum,you can't beat Hi-Tech,850-522-3861,Bill Brasher.He's an OSO member. I deal with both and couldn't be happier. Robert

Bear trailer for my 31 footer was relatively cheap, less than $4,200 couple years ago. aluminum, tri-axel, 2 with brakes. If your friend is in fresh water use and not going cross country, its a good way to save some dough.

Just don't buy a Pacific Trailer built here in Southern Cali. They are the worst--and their customer service sucks big time.
