Default Trailer purchase help

How much should I be looking to spend for a 38 foot V bottom trailer? I dont want to spend a ton (I dont tow often) but something aluminum that will tow safely. I do need it fairly quickly. What manufactures should I check out in FLA.
Thanks

I've bought a 1/2 dozen from Fastload on the west coast. Decent trailers, you can upgrade them or go bare bones. Most have been built from scratch within 3-5 days of placing the order.
My best guess......38 V bottom could go from 6K to 10K.

I just bought a HI-TECH trailer out of florida through one of their local salesman.

Torsion Axles, , LED lights, Center Bunks, Disc Brakes on all 3 axles, Spare Tire & Hub Assembly, and I had him build the main beams all the way to the end of the transom so they were flush with the transom and back of the bunks - this caused an increase in the I-Beam size - so some extra $$.

I ordered it on 5/5. Last I heard they had gotten the hull layout from CIG and it was to be delivered today or tomorrow to my door.

Member Old School on here has one under his Top Gun and was happy with it so I figured if it was good enough for that boat it was good enough for mine. (Plus it was half of what a new Myco Costs)

If you want to know the cost PM me but it was a VERY fair price.

I'm really happy with a Myco I found and bought on E-bay for $4K. It is a 38' and mint condition, I am sure there are more out there and used is the way to if you don't tow very much.

Try EZ Loader, not sure if they make one that big, but the one I bought for my 24 was nice, and the right price.
