My Tandem Manning with my Formula on it does not sway at all even at 80.I do have a dually so that may be some of it.If you plan on taking long trips have Rob make you two spare holders,that was suggested on another thread.I would have but I did not think of it.

I personally would not get a drive gaurd,don't like the way they look,one more thing to do at the ramp and a lot of guys have said on here that they had wiring problems with the rear lights because of the harness getting pinched.

Definately Elec/Hyd brakes. Get the drive guard for only 500. as long as it swings out easily. Mine had to remove 4 U posts and lift it into the truck...hassle

Agreed, looks cool !! Manning would be a consideration for sure.

+1 on electric brakes. Once you go electric you will wonder how you ever lived without them!
Yea I HATE surge brakes. That was a given. So I need to ask Rob how the drive guard swings.

Pull My Trigger,

What kind of trailer did you go with?

Great information I think Iíll stay with the tandem axel.

BTW


What the heck should I sell my myco for? Any ball parks? Great shape, but surge drum on one axel.

I feel really cool saying this, its a full custom trailer made by a shop around here.....took the dimensions of the boat, had a custom mixed paint of your choice +$200, your choice of fender styles, wheels, I got extra reinforcing in the fender mounts so you can stand on them to get in the boat, I got tie down rings where I wanted them....he's in London Ontario if your interested....the pic doesnt do the paint justice, pulls and stops awesome

I had an dual axle aluminum Loadmaster under my boat. It was a great trailer, but not nearly as nice as Manning. Manning's shop was right down the street from my last job. They make a nice trailer! I agree with most here on the dual axle. My ramp was tight and would have been a huge pain with a tripple.

I would definaltely go dual. I prefer surge brakes for convienence. My stuff gets hooked to differnat trucks all the time.

Manning builds a nice trailer and so does Load Master in Port Clinton, Ohio.

I'd say $2800-$3500 for you Myco

I thought load master in Ohio only did steel trailers?

Are they same company as the one in Tampa?

Go with the Manning and spend the extra $500 for the drive guard... Pull one pin and it swings out of the way and the added protection is really nice, cheap insurance when backing up too!

If I could get away with a tandom I would, but having two spares is a great idea if you go that direction... especially in FL.
