mines a triple manning c channel with transom guard. doesnt float, looks awesome, i take a gray scotchbrite pad and polish it quickly once a year and it looks perfect 5 plus years later. its also 400 lbs lighter than the steel one it replaced. i would never have another steel trailer.

When I bought my boat it came with a yellow painted steel Myco that matched my boat. I boat in salt water so I sold it right away. I waited a few years till I bought my new ACE trailer. I priced around for a while new and used and I got this ACE for less then most used Myco's were selling for. Now I know the old saying you get what you pay for but this trailer has been great so far. Very little flex if any at all, does not float at all, triple axle, torsion, eoh brakes on all three axles. I had them put the nicer round fenders with the upgraded wheels and she tows straight as an arrow.........and for the few times I tow a season this so far has been a great trailer at for a great value. I just felt better knowing what I was buying then buying someone elses junk...... and even though it's I-beam Aluminium I think it looks pretty dam good with my Sonic sitting on it !!
