Default Trailer Opinions - Load Rite

Hey guys,

Just looking for some decent opinions. I've been searching and getting quotes on trailers for my Bullet. I have to be budget conscious since I have a wedding and a house purhcase coming up. I was looking at Load Rite, but curious to see what others take was.

I've also called Myco, Evolution, Ameritrail and a couple others and are all roughly 12k and up. Not counting having to find a way to ship/freight it up here to Maryland if I buy out of state. I'd also look at used options if they are in good shape..

Nextrail.........my boat is on a nextrail. No issues. I did replace all the hardware with stainless, but you could probably buy it that way. Owen and Sons. ON the higher end but less than Myco Manning.

FYI, a nextrail is under Pete Meyer's Instigator

I have a Load Rite under my Donzi CC. It is aluminum I beam with galvanized steel supports in the center. It had bias ply tires on it when I got it, which didn't tow well. It does tow good now with E rated radials. Also, my local trailer shop wasn't impressed with the axles and bearings. Check the specs on the trailer carefully if you go that route.

Try Eagle as well. I had a buddy that loved his and the boat I just bought has one pulled AWESOME EOH brakes on it.

If you are going to stick with this setup for a while, and/or you plan on doing a fair amount of trips...
...spend the coin on the Myco, Manning, or Evolution. They ARE better; which has been discussed a go-zillion times.
EOH, Full Disk Brakes, LED lights, tool box, 2-piece bow stop, 2 spare tires on either side of the trailer (extra retrieval guides)...
Every upgrade is worth it.
