Re: Trailer

My dealer sells Venture and Eagle. Obviously I'm not going to buy a Venture, and my dealer never got back to me on an Eagle. I found Loadmaster trailer co. http://www.loadmasterboattrailer.com/?PhoneScript=ppc&utm_source=Bing&utm_medium=CPC&utm_content=Loadmaster&utm_campaign=Boat%20Trailers which c...

Re: Trailer

Every time I towed with my shorelandr, one eye was always in the mirror waiting for the trailer to split in two.
It came with the boat, and wasn't meant for a boat as heavy as it carried. Somehow, it held up.

Eagle builds a solid trailer. I looked into that company also. Top notch merch.

Re: Trailer

Haha, all that said, I'll probably go with torsion.
I'll let Loadmaster surprise me.

Re: Trailer

Tough call on suspension. I'm still not sure. I hate the squeaks as much as anyone, but my 26' enclosed with rubber ride eats left rear tires. No way to fix it except toss the axle and weld on a new one. I bought the trailer new with 5200lb Dexters. Probably just a bad axle when it was new. Running ...

Re: Trailer

Well, I store the boat and trailer inside over the winter. The boat stays on the trailer at my house during the summer outside, under a large tarp that covers everything.

Trailer

Ok, I know this is a boring question, but it's a boring winter.. I'm placing an order for a new custom C channel steel trailer from Loadmaster Trailers of Ohio. My boat will be a solid navy blue hull with a white boot stripe, so I'm looking to order a nice matching trailer with a boarding ladder wel...

I liken being a Bills fan to the cutting disease,,.
It hurts, its not healthy and its inexplicably stupid, but we can't stop it.

Re: Outboard resurgence.

To finish my post above while being distracted by watching the Bills get crushed by the Jets. Boating seems to be no different from any other fuel consuming toy. New boat power options have to be lighter, faster, quicker and more efficient. Thus the lighter, all cast VVT 6.0L stern option that IMO m...

Re: Outboard resurge

I own both of these engines today. One in my GMC 2500hd, and the other in my wife's Yukon Denali. I don't think the 6.0l reliability will enter into the equation. Cast iron blocks are reliable platforms. My wife's DI 6.2l is a monster engine, but also complicated and aluminum. DI has had its reliabi...
