  • Trailers

    Hey all. I am looking for a trailer for my 24' Munson Landing craft. I just bought it several weeks ago, but am still without a trailer. Called original builder, said the boat probably weighs in the neighborhod of 5500 lbs, sound correct? So i'm thinking a tandam axle trailer is best, or a heavy duty single. Planing on pulling it with a 1/2 ton GMC, any body know of any good deals on trailers. CL and alaskaslist didn't have much. Dont really want to pay full price for a new EZloader or King.

    Don't "want" to pay or "can't" pay for a new trailer? I'll never understand why anyone would skimp out on the trailer that is holding up their prized possession. You need a minimum tandem axle for your load. Forget about finding a used one-size-fits-all trailer and go to a builder with your boat to get a real trailer custom fit to your boat. Full bunks; no rollers. Have no idea what you have for builders down in Kodiak, so I can't help you there. Start in the yeller pages.

      There is a guy that is in Delta Junction that sells aluminum trailers at better prices than the dealers. The brand is Hi-Tech Marine. I have had mine for a few years and I am happy so far. The main website is www.kjenterprisesllc.com, and the manufacture website is http://www.aluminumboattrailer.com/.

        Look if you want the toughest trailer on the road that is twice the trailer of a bolt together king/easyloader and less money.. Look no further than TuffTrailer in Lynden Wa. http://www.tufftrailer.com/ I got a welded galvanized triple axle rated for a 12,000lb boat, w/ stainless disc surge brakes, w/ all stainless hardware ( the hardware on my galvy king was cheap chinese steel) a spare tire ready to go for 6500.00 which is about 2k less than king/easyloader and its welded not bolted. FYI don't go through the dealer in eagle river he's a jackass. Go straight to the source

              Yeah I bought mine through him even though i was in Bellingham building my boat I went through Kevin to keep it in Alaska . He stopped by the shop I was in and made some wise crack about com-fishing and I pointed to the door and told him not to let it hit him in the ass and if he didn't snap-too in an orderly fashion my boot was gonna go along w/ him.... after we built 6 gillnetters and we sold 6 tuff-trailers for him I wasn't real receptive to any wise-ass anti-comfish talk especially after a long rainy bellingham day pulling boat wire and arguing w/ my partner

                Thanks for all the help. I called Kevin with TuffTrailers, he gave me prices of 3 trailers that would fit my weight range. Kinda steap, i'm thinking of calling a supplier in Seattle, and having a buddy with connections get it shipped. Kevin had a 1500-2000 dollar markup from what the TuffTrailer website said.

                  I noticed a guy on the Anchorage Craigslist that had a triple axle boat trailer he used for a 32 foot boat for $1500. It may be a rust bucket or it may be something a guy could fix up and get alot of use out of. Might be worth checking out. If you have the tools and know how you could rebuild a trailer like that and customize it to fit your boat like a glove. Might be worth a try if your leaning that way.

                        Kevin stacks trailers about 10 high then rallys them up the Alcan, if it were me I'd go to the source in Lynden its like 5 min from the Bellingham airport
                        Plus he doesn't know when to keep his pie hole shut. Walks in a warehouse full of gillnetters and starts running his meat flaps. Nah he's not the sharpest tool...

                          Kevin hasn't ran up the highway in several years, they all come up by barge.

                          Now I'm only "hearing" one set of "meat flaps"

                            Your making that part up for whatever reason only you can know that.

                            I'm sure you don't quite remember the conversation since the refer smoke was so thick in the shop that Kevin had to step back outside so he didn't get a contact high.

                            Kevin used to be a commercial fisherman and supports them completely, he even gives them very big discounts or did you forget that part too?

                            "Plus he doesn't know when to keep his pie hole shut. Walks in a warehouse full of gillnetters and starts running his meat flaps. Nah he's not the sharpest tool... "
                            Are you refering to the part where you followed him around whinning about not having any money and he understood since he commercial fished also but you were to stoned to realize he agreed with you?
