I have an Eagle trailer that was custom made for my boat and its easily the best trailer I have ever had
Mary had a little pig,
She kept it fat and mellow.
And when the price of pork went up,
Dad shot the little fellow.

Mary had a little pig.
Her father shot it dead.
Now it goes to school with her,
Between two hunks of bread.

Default Trailers

I've had a Trailmaster on my old boat and a Trailmaster on my new one. Great trailers, very easy to load and designed for my hull. As PJ said, a couple friends have Eagle trailers. They are great too.

Default need a trailer

Dutch- Have to agree with Mark on boat transfer but you don't necessarily need a pre-built trailer. In my area (Northern Ontario) there are plenty of custom boat & trailer builders who have a ton of knowledge in trailer setups. They're used constantly by the local Police, Search & Rescue & MNR for their own unique requirements & most of them build great products. You'll probably need to drop off your rig so they can assess all the proper weights & dimensions needed so the boat sits right & tows properly. Inboard? I/O? Outboard? Kicker? Bunks or rollers? etc. You being from Minnesota (Land of a thousand lakes) it shouldn't be hard to find one that's competent. If you plan on keeping your boat I would look into this. Ask around & I'm sure you can get the right fit for your particular boat. Doesn't cost anything for a quote.

I have had both EzLoader and Shorland'r bunk trailers and have been satisfied with both brands. And this includes trailering on gravel roads.
My current trailer is an 2011 Ezloader galvanized bunk trailer with oilbath hubs and torsion suspension, surge brakes and swing tongue under a Lund 1825 Pro Guide. And it's a 96" width trailer for garage clearance reasons. Which was contrary to some dealers insisting it had to be a 102" width trailer.

I have a Prestiege Trailer, that I'm very happy with. Unfortunately, they are out of business. I think Heritage bought their assets. I have heard good things about Heritage. Also I'll agree on Eagle and Trailmaster.

What did you think was going to happen when the trailer was called EZJunk?
If my wife ever asks... I was a long way from Tupelo.
