Default Need a trailer

Looking for a replacement trailer to fit my 18.5 Lund Tyee. Can i get a good used trailer for less than $2000? Don't really want to buy new but not many for sale on line. What's a fair price for a good trailer these days? I would prefer Galvanized but painted will do.

Take a look at Karavan trailers if there is a dealer in your area.

They have several lines of trailers, aluminum, steel, all welded hot dipped galvanized, bunk, roller, single or dual axle, Sure-Lube hubs, etc.
Something like 120 models to choose from.

Certainly several to choose from for your Lund.

We have 2 in our family, and only have good things to say about them.

Although some swear by them, Not sure you really need galvanized unless launching in salt water, or fishing open water in winter months where you might be trailering on salted roads. My painted Trailmaster is 16 years old. Still looks new after a good wash and wax. No rust. The painted finish on the them is extremely durable. Though not so with some brands. I believe Trailmaster also has some alternative coatings available.

Here is a used one that would work.
You would have to redo the bunks and the winch stand to match your boat but that is easy work. The price of the trailer is only $1000, and it is a dual axle trailer.

Another one that would work fine for your boat $800.

Here is a good looking Eagle trailer - often used under Lund boats that will only need some work for your boat - for $1200

Used can be a deal however adjusting bunks if they are not a bolted bracket style can be a PIA. I actually just did it both ways. Long story but I bought a new trailer for one boat and took its trailer and changed the bunks around to fit a second boat. The bunks were more work than I thought and we were fortunate enough to have a boat lift we could use. Purchased trailer was a bit of a headache with the back and forth and then an error was made during manufacture and we had more running to do. The guy was great about it and I get mistakes happen it just took time and running around. The new trailer is super bad @&& no doubt but came with a 4k tag. I would not recommend buying a manufactured trailer from anyone that was not local. These were 5K single axle trailers.
