I was also concerned about getting in and out of my boat and that’s the reason I went with a trail master trailer, the steps make it easy. I’ve had a couple of shorelandr trailers and I’ve never had a problem with them I just like the trail master steps better. I’m referring to the trailer side steps I did install a D step on the trailer tongue as well.

Dave, along with the steps don't forget to add the Drotto, My schedule allows me to fish on weekdays when I want to and most of my friends are working. With a heavy glass boat it makes loading and unloading very easy, no trying to hang over the bow to hook it or trying to get down to step on the tongue, with the steps it easy and safe. I dock, put the trailer in pull up and the drotto latches the boat,climb down the steps pull the boat up to dry pavement and put the safety and winch on and away I go. Could not be easier.

Lots of good advise here however the Pro V will still provide a smoother and stabler ride if you can swing the coin or be patient to find a deal it is worth it. Also the wider gunnel is a great step for dock and water level changes that can effect getting in and out.

Good to see your recovery is going well.
Since this will be your last boat, might as well spend the extra and go with the Pro V.
I was just in a similar situation with being a last boat buyer. Decided to add most of the additional options too. The way I figure it- don't cheat yourself, treat yourself !
Good luck with your continued rehab and good luck on your new boat purchase.

I am waiting on a knee replacement which is very unstable and IMHO the wide gunnels are better if you are a bit off than catching the steps inside the gunnel on the Impact.

I can stand on my gunnels and the boat doesn't move.

Great choice with the Pro V ラ2

For electronics if you lean towards Lowrance then take a look at the Simrad Evo -Uses all Lowrance accessories like transducers, point one, etc. But with the best user interface in the game plus the screen looks amazing!
My Simrad graphs definitely outshine my Lowrance graphs( I run them both)
