    I got mine from Brad in Panama City,Fl.

    http://www.aluminumboattrailer.com/

    He has a satilite lot, set up in Milton,Fl. It's on Hwy 90.

    It's somewhere close to that goof ball English that sell's boat trailers. Don't buy nothing from that guy!

    Be sure to tell Brad I sent you.

      I may be selling my trialer. twin axle Loadmaster rated to 8600 lbs. 15" rims. All aluminium frame. I replaced the springs and hardware last year with all stainless hardware. Brakes don't work and it needs new tires and lugs. Galvinized rims in good shape. New LED lights. I am upgrading to a 10000 lb 3 axle model.

      Let me know if you're interested and I'll work up a sale price. I'm in Gautier, MS and can deliver it to you in Orange Beach on my way to pick up a new one.

        Thanks for the help I will be calling them monday. I would take you up on that used trailer but i am looking for torsion bars. Do you know about how often you have to replace those torsion bars.

        Thanks

            Artie, if you go with the 10000lb capacity you may never half to replace the torsion bars.(I think you have to replace the whole axle anyway when a torsion unit fails.) Your new trailer will be very comfortable with Rude Attitude sitting on it. dave.

              Hey Artie,

              When you get ready to sell let me me know. That is if it isn't spoken for already. Question? Why sell a perfectly good aluminum trailer, unless you plan on doing a lot of highway travel?

                You hit the nail on the head there Chris. Highway travel. Same reason I got the truck.

                Ever since I put the bracket on, I can't get quite enough tongue weight for the Duramax. The light tongue weight was good for the Z71 though. With this trailer, I just can't get forward enough to level it out right. I'll let you know when I get home on the price. I really haven't researched a fair price for it on the market these days. You're first in line if you want it.

                You gonna be able to fish after the 17th? We need to plan a trip whatever days you are off that week.

                  On a buddy of mine's trailer he had a guy who was good at math run some numbers and he moved the axle's back about [12in or 18in?] He had to move the fender mounts too. This fixed the toung weight problem.

                    MakoSteve - I have a neighbor (in Mobile) who shopped the Gulf Coast for an aluminum for his 23 Proline and got the best deal from the already mentioned guy in Panama City. For him it was woth the drive.
