I want to buy a new trailer, but I'm not sure where to look?

5 posts in this topic

I got a new little boat, but the trailer is tough to handle. I really want to be able to easily fish myself, and I simply can't with the trailer I've got. I've checked hsolist, but there's nothing great there. Any thoughts on where to look for a new (not "NEW") trailer? What should I expect to pay?

About the boat: 14' Aluminum with a 15 HP motor and a trolling motor. Pretty simple stuff. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks!

trailers by them selves are tough to find. get a hold of valv he usually has some for sale or knows were to look for one. I always see nice trailers under little boats and usually give and offer just for the trailer and not to many people will sell them seperate. I usually see the boats and trailer packages for reasonable prices $500-800. good luck

I can't figure out how to e-mail him (or anyone for that matter!). I'd totally trade trailers too, as there's nothing wrong with mine, just not as simple as I'd prefer, but maybe this trailer plus some cash to someone selling already?

Well Valv, or anyone else that might be able to help, my e-mail is matt@mnhousesearch.com if you want to find me. Thanks!

I've seen them for boats that size at Fleet Farm as well.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
