Does anyone know a good place to get a boat trailer around the Houston area?

Magnum Trailer - located in San Antonio and Austin build some quality trailers. As a matter of fact, they build all the trailers for Sail & Ski who distribute Sea~Ray.

I know it's not Houston, but not to far away.

here is there link: http://www.magnumtrailers.com/

CR- found a couple manufacturers around town for around 4k
Boattrader- only 1 in tex and its for a pontoon
Magnum trailer- waiting to hear back from on price

Anyone heard of Sea Hawk? Company in Fl and delivers a bunch to texas every 2 weeks, $3100 for what i am looking for.

it is for a Sea Ray 220 Sundeck that is on Canyon Lake and would be brought back to houston, so depending on Magnum trailer's price, they will be a good candidate

thanks for the quick replies

Roadmaster in Fort Worth has been making custom trailers for Caravelle's and others sold around here for years. I have bought parts from them for mine and been in there shop. They have fixed jigs for lots of hulls. They are a bit flaky to deal with but seem to make a very solid trailer. Mine is a 1996 and still looks nearly new. I have a # someplace filed away if you cant find it.

Let us know which way you go. I have an aluminum EZLoader that I have adjusted six ways to Sunday and still haven't got it right. It pulls fine and is completely safe, just doesn't seem to sit right.

I used to swear by road runner trailers. Not so sure anymore. They finally worked all of the bugs out of mine but never should have had them. One was a broken axle on a new trailer.
