I was looking at aluminum bunk trailer for my boat. Need tandem 23-25' 5000# capacity w dice brakes. Both are around $3000. Which is better or would you recommend another brand. I am in Nc and freight gets expensive. Thanks.

I've owned 4 EZ Loader trailers. Only 1 of them was aluminum and it was the only one I didn't like. What I didn't like about it was the bunk design. The bunks were aluminum box with an EZ glide strip on top. Wasn't so much the bunks I didn't like as the fact that you could not adjust the bunk angle to match the hull of the boat. The other EZ Loader trailers I owned (which were steel) were highly adjustable and could be made to cradle the boat perfectly.

I would look at Real X by Everything Marine in Miami.....you can get a 7000lb tandem for that price!

I've have had 2 Ventures, both were/are great. The one I currently have and a bunch of title issues from the previous owner and Venture tracked down the selling dealer, worked with me to get everything straightened out with minimal help from the previous owner... I would highly recommend Venture just based on their customer support.

Check out Rolls Axle Trailers out of Plant City, FL. They are the best out there. I bought mine 3 years ago and it is still beatiful and tows like a dream. The owner is great to work with as well.

They are well built, beautiful trailers but one like the tandem he is asking about will run close to $5K :o

I had a Venture trailer and it was fine. Not the most deluxe trailer made, not a piece of cheap junk either. Somewhere in the middle. A boat trailer is just a tool to store and move the boat safely. I think Venture fits the bill.

I would inquiry as to who makes brakes and axles. Don't buy tiedown disc brakes as they are prone to problems.

Here's my opinion on the Venture - and check out my thread from back in September -

http://www.thehulltruth.com/trucks-trailers/294532-snapped-leaf-spring-venture-trailer.html

If you're looking at one with the springs, just do yourself a favor and get under it to inspect the spring integrity. As you can see from my posts, I had an issue with severe rust on a 4yr old trailer.
