Does anyone know where to get a good boat trailer in the San Francisco area?
Iím looking for a tandem aluminum trailer capable of carrying a Sea Ray 260 Sundancer that has a dry weight of 6200 lbs.
I want Kodiak disk brakes and acculube hubs on it.

It seems all the trailer manufacturers are in Florida.

Thanks for any help.

Log on to Bloodydecks.com there are a number of trailer manufacturers that are sponsors there, Pacific Trailers would be a good place to start.

Pacific or Zieman. Both in NorCal.

Don't waste your time (or money) on an EZ Loader...

Try Diablo Hitch and Trailer in Martinez. They can point you in the right direction and also order and fit a trailer to your liking.

Thanks for all the feed back guys.
After emailing and talking to allot of trailer manufactures I can to the conclusion that they sure are proud of their trailers in California.
The price for a trailer in California is any where from 1.5 to 2 times what a trailer in Florida costs. They also all want to use ufp brakes and axles there. I want Kodiak brakes.

So after all the research I've done I have narrowed it down to two manufactures in Florida, one who ships mulitple trailers stacked on top of the other and charges $800 for shipping and I have posted the other on Uship and it looks like I should be able to ship it for about $1300. Still allot cheaper then one built in California and I get what I want.

The two in Florida that I have it narrowed down to are TNT trailers and realXtrailers. Any comments good or bad on either of these two?
