I did my EZLoader. Got a parts schematic from EZ, made a list of what I needed and ordered-up. The rest of the trailer was in like-new condition, the $ math penciled out in my favor, since I did the work myself.

If you know the model # of your trailer you could check LoadRite's web site to get an idea of what you'll need. Then order the parts from etrailer or one of the other suppliers of LoadRite parts.

Thanks for the reply's. My boat is put up for winter. I'm trying to get things in order for spring. I contacted Loadrite trailers waiting for them to get back to me.

Giving up ability to launch and retrieve at low tides ......maybe not a factor for your area.

I’ve had both types and sad to see the bunk guys not able to launch at 5am for hot am bite due to low tide

Rollers on the first two-thirds, bunks on the back third of the trailer. Most of the best of both worlds.

I've thought of replacing the rear set of rollers with bunks and keeping the forward bunks too.

Halfmoon I see at the bottom of the page you have a 2006 Sea Hunt 220 Escape. I have a 2007 Sea Hunt 220 Escape. I just bought it late this year and never had a chance to put it in the water here in NY
How do you like yours.
