Beautiful boat but that trailer set up needs ALOT of help. Not picking on you but pic appears to have boat way far back with no support over transom and bow stop.....another story.
I wouldn't tow out of lot.

"Not picking on you ..."
But indeed, picking on you.

My 2017 Tacoma V6 4x4 tows my 2005 Kencraft Challenger 215 w/ 250 Suzuki.



My rig doesn't win any races, but it does just fine. If I tow further than my local ramps I use a 2500 Duramax.

Definitely not picking, just making a serious comment incase this person has no idea as to what a perfect rig set up is. If you look at the bow there is only a line holding the bow eye quite a distance from the "bow stop". There is no chain or anything securing bow or stern to that trailer except that line or rope, if you will. I don't pick on people but if someone states this is perfect and I feel I can assist, I do on here and in everyday life. I'm sorry if others believe that rig is perfect but it is not.

Thanks for comments and concerns... the boat is keep on trailer at marina for quick launches so bow and stern tiedowns are not installed unless i travel over the road. The bunks are set up exactly where the manufacturer recommends it for trailer and cradle.

It's not my first rodeo... I've been towing boats for over 35 years and in fact was the one who started this thread many years ago

Wrong rig I was commenting on. I tried to quote but I guess my puter abilities were off or the guy operating it...LOL.
Sorry for confusion

Not the best pics, and certainly way more truck than needed for the boat, but we are loaded just right for the camper.
