I have a 2006 ZX 250 with the dreaded ez-loader tube tandem trailer. I went out this morning and noticed that the rear tube has rusted through and broke. So now I am trying to decide to get a plate welded on it or a new one. Desperatly looking for any suggestions.

Don't assume the entire railer is toast. Do a good inspection. If that is the only bad place, a competent welder can replace a section of steel tubing. Prime, paint, and go fishing.

I wouldn't ever replace one rust bucket painted trailer with another rust bucket painted trailer. Not when you can get an aluminum for the same basic cost. Coastline and texall are far superior to any painted POS.

the new trailers they are building are c channel with a bed liner type coating the main difference is when you go to sell it in an area away from the coast it will make your boat take a price hit.

I picked up a new, old stock phantom from these guys last year at a steal. Had three of them at the time. Looks like they still have at least one. 2014 model, but new.

Know plenty of stories out of east texas where skeeter trailers not that old are falling apart, while other brands the same age are just fine, its not the lake its the trailer!
