Does anyone know where I can find a trailer for a 2007 Skeeter 21 I class?
Dual axle, metal fenders preferred over fiberglass.

Come over to Fork and ask Skeeter themselves. Also they HQ in kilgore, see if you can pick up one direct instead of through a dealer.

My fiberglass fenders are cracked and the rubber step areas are sun dried and coming off. Surge brakes need some attention. I was given a price of $1500-1850 per fender, per side.
I wanted to see if it is close to same price to just get another trailer, new or a good used one.

I have the same boat and have the same problem those trailers were/are junk. I have researched it a lot and found some on craigslist new and have found that you can order a custom McClain trailer dual axle, brakes stainless hardware, led lights for less than those fenders, also you can buy a new e-z load skeeter trailer for less. But I refuse to buy from them again if they are making junk like that. There are many boat trailer companies in the Houston area that will build a lightweight aluminum/stainless trailer for that price.

I don't own a Skeeter myself, but my tournament partner does. His '07 broke to pieces and we are both convinced they're trailers suck too. Although, he wanted his trailer to match and still bought a new one from them for 6500. I would do the same as ETfishin and get a custome one built for way less if it was me.

My Champion is going to need a replacement trailer sooner than later. Texoma minerals have done a nice job of rusting it. I have looked around and will have an aluminum replacement built by McClain or similar trailer builder. If you fish Texoma.... it will eat a steel trailer.

A channel iron trailer will last a long time on texoma, but a tube frame on will rust out eventually, even worse skeeter ez-loader trailers are very thin walled tube, cr@p.
