I've been calling quite a few places around Waco to see if they sell and install swing away trailer tongues and haven't found anywhere that does. Has anyone near Waco had one installed? Looking for one for a Basscat Pantera trailer.

Several boats ago I bought mine from either Cabelas or Bass Pro online. Had it installed at a trailer repair shop in Ft Worth, I'm guessing you can find a similar place there.

I've called a few of them, and so far they've all said they don't do anything with swing away tongues. I figured pretty much every trailer shop would do them, but I guess not.

This and one with a little imagination. Take a picture of a trailer with a swing-away-tongue and I betcha he can fix you right up. Rockwall Marine sells Bass Cats, plan b might be to call them.

I have installed the bolt on version with the help of a friend and some Lone Star Lights.. Was a pretty easy 1 evening project.

I recommend using a step bit, you can get them cheap at harbor freight and they work really well with saving standard bits.
