If one were so inclined, where would one begin to find a new trailer for a 2007 Skeeter ZX 190 in the Bryan/College Station area?

Don't know about Aggie land, but I know the Ranger dealer in Waco/Temple/Killeen has quite a few trailers for sale.

Depends on what you want and want to spend.

These guys tend to have a fair amount of Skeeter trailers.

If you are a one and done type guy, I'm guessing the trailers these guys build will last.

As I come across things I may need one day, I bookmark them just in case. These were two I ran across at one time for trailer options.

Tex All are great trailers, so is coastline, but whatever you choose, I'd get an aluminum trailer over any painted rust-bucket steel trailer.

a bass boat will sell better on a painted custom trailer than a aluminum trailer .

Not to me it wouldn't.
Lemme think....this one has a trailer that I KNOW is going to cancerize itself. This one I don't have to worry about...ever.

I won't lie, I HATE painted trailers, how they ever got popular is still a mystery.

I got a good enough deal on my boat that I really don't have to worry about what trailer will help the boat sell better or which doesn't. Plus, it ain't for sale.

I am finally at that point in my life where I can just worry about satisfying me and not everyone else. That said, I am not scared to get my hands dirty and do a little work on a trailer if it saves me a bunch of money. I can spend the money I didn't spend on some other stuff that I really, really need - like a new 1911 and a new AR, and maybe rod n reel or two...

Lessee...
They cost the same amount of money.
One is painted Chinese steel, not if but when it starts to rust.
One is I beam aluminum. No paint, can get it powder coated if that toots your horn.
My feeble brain fails to see how it would even be a decision.

I will not own another steel trailer either, I bought my last one in 1997, and it lasted less than six years. If I were dead set on buying a steel trailer, I would be dam sure it wasn't a square or rectangle tube frame like a lot of them are.
