I have the same trailer. its a pos! ezloader should be ashamed of putting out such a pos. fenders fell apart, fender braces broke at the frame... lots of welding, rivets, and aluminum plating used to repair it. I ended up using a 4 led flat light and attached it above the frame where the reverse light sits. wired it in with waterproof butt connectors. it works a lot better than the old backup light. I shake my head in disgust everytime I look at my nice boat sitting on such a rotten trailer!

I know the feeling. EZLoader builds a [censored] product.

Yep. My EZLoader trailer went to the scrap yard. Repaired it for years but it was determined to fall apart.

Yeh. You gotta a good looking trailer now.
Mine? It’s the worst, ugliest, poorly aged part of my boat. The Skeeter, the Yamaha...flawless. The trailer? Broken springs, bent axles, bad hub, rust bucket, bad powder coating. You name it; EZLoader sucks at it.

At least Skeeter was smart enough to start making their own trailers at the Kilgore plant. Ranger was stupid enough to take their trailer manufacturing from the Ranger plant in Flippin to Sleezy Loader. I have never owned one but my buddy’s Skeeter trailer was a tube-type that rusted from the inside out and one of the major cross members literally broke in half! Not a good thing to happen while traveling on I-20 at 70 mph

Might as well. If Smith had one for my boat, I’d have bought one.
