Trailer Question? Which style is better?

#1 Post by Trollin79 » Mon Jul 20, 2015 5:49 am

The boat I bought to fix up has bunk style trailer. I found another boat that I am going to buy and fix up instead and sell the first boat. But the other boat has center lift trailer. I trying to decide which trailer I want to keep and which one I am selling with the first boat.


What are the pros and cons between a center lift pontoon trailer and a bunk style pontoon trailer?

I've had both and much prefer my current bunk trailer. Can't tell you how many times I puckered going around a corner thinking the pontoon would roll off the center support trailer.

Scissors trailers are fine used around a boat dealership to drop the boats on the ground--or when you're just pulling a boat a mile or two to a shallow boat ramp. The downside is that they're easy to fall over on their side on a tight turn.

Bunk style trailers are the way to go. Downside is that you've got to have a good deep water boat ramp to get the boat off them.

Swap the trailers.
