Lip, the towing performance is phenomenal.  I have been towing boats of this size for about 40 years but this is my first torsion axle trailer and all I can say is wow.  The way it handles the road, curves and bumps is just spectacular.  Also I am loving those guide posts on the trailer, really lets you know exactly where the trailer is at all times.  I am now glad that I left them on although as you see they are a lot shorter now and they look a lot better.

Jim you are right, the old ranger looks pretty good on the new trailer.  She goes for new Carpet on Monday and a little after we get it back it is heading to the beauty parlor to get the gel coat improved.

Great lookin rig Bud.  Really like the looks of that trailer.  Is that aluminum?  Only thing I'd change is maybe cut the guides down but I'd wait till you launch it and find out how tall you'll need them.

It will take me a while to fully come to grips with the heavy duty nature of this trailer.  Everything is upsized.  Tow Chains, Brake actuator chain, Bow tie down chain,  Heavy duty trailer tires even the I beams on the trailer construction are big.  I was surprised that the total weight of the trailer is only 950#  I guess that just reflects the aluminum construction but somehow I thought is would be more..  Heck, even the tongue jack is supersize.  They tell me that all of this sizing is mandated by the state of SC since it is a heavy duty trailer.  All I can say it tows like a feather on the road.  I ran 60 MPH most of the way home on back roads and the tach was steady at 1500 rpms the whole way.  The tongue is a bit longer on this trailer so i have to give a bit more swing room when making a turn into a driveway and stuff like that.  I really do like the trailer guide poles and for sure you always can tell where the trailer is when towing or backing even for us one eyed people.

Ron they guide posts were a lot longer, I had them cut down so the trailer would go into the garage and as it turns out they seem to be about the right height for visibility for towing and backing.  They are currently 6'5" above the road surface.  The interior of the poles is made from aluminum with a pvc slide on cover.  To shorten any more I would have to cut the aluminum as well and for now I will leave them alone and give it some time to sink in about what height they really should be.

If the aluminum post inside is that tall you probably wouldn't want to cut it off to much.  Usually those inner posts aren't that tall.  It'll be nice on a steep ramp.  It's a real nice looking set up.  As heavy as that trailer looks I'm with you.  Amazing it's only 950 lbs.

Hey Bud that thing looks great and now you can appreciate what I shared about the new Load Rite trailer under my Lowe boat. This is my first torsion axle and I was amazed how smooth the combo of heavy rated radial tires and torsion axle is. The boat does not even feel like it is back there. The guides are so awesome when getting ready to change lanes. We both share the single eye issue, I lost vision in my right eye years ago. Any assistance while driving is always appreciated too. 

That trailer is just awesome looking and they made it fit your boat like a glove. You will be amazed how easy the boat loads, especially with the forward capture bunks. It supports the boat so much better when you have them.
