It would have a transferable title.
I estimate I can build it for between $3,500 -$4,500 depending on what extras I
rig it with.
That's with all new components with the exception of two items I've owned for a
while; an electric trailer winch & a utility box that would be bolted onto the
That's using two 7k Dexter axles (a fellow A30 owner pointed out 6K was to close
to maxing the rig out so I upped them) complete with electric brake wheel
assemblies, EZ lube hub kits, equalizers, 235 80/16 radials, breakaway kit,
fenders, jack, led lights and markers, 2-5/16 hitch assembly. Standard A-frame
construction with mast support. Primed trailer painted with Phantom black gloss
paint (Mercruisers paint, very tough and durable, the stuff is amazing).
Comparable trailers from Triad or sailtrailers.com go for double that and up
depending on the extras package.
I'm not building this one for profit, my labor is free this round. I'm happy to
get the boat to the coast and recover a chunk of what I would have paid a
commercial hauler and call it good.
When I take my boat to the coast I will have a travel lift remove her from the
trailer so the trailer will have never seen salt water.
The truck is a 1997 3/4 ton dodge ram 2wd with a turbocharged Cummings diesel,
A/C, electric brake and tow package. Price is negotiable, looking for fair
Noteworthy; the 3/4 ton can tow more than a one ton, a one ton can carry more
but tow less.
here's a picture of the truck
