    fellas,
    i'm sick of busting down the troutvac trip after trip. Can anyone recommend a raft trailer? Even better: can anyone recommend a raft trailer that can be viewed and purchased on line?

    i thank you,

    thee trouthole

    Don't know what the dimensions of your boat are but here is a link for a place in Everett that sells utility trailers up to 10'. They may also have longer ones.

    http://www.signaltrailer.com/utility.htm

    Here is another place to try. I have driven by it a bunch of times while fishing the Sky.

    Paros Custom Trailers Inc
    403 Stevens Ave
    Sultan, WA 98294

    I'm not familiar with the "Troutvac", can you give us some more information? Who's the mfg, is there a web site for them etc.? I'm always looking for ideas and new equipment.

    Trouthole,

    Depending on how big you need, I have looked at a trailer that folds up for storage and can be hung on a garage wall. Not to expensive and light enough to be towed by just about any vehicle. I have seen these trailers at Fred Meyer in Burien, Cabela's and some farm supply outfits.

    Good Luck

    Fellas,
    Thanx for the info... To clarify, the troutvac is a 14 ft. NRS Otter outfitted with an aluminimum fly fishing frame. So I'd need at least an 8-10 ft trailer. Right now I'm looking at (in order of pref.)
    Fishcraft
    Elam
    Blackfoot
    SOTAR

    Any insights here?

    thee t

    I think Paros in Sultan can do better on $$$ than Fishcraft. I've seen some for 8-900 bucks there that would work well.

    Roper,

    I also saw a used trailer for sale at the east end of Monroe on Hwy 2. I think it was in a parking lot on the north side of the hwy. Don't know where you are located though.

    Tangent remark...
    I've been looking at the Skookum pontoon boats. Which model do you have and how do you like it?

    The thrill is not in the kill---But to let them go.

    Well if you haven't found what your looking for as of yet. I live in Marysville and in my daily walks(car sick can't go fishing). I saw a flat bed trailer for sale for $750.00 If you interested it is on Beach Street between Tenth and Grove st.
