    Default Trailer restore

    A guy called in and said he had a nice Rogers with a trailer that needed " a little love"..... lol When he showed up at the shop I could barely believe it made it home with out leaving the boat on the road around Barstow.. The frame had literally been broken in half and patched back together and the frame was so twisted the boat wasn't even sitting on the bunks. I tried to talk him into a new frame but he really wanted to keep the original trailer for the boat so we worked with the budget he had. I think it came out pretty good and it makes the boat look like a whole new deal. Those Rogers are pretty bad ass!! It's a pump gas 468 that runs the Needles area and runs around 90. Great looking boat John!!!


    I figured you guys would like to see some trailer pics. We converted the tongue to a removable slide in with a pin so it would fit in his garage and added a v block up front to keep it from bouncing as bad.

    Before and after the tandem conversion..

    Thanks for the compliments. The customer was debating a new trailer for around 5k and this one was restored with new everything for around 2500. He was very happy with the end result and really wanted to keep the trailer to keep it all oriiginal.

    Mark the removable is a much cleaner look than the swing IMO.

    Default single to tandem

    What is involved in going from single to tandem? I have a single trailer that looks exactly the one in the pics. Can i just add another axle in front of my current axle? Does the current axle need to be relocated? I have two single axle trailers that i can use to make one tandem. What are the benefits? Is it worth it? Thanks for any input.
