    Replacing Trailer 1996 Bayliner Cierra Express 2252-gctid356861

    I need suggestions on finding a roller trailer that will hold my 2252.

    What brand of roller trailer are members using to trailer their 2252?

    I'd like to find a galvanized roller trailer.

    My boat weighs about 5,200 lbs so of course I will need a tandem with brakes on each axle.

    It would be great if I could find a used one maybe less than 5 years old.

    One of my concerns is that if I have to order the trailer how can I be sure it will fit the boat properly before I buy.

    I currently have a 1996 Yacht Club tandem trailer. I guess I could call them up and just buy the same model.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I suggest you get a bunk style trailer, They are easier to load and support the boat better. Torsion suspension and Galvanized would also be a great choice. Just my 2 cents.

      I am going through the same thing right now - looking for a trailer for my 2750.

      There are a lot of trailer manufacturers out there - start looking local to you so it is easier to get your trailer. Also Craigslist, internet.

      Also I see your in Texas and a lot of the manufacturers in Florida (trailer heaven) will ship to Texas free. I highly recommend going that way.

      Most manufacturers have "templates" that allow them to fit your boat to the trailer. Mine is a 1979 2750 and all I contacted had the pattern for mine, so yours will be no problem. If they don't, find out how close it will be, you may need to tweek it a little.

      Watch your weight, at 5k boat and 1500 lb trailer, your right at the limits for a 7k lb trailer - I would go 8k lb or more.

      Hope this helps

        Just a comment, no brand suggestions, stick to a roller trailer, easier to load, much easier to launch, and as I have attempted to comment on here many times, provide as good if not better support that a bunk.

        Ok, maybe a brand suggestion or 2, I like Shoreland'r and Karavan.
