Same regret!! 2.5 year old trailer.....Since this topic came up recently I like to add that I regret not upgrading to a galvanized trailer this time around. I think it was only about an extra $400 or $500 to upgrade. Last year I towed the trailer literally one time on about 10 miles of a gravel road and now it's really chipped up. Some brands probably have better quality paint than others but I was told by the salesman how great the paint is on this brand (Phoenix) but it looks worse than my 12 year old utility trailer that has seen tons of gravel roads. I wish I would've sprang for the galvanized
Dealer talked me into the extra wide chair too, wish I would have gotten the regular tall chair.This topic came to mind after reading another thread in which a new purchase morphed into a discussion about the size of the motor. I am not sure if this exists already, but I thought it would be a good spot for owners to communicate their regrets or mistakes when purchasing their boat. Thus it could serve as a more concise reference instead of having to scour through hundreds of threads. For example, I added the extra wide captains chair on my 2014 2350 RBR. I love the chair, but it narrowed the walkway between the chair and the bar counter enough that I wish I had gone with the normal sized chair.
Now that damage is done, maybe have all damage areas prepped and coated with quality truck bed liner coating in black. Would be tough for next gravel road attack. If spend time taping straight transition lines, would look factory.
I don’t think that’s rare at all. Maybe its a regional thing. Everyone I ever talk to in Michigan suggests the power assist steering for anything 150HP and up. I don’t know anyone near me with a 150 and up on a tritoon without it....My used 2017 22 SSRCX SPS Yamaha F150 had it ordered from factory and it makes it so refined to drive. Fairly rare to come factory on a 150 hp boat.
What size boat and engine if I may ask?I regret not getting a bigger engine. I got a big heavy boat with moderate power, but when I fill it up with people, I can't pull a tube
Also would have probably gone with seagrass over the carpet, but time will tell how that seagrass holds up.
Kells hasn't been on the forum for a few years, but I was able to find out from some further digging:What size boat and engine if I may ask?
