Re-trailer a 13'...Help!

I've got a 1969 (pre-smile) 13 and the bloody homemade trailer that came with it is shot. Last straw was the blowout at 75 MPH last night coming down the NY Thruway. Fifth flat/blowout in a year!!!
I want to buy new trailer...the one requirement is large tires (12" not 8" rims)

Since I see you are from NJ, try contacting Touchstone Transportation Engineering in Toms River. (Rt 37 East Bound between Fishcher Blvd and the Bay.
They manufacture trailers and can modify theirs as needed. I picked up a trailer for my Montauk last spring, added keel rollers to their bunk trailer, and added electric winch and got out of there for less than a grand. The trailer is all galvanized and built like a tank.
I bought a smaller trailer there several years ago for a 12' aluminum and paid less than $400.

Suggest going to even 13" if as it sounds you do a lot of high speed driving. Very little difference in cost.

Get one with 13 inch or larger wheels. Your bearings will last longer and you will find it much easier to buy replacement tires.
