Has anyone [trailered, launched, or hauled] a 190 Nantucket? What are you using for a tow Vehicle? Please describe how it went. Thanks

Since the galvanized trailer with swing tongue is part of the standard package, my guess is literally every owner of the 190 NANTUCKET has towed their boat and trailer on the highway and launched their boat from the trailer. I am not sure what you mean by "hauled". If you mean loading the boat onto the trailer from the water on a ramp, I bet most have done that, too.

Hi Yiddil,

I have done all of the above a bunch w/ a Toyota 4Runner V8.

The Max weight of the entire rig including trailer is 4K lb.

The trailer was very balanced on the back of my SUV, and it handled really well.
