I have to buy a trailer for my new (to me) 2005 21ft Ventura. Any thoughts on trailer type. I'm not necessarily needing a brand recommendation but rather a trailer type. I read some information on this sight speaking about ensuring the trailer has keel rollers with bunks for lateral support. What do you feel? It didn't not using rollers. It also cautioned using bunks for weight support - just lateral support.

I would like to hear some opinions. I have to purchase in the next few weeks.

Bunk ......

I've been towing my 210 on a Loadrite since 2002. Cradles the boat perfectly and is very easy to launch & recover the it by myself.

Thanks. Does the weight of your boat sit on the keel while on the trailer with the bunks there for lateral support? Does your boat have keel runners?

I saw your video 65 miles out. I have my doubts that I would have the nerve to venture out 65 miles out into the North Atlantic but it was great to see....thanks for posting it.
