New trailer for 26M

Post by Nauti Nell » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:16 pm

I am in the market for a new trailer for my :macm: . I can't find it now but I seem to remember that someone had one built in the Raleigh Durham NC area. I was curious if anyone else may remember who or where it was. I would prefer aluminum dual axle. Our future has a lot of towing in it and I want to be prepared.
I found the link to Gazam's guy in FL but that was for an X, and a 12 hour drive. NC is only five hours.
Thanks for any help in this matter.

Turned out awesome!. Self centering, no sway, 5K lb axle.

26M version from same manufacturer. http://www.macgregorsailors.com/forum/v ... a0d25413ed

Thanks so much for the info!!!!! We will be adding an axle due to the added comfort of being able to limp into a safer place in case of a blowout.
