1988 26C, Who manufactured the trailer?

Post by Bluewater47 » Sun Dec 27, 2015 3:22 pm

Does anyone know who made the trailers for 1988 26C MacGregors?

I need the name of the manufacturer for my license plate registration form.

Not sure who manufactured them, but Champion Trailers has virtually every part for all of the Mac trailers throughout their production run.

I believe that Macgregor built their own trailer frames with off the shelf axles and couplers and winches. My 2001 was registered as a Macgregor trailer.

The plate on my 88 is Macgregor. Let me know if you need additional information on it.

bobfishmn,

Thank you for your response. It is most helpful. Is there a VIN and if so, please give it to me minus the last 4 digits? I can only read the last four on what I think is the VIN.
