    I wonder if my 07 310 would fit that trailer, or if the trailer would be too long.
    Any idea? I'm interested if it will fit my boat.

    If apears that the bunks are adjustable, you should be able to
    adjust to your hull without to much hassle. You will need confirm your tongue weight but that can be adjusted by relocating the bow stop. Considering that this trailer was previously set up for a 34', you may need to adjust the with of the bunks. The overall position of your boat may be to close to the tongue, but again, readjust the bow stop position and you should be good too go. The stern should not extend past the rear edge of the bunks but considering this trailer is set for a 34', that should not be a issue.
    You probably know this already, but definately pay attention to the regulations prior to purchase. Here in Wisconsin, with regards to towing boats, it does not matter what the actual weight of the loaded trailer is. It all has to do with what the CGVW (combined gross vehicle weight) of the weighted trailer and tow truck. If it is over 26,001 lbs. you need a cdl.
    Combine the weight of your boat and the weight of the trailer, guessing close to 18,000 lbs, you will more than likely need a 1 ton dually to do this legally. Ask me how I know this!

    My boat was 11'6" wide and 36'6" long with the swim platform. There are some adjustments that can be made. Let me know if you would like some dimensions taken. I ran this with a F250 and the whole CDL thing is if you are a commercial carrier. I have permitted across multiple states when I bought my boat in 2009. I exceeded the 26,000 lbs and had no problem as a private individual. The permits were easy and not an issue, but you should check with your state for sure. It seems they just want you to buy a permit. Indiana was the worst between WI,MI,IL.

    I'll have to look into it. I'm fixing to head out on vacation, if you still have it when I get back I'll do some measuring/research.
    Thanks.

    Greg, when you get back from your trip of a lifetime and are still interested in the trailer, give me a PM and I'll give you a recommendation about having the trailer cut down if it is too long for your boat.

    Thanks Mike. I think I'm gonna look around more for one that's more for my boat, length and width.
    BTW, we're at a resort called Vahine Private Island, and it's absolutely the best. Headed to Bora Bora tomorrow.

    Pchanson8, was you truck a half ton or larger? I am thinking of a trailer for my 340 only to launch, pull, and store each year. Wondering if my expedition is heavy enough to pull the boat out in 4x4 low obviously.

    It was a F250 diesel. I would not recommend anything less.

    Thanks, I only plan on pulling the 340 a 1/4 mile from the ramp to winter storage. Figure if the Expedition cant do it will borrow a friends one ton.

    The latter would be the correct plan. An Expedition is not near strong enough in my opinion. I have been pulling 11,000 lbs with a Suburban 3/4 ton for years.
