Does anyone know the approximate gross weight of a 21' with skip tower, with saddle tanks?  I have a Honda 130 and a Honda 9.9 kicker. I think it's around 5600lbs but thought I'd ask to verify. Fuel and cargo can be factored in (either way). I'm buying a new trailer and want to make sure I have the weight correct. I know I can go to a scale but thought this might save me the hassle. Thx!

That's awesome, thanks. I ordered a Tuff trailer with    gross weight of 6000lbs. I should be good. The trailer was a hair over $12K.  I might need a therapist!  The next heavier one was a pile more.
I'll be selling my single axle Escort trailer w/new lights (that actually work), new(er) wheels and tires (16"), extra set of wheel bearings, swing tongue, manual winch.  Bunks with rollers up front. It's never given me problems but I think it's a bit light for my boat.
Available late April. If anyone's interested make me an offer.

$12K for a trailer for 21' Arima?
That number is shocking to hear.

I'm not trying to be negative,    but they seems ridiculously high.
The Tuff trailers look Really nice.....but wow.

I was shocked too!  I checked other trailers (didn't look at EZ Loader) and they were in the $9+ range. With add-ons they would have approached the Tuff, not quite but close. I just wanted something I could feel comfortable pulling over the pass etc. And you know, I'm not getting any younger and I can't take it with me. By the time I need another trailer I probably should be boating.
