      The boat had sold by the time that I drove to the dealership.....:(  It was still there, so I got a chance to look it over. Unless there were issues with the engine or tranny, it was a great boat at that price. The tan exterior was bland, but I would have wrapped it anyway. Thanks for looking. Only lasted at the dealership a whopping THREE days..:)

      Greetings all, I’m looking for any suggestions. We just spent a fantastic week on Lake Shasta with our 2007 Response LXI. We live on Kitsap Lake in Bremerton, WA, and have owned the boat and trailer since new. The trailer is a Boatmate single axle that sees little use except annual or biannual Shasta trips; otherwise it sits in a garage while the boat is on a lift.

      At the completion of our vacation, we loaded for the trip home but only made it a mile or so from Jones Valley resort when the left rear tire started smoking and we pulled over. The torsion bar on the left side failed and the fender is resting in the tire. We had the boat/trailer moved by flatbed to a shop in Redding (a Midas; only because we have connections with the owner). 

      We sent our kids home with friends from our same area and my wife and I are staying in Redding tonight; maybe longer. Research on this this site and others indicates this may be a common failure on our trailer, and it may require a new axle that needs to be painted and then shipped from TN. That may take a week or two and we both have work responsibilities. 

      Does anyone have any suggestions as far as a trailer rental in the interim, although I have no idea how I could the transfer the boat. I’m considering an upgrade to a tandem axle trailer too (yeah I know, duh), but again am struggling with what is available here and how long to acquire. 

      My tow rig is a Suburban that I don’t need at home so I could store here and travel home some other way; or else drive it home and come back over a (painfully long) weekend. 

      Any thoughts or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated!

      There are many post on here about how people have gotten home. In your situation I think I would jack it up and we’d if solid. Then take it easy got the trip home.  Once home that would give you ample time to get it repaired.
