New Trailer has arrived

Can't wait to get the boat transferred over to the new trailer tomorrow! Picked it up from the dealer yesterday! Has all the new stuff I wanted - swing tounge, disc brakes, oil bath hubs, LED lighting, reverse lock-out and-backup lights, spare, alloy wheels, etc. Hope it tows as well as it looks!

If anyone needs a nice 2002 black 23' Performance trailer (XTI, LSV, Sunscape, etc), let me know as the old one is for sale!

I also have a Prestige trailer (originally purchased boat from dealer in Chicago before relocating to NC). Trailer was made incorrect for the boat the first time. Tongue weight was off - I could unhook from the truck and the tongue post would barely touch the groud - the boat would just sort of hover. Fishtailing was aweful at highway speeds - almost to the point of being out of control. Called the guys at Prestige - they made a special trip from southern Illinois to Chicagoland to have one of their engineers look at it. They discovered the trailer was made incorrectly and agreed to build me a brand new one. During that process, we relocated to NC. They coordinated with a local dealer down here to have the new trailer shipped here, and have the dealer swap out the trailers for me (needed a boat hoist obviously). The guys at Prestige definately went above and beyond (sort of, I mean - they probalby should have replaced the trailer since they made it incorrectly) - but never even once tried to argue their way out of it or repair the trailer I had - just agreed to give me a brand new one. Props to the guys at Prestige - if you're ever in the market for a new trailer - definately consider them! Personally, I like the styling (wheels, striping, etc.) of them better than the boatmates. The thing pulls like a dream - could not be happier with Prestige. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine!

Great info/experience, thanks for sharing! I had a buddy follow me up towing the new trailer while I had the boat on the old trailer. So I haven't pulled it myself yet, but it sure looks nice going down the road and tracks laser-straight.

Is Prestige a casulty of the recession? Their website's dead...uh oh!!

Unfortunately it does appear that Prestige has "gone out of business" - meaning they sold their assests to Heritage Trailers. See link for information about it. That's too bad - they were an amazing company with an amazing product - hopefully Heritage will continue that.
