Illusion tower craigslist find

Recommended Posts

I think $2500 is a bit steep, but I really must say that I have never had any problems with any illusion I have ever owned. Sure is is not as strong as the Titan 2 or maybe even the g3, but I think it is still a good tower. With all towers, you have to know there limitations.....trust me, I could probably break any tower or stress crack the boat where the tower mounts. The only tower that I would never have is the carbon fiber illusion.....really bad. Just my 2. Cents.

The same guy has a DHM trailer listed for $2400, which doesn't seem too crazy. 2006 trailer for an 07 VRide. The tires are original, but overall looks to be in good shape.

I was looking to see if it was worth it to replace my 2006 extreme trailer that has been used in saltwater. I am going to go with a sandblast and repaint option instead.


I apologize in advance for continuing my craigslist stalking, it can be a problem at times, or so my wife tells me.

I hear what you're trying to say, but I would go with "flawed"

True. Flawed product that contributed heavily to the company failure.

Mac, I'm not referring to the tower's strength as much as the joints down at the base. I've seen them either seize up solid, get sloppy & cause injuries, or just be difficult in general. I don't know exactly when or what conditions it happened, but it happened often enough that the company had a tough time supporting the product.

No problem bill. I do know there have been bad situations with the illusion . The current boat I have has the illusion and again I have no issues. I do not have any fears about it breaking.... But I am cautious not to push it as well like pulling a Tube from the tower. I do appreciate all your input. If mine ever goes bad.... I would not replace it with the same illusion.
