    Trailer Restoration for 2001 SAN 210

    Here is my rebuild from several years ago on my trailer. This trailer was in pretty bad shape when I bought the boat, but cleaned up real nice!

    One bunk was broke when I bought the boat and one of the pieces on the inner fender was loose as well. The trailer was obviously red to begin with and matched the boat, so I’m not sure why someone had rattle canned it black?

    This is the old surge brake set up that I tore out.

    New electric brakes. I did this because, at the time, I had a 1/2 ton pick up and really felt like my surge brakes were not working well enough. These work great, but I foresee issues down the road possibly with water and getting rusty. Who knows, that seems to be a problem with all boat trailers though...

    In the paint booth. Sure is convenient having friends in the right trades!

    Took all the guts out of the surge coupler. Used like that for a couple years and then ended up putting a bull dog coupler on once this old surge set up wore out.

    And a perfect match! We actually matched this color with a flashlight during a thunderstorm while on the boat lift. I’d say we got pretty lucky!

    Strong work on the fit and finish on this.  How are the electric brakes holding up?  That can be handy in the hills for sure since surge brakes can "ride" the brakes too often

    The electric brakes work great. I do not need or notice them much now because I have 3/4 ton diesel. On the rare occasion I do pull with a half ton that has a hook up for trailer brakes they come in handy! I fought wiring issues for a while because I ran out of wire on the install at the very end and had to use some cheap wire to fill in, but eventually that all gave way within a couple years and I replaced with good wire.
