    New Trailer Lead Time

    Anybody tried to order or buy a new trailer lately? EZ Loader is just 4 hours away from my home and it will still take EIGHT to TEN weeks to get one! I'm looking at late May or early June for delivery.

    Everything is backed up now it seems... 16 weeks for castings from the foundries we use; normally 4 - 5 weeks. Other parts we use are "indefinitely" backordered now.

    A year ago I tried to buy a new trailer and they told me they would not take the order at all they were so backed up!

    Might call Boat Master in Ft Myers fl. They are a smaller builder of custom trailers. I think "the best" ones out there.

    I am buying new trailers from:

    Integrity out of Michigan
    Strongback out of Florida

    I also had a Manning (out of Michigan) built last year and it is a very nice set up.

    I have had several manufactures in the past and these guys continually prove to be the best for what I like and I am pretty picky (custom alum. built and not price point trailers)--Buy them looks and function, keep them for life.... My new order from integrity took 6 weeks, my last Myco took 5 months

    It's now mid September and no trailer. 26 weeks and counting. Anybody ever heard how EZ Loader got its start? They made rolling equipment for the farmers in eastern WA state. They were always humping like crazy to make deliveries for fall harvest (summer production). They would switch to boat trailers after the harvest surge (winter production). Supply chain problems my foot! (Covid19) They've been making farm stuff all summer and not touching their boat trailer production.

    Back to the top.............got my trailer the 2nd week of October. 28 weeks. It was part of a 5 trailer delivery by the distributor. All were pre-sold. Another 5 trailers were due the next day. 3 of those were pre-sold. My dealer has another 20 on order. He won't see any of these until JUNE 2022! They've canceled plans on being at the Seattle boat show in January because they have nearly nothing to sell.
