The Boat Trailering Guys
I am looking for some information on how to setup a drive-on trailer. I have talked to several shops and each has a different idea on how it should be done. I need some ideas. Are there specific items I need to have (other than bunks of course). .

GEORGE: By a drive-on trailer I presume you intend to use this for powerloading, in which you drive the boat on to the trailer at the ramp. You need to make sure the trailer bunks are adjustable either in or out from the tire so there is an ability to move them to such a position that the hull is supported. In addition, with a tandem axle, you need to be sure the transom is even with the back of the bunks. This ensures an even weight distribution between the axles
