Does anyone know someone who paints trailers for a decent price?

I agree. Maybe not decent price just a good price would be great. My friend is a bad ass painter. He just wants me to do the prep work and can't get the boat off the trailer.

I was in the same situation years ago and made the decision to have Bear TrailerSports refurbish my trailer.  I think it cost me about $2200 including paint, new bunks and LED lights.

Awesome. I just bought all new LED lights a few weeks ago.

well if you have limited stuff to work with pull the engine out put it on a stand get some tires from A tire shop or build some wood cradles jack you boat up with a sling and engine hoist have couple buddies pull trailer out to 1/4 of the bow on the trailer low the back on tires or wood support then lift the front with couple buddy's then it's off...honestly a lot easier then it sounds but need to pull the engine out if you only have access to engine hoist, you can spend 100$ on one from Craigslist 20ft strap or just strap the pump if you feel comfortable. Bout 30$ a gallon of high performance heavy duty enamel. But you can always mediablast it and powder coat it best option...Where are you located at?

Powder coating is the way to go. However, powder coating has no UV protection and the trailer will fade over time.

The engine is out right now. I have cradles already also. I have an engine hoist. Just seems scary I guess lifting the boat off the trailer.

yeah I was nervous the first time especially since my dad was like this is how we did it back in the day watch this, I was like oh shit here we go but it went smoother then I thought. I think you just need 4 sets of hands 30 pack and you'll be painting in no time. Make sure your cradles are low enough to hoist on to.

Sounds like a plan. I will get some of my friends together and see if I can get it moved over. Thank you

Heres how I did it (engine not removed)
Lift rear with cherry picker from jet. Lift hull in center with jack. Use a block of wood with a notch for "V" of boat to sit in. Pull trailer out as far as jack will allow. Set rear of boat down on jack stands with blicks on top.  Lower jack. Reposition jack where u can get it up and give u some more trailer travel. Repeat as many times as necessary until trailer is all the way out (about 4 or 5 times). Did 2 boats this way. Took about 30 min by myself on shitty asphalt driveway. Good luck. Be safe and be patient. It just looks scary. Good luck.

FYI. Powder coating on an old trailer is not a good idea if you need body work on the metal-what you see is what you get with powder.
I learned the hard way on this and now have a badass metallic powder coat as a primer.

I got a dolly I built for our boat available  in a couple weeks  if you want to use it .you and a buddy can slide it off the trailer onto the dolly.pretty easy. I'll be doing the last.bit of work to the trailer this weekend and next.  So won't need it much after that
