Chances a bass boat trailer fits a 18ft jet boat?

Any chance a bass boat (nitro z-7 18' 8" boat) trailer (made by tracker marine) would fit a 18ft jet boat?

I'd say a pretty good chance.
If not, you can always fudge the bunks over a bit to get it to fit. Worst case scenario, moving the bunk brackets.
The axle placement might be too far rearward for a jet that has a big block in it., But that's easy to remedy too.

Just fyi, my Miller fits nearly perfectly on a day cruiser trailer, no bunks were modified to fit.

He already sold it, i don't think the bunks can be adjusted on that one easily, they were welded.

What about trailers designed for center console? Like this? Square style bunks. This one has some rust on the cross members but price is pretty good (~$2K).

That one will have to be completely reworked. Vertical 2x6's probably aren't doing you any favors. If you have the ability to relocate the bunks, it looks like a stout trailer.

I?m not sure where you?re at or if this is still available, but this is in Sun City, So Cal. You get a free hull.

I have a trailer already but is 3" steel and showing some frame rust spots and axles frame connectors have had to be relocated/replaced already. Not in a rush to get another but would like to get a smaller lighter single axle (dual axle fine also, pros and cons for both) aluminum trailer. This heavy dual axle steel one is overkill for a 2,000lb boat. I am on east coast so finding "old school jet boat" trailers isn't happening. Thus was curious of alternatives people have used. I think bass boat style trailers would work (similar v-hull profile).
