    hello all,
    Was hoping to get some advice on what trailer would be best for a Parker 2520 xl. I am looking to get the boat within the next week or so and am in need of a trailer. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

    I have an aluminum triple axle with disc brakes for my 2820xld. I would suggest a ABT trailer. Just my opinion

    Thank you for the suggestion. I appreciate the feedback!

    What do you pull that boat with?

    Give Alex at AB Trailers a call. He does very good work with larger boat trailers, imho.

    I have a 2004 Chevy 2500HD diesel 4x4 with air bags. It works great and the 4x4 is completely necessary to get up the steep ramps and when the tide is low.

    Aluminum 10" beams full length to transom. Bolt together, not welded.

    Tandem axle Dexter 7k torsion 8 lug with 13" kodiak disc brakes on all axles.

    Electric over Hydraulic brake system.

    Four bunks rear, two bunks front.

    Dual spare with full hubs.

    LED lights heat shrunk connections and poly bow roller.

    This is how I set my trailer up with my 25 Parker XLD. Granted, it was a deep vee so more weight but with this trailer set up, I pulled with a 1/2 ton pickup from Key West, FL to So Cal no issues. The trailer would slow the truck down...

    That's is some really great information. Thank you! I will be pulling mine with a Tundra crewmax 5.7L. I'm hoping that will be enough truck to tow it.

    Check Pacific Trailers. I personally like galvanized steel with leaf springs. They are heaver but much stronger. Get it with all wheel disks you will need the stopping power towing with a smaller truck.

    Pacific Trailers in Chino just released an aluminum I-bean line of trailers, you might want to call them with Shad's specs.

    The Tundra motor should be able to tow but i'd trick your trailer out with electric of hydraulic brakes on every axle because that would be my concern with a Tundra. It's a 1/2 ton truck.
