    Sounds like it might not be a bad idea to inventory a spare axle.

    How much are they?

    I keep my axles numbered for just such an emergency.

    My Boatmate trailer axle failed, $2000 and no boat for two months, I’m personally done with Boatmate and done with Moomba if there’s no other options

    Good luck with the other trailer OEMs.

    our first tige was on a metalcraft out of slc utah. you think boatmate is bad, try them.... it was trashed after the first season.
    some oem's used to allow dealers to buy trailers from wherever they wanted but I believe anymore it's pretty much all boatmate unless you are in brack or salt water. seems those dealers spec from companies that specialize in salt.

    our last boatmate trailer went from texas to oklahoma to nevada to minnesota and our current boatmate went from texas to minnesota to nevada and not an issue with either. I'd not have an issue at all using boatmate again but do understand the issues back in '08. that is a long time ago tho...

    Put 3000 miles on a 2018 Boatmate. Great trailer, no issues.

    Each spring I checked and snugged up the bunk board bolts, but that is normal for wood bunks.

    Don't throw out the baby with the bath water as Boatmate is used by many other boat manufacturers so you might get the bath water back. I had my Mobius for 16 years with no issues. The trailer gets no respect but if it gets you from point A to point B it has done it's job.

    What year was your trailer that failed?

    I can't believe that 12 year old stuff is getting warrantied. that should speak to the companies even if it does take a minute to get parts.
