I'm looking to buy a new boat trailer. I went to Cabelas and they handle Shorelander and Eagle trailers. I was looking at the eagle because the salesman said hands down this was a mush better built trailer. As far as price went he said they both were around $4000.00 for a 3500lb trailer. I was hoping to get some input on the eagle trailer. I currently have a shorelander. Thanks

Eagles are much heavier duty and custom made for each boat hull. If you do much towing go with the eagle.

I just bought a Heritage trailer from Rock River Marine.  Heaviest-built small trailer I've ever seen...going under my 16.5' Alumacraft.  LED lights, vertical load guides, ratchet straps (integral), swing tongue, Tuff-Kote paint, aluminum mag wheels and spare, sealed vault bearings (no need for buddies)....lots of extras...cost $3150 after tax and delivery.


Fully welded, 4 bunk design (no adjustable brackets that come loose).  Trailer has a ton of stuff...just a comment, nothing more...

Eagle for sure! Had a shorelander before this one, no comparison.

Hooklinesinj ernie, you ever spray b siliconew on your bunks? Makes boats slide off much easier.

Eagle trailers are ok except for the fabric on the bunks.  Very poor.  I always submerse mine completely when backing in and taking it out.  The fabric on mine, 2013, is not that great, coming apart in different spots on the bunk.  Called Eagle, left them a message and they never responded.  Customer service is undoubtedly poor.  Bunks are good for launches that have plenty of water.  Rollers are much better on shallow lakes.

I agree the Eagle trailers are more of a custom beefier better built trailer.  They are made to handle heavier boats.  Personally if they are within a couple hundred bucks, I would go with an Eagle allw the way.

I am in the same position.  Looking for bunk instead of roller.  Any value to a used shorelander roller for 17' Lund?

I've owned one since 1998 and it's been a great trailer, never a problem with lights. Replaced bunk boards last year..
