Had a mishap with my pontoon trailer (thankfully the boat is ok). Insurance adjuster has given me an estimate and I need to find a repair shop to take it to. Any recommendations? Will need to be put on a rollback/flatbed to get it to the shop, so the closer to Port Tobacco the better.
Thanks!

Never had any work done by them, but there is a trailer sales/service place pretty close in Newburg just before the bridge. It's close enough maybe you could stop in with pics and talk to them.

IDK if the same people run it, but 20 or so years ago I bought a trailer from them. They upsold me on the tongue jack, but I'm glad they did. It made a huge difference.

I just installed ~$300 (at cost) worth of suspension parts on my trailer. I made sure to get a galvanized axle just for insurance, after seeing what brackish water did to the last one. Hopefully the place in Newburg has a rollback or at least access to one. Good luck!

I invested a ton of $ in my slingshot trailer, and it wasn't even rusty!!! New axles and swing arms, replaced the entire electric brake assembly, storage locker, updated electrics, lights and wiring, customized tie downs, new wheels and rubber, even had the steel deck coated with Line-X.

The previous owner abused it terribly, the wrong wheels, axles bent from total overload....

Oh yeah, and a custom winch and winch stand that gilligan made for me.

Was just at the Newburg service place. Guy said he couldn’t do it. Needs welding done which he said he couldn’t do. So my search continues. But since I’m down the road, lunch at Cap’t Billy's is in order!
