Coastline Trailers

What experience do you guys have with Coastline trailers? We talked with them on Monday about getting a new trailer. I was less than impressed with the lady in the front office. She was quite rude, but I have heard great things about the trailers. Having a hard time reconciling the two. Thoughts?

I worked for a dealer a few years ago that sold them. We had very few problems but they were not that easy to work with when there was a problem. I think they really believe their product is free from any defects and anything that happens is the owner's fault.

I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with them the few times I’ve had minor issues with my 2017 trailer and taken it over to their place in Seadrift.

bought my first coastline trailer this year, I've put about 400 miles on it so far, it's under a 24' bay boat

It's about 8 years old, seems very well built, pulls great, so far it's one of the better built and pulling trailers I've had

It may be a good trailer, but that attitude from their staff would turn me off, move on.

I have a dual torsion axle Coastline for my 21' Kenner. Overall, I've been happy with it and it is well made...except a few things.

The carpet covered plywood the fenders bolt onto was bolted on with some pretty small bolts and lock nuts, and can't recall if they have washers off hand. The road vibration (I'm guessing) sort of wallowed out the bolt holes in some places enough that the fender was loose. Easy enough to fix with larger bolt / washer, but it seemed like a cheap short-cut in the initial design/build. Granted this took place over a couple years, but I think better hardware and maybe larger diameter washers during the build would have prevented it.

I also don't think the angle of the bunks is quite right for my hull, because over the years there are distinct wear marks in the gelcoat in bow section. Almost like the bunks are either too close together and/or slightly wrong angle. Coastline said they work from a mold for that specific hull, but who knows...
For reference, the original trailer when I bought the boat in 2001 didn't do that after over 10+ years of use.

Lastly, consider location - I live in Friendswood so it's just too much of a haul to bring it back to Coastline for any type of service.

My experience with them was the same as you described.

It's been alright, but the fenders rattle like crazy. The trailer itself is solid.

Never dealt with the customer service

I have a fix for the trailer fender rattle. Aint cheap but it does fix it for good.

Learned it from paragod and have repeated it on many trailers.
