The trailer that came with my 1985 Capri, wing keel is disintegrating so repairs are not going to do it. What brand, type or any other advice can you give me? I would prefer of course, to get a good used trailer, rather than a new one, but who knows??

Welcome to the forum!!! I assume trailer looks like the photo below. What parts are disintegrating? Might contact your local trailer fabrication/repair shop for a estimate, assuming the frame has not corroded completely. I would expect it would be cheaper than disposing your trailer and buying a used one, if you can find one, or a new one. Good luck.

Thanks for your help. It's a rather different trailer and the parts that are really disintegrating are the cross bars below. I've been told they cannot be repaired. They are welded but the rust has really eaten away at the ends and at midpoint. So I'm looking....
