Default New Guy, Hello

Hello, this is my first post. My parents own a 2001 2300SR. My family and love to take the boat out in the Merritt Island, FL area. It is currently kept on a boat lift at their house. I am planning to get a trailer, and need to know if my vehicle has enough power to safely pull the boat and trailer. Does anyone know how much this boat and generic trailer would weigh? Thanks.

As you can see, the trailer weight seems to correlate more with its weight capacity rather than the length of the boat that it will be carrying.

If youíre looking to tow a boat with a smaller vehicle, youíll probably need to stick to boats under 13 feet long. Otherwise, youíll need to upgrade your tow vehicle to an SUV or truck.

trailer will be around 1200#.... What kind of tow vehicle do you have?

Wheelbase and brakes are a needed calculation in the equation.
