Default Eagle Trailers

Just got word today that Eagle Trailers are ONLY going to be built for the new boat manufacturers. No longer available through a dealer network. Bummer for everyone! They are nice trailers! I might have gotten one of the last ones for dealers...

Not sure why they would choose that route. Sounds like a questionable business practice.

What about all the customers that need new trailers. Seems weird to me. Here they have all the patterns they need for about every boat and year out there. That has some serious value!

I would assume that new boat manufacturers have the volume demand and do not appreciate the competition, so.... if ya wanna sell to us, you ONLY sell to us....

I hope they survive the next downturn like 2008 that put 1/2 of the boat manufacturers out of business.
Seems a little short sighted to me.
