I purchased plans from Ken Hankinson Associates for a DIY trailer which would cost $800+ to build. (Steel prices have risen dramatically!) And pre-built trailers are out of my price range.
Can anyone recommend any economical kits or alternatives that would work for an 18', 1000lb boat? Cost is of the highest priority. (Harbor Freight sells a little trailer kit for $320, but it can only carry a 600lb boat). Could this trailer be modified somehow? Here's the link for the Harbor Freight Boat Trailer:

They also sell a 1 ton utility trailer that might make a good boat trailer conversion with a tongue extension and bunkboards. Cost approx. $350.
Any suggestions offered would be appreciated.
