       I bought one that came with my Intimidator, cost my $1300.00 to restore.   They do exist, but are becoming more rare.   Not sure if its because they are all aluminum?  or simply not many were made.  Someone may have to correct me, but mine is a Conroy trailer, but was marked Glastron.   That might help in your search engine.   They also came in different sizes as well, mine fits a 20.

As usual thank you for the reply and info. I will see if searching that manufacturer brings me any luck. Also your trailer looks great.

They do come up for sale on occasion but very rare and would probably have to drive to get it.

I bought a aluminum one off of local craig list for $750 very lucky find.

I was gonna say. As shown in Gregg's link, they are not all aluminum. The one under my CV23 is all Steel.

Hyperacme thx for that I found this info sheet looks like there were 2 trailers made by Conroy. Steel and aluminium but it looks like the aluminium is lower and wider which is what I would prefer to find but it might be easier to restore a steel one?

      there is a CVX-18 on here for sale with Glastron trailer, do some horse trading and you might have a decent trailer of your dreams.

Hi Plugcheck,
Sweet looking trailer! I'm looking for Glastron sc-20 trailer for my CVX18.
Can you tell me if you needed to do any modification to the trailer, specifically the bunks, to get the CVX18 to fit? Did you need to relocate or change the angle of the bunks?  Looks like the trailer is a nice fit from the pictures. Did you find it to be too big lengthwise, any modification there? Thanks in advance!

There is a trailer rebuild thread on the site from when I restored mine.  It came from NY with a basket case CVX 20 Intimidator.  It is all aluminum which is somewhat a challenge, the alloy cannot be welded.  My cvz-18 is currently using it, and the hull shapes are close in design, so I didn't change the bunk angles.  You may notice a bit of bunk extending past the 18's transom, they will come to be in line with the Timi.  I've seen a few for sale lately, they are around, but most will need some resto work.

thanks for the quick reply, and yes I found your post, good info!
Question, did your trailer have a manufacturer tag with the model number? If so could you check for me what it is?
And if you do know of any trailers on the east coast please do let know. I know of a steel one that's a bit far and a bit on the expensive side, and will be more expensive with a a decent resto as well. There are a few conroy x-19 with trailer for sale out here. If i can score just the trailer, that might be a less expensive option if the bunks don't need to be moved.
