We can always throw it on the trailer and tow it to destinations behind our F250 for long weekend to weeklong excursions! (not worth it to take it down for just a weekend though...sacrifices of having a "large" trailerable.)
That is exactly why my last boat was a MacGregor 2-22 on a trailer. $800 for summer and $400 for winter storage. And I sailed her on Lake Michigan exclusively.
