I just happened to have this site saved from when I was looking for trailers. They're in Kemah, TX. I eventually built my own out of an old powerboat trailer. If you can cut steel and weld, it isn't that big of a deal.
Custom Sailboat Trailers

What size columbia. If it is a larger columbia, like a columbia 30 or such, it isn't likely to have a stock trailer, and you'll probably need to make a custom trailer for it. Also, most monohull keelboats can't be launched from a trailer, so you'd need to pay for a travel lift to splash the boat every time you wanted to go sailing, and pay for a travel lift to put the boat back on the trailer when you were done. The costs of hiring the travel lift, plus the scheduling logistics will make the cost of a regular marina slip, where you can be on the boat and cast off in 15 minutes any time you want, seem really cheap. Just my $.02 worth.
Besides, didn't you just post that you were the new owner of an American Spirit 23 or something like that a few days ago???
