Stellar boat. Nothing beats the sleek look of blinged-up Wakesetter trundling along through the water...one of the best looking towers out there too IMO!

Sweet boat man! I've seen a few others that have painted the speakers on the tower to match and it really makes the boat look a lot better.

Welcome to the VLX family... nice boat, and a congrats on making the plunge!

Also, I am a big fan of the white G3 tower... really sets the boat off.

I bought my vlx from gull lake in August and remember seeing this boat there. Trevor was great to deal with. Make sure to come out in may for a malibu owners gathering hosted by gull lake marina

Are you able to swap out trailers? A white trailer with some nicer rims would really step up the look of your setup.

It still blows my mind people actually care what trailers look like. Its just a way to get the boat to and from the lake, right? Although the boat/trailer manufacturers are happy to charge the crap out of customers for those fancy setups...

As someone who has a year old boat, I would opt against a white trailer. They show rust stains quickly. I thought it was just mine, but I noticed a local who has a 2011 SAN 210 with the same issues on his trailer.

People nit picking the trailer, surfgate, etc. It was a left over '12 that he got a good deal on, congrats. The wake crowd had gotten way too critical in my opinion.

The majority of the time a boat is seen (unless it is on a lift) is when it is on a trailer. By your theory, who cares what the boat looks like, it is just a way to get on the water.

Yea, that totally correlates to my "theory."

Go ahead and waste money on an optioned out white trailer that will show rust in a few months.

I could care less what my boat looks like on my trailer in the garage, or going down the road on the way to the lake. The primary use case of a boat is on the water, right?

completely agreed. the basic boatmate is more than enough for me. its about what sits on the trailer not what the trailer looks like itself.

and if you only want to get on the water you should just buy a inflatable raft at walmart

What colors did you end up with? Trevor is the man. Just a straight shooter . They are gonna absolutely kill it with the Malibu line.
