I don't see how a fully equipped 7 metre RIB on a trailer can have an all up weight of less than 750Kg. I reckon that even with a 6.5 metre RIB it would be borderline at best.
I would hate for anyone to get into trouble by following bad advice posted on RIBnet. Just because Manos thinks it's OK, doesn't make it safe or legal.
Current UK legislation allows unbraked trailers to be used with a maximum gross trailer weight of 750kg or half the towing vehicle's kerb weight, whichever is less.
The National Trailer & Towing Association has a very useful web site at www.ntta.co.uk
with clear guidance about all aspects of towing.
