Can't tell you much about the bearings cos it's dark outside now, but I've just recently taken posession of a shiny new Admiral R1000... and very pleased I am too.

Some nice little touches like a key lockable hitch; sturdy jockey wheel mounting; two speed winch and a winch brake. All nicely bolted together and galvanised as well. Not bad value either, but buy it through Jono Garton as he does a better deal than going direct

I had an unbraked 750kg and now have a 1000kg(800 payload).
Very pleased with both but havent had either for very long.
The twin swinging beams are very good although the trailer rattles like crazy on the english lanes,I suspect all trailers do however,one tip is to take the blanking plugs out of the end of any hollow sections so salt water doesnt get trapped within allowing corrosion to start.
Both of my trailers have had the smaller wheels(10 inch?),this I have found great as the whole boat sits lower which is important for me where I keep the boat.

I had one for just over a year now. No problems and appears to be good value for money. I recently replaced the bearing as one had completly brocken down. To be fair, I think that most bearings will suffer in this way, especially if you don't grease them fairly regularly.
