bunks to rollers conversion

Can anybody point me in the direction of a decent conversion kit. I will need a pair of rollers and the back and a pair at the front. It is only for my 4m searider which is currently sitting on bunks.

Can't find any decent kits around.

Cheers

Leave it on bunks, it really isn't hard to recover or launch an SR4 on a bunked trailer-in fact, they're so light the bunks make it easier to recover solo. (drive it part way onto the bunk so it sticks, get out, hook up winch.)

You'd be better spending the money elsewhere.

I did convert a trailer once to rollers but I used the Gulwing set of rollers, they were effectively a metal "bunk" with the rockers arms and rollers (6 a side I think it was)
fitted to it. Worked fine. Not sure if they are still trading.
