Converting a trailer from Runners to rollers
Question really… is it possible to convert a trailer with runners to rollers? If so, which company should I order the rollers from, and is it easy to do?
I have 3 small keel rollers, but 2 large runners either side. To launch/recover I get the trailer ˝ way in the water. I’ve seen people with roller trailers recovering in much less water.
My trailer is from SNIPE and I mailed and called them, but they don’t seem to be the most responsive company around! My current trailer JUST fits in my garage with about an inch to spare and I also have a sturdy custom built jockey wheel and an extra winch on it, hence I would rather convert it, rather than buying a new one.
Where I go the slipways often dry out at certain times of the tide, and in many cases have a dirty great drop at the end. I just thought having a roller trailer would give me more choices. The terminology in the above post maybe dodgy, but I hope you get the drift?
