Decent trailer for Revenger 29

... or similar sized RIB. Most of the manufacturers I'm aware of don't make one big enough. Any recommendations?

Any decent manufacturer will build a custom trailer accordingly. Best to pick a firm that come recomended and near to you, then tell them what you need. Most roller coaster trailers are infinitely adjustable so it's just a case of getting the length and load capabilities right. I'd have thought that Revenger would have a favoured trailer supplier. As a tip, ask for "Bearing Buddies" to be fitted. They keep sea water away from the wheel bearings which is a huge benefit for a distance tower.

Agree with the above post but the preffered trailer supplier may be the one they cut the best deal with

Riba www.riba.be best i've come accross specify pneumatic wheels instead of hard rollers The stepped hull will thank you for it.

In this country

I guess RM, De graff (generate a few good trailers) SBS and Bramber

... interesting point, I suppose, for all owners or "trailed" Ribs, towed by sub 3.5 tonners, in excess of 7.0 Metres long. How do the trailer builders adequately support the transom and keep within the 7.0 plus drawbar rule? If the bow of the boat rests on the winch post, I believe it is assumed, at least by some Police forces, that that is where the trailer starts. If your boat is then significantly over 7.0 metres in hull length, how is the transom supported.. after all it's carrying the weight of the engines in the case of outboard rig...? Just curious really....

Try R & M Trailers at Alesford Hants
They have just supplied one for our 8.1 Scorpion comes with a washing kit fitted to wash out the bearings and the bits you cant hose off
Worth a try

Phil at Revenger has suggested Streamline in Essex for a bunk trailer which he recommends, or Admiral for a roller trailer. Both around 3200 +VAT.

I can recommend these trailers.
I have one.
Solid bit of kit.
I think they will also fit disc brakes if you require them.
Quite a decent website...worth a look.

The only probleam with bunks is you need to submerge the trailer to float the boat on, some times a probleam if the slipway is not long enough.
Our trailer was less than 3,100 with a spare tyre and winch etc.

Parrymore in Staines make decent trailers - small family concern and they were happy to include extras such as bearing savers etc might be worth a call
