But are they as easy to use when launching and what about manoeuvrability by hand (that is moving around the yard when not attached to a car)
I will be using on a circa 6M Rib
two axle trailers
v difficult to manouver by hand, almost impossible depending on weight on board. i could not move mine even with no boat on board (750kg trailer) but the comfort of knowing if you have a problem with one tyre/bearing you can get to safety or home on the other 3 perhaps.
specify taper bearings rather than sealed
single axle trailers, both of mine handled towing at speed much better than the double axle trailer i had!, easy to manouver,
single axle may come in lighter than double axle so this could be important if you are near the weight limit for towing of your car
when getting the next trailer i will be going roller bearings that can be removed and checked and would consider a double axle after my incident
