Side posts up from rib trailer with a frame ontop.

This frame will carry a small sailing dinghy (60 KG) above the rib.

Double stacker sailing dinghy trailers are common, rib trailers that will stack a dinghy above: a rare thing !.

Just thought I would ask here, if anyone had any expierence ?.

^^^^^Thats the kind of thing.

We will not need anything as large as that, as its only got to carry a kids sailing dinghy.

Practical advice from anyone who has used one, would be good !.

Bars need to be integral to trailer, not on the rib.

Makes driving on and off the trailer harder.
A 60kg dinghy is bloody heavy to get up there. You probably can't lift the bow up and slide on a roller like you would with a normal dinghy double stacker as the outboard is in the way.
They work for toppers, oppies etc as can be car topped and thats essentially what you are doing.

A frame on rib doesn't work, or any other sticky up bits.

It,s to carry a single kids dinghy above the Rib, Cadet or Topper: 54kg max
so easy enough to lift up with 2 people.
