I would tighten the bolts on the rear guide rollers, if they move you may bend or break the arm with the boats transom when launching.

Haven't got it wet yet so intend tying those brake lines up so they dont hold water, greasing the exposed brake cables and wheel studs if they're not done. Anything else?
Well ive gone an ordered one now, slightly longer to accomodate utilising it at a later date for bigger boat. Should be here in couple of weeks or so..

Bob is a great help and full of information, long phone calls but got details settled in the end..

Mike

P.S Do we start an 'Alli trailer' club now!! LOL

Could do but I might get black balled from the ebay blue cover club!

Well done Mike, hope you'll be pleased, Bob can't half natter can't he! Nice guy though. Managed to get the boat on at the weekend, pleased with the way it went, I've got to move the rollers to avoid all the chines but the boat was definately easier to winch on (so my son said) the rib came on and immediately forwards rather than being lifted up then up again and then down and on as my swing beam trailer used to do. Very happy with the way the hull is supported all the way along too.

Looks good, Cant wait for mine.. Did Bob offer you the LED lights? They sound good, but wasnt sure how it all goes together, probably obvious when trailer comes.

You going to adjust rollers with boat on or keep taking on/off adjusting as you go along till you feel its right? Let me know how you get on, might save me some hastle LOL

Knot Yet might want to organise a bulk purchase, so we can start a club LOL

Real Progress ?

Fantastic to see some design now being aimed at this market.
The two types of ally trailer look great.
Kernow whose brakes are they using on the Gullwing?
Your boat looks very comforatable on there.
So we can see how much weight saving is achieved (by using alloy) on the trailer chassis plate what is the empty trailer weight and what is its gross weight?
With no centre keel rollers there is a lot of force trying to split or seperate the roller beds.
When first bringing the rib onto the trailer how close was the bow/keel leading edge to the first cross beam?
I am looking for a trailer at 3500KG with the max boat capacity. This will avoid empying fuel tanks to get down to weight...
thanks
paul

Hi Paul
Gullwing use knott-Avonride brakes.
Trailer gross is 1500kg
Unladen 250 KG (230 actual weight) My old Indespension is 1600 and 400, Gullwing estimate roughly a 45% weight saving.
Take your point re keel rollers being forced apart but there are 6 supports for the roller beds, Gullwing have offered keel rollers especially on rear crossbeam if I think necessary. I adjusted the rollers along similar lines to my Indespension and managed about a 2" clearance, that was fine but I've got chines taking the weight so will need to adjust out and then up hopefully to give same clearance. If thats a problem I can move the roller bed backwards in relation to the rear cross member so the rear rollers will lift the bow sooner.
Couple of pic's that Gullwing sent me before I purchased
