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

The one I have ordered, has an extra keel roller on back. Also slightly longer than Jeffs, to double my capacity, all i need to do is add an extra axle-Chasis is the same as twin (all over kill on my part, but I am planing an upgrade in size in the future and may want to keep the trailer.

When I get it, will post picks.

Mike

P.S. Have attached pics I have been sent..

So, Honourable Members of the Ally Euro Trailer Club (Euro-Trash), how did the season go with the new rigs? Any issues? Did they float off? Anything you would spec differently?

Slightly off topic, but how freely should the guide roller move?I have a used Hallmark rollercoaster trailer but no clue how tight the bolts should be in various rollers?
Should they all be tighten ones the boat is placed in a good position on the trailer, or should they be left semi tight so the angel can vary pending on the boat position on trailer?
Thanks

they should be able to swivel with a small amount of pressure.
but
I don't like indispensions much but always seem to wind up with one,

Be careful of the split pins holding on the rollers to the axles. split The axles are oval in profile and the washers that are kept in place by the split pins have round holes. Eventually the space between the washer and the axle bends the split pins and the washers ride over the split pins and the rollers fall off. usually when you are recovering the boat and gouges your hull. Keep your eye on that

another thing I found was that the arms would sometime flip over when the boat was coming on to the rollers I used to tie a loop of bungie around the bottom axle and the trailer frame to stop this happening


back on Topic I do like those Gullwings

Update on mine..

Finally took delivery of mine in Sept, due to them keep selling mine and me not being in a rush..

Works really well, Gullwing had set mine up pretty much before it arrived so only slight tinkering was needed.

No floating problems as yet..LOL

Boat drives on nice the rollers bring it nicely into line every time even with 6/8 knott tde trying to swing it.

On these trailers the rollers are held on by special plastic clips, havent managed to break any as yet...but a big bag of spares supplied with boat just in case!

absolutely no critism as yet, the only niggle i had was the connector on the trailer for the brake flush didnt match my hoselock connector on the flushing hose i use, soon sorrted though.

Willl post pics next time i launch/recover.

Mike

That would be interesting. These trailers are potentially useful for boaters like Paul who are at the max weight limits for towing and want to shave a couple of hundred of kilos off the Gross Weight.

Update on aluminium trailer?

I'm considering buying a 1500kg braked trailer from Gullwing and now that a few months have passed I wondered whether Kernow Buoy and BingoMike are able to share their thoughts about life with their aluminium trailers; how have the rollers stood up, are the hubs still in good nick, any issues with the brakes, etc?

Similarly, if anyone else has bought a 1500kg braked trailer from Gullwing, I'd be interested to know about your experiences?

I also noted the thread started by SW Rib Charter back in March last year and wondered if anyone knew what facts had now emerged regarding the 'failure'?
