Thanks Rogue wave. We use SBS trailers at work and being honest i couldnt tell you the last time i saw a big Indespension one. Its the R4/3500B that i am looking at. Hitches are not an issue as i use a NATO hitch instead of a ball. The boat is on a Rapide trailer which is a great trailer, just the boats too heavy for it! Thats how the dealer supplied it to me even though i spec a legal trailer for the boat!!!

I use a nato hitch on my trailer and it is superior they can graft the ring on easy enough to the SBS coupling arm. I have bought some smalller braked NATO Couplings for my 5.4 trasilers

They are great for off road with the trailer and it lessens the chance of loosing it off the back when your driving. The fringe benefit is it stops the average thief procuring your boat or careless people moving it!

I certainly found my twin axle SBS a strurdy trailer without being too heavy, it was well made. I found spares much more expensive than indespension products, but they were of higher quality, and you get what you pay for

I did a set of bearings on it after 2 years (sealed type) thinking nothing could beat bearing savers on an ordinary axle, but was surprised at how good they still were and wondered why I bothered as they were still perfect, and got dunked regularly

All my other trailers for smaller boats were rollercoasters which were fine, but under egineered compared to the SBS, and too bouncy on the road without being set up right, even then they flex too much IMO
