I bought a new ribeye 600 with 115 on last November. It comes supplied with sbs 1500kg single axle trailer. This is obviously what the manufacturer recommends. Tows great and have been launching off the beach with it over the last 6 weeks with no problems.

Hi Michael,

that sounds a very tempting offer! I'm not able to call just at the minute but I should be able to later.

I see from your link that you have a depot in Gosport, is that still the case? Otherwise Plymouth is a bit far!

Thanks.

I got caught out buying what I thought was a bargain trailer years ago.

I got rid of it pronto and bought one from Arther at Degraff and never had a problem since. Make sure you get one with bearing savers as it's a pocket saver too. 6 years without a bearing change!

Incidentally, has anyone found problems manoeuvring. Twin axle trailer around by hand?

I can't reverse it onto my drive due to room so have to unhitch and push it. I've heard they're hard to steer in a situation like that?

You will find that it will be very difficult to push a twin axle by hand.
