New roller trailer comments

Evening all
After my eventful purchase of a Bayliner complete with an illegal american unbraked trailer i posted regarding converting it to a braked roller type trailer.
However after visiting the boat show this weekend i saw this

EXT1800 : Extreme Trailers, Engineering for the 21st Century

Looks to be well made and put together with swing type bunks and plenty of support wheels.
Overall cost of mine to convert the axle to braked change the hitch and to convert to rollers was around 1450.
Just wondered if anyone has any experiance or opinions.
Thanks Pete

There are a few trade members on the forum who deal with trailers so they are worth a call, may even come on your post shortly.

I bought an extreme trailer years ago for a sib which was great.

I also have a friend I met at SBS this year who builds them I will pm you his details if you want to call him

Forum guy is -Trailer Guy pm him also

Cheers for the nod C2, much appreciated. We supply Indespension trailers at pretty good rates.

As for the Extreme trailer - I used to deal with Jamie et al, when I ran a couple of Indespension depots many lifetimes ago, and supply him trailers and running gear. He now makes his own trailers, which are excellent.

Top bloke, in my experience, and good product to boot.

Just see what's best suited to your needs, what comes with the best spec and, of course, the best suited to your budget. The rest of it's easy
