new trailer

Looking to treat my 715 to a new trailer this season and considering the Brenderup 8224Tb. I do notice that the rollers are very different to what I have now though. My current trailer came with the boat and is probably 10 years old. Very substantial build and fat rollers that seem to take the weight under the sides of the boat as opposed to mainly on the keel. The Brenderup kit looks very nice but I imagine a bit of fettling is required to get it to fit in all the right places. How does one do this - do you need to lift the boat and then gently lower it whilst adjusting the rollers to fit?

Also not sure if there is any value to my current trailer and where is best place to sell. Very sturdy, tows amazing but needs a complete brake overhaul and is a bit tired in places cosmetically.

Best price I have found on the 8224tb (2000kg) is 3,350. Should I be considering other options?

I'm a bit lost with all this so any tips/advice greatly appreciated.

Cheers, 715

afternoon 715, small world eh

have a look at the SBS R4/2000EL, worth a phone call, they will supply a 3rd swing beam / roller assembly if you think it needs it, easier to setup with keel rollers

have you got any photos of your current trailer and what sort of money would you be looking for?

Cheers, Chris

Sbs

Thanks Chris - that SBS IS my trailer..! Or at least it is identical (bar the rusty bits on mine...!) Pretty sure it's not called that though - were they called something else previously?

My front support has been modified with some form of wooden block spacer to lift it higher and also the swing rollers. Doesn't look very pretty, but fits the boat like a glove.

Have no idea on the used value of mine - 500?

With vat the new SBS one ends up at around the Brenderup price. I have to say the swing roller design looks better to work with than the keel roller system on the Brenderup.

What are you using for yours - assume that is a 715 in your profile?

Cheers

Hi, as far as I'm aware SBS have been SBS for some time, at least 7 years to my knowledge. Yes, our Revenger is also a 715, nice rib too our 715 is currently sat on a SBS R2/1800EL, been a very good trailer so far and tows the rib well, but could do with a bit of TLC now, still debating which way to go with it. Each swing beam can be adjusted individually to suit the hull, and you can spec and additions you want prior to build to avoid the wooden block situation

I'll have a look for some pics of the rib on the trailer

Cheers, Chris

Had a brenderup, cracking trailer.

Silly "sealed for life" bearings tho. What they don't tell you is that the life is only 24 months !!! Avoid those but I expect they are different on braked models (mine was 750kg unbraked).

Best bearing setup I've had was the spring loaded grease carrier "bearing saver" on a roller coaster, I'm sure you can get those on most makes.

I'm interested in your old trailer !! Have sent PM

Superspeed

Correction to the above, as have had lots of interest in my current trailer looks very much like an SBS but it is actually a Superspeed. They don't make these any more apparently but do supply spare parts.

Looks like it may be heading for a p-ex deal on a new SBS but I will keep informed those of you who have messaged me expressing interest in purchase.

Cheers

@ Chris - gonna go for that one you suggested, 2000EL (if I can make the figures work) as it looks a good fit for my boat. Part of the possible arrangement is that they will help me set it up, so drive in on the old one and drive out on the new.

We could offer the SBS R4/2000EL for 2995 including VAT and may be able to p/x your old trailer. Let me know if you are interested?
