Never used one, but only heard good comments on them. I think they produce there own steel work and use indespension running gear from memory.

My 6.5 was on one. I didn't rate it. The rollers were located with mild steel washers and split pins. The roller bars were alloy, the pins corroded to the extent that the washers could ride over them and the rollers would drop off. This was a right pain as on recovery there would be a sharp end of alloy bar with a rusty washer on it looking at my shiny gelcoat. In the end I replaced all the pins and washers with s/s items. Most of the original pins had to be drilled out as they'd grown in due to dis-similar metal issues. Also, the rear bunk would/could flip upside down in the water which knackered recovery attempts. This was dealt with by a crappy looking shot chord arrangement.

From what you describe thats all std Indespension gear.

I've been through exactly the same refurbishment programme.
Drilled out the split pins and replaced with SS Washers and Pins.

I had a better system on my previous Hallmark (indespension) trailer and my current Parrymore.

Meant to say it is impossible for my complete sets of rollers to invert due to their centre of gravity being below the pivot.

I've no idea how old my trailer is however, as I brought it used from Rogue Wave nearly 4 years ago now. The old coupling sub assembly which I've since changed was missing its spec plate.
So it could be the same as your old Hallmark.

My Hallmark would've been early to mid 90's.
