Rib trailers?

I'm needing to replace the trailer on my 6m Humber and don't have clue what measurements I should be looking at when buying off ebay or suchlike.

Any suggestions?

RIBase
The critical dimension is the length from the bow eye to the transom. This will determine the length of trailer you need - from the winch post rubber to the aftermost roller / bunk.

It's surprising how short your hull may be!

My Searider 4m hull is only about 3m long. Fits easily on an Indespension jetski trailer.

Hi Coach

What model Humber do you have and what engine. If it is a destroyer, you will need some thing around a 1300kg. swing beam is always the easier to use and most trailers of that size will adjust to take your boat.
