Roller coaster 3 braking system

Now that I've finished the RIB I'm now going to give the trailer some attention.


Basically it's a RC3 but a sometime in its history someone has stripped ALL the braking system, there are no backplates, no cables and no hitch. At the minute it's just a Bradley cast hitch that's on it.

What I'm asking is.... What's the best way to go with this? As I'm starting afresh what make should I go with?

personally i prefer knott brakes, and that happens to be what my roller coaster3 is fitted with. kits can be bought complete - ie backplates springs and shoes. shoes are 203x40, outer sheath on bowdon cables are 1000mm (dont know actual cable length)

I just did something similar last weekend. In my case I replaced the axle and the new one came with knot brakes fitted, then added new cables, compensator, M10 stainless rod up to a new Bradley hydratow coupling. Trying to work out all the parts that were needed in advance of the job was a real pain but actually fitting everything was pretty easy.

Do you have a ball park figure as to what it cost?

Great, I had thought around the 500 mark but never took into consideration the Vodka And Tonic.

Damn that Osbourne!
