Thinking of new trailer

can all you owners of 5.85m /6m ribs help. Is there any chance you could post your current trailer and if possible with photo of the roller set up. I am having hellish trouble on recovery of our boat and after much deliberation it is the twin cradle set rollers!!
Any help would be appreciated.

Have you considered making your own - it could make a great thread!

Neil as TG days behave. Although I am quite handy I don't think I could tackle that job. It's a matter of confidence in the finished product.

Gullwing for my 5.85
Found it easier to recover onto than a dual swing beam.

Billy, I had an SBS swing roller double axle trailer for my previous RC585, worked fine. I'll see if I can dig out a photo.
