Alan, Petrov,

It's kind of you to give the information on RIBA trailers, but as the feedback on de Graaf was good and they are only just down the road from me in Chobham, I think I will go with them as I need one quite quickly to tow down to the coast to pick up the boat and they have the suitable trailer there that I can look at and buy immediately.

Thanks again,

Tim

I have had a De-Graff trailer for my last rib and would have no problem whatsoever in reccomending them. I found the trailer to be bomb proof and really liked the bearing greasers, you filled them with a grease gun and they had a spring to keep grease going in constanly.
Would I buy another De-graff before the usual makes.........defentley

Hi Tim,

bought a new De Graaf about a month ago. Double axle 2000/4 ADJ model for Humber 7.5 with Merc 175 (similar I guess to yours in size/weight).

Very pleased with it. Tows well (Penzance and back!), only a couple of launches so far but works well. Double speed winch, hitch lock built in but lock barrel extra, single handed manouevring and hitch up is not hard, hitch has hold open switch to engage ball when you drop on.

Spare wheel, bearing buddies were also extra. Trailer is registered in own right so issued with a VIN (vehicle ID number like a car). Not sure what benefits this gives but easier to trace I guess as number plated and etched in various places.

Two banks of hull rollers and one of keel rollers. Those, winch post and hitch length are all adjustable with 17 & 19mm sockets.

Lighting bar and cable included. Lighting bar posts slide inside chasis member and add at least 1.5m.

If you need more info then PM.

regards
