Trailer for 8.5 metre RIB, Hire/Borrow

I am looking about for a trailer suitable to carry 8.5m rib, circa 2000kg some time at beginning of 2014.
I am possibly moving boat from Hamble to Dartmouth for service work and although I have a good few towing companies available, I would try to load at Hamble, have it professionally towed to Dartmouth and then leave on trailer whilst work completed and then towed back before lifting off again.

Has anyone a trailer that might suit and may be prepared to loan, hire etc to me for maybe a week to two weeks in new year.

I might just consider buying a second hand one but thats the last option

Rib charter and Rib hire with

Hi - I can help with this. I have just purchased an 8.6 rib which is still in the IOW. The trailer that comes with it is at my house. It's been in the sea only once in its life since 2008 and I don't believe the wheels got wet. It's a roller coaster trailer. 07831 862679 if you want to chat, small rental fee.
