Trailer for Futura

Im picking up a Futura mk2 fast roller tomorrow and will want a trailer very soon.

Am i correct thinking i can use a bunk trailer so the inflatable speed tubes can sit either side of the bunks?

im expecting to find a trailer for around 350ish, can anyone advise if that sounds about right?

something like this? Around the 600 mark, depending on spec. Cheaper things out there, all horses for courses! If you see something, stick a link up, happily give you an unbiased opinion.

We used a bunk trailer for our Futura Mk 2 - with the bunks positioned between the speed tubes and the sponsons and also a bunk at the rear to support the transom - a Snipe trailer from memory (like the lower picture here Snipe Trailers and Cradles). No rollers in sight !

Morning! Absolutely new, yes.

Full Spec:


Specification
  • Gross Vehicle Weight: 400Kgs
  • Unladen weight: 100Kgs
  • Carrying capacity: 300Kgs
  • Length capacity: 4.8m
  • Overall trailer length: 4.8m
  • Overall trailer width: 1.6m
  • Single axle with 4.00-8 4 Ply wheels & tyres
  • Hot dipped galvanised steel

650 all in. If you're local I'll happily drop it off. Lead time's usually circa 4 weeks, but if you were desperado I could put you towards the front of the queue, so poss a couple of weeks.

I think that's a fair price, but see what Snipe come back at, I may be miles out!

No probs. I may be able to arrange a local pick up for you (Manchester way). Drop me a line if I can help. Happy hunting.
