Has anyone had any experience with the disc brake trailers that Rapide put together. Or can anyone recommend a good manufacture where the maintenance has been economic.

RIBA Trailers

Mate of mine has a RIBA trailer for his 8.5m diesel RIB. Its a fantastic looking piece of kit - robust yet properly engineered as opposed to the "two girder" approach. It has disc brakes and he is extremely pleased so far. RIBA trailers are in Belgium. I can probably get contact details if you wanted 'em.

I have seen those RIBA trailers and I reckon them a lot. I saw one at Ocean underneath a very tasty Diesel Cabin RibandI thought itwasthebesttrailerI hadseen. They even had walkways built on to the trailer so you can puish your boat off. mmm nice

I have a couple of Indispension trailers both bought from new and I hate em, so my advice is steer cleer of them.
