CLH Trailers

I can confirm the ruggedness of CLH trailers. Speak with Chris or Andrew.
Trailer lengths made to any measurement, axles - if twin axles is all that's allowed then specify twin 1800Kg axles. They will put on as many roller bunks as you wish. We tend to ask for 4 sets with our longer boats.
We regularly tow between Wales, Hull and Scotland - never been a problem.
Prices are very competitive

RM Trailers..

I have no association with the above company other than as a customer.

I have bought 2 boat trailers from them and both have been fantastically designed and built. Their prices are also very good.

I would thoroughly recommend them.

Cheers
Tino

Alexis , surely you realise driving 4000km whilst towing 3.5 tonnes on an unbraked trailer is

a. Illegal,

b. Extremely dangerous

Unless of course your vehicle is a full size truck.

Sure yes I agree, I just mentioned that because all breaking systems tend to break (seriously) down even after carefull fresh water washing and may cause problems.

Of course I would do that only if the boat had to be towed fro a couple of klm.. obviously such a trip cannot be done safely without a breaked trailer!!

Thx for pointing that out if I was unclear.

You're welcome.

As you know one of the companies you mentioned in Greece is marketing trailers with all stainless brakes with 5 yr warranty, and sealed/ oil bath axle shafts. They are of course VERY expensive.

Or you can buy one from the many mentioned here and when back home, leave towing to the marina staff and remove the brakes
