Mick has it, I donít. It wasnít an option when I got mine, early adopter . I have more staining that Mick, that said, I probably wouldnít have it given the choice. If you are prepared to accept that there will be some degree of staining, then you probably wonít miss it. It looks like a lacquer type coating that has bee sprayed on after the trailer has been assembled. Consequently when you start adjusting the trailer & moving ďUĒ bolts/brackets etc, there are bare patches underneath. I use this for cleaning light staining, very effective

Not sure if itís worth it or not the water still beads on it and runs off if you get it done ask them to do it before assembly then it all gets done
I got a bit of nano guard off a lad that does car detailing to top it up.

Hi Mick, do you know if there is a way to fit those rollers on a standard roller trailer? Mines a bramber roller. I need to find a way of lifting the boat up on the trailer by a couple inches so the keel doesnít rest on the centre roller ...Click image for larger version

You should be able to raise the legs on the roller brackets to gain height. The problem is usually the other way around, I.e getting the boat as low as possible on the trailer to aid launching.

Got yesterday the commercial offer - still feel dizzy ..
I was playing on their site with the configurator and came with the disc brakes + other items to 11.000 EUR - which is already a lot of money ..
What I did not know - this is the "basic" version of the trailer .
The GYRO Trailer is 5k more ...
Not sooo sure anymore whether I am ready to pay an amount for what I can purchase 3 new normal mild steel zinc trailers with drum brakes and just service them every year ..
Need to sleep over it ..

Not wishing to put a spanner into your discussion but I talked at length to the Vanlcaes guys at the boat show, we thought we were on the same wavelength but it turned out we weren't - they were horrified when they found out I intended to submerge the trailer brakes each time the trailer went into the water. They clearly expected that the roller system was so good it wouldn't be necessary. I'm not suggesting yeh or nay, just passing on their thoughts.
