So Vanclaes trailer with disc brakes and GYRO system ordered ...
Since more than half a year the Scorpion sits on the Vanclaes trailer . I got the weight on the nose right and towing this combination is just a pleasure . Beside of the weight the trailer runs like a shadow behind the car - absolutely calm , very pleased with the disc brakes and the boat sits on the rollers like on a cushion . Towed this year from Berlin to Easdale and via Southampton back to Berlin - runs really nice .
Launching and recovering is a dream as well - especially with the BoatCatch .
What does not make me happy is the fact that after just this 6 month a couple of air rollers are already flat ! Before I bought this trailer I talked to Vanclaes telling that air rollers are a no go based on bad experience I had in the past - but with cheap Chinese rollers .
I was told that they are using rollers which are made of far higher quality and are used for medical equipment , wheel chairs etc
While the other option - the plastic wheels are deforming with a heavy boat sitting on the trailer the recommendation was to go with the air filled rollers .
My Scorpion 8.1 diesel weights with full tank nearly 2.3t but this weight should not be even critical because the trailer is rated for 3.5t !
The good news is that Vanclaes without hesitation will replace the flat rollers under warranty but the bad news probably is that this problem with continue and I will permanently replace occasionally rollers .
Anybody out there with a Vanclaes trailer who has the same problem ?

I know them but the load capacity is far to low to carry the weight of the Scorpion .
They would deform .

Yes- there are heavy duty rollers available but beside of price they will add enormous weight to the trailer

Drop Mick a line, he has the pneumatic tyres & afaik no problem. I have the solid wheels which I prefer. Which tyres have failed, are they the ones at the end of the gyro roller? I.e the first ones that the boat hits when recovering?

No - not the end rollers - somewhere in the middle . Randomly - inner rollers , outer rollers ..

That could be worth it to try !
But would be better to disassemble first a few rollers to see where exactly the air leak is .
May be its the valve which is ripped out - then the bicycle repair kit will not have any effect .
