I presume so, as they said they are EU type approved but I didn't get the details.

Hi All
I would like to answer some of the questions asked.

Each wheel is designed to take 150kg so any deflection will not occur under normal use, the heavier the boat, the more wheels and keel rollers required.
B&Q would love these wheels for their wheel barrows, "no more punctures"

I am assured that all UK regs re the reversing of these trailers with Disc Brakes has been addressed and is covered by the European Type Approval of these trailers. One of the first questions I asked.

All trailers come with a full EC Certificate of Conformity (COC) document.

Thanks for visiting us at the Southampton Boat Show and for the positive comments.
If there are any further questions you would like to ask of either the Customshop or the Standard trailers, please fire away.

Regards Steve
South London Trailer Centre

And you dunk them 52 weeks a year after driving 500 miles at 70mph don't you ;-)

That does look like its quite high... So you will need to dunk it more? In which case can they do a stainless car too?

I'm not convinced that regularly used trailers suffer more than those neglected in boat parks.

Its probably done about 6000 miles in that time, a mixture of motorway (60mph) and small twisty roads, usually dunked in the sea soon after arrival. Its on its second tow hitch (probably to be replaced again this winter) and its second jockey wheel - so its certainly not had unlimited TLC.

I think they are fantastic trailers I've always liked them and I think they represent a step change forward. My nipper saw them at the Boat Show and he was veery impressed with them. So I think i'd like one

looks like I'm gonna need to find some more work

I am not sure about them. problem is, all my trailers the axels have gone, not the frame. So the stainless bits aren't a problem, galvanised axels - the most important bits will still rust?!

I once picked up an old boat on a galv trailer. Trailer looked old but i was happy to tow it home.
The draw-bar collapsed on the M25. Rusted from the inside out. The outside looked reasonably rust free.
Luckily it didnt break free but stayed attached by a slim bit of metal.
AA home job!

At least if the axle goes rusty you can just buy a new axle.

I too like these trailers.
Thinking about getting one.

Was going to say that they're not really new... You beat me to it.

AFAIK, they're not really "maintenance free" in the sense that they don't require any looking after; they may still leak at the inner seal and may require top up now and again. Most of the ones in the US have a polycarbonate cap that may crack/shatter if thumped, which will cause a bit of a problem.

All the above is from reports; I have standard roller bearings on mine. Not all that different; just that the oil is suspended in soap and released when needed.
