folding road trailer

I have heared and once seen a folding road trailer but no longer able to find them for sale on the likes of eBay. Are they named something specific?

Also how do people find towing with fwd cars, Mine is a golf with all weather tyres which may help and in total a light rig. Being a sib 3.8m with a 25hp 2stroke. I have also seen trailers with carpet bunks along with Two sets of rollers at the back for launching in shallow water would that combo work for a Sib? Thanks

I used mondeo's for years covering thousands of miles towing/launching/recovering a Ribcraft 480 and a 585 with no problems. I did always use a rope for launch and recovery as I don't like the idea of letting my cars anywhere near saltwater.

Your golf should be ok.

I was thinking about the rope idea just to keep the wheels where it is dry and definitely don't want my car going into salt water it may be getting on but is still my pride and joy.

Never get my car wet !! Always have a rope around the towball and push the boat & trailer in, to be honest when beach launching the hardboat there's no other way you'd get the depth !! Big help if there's two of you !

There is a company making proper folding inflatable boat trailers that I really liked the look of, that was until they gave me a quote for one http://www.leisure-trailer.co.uk/ Any one fancy a guess at how much ?

Nope, keep guessing

I would have thought 500 was a fair price considering how small the trailer and payload are, but you are way off.

The actual price with a jockey wheel was just over .......1200 !!!

I recently bought a near new Real Ezy folding trailer. It is extremely well made with independant suspension. Great for boat up to 3.8 m. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Only problem they are made in Oz. So I don't know how hard /expensive they are to get to your part of the world.
See the makers link Home - Real Ezy Trailers
