You might want to check the relevant law in Portugal as EU regulations now make building your own trailers illegal.
Don't know when it would have come into force for you, but in the UK that was 2012 & I believe it had been in force in the rest of the EU for a while.
How hot are your Police on these things?

tks, for the replay,

well I did some research before make the move, and to this kind of trailer it┤s ok. it is under 300kg, and only needs to be Aggregate to the car insurance, and have a register number, that he has...

it┤s made of an old camping trailer....

Do they? Or do they just mean you need to put it through a SVA? It's odd if you can make your own car but not your own trailer?

Sorry for the slight thread hijack there. Hopefully these comments will be useful:

(1) Think about lights and if possible leave them on (or at least make very simple to fit / remove). Using a trailer can simply shift one load of faffing around to another!

(2) Are you going to immerse the trailer? If so then rust protection is key. If not then with a sib the key is making sure its easy to get on/off. HDPE bunks rather than carpet?

(3) Can you engineer it so that the transom and engine are supported well enough to tow with the engine fitted?

(4) If you are not going to immerse the trailer - have a think about whether there is space / use in having a secure box for lifejackets etc on the trailer (you can probably do that anyway but needs more thought). They are quite bulky on a holiday trip when the car is pretty full, and if thrown in wet everything else gets wet too. Its also somewhere to put your straps, etc when you are out on the boat.

(5) Consider the position of any "winch post" - will it stop the boot opening?

(6) Somewhere to mount the spare wheel. [Ideally you make it so the car jack and wheel brace will work on the trailer!]

(7) Do you have any other toys you want to take too - e.g. kayaks, bikes, etc... if you can design a way to carry them too you will possibly use the boat more (or if you can design a way to use the trailer with them and take the boat off...)

I'm sure someone will be better placed to comment on the trailer itself.

I probably worded that badly, to be road legal it would need - in the UK - to be presented for & pass an IVA.
https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-approval/...hicle-approval
Don't know what the requirement is in Portugal but the reply from the OP says that very light trailers are exempt there.

I note Poly makes reference to HDPE being used for bunks.
I have considered buying a sheet of HDPE and covering my bunks with as opposed to my current carpet set up.
Anyone got experience of HDPE vs carpet bunks.
I dry launch so I pull the Sib on and off the trailer on its transom wheels.
Just curious if the HDPE would make life a little easier??.

The trailer has lights, and that is a concern, the water on them. Maybe some silicone on them will help, will see…

(2) Are you going to immerse the trailer? If so then rust protection is key. If not then with a sib the key is making sure its easy to get on/off. HDPE bunks rather than carpet?

It┤s going to be painted with anti rust paint….

(3) Can you engineer it so that the transom and engine are supported well enough to tow with the engine fitted?

Yes, a transom saver is on the way

(4) If you are not going to immerse the trailer - have a think about whether there is space / use in having a secure box for lifejackets etc on the trailer (you can probably do that anyway but needs more thought). They are quite bulky on a holiday trip when the car is pretty full, and if thrown in wet everything else gets wet too. Its also somewhere to put your straps, etc when you are out on the boat.

The cover, because the boat will carry all the “trash” as you say…

(5) Consider the position of any "winch post" - will it stop the boot opening?

Don’t know if it’s going to have one, time will tell…

(6) Somewhere to mount the spare wheel. [Ideally you make it so the car jack and wheel brace will work on the trailer!]

It has a spare wheel.

(7) Do you have any other toys you want to take too - e.g. kayaks, bikes, etc... if you can design a way to carry them too you will possibly use the boat more (or if you can design a way to use the trailer with them and take the boat off...)

Ahahahaha,,, we with the boat only do boating….

I'm sure someone will be better placed to comment on the trailer itself.
Your comments, were great tks….

thank you all for your comments...

just say for you to know, that in Portugal, the trailers above 300kg, have to have proper licence and insurance.

above that weight, they are Aggregate to the car, its like an Extension of the car..

once again, tks
