The trailers seem to be bolted together with clamps etc. not welded. There's plenty of options to tailor make something. Second hand buys may equal the cost of sourcing materials and fixtures such as wheels, jockey wheels winch etc.

Look at this on eBay:

That is the kind of trailer I want but has to be collapsible for storage and to be able to put it in the caravan chassis for taken with us on holiday will be able to copy it

Some tinker time with the trailer today. The bunks were sitting 3" higher than needed, the transom wheels couldn't be fitted unless I wriggled the HW back enough, the bunks at the stern extended a bit far causing problems loading/unloading.



I decided to drop the bunks 3", which in turn ment the SIB didn't need to be so far forward for the bow to rest on the winch stopper.



This allowing the transom wheels to be fitted/removed or left on without the need to wriggle. I even had the option to mount the wobble wheels on the back of the rear crossmember, supporting the transom.







Happy with the result as I can easily dry launch and wheel to the waters edge on my own.

Looking really good like the idea of the wheels at the back does it make a difference taking it on and off the trailer when in the water

I take it off trailer and move on the transom wheels for launching, meaning the trailer never needs to dip into the salt water. The trailer wheels really make a difference, unloaded and loaded myself today with the engine mounted.

I looked at that prior to the wheels I bought. Looks ideal, but due to the long bunks on my trailer I wouldn't have been able to fit it.
