Re. coolbox it's a Coleman Extreme... you'd have to check dimensions inside tubes to know which capacity model it was but one of this range... https://www.alternate.co.uk/Coleman/...roduct/1355787

A folding road legal boat trailer is a sizeable thing and floating around in a caravan not ideal have you thought of a side mounting roof rack and stick the boat on there for short journeys

Iirc the “load” capacity of most caravans is surprisingly small. I’d not be surprised if boat, engine and trailer were enough to hit the weight limit before you’ve put and clothes, water etc in!

All of that is over the top and way more than I am going to spend.


I am thinking Axel with wheels. and draw bar from 50 x 50 box section with Hitch and small Jocky wheel. The axel and wheels come off like a dumbbell and the draw bar is bolted to the axel. Maybe mud guards, with the light board on the transom.


Please don't plonk on about the legality. I know about that and we have heard all of that so many times. If it needs to be legal I will make it so


This thing will take no more than 150 kg in weight

Don't want foldable I just want one that comes apart. Most small trailers are delivered in a box and you put them together.

It is to take a Honwave T380 IE

Just in the process of finishing one off, it weighs 60kg with the bunks fitted, it takes about 15mins to assemble, this is a photo of the basic trailer I will get some up to date ones showing the bunks and the brackets I have used to make it easy.

Now that is just the sort of thing I am talking about.

You can be sure that some keyboard warrior and paper pusher will be along soon to say why it is illegal and the world will end if you ever take it on the road. Your insurance will be invalid and you are being irresponsible actually making something that is solid and good yourself.... Plates are available on ebay by the way

To me it looks like just the solution I was thinking about.

Where did you source the components
