The Duuo's capacity is 400 kg your talking same weight as mine 100 boat 62 engine + kit. Extream trailers do a 350 only weighs 95kg. Towsure use to do build your own trailer kits just need galvanising when it's built.

why not just use a normal boat trailer,you can still carry boat to the water if you want. and if you take the stubs off for winter will store on its side easy.

you do of course have the option to launch and not carry the boat...

Main issue is storage during the season, the boat has to go on it's side as I need the garage space and there is nowhere to store the trailer easily (short of dismantling and feeding through a rear door to the garden) hence needing the most compact solution possible.

When you google folding trailers (images) there's some that are perfect for you max but they seem to be in Australia.

I've not done it but I've seen roof bars added to the top of the trailer, this allowed the sib to be strapped on a running board that was attached to the roof bars down each tube.

This then left the trailer to be filled with engine, kit, camping stuff etc.

>>> be for something heavier - probably 100 - 120kg boat all in with fuel + engine 50kg.

Is this for a Y-class? Is that all they weigh? Take off the weight of a full fuel tank and give or take that leaves 75kg for the SIB at your lower figure. A Honwave 3.5 alloy floor weighs that (well 73kg) and surely the Y-class is far heavier build than that??

Can you roll a trailer on its side like you do with the boat? With a well mounted pulley and perhaps something to stop the wheel sliding/skipping sideways it doesn't sound too hard. You must be taking the engine off to roll the boat though - so how important is it that the trailer can carry a sib with engine installed?

You could leave boat on the trailer engine off deflate the boat & strap down the boat, so having about 650 MM sticking out from the wall to assist lifting a couple of cheap chain blocks from machine mart. Or lift it up to the roof if the garage has an Apex roof.

I don't get how a none boat trailer is easier to store than a boat trailer ???

I saw some red pike trailers (road sign, traffic light) ones for sale somewhere (forgot where for not a lot and thought they looked perfect for a sib with a little modification but still need a car sized space to store anything much smaller won't carry much anyway.

SIB on a small (non boat specific) trailer

Well my camping type trailer stands on end at the back of the garage...takes up about 2ft of floor space. If I want to get the boat trailer in I would need to dismantle it...which is possible but a pain.
Can just make it out here behind boat.

Haven't carried inflated boat on it but could easily take off sides and floor and add some bunks. Sometimes carry an outboard clamped to a timber frame.
