You may need a barn to hang a 6.5.

Yep, or pull it off backwards onto tyres/carpet and pull the trailer out if no grass available. Shove new trailer in and do the rest with winch.

This is what I would do.

Ive joined the forum as the axle snapped on the trailer on our way back from Cornwall last Sunday (on the M5 of all places!!). We got the boat lowloaded home, and we decided that the cost of repair and age of the trailer meant it was easier to replace the whole thing.

We have ordered a new trailer from indespension which we pick up tomorrow, then we have the mammoth task of getting the RIB from the old trailer to the new one on the roadway by the house..

Any advice on doing this would be awesome..

Good to find the forum, and good to start learning a lot more!

Hope to hear from you all at some stage

Hi Kirsty

Welcome to the forum. I am sure you will get lots of advice and guidance on here.

Natalie

Hi Kirsty

I'm surprised you didn't get the lads (Steve / Ron) at Indespension to agree to give you a hand!


If it's a 4.2m, as everyone has said, just drop it on to the floor gently, on to carpet / grass etc (as everyone has suggested), then just winch it straight on.

1. Attach the old trailer to a tow vehicle, to stop the front coming up quickly and damaging either the prop or the bottom of the transom, when you drop the old boat off.

2. Push the RIB off the trailer on to the grass / carpet etc

3. Move the old trailer out of the way.

4. Push the new trailer in as far as you can to the bow of the RIB and attach the trailer to the tow vehicle.

5. Winch the RIB on to the new trailer. Easy!


If you've gone for a roller trailer (something like a CSMICRO or CSMINI?) from Indespension then the trailer will do most of the work for you.

Good luck, but you'll be fine. Take your time and make sure people are keeping an eye on things with you.

The redundant trailer does have a roller or two we presume?
