Brenderup 8222TB 1600KG

Hi All
Does anyone know if these trailers are any good, mines had it and after reading the "check you trailer" thread I have decided to take the plunge and get a new trailer.

Details of the 8222TB 1600KG can be found at:

http://www.honeyfieldtrailers.co.uk/...t_trailers.htm

Look forward to your thoughts.

Cheers Shaggy

Brakes and bearings

hi

Trailer looks fine, suggest that you check out the type and make of the hubs. the brakes and bearing type are critical.

do ensure that the trailer model you choose realley does have the capacity to remain legal. fuel tanks full, auxilary outboard (get you home) etc add surprising amount of kg. Chocolate, flares (pyrotechnic type)and sunglasses

we like to carry all bags & luggage in the boat as the land rover is too small!

Paul

I love the idea of a gangway on those trailers; I always get my feet wet slipping off the bars on the trailer whilst trying to launch:

Our club rib sits on a Brenderup trailer. It has sealed bearings and the trailer board electrics are hard wired through the chassis with a standard trailer plug at the back end to connect to the trailer board, so even if you take the board off there is still lots of wiring running through the chassis and the side white lights which can't be removed to launch the boat. I know there are going to be problems with this in a couple of years.

The trailer itself now (12 months old) looks good quality but only time will tell. Can't say I am looking forward to sorting out the bearings and electrics though.

We have launched a friends boat from a Brenderup trailer a few times, and its not perfect by anymeans.
It cost him about £500 more than an equivlent from admiral, and because its that 'keel roller' design instead of the full rollered trailer you have to be spot on with the nose of the boat when recovering and the back is easily pushed off the rollers by wind/tide.

Shaggy,
Have a look at Tyrone Snell Trailers at Longdowns, I bought a multi roller from him last november, really nice guy, excellent service and to date a faultless trailer.

the build quality of Admiral trailers is an order of magnitude below the Brenderup so if the boat doesn't launch well it's not set up properly or specced properly.

Mind you if you are going into the price range of brenderup then have a look at RIBA I think they are the best around and I do do a lot of trailers spotting!

Brenderupp

I use a twin axle model with a 200kg rating under my Excalibur.
As a road trailer it is the best built I have come across. They could have been a bit more liberal with the rollers though. I set it up myself after initially having problems recovering and now it is ok. The electrics don't seem to mind the brine too much as yet but it pays to check and flush connections.

The hubs have individual flush connections and so far so good after 8 months.

Brenderup Trailers

Some photos of the club trailer showing the hard wired electrics running through the chassis, including the white / yellow side lights The good news is the wheel bearing caps have the word "Waterproof" written on them, so we won't have to spend lots of time greasing bearings, or will we?
