That's cheap!

Shame it won't collapse to fit onboard without snagging though

Thats what I thought, a couple of blocks could hold it still up in the bows.

Those pictures would be great if you can find them mate.
nothinf wrong with wire on a winch! you just have to inspect it regularly and meticulously.& give it due respect when in use. proper gloves and stuff.

I saw the pictures of the rollers on here and thought thats a very good idea, it was basically two pairs of Pneumatic wheels one smaller than the other arranged on a straight axle on the back of the trailer. |Smaller set inside

One was jockey wheeled size the other was a bit biger. Im rarely at home so my ability to surf is down to a broadband modem and Vista therefore it's limited so finding the pics are difficult, certainly to difficult for me.

I've always been a bit of an anarak about trailers and I make a point of looking carefully at the features of every trailer I come across. That's priceless advice by the way

Calling 5.4 SR Owners

Hi,try a 2 speed braked winch with 6m webbing strop, part No WN007 line pull rated 1180 Kg;Indespension agents Port SunlightTrailer Co Ltd 0151 645 4735 can supply.Keep away from bunks and ensure rollers lubricated.Cross water flows/tides cause me problems.Electric winch with remote cable sounds ideal. Rgd's.
