Scorpion 7.5

Looking for a trailer for a 7.5 scorpion!
One question dose it realy weigh
"Weight of hull and tubes 2,000kgs"
If so with outboard & fuel I'm looking at over 2500kg which rules out most trailers!

Hi Nick

Which Scorpion did you go for in the end? RM trailers seem to supply most of the trailers for the Scorpions I've seen so probs best to go there first.

www.rmtrailers.co.uk

Thanks Freddie

Nick, we have an SBS trailer for Blue Ice. Good choice of RIB.

Edit: just looked at our website for details: it's an 8m trailer, weighing 680kg with a maximum payload of 2800 kg. Richard reckons the all up weight (boat & trailer) is about 2000kg. Hope that helps.

We're very happy with the trailer. Bear in mind Blue Ice is a bit of an old girl now. I would think the newer Scorps are probably heavier because of features such as the console seat, wraparound rear bench seat and raised anchor locker.

Hi

I have just taken delivery of a new 8.5 metre Scorpion with a Verado 275 which is a very heavy lump indeed. GJ at Scorpion reckons that including trailer and about 50 gallons of fuel I will be at about 2600kgs, with a trailer nose weight of approx 80 kgs, yours will be lower and so get you below the magic 2500kgs.
