Side posts up from rib trailer with a frame ontop.

This frame will carry a small sailing dinghy (60 KG) above the rib.

Double stacker sailing dinghy trailers are common, rib trailers that will stack a dinghy above: a rare thing !.

Just thought I would ask here, if anyone had any expierence ?.

^^^^^Thats the kind of thing.

We will not need anything as large as that, as its only got to carry a kids sailing dinghy.

Practical advice from anyone who has used one, would be good !.

Bars need to be integral to trailer, not on the rib.

Makes driving on and off the trailer harder.
A 60kg dinghy is bloody heavy to get up there. You probably can't lift the bow up and slide on a roller like you would with a normal dinghy double stacker as the outboard is in the way.
They work for toppers, oppies etc as can be car topped and thats essentially what you are doing.

A frame on rib doesn't work, or any other sticky up bits.

It,s to carry a single kids dinghy above the Rib, Cadet or Topper: 54kg max
so easy enough to lift up with 2 people.

This might give you some ideas:

Presumably a UK trailer maker could take one of those concepts for you...

Or you could just go to a big topper open meeting and you will see a variety of rib + dinghy setups sported by spectacularly pushy parents!

Just remember it's not about your child having fun, what really matters is you show you are a better parent by understanding the rules better so you they can lodge a protest and you will be fine!

I did visit a squad training event, super competitive parents and new EVERYTHING ! , 6k per kid I recon.

My daughter has a tidy but cheap older boat, She sails really well and I can't wait to see competitive "dads" face when she beats little jonny with his brand new everything.

Oh lordy... he's been sucked in easily!

Now - do you have binoculars, a handheld VHF to listen in to the race traffic just in case the RO hasn't twigged you are listening and reveals some snippet of information for the protest committee? You presumably won't have been allowed back without Clipboard and Dictaphone for notes about where she got it wrong...

Is there a reason not to car top it?

You may not yet have made friends on the circuit, but it would be common to have people car share. So you may want to think about building in capacity for 2 boats above the rib. either side by side or mounted at an angle.

What you towing with?

What towing licence do you have?

I will rarely be towing it, but have a licence from before the trailer regs changed+ VW transporter.

It's a club safety boat: I am Junior section bosun ,so this mod comes under my remit.

We have a couple of kids on the Cadet circuit: occasionaly they need to take a rib.

So to save them taking two vehicles/trailers................... The double stacker seemed like a plan.

I shall draw something up that will bolt on to the existing trailer to carry a dinghy above, get it made and galved.

There used to be one carried 2 lasers doing the rounds a few years ago.

No pics but it held them at 45 degrees over the jockey console in the style of a roof.
