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.

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?

Brender up gets thumbs up from me!

Hi shaggy, we have just bought our second Brender up trailer, same as what you are looking at. We have only launched/recovered once so far so cant really comment on that one. The older trailer(2yrs) was excellant under our 5.5m Humber, just had one small issue with the back set of rollers tilting over just as you approached the trailer, it was simply sorted with some bungee cord which kept it the "right way up". Simply put, would recommend them.

Just to bring this thread back to life..

Shaggy. Did you go for it?

I have decided to start looking for a new trailer. I just seem to keep having (self inflicted) problems with mine.

Brenderup trailers are doing a small SBS discount untill 1/11/05. I had a look at them and chatted with Simeon Penn at the show and was impressed with the build and Simeon himself. Much more impressed than with the other trailer builders at the show.
Negative points:
They still have the internal wiring.
Positive points are;
5 year waranty on the sealed Knott bearings.
St/st Bowden cables.
Heavy duty construction.
A main agent is 3 miles away.
They will PX my old trailer. They have massive keel rollers.
They will set up the new trailer and transfer the boat from the old trailer.

Basic price for an 8222B 1500kg is £1864 and 1800kg is £1974 inc. VAT.
I also fancy the gangway for £96 and the hub washing kit for £60 as extras.

Should I look further.

Hi Mark
I bought the 8222 TB Twin Axle for approx 2200 GBP +VAT, pleased with it apart from the bow stopper isn't low enough so the top stopper sits on the front sponson and the bottom rather than both on the bow.

Also this results in the winch line rubbing on the bottom stopper as you are pulling the boat up until it rocks on the back roller to a more horizontal position.

Now I did buy the 6520mm model and my RIB is only 5.8, I am hoping to get a new 6.5 boat next year to go with the trailer so I expect this problem will be resolved with the bigger boat.

Ill post some pictures at the weekend as I'm going to contact Brenderup for advice on my current setup.

The lighting plugs have spade terminals inside the plugs so if someone that is helping you luanch pulls the cable and not the plug the spades can work lose and shorting out the break lights or indicators, you then have to replace the blown fuse and put the spades back on

Remember to take off the lighting board when not in use, I left it on for a week and the copper contacts in the lighting plug corroded the male to the female together on the rear lighting board so i could not get the dam thing off when I wanted to lunch took an hour to sort it out and lots of WD40

I am going to solder the spades on this weekend to stop it happening again, and grease the lighting connector.

Over all I am happy, well I have to be at that price

Shaggy

I had a Hallmark for years and it was really good. My advice would be..have "bearing buddies" fitted, they are superb. Don't have the type where the rollers are held on with split-pins and washers. Pins rust, rollers fall off.

We have really good manufacturers of trailers in Scandinavia, for example Brenderup.
But i have been buying a couple of RIBA trailers and think they are great, maybe not always the best small details like rubber on the lamps so they bend if you hit something etc but the trailers are genuine, to brake a RIBA you have to crasch it on the highway.
I also register the trailer into swedish plates and than they tested the trailer before (that was a RIBA 2500) and they said that they never seen a so well balanced trailer before.
Another trailer manufacturer that has really gret solutions on their trailers are a Swedish brand called TK Trailer, dont kow if they excist in UK.
But take a look at their homepage TK Trailer

PS: Take a look at the light ramp in the back of the TK Trailers, just quick release for the electric and 2 small ramps to remove very easily.
Just love that part on them.

Mark, sounds like an excellent choice, whilst your discussing it with them, ask them how they make a waterproof bearing, would love to know, oh and ask what the torque is to remove the one shot bearing nut.
