Most boat trailers sold in Australia today are a hangover design from the 1970s.
The advantages of a Spitfire GLIDE-ON trailer are:
* No keel roller brackets to damage your hull.
* Easier to drive on.
* Lower centre of gravity when under tow.
* Lower maintenance.
* Lower cost.
* A Lighter Trailer.
Check out this video.... See how easily the keel of this heavy Haines Hunter slides off the HDUVPE cross members with a gentle tug on the rope.. With a Spitfire trailer you don't need to add the expense of centre keel rollers or roller ladders.
Notice also the side rollers or bunks have very little weight on them and loose contact with the boat as it begins to slide down into the water.
Spitfire Trailers are designed based on 50 years of real practical boating... not on 50 years of copying other makers.
Today most boast ramps allow boat owners to drive on to their trailer.
The lack of keel rollers, or roller ladders means you have nothing to damage your hull.
When the power is completely cut off, the boat gently slips away on its own.
Notice that after driving on, by maintaining a little power, this holds the boat on the trailer, so in one man situation, you can connect the winch and tie off the front.
Life is complicated enough....Don't make your boating complicated.
