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.
The advantages of a GLIDE-ON SPITFIRE Trailer include;
Spitfire's High Density, Super Slippery, Polyethylene - HDPE UV Polymer glides has many advantages over other bunk material.
* UV Stabalised
* Does not hold water like carpet bunks
* Does not hold sand like carpet bunks.
* Does not cause osmosis like carpet does
* Super, super slippery
* Flexes to the shape of the hull
* Lower maintenance
* No metal b
Bunks can be changed to Spitfire side rollers.
However on a correctly set up trailer, each roller is only carrying an average of 36 - 54 kg.
Also keep in mind that the footprint of 36 - 54 kg weight on a roller is supported on only a few square centimetres compared to a set of bunks which can offer 1,000 sq cm of support per bunk.
So consideration needs too be made as to weight, road conditions i
If you should operate in an area of high tide run... or high wind and need assistance to centre your boat when driving on, Spitfire offer cost effective, 'EASY LOADER V-GUIDES'' which can be attached to the last or even several cross members to guide you straight every time.
Again, nothing to scratch your hull.
Any configuration. is available to suit your vessel and your local conditions
