    Hi all, Just waiting on a price from a guy for Seatrail trailers, but I am leaning towards the Spitfire aluminum trailer full ally 1460 kgs ATM, hydrualic brakes, torsion axle, blue slip + other bits and pieces $4450 Really hope I don't get burnt and its a decent build and quality http://spitfiretrailers.com.au/product/spitfire-trailers-aluminium-6.0M-1460kg-multi-roller-boat-trailer

    Plenty of fishing room in that Antony. Looks a good boat

    Yeah mate very lucky you got it for that price... wonder why a guy buys a brand new trailer and lets it sit in the yard for a year or 2 and never use it..?? Lucky for you though I guess. As for the galvanising if the salesman I spoke with is telling the truth he said that it isn't an issue now but was in the early years, so hopefully that problem has been rectified.

    Yeah my current trailer is single axle, and price quoted was for a single as well. Hows the quality on the Gal one you got mate? How's it tow and how's the gal, I've heard the galvanising is a problem with the Chinese trailers

    Thanks mate. Hopefully someone who owns one or knows a bit of info on them would be handy before I take the plunge

    Anyone got any reviews on Spitfire trailers? Got a price on a brand new full aluminum one with torsion springs, hydraulic brakes, LED lights, walk platform etc with boat fitted for $4550. I just don't know yet how long they have been around and how decent the trailers are. Being aluminium would take away the worry of cr@ppy galvanising which could be a possibility with the seatrail ones.

    Mate would if I could but my trailer is out of rego in 2 weeks time and I don't think it will pass for a pink slip to be honest, otherwise I would just continue to flog it till it chucked it in.

    You could probably private message me that info mate, I think that is allowed, is it Moderators?

    Yeah I went and saw them mate, but they are bloody pricey. I'll check that out lyons90, thanks mate. Mate don't have that far to go, original plan was to repair mine but I believe the main outside support of the frame is rusting from the inside out. I put some pics up on a thread I started in the workshop category but member Franks pointed out that he thought it was rusting from the inside, and the more I looked the more I believe he is right, so think I'm up for a new trailer, I would go second hand but like you said, they go quick, and some of the ones I've seen advertised they look worse than mine!

    Hi, Was going to refurb my trailer but believe its rusting from the inside out on the main outside support so will more than likely be looking at buying a new one. Anyone own or have anything nice to say about the setrail trailers? I went and looked at one today and it looked pretty solid. The guy there admitted that back in the early days of importing them they had issues with the galvinising as they were not cleaning the steel correctly but he said that has all been sorted now and they have had no problems other than the winch and the jockey wheel which he admitted were pretty crap and probably the only real issue they have with the new trailers. Any advice or stories by someone who actually owns one would be great. Thanks Geoff

    I thought about c-section but sort of cant get my head around how I could replicate what I have seeing it is boxed...

    Thanks Frank, I'll start to shop around for the steel and have a heap of questions no doubt too

    Thanks for the replies men. I have a mig welder, and I have access to metal saws at work also... I'd like to have a crack at building the new undercarriage because like you said Frank they are so bloody expensive for what they are.

    I know you know your stuff Frank and I respect what you say, so would you be suggesting a new trailer then mate?
