BIG BOATS - NEED SPECIALISED TRAILERS
Legally all trailers with a GVM (including Load) of greater than 4.5 ton need to be engineered for their load capacity and are required to be air braked.
Duralite Trailers in conjunction with registered engineers have developed a number of ADR compliant designs for Trailers from 5.5T – 14T.
As always, we custom build these ‘Heavy Trailers’ to suite the specific needs of our clients. In this range we have manufactured Gooseneck Trailers (also known as 5th wheel Trailers).
Be aware that if you operate a trailer with a loaded weight over its registered GVM you are at risk of voiding the insurance of the tow vehicle, the trailer and the vessel on the trailer.
You also run the risk of being fined for an illegal load and being held liable for any accident that may occur.
Because of this Duralite will not supply a trailer where it will be knowingly used for a GVM greater than its registered capacity.
If you need more information on large capacity trailers feel free to contact us. We are always happy to share our knowledge on compliance issues and trailer design.
Alternatively, you could contact your local transport authority or your insurance company and they will clarify the legal requirements to tow large boats.
But as with all our trailers we have a no compromise approach to quality and finish with these trailers.
