Important Dimensions


Please note that although our trailers are designed with the intention of been universal, there are many different trolley designs for different types of boats. We suggest that you check to make sure your trolley fits on the road base before purchasing. Normally the important parts are the length of the axle and the position of the trolley wheels. If you have any questions please email or call us. Alternatively why not buy one of our trolleys for a guaranteed great fit.



Distance between the mud guards 1530mm If the outside of your trolley wheels are further apart, your trolley will still fit but you will need to remove the trolley wheels.
Width of the trailer frame 1245mm If the inside of your trolley wheels are closer, then you will need to remove the trolley wheels when you put the boat on the trailer.
Width of the roller 1190mm The distance from the outside of your side arms where they join the axle of your trolley need to be less, otherwise the trolley won't fit.

  1. Philip Bamfield asks 19 Feb 2020

    Does this trailer include the mast support? Is it adjustable? Can I fit My existing launching trolley on this trailer?

    I’m ready to place an order once I get a response.

    1. Jake Gebhard answers 21 Feb 2020

      Hi and thanks for your enquiry, the trailer does not come with a mast support this is an additional item. They come in 3 sizes 1.1m 1.45m and 1.8m. if you need help figuring out what size you need just get in touch.

      The Trailer is designed to take most A frame trollies, what boat and trolley are you looking to tow?

      Many thanks
      Jake

    How much would it cost to deliver to France?

  3. Philip Bamfield asks 19 Jan 2020

    I need a road trailer for a 14’ bosun dinghy. I already have a launching trolley. What do you recommend please

    1. David Shilling answers 20 Jan 2020

      Hi Philip
      You could go with our Vario 1 which should take your trolley, see dimensions in the description but the Bosun will be about the largest boat it will take. Or our Vario 2 which will take the Bosun and boats up to 16 1/2 feet long
      Regards

  4. Paul asks 11 Aug 2019

    Would a laser performance trolley lock in under the two metal fingers that sit just above the full width rear loading roller ?
    What distance are the fingers above the roller / rear trailer cross bar?

    1. David Shilling answers 11 Nov 2019

      Hi Paul,
      It would be best to either rotate the tabs so they are out the way or remove them
      I have seen a few Laser Performance trolleys and I don't think any of them will lock in at the rear, some pull up to the roller no problem and some (older trolleys) require the wheels to be removed to go forward enough. The boat is then strapped to the roadbase so it makes little difference if the trolley is locked or not


      We are looking into the option of a shaped tab which will lock the rear in but have no stock as yet
      Regards
      David

  5. Olof asks 11 Jan 2019

    Hi, is this the trailer (Vario 1) you recommend for the OK-dinghy?

    Regards
    Olof

    1. David Shilling answers 4 Nov 2019

      Hi Olof
      Yes the Vario 1 road base is what we'd recommend for the Ok dinghy.
      You can double check it's compatible with your trolley with the measurements in the description of the product
      Regards

      Hi Michael
      The Vario 1 will fit all our trolleys suitable for up to 14 foot boats so yes the Topper and Laser trolley will fit on and make a combi trailer

  7. David McClay asks 1 Jan 1970

    Will the extension arms for the lighting board extend beyond the transom of a laser dinghy once it is on the road base?

    1. David Shilling answers 25 Sep 2019

      Hi David
      Once the Laser is loaded the lighting board sits about 3 feet forward of the transom which is in accordance of the EU towing laws.
      Regards
      David

  8. David Richards asks 1 Jan 1970

    The picture shows a lighting board on an adjustable frame. Am I correct in thinking this is included and is the cable also included?

    1. David Shilling answers 27 Mar 2019

      Hi David
      Yes the lighting board is included and it has a 6 meter cable
      Regards

  9. Dennis allen asks 1 Jan 1970

    Hi would this road base take an enterprise with an outboard fitted. What sort of electric connection is it 7 ir 13 pin

    1. David Shilling answers 17 Jun 2019

      Hi Dennis
      The Vario 1 road base is designed to take our trolleys that fit boats up to 14' 6", it will also carry many other manufacturers trolleys however the connectivity may not be as good and extra tie downs may be required.
      The issue with an outboard fitted is the balance point is bought aft and therefore requiring a longer trailer/trolley, the heavier the outboard the further back the balance point.
      So the first thing I'd advise is to find the balance point of the boat and we can then look at a trolley and road base or road trailer
      Regards
      David

    2. David Shilling answers 17 Jun 2019

      It's a 7 pin plug


      Regards
      David
