Hi,
I'm looking to get myself a decent windsurfing trailer that can possibly also be used to ferry around 4 small kids electric motorbikes (40kg) and or 6 bicycles. (and the usual Surfboards, SUP's, kitesurf gear etc)
It would need to be galvanized as it will spend time on the beach at Sandy Pt.
Any recommendations for custom trailer manufacturers in and around Melbourne?
Much appreciated...
Regards,
Chris

I used Victorian Trailers in Thomaston? out near the Hume. 7f x 4 gal with a rack but was $$ but I got just what I wanted

If you are on a budget maybe an import. They do do that and others that are galvanised say $1400 and up.

another guy down in Chelsea he looked good but was import

Thanks. Will check them out.
I was thinking galvanized, 8 x 4, single axle box, around 700mm sides, partially enclosed draw-bar section (to gain length), with a set of bars on top, would love to be able to fit a 10' board inside. I want something that's going to last but hoping to get away with under $3k for something if possible. Guess I may have to spend more.
Any chance you could share a pic of your trailer?

Made this up a couple years ago, 8 x 4. 500 deep sides, longer draw bar. Side steps had the top off my old 6x4 already, trailer came from Dandenong but I can't remember there name and I'm at work so will post it tmro. Where great to deal with nothing was a problem with any changes you need.

They could not galvanise when I looked. My 7 foot does not fit a 400 mast straight. Next time I would go 8 foot. If you galvanise locally they will/must make a heavy duty trailer as when they galvanise it buckles the steel. It will have small imperfections but if you know that beforehand you are ok with it. I did 4 foot wide as easier to store at home. You can get 4foot6 then the same as your car.
Maybe a small tandem gal import. At 8x5 or 9x5 random. Tandems are grea5 as they do the bumps better than single

good luck
