TRAILER FEATURES & INCLUSIONS
Alloy box-section is a lot stronger than C or I-channel, and is still easy to hose out and drain with drain holes at every beam dip & bearer ends.
The cross-beams are all angled to guide and raise the boat as it's driven on. The nylon skids allow the boat to slide up, and slide off.
Steps on the winch post give a 'dry' boarding option - over the bow - for solo fishermen. U-Deck pads ensure good grip at all times.
The guide pole on the winch post also doubles as a grab-rail as you step onto/off the boat, allowing you to keep yourself steady .
The nylon skid lined cross-beams are angled to cradle the hull snugly, providing broad, even distribution of weight on the hull.
All boats & trailers starting at the 475 range have the Boat Catch installed as standard for extra safety and easiness.
Every trailer comes with a mag-wheel spare tyre to match the existing installed tyres & stud patterns and a swing-down jockey wheel.
Alloy mag wheels and chequer plate mud-guards feature on every Waverider trailer, whether single or dual axle.
Stress points are reinforced with thick alloy plate & larger builds have solid round-bar as well, to increase load carrying capacity.
If over 2000kgs total (some half-cabs), the trailer is fitted with electric/hydraulic brakes & break-away system for max safety.
475 TS - SINGLE AXLE, (MECHANICAL OVER-RIDE BRAKES)
550 CC - DUAL AXLE, (MECHANICAL OVER-RIDE BRAKES)
600 HC (OVER 2 TONNE) - DUAL AXLE, (ELECTRIC/HYDRAULIC BRAKES & BRAKE-AWAY SYSTEM)
Note* Electric/hydraulic brakes require a controller fitted in your tow vehicle for the brakes to work.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ELECTRIC/HYDRAULIC BRAKES
These heavy-duty brakes aren't required unless the towed weight is over 2000kgs (2 tonne).
Our boat packages don't include these as standard, but choosing a lot of extras can increase the weight quite quickly on the larger builds. When the weight is getting close to 2000kgs, you can chose to upgrade your braking system to electric/hydraulic (combination).
To upgrade to electric/hydraulic brakes, the tow vehicle must have an electronic controller installed, so when the driver applies/uses the car's brakes, pressure is automatically applied on the trailers wheels as well.
When your trailer is over 2000kgs/2tonne, it also requires the trailer be fitted with a 'break-away' system, which requires a 12V battery, which, in the event of the trailer & car parting company while driving (heaven forbid), the battery ensures the brakes are activated and brings the trailer to a halt, all on its own. Same is required for caravans.
