1 Easy Change You Can Make To Your Bow Roller To Keep Your Boat Centered

Customers often ask me for a solution to helping keep the bow of the boat straight and protected on their trailer. A simple solution to this is to change the bow roller on your boat trailer from the standard black bow roller to a Dunbier Poly Bow Roller. These rollers are a ‘like for like’ replacement in both a 75mm and 100mm width for the winch carriers. The have larger wings on the sides creating a nice ‘V’ that helps keep the bow of the boat centered on your boat trailer.

How To Shorten The Length Of Your Trailer

If you need to shorten the length of your boat trailer (or almost any trailer) so that it fits in your garage or storage place, a swing away system may be your solution.

Bold Trailers can retro fit a swing away drawbar to your current trailer. Depending on your trailer set up, the length that can be removed from your trailer for storage will vary.

The swing away draw bar system is manufactured to Australian Standards and is engineered to fit your trailer.

If you would like to discuss fitting a swing away system to your trailer please call Bold Trailers on  8544-8114.

Fulton Jockey Wheel Video

Hi everyone, Christian from Bold Trailers. We have come out to the beautiful Bellevue Hill today to fit a Fulton Jockey Wheel to a boat trailer.

The reason we’ve fitted a Fulton Jockey Wheel to this boat trailer, if you have a look at the length of the trailer.  It is quite long and it fits a very heavy boat so it needs a heavy duty jockey wheel to suit the trailer.

The reason we recommend the Fulton Jockey Wheel is because it is aluminium based, all the gears are sealed inside.  It is a dual wheel operation.  All you do is wind it down, it takes the weight of the boat trailer beautifully.  Same with winding up, just with ease. Straight back up and easy to store when you are towing the vehicle, just lock the handle in so it does not move.  Pull the pin out and it folds up.

Beautiful, easy to use and it is going to last a long time.

So if you do need a Fulton Jockey Wheel, come and see us at Bold Trailers.  We would be more than happy to help you out.
