On a routine pink slip inspection we discovered a customer’s trailer lights shorting out – you can see the red hot wires and smoke.
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.
Christian Bold discusses the AL-KO iQ7 brake control unit. For safer towing, this is an after market retrofit.
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.

With news that local councils in NSW will be enforcing laws regarding long term parking of trailers, particularly boat trailers, on local roads, Jaclyn wanted to share 3 ways to avoid being fined.
- Move your trailer regularly and park in different spots along your street.
- Fit a swing away drawbar to your boat trailer neck so that it shortens the length of your trailer to fit in your garage or storage space. (see more about the swing away draw bars here)
- Pay to store your trailer in an off road storage facility.
