Replying to:rl28 weights and c of g for trailering, trailer designs.
I am looking at getting a trailer made for an rl28. Has anyone got some actual weights of boats with all fittings and rigging, o/b motor, tanks full etc. Has anyone some actual weighbridge weights for an rl28 fitted out ready to tow on a trailer including the trailer (please specify if these are axle weights or gross weights). I am led to believe that it may be just under the 2000 kg once the towbar weight is subtracted from the gross, but prior to organising a trailer I want to be sure of its axle weight for the purpose of selecting the type of braking system to satisfy the current regulations. I realise the c of g will vary dependant on the weight of motor, tanks and what is in them but if anyone has any relevant information concerning the position of the c of g such that the correct axle positions can be determined for a reasonable towbar weight. I would appreciate such information. I would also appreciate any drawings/designs for trailers to suit the rl28. Thanks in anticipation for any assistance. Mike.
