Custom Trailer FAQ
I have designs in mind. What information can I prepare before meeting with FELK engineers to help with the process?
This is a question we are asked on a daily basis, as everyone has different ideas and requirements from a prospective trailer.
We encourage our clients to provide any drawings, designs, towing requirements (weight) and example photos of other trailers or features.
Most importantly, please be clear on the desired functionality. Occasionally we receive calls asking for a custom trailer, however, the client is better served by a standard trailer with modifications. In this instance, we’ll recommend a standard trailer to save our clients money if possible.
Under what circumstances would I require a custom boat trailer, instead of one of your standard boat trailers?
There are so many different kinds of boats on the market today. Boats can have different lengths, weights, hull shapes (i.e. flat or barge) or slipway trolleys (for people with waterfront properties).
These variations in design may result in unique boat specifications and/or requirements that our range of standard boat trailers cannot accommodate. In these instances, we build custom trailers that are fit for purpose for the particular boat, resulting in the perfect trailer fit and functionality to protect the boat during transport.
For trailers requiring 240 Volt internal electricity, do you install this (such as powerpoints) or do I organise an electrical contractor to perform this?
FELK does not perform complex 240-volt electrical installations, such as those featured on our advertising trailers.
We engage licensed contractors to perform this on our client’s behalf. FELK engineers have partnered with many certified electricians and solar companies over the years.
We understand how to make allowances for cabling conduit, solar panel installation, electrical maintenance, upgrades and overall accessibility.
We encourage clients to ask us about our preferred electrical contractors. Additionally, if you would like to recommend a certified contractor for a particular job then we are happy to collaborate with them on your behalf.
Why do some boat trailers feature tyres instead of multiroller wheels?
Tyres have more surface area and grip, and can be inflated or deflated, thereby offering a “sponge effect”. Tyres are typically used for extremely heavy boats, such as those exceeding 4.5 tonnes.
As an example, we built trailers with a rating of 9.5 tonne GVM for the Australian Defence Force Army to hold a 6.5 tonne boat, which is extremely heavy. In this instance, regular rollers wouldn’t handle the weight, so we engineered the trailer with tyres.
Normal rollers are adequate for boats under 4.5 tonnes. The Felk family owns a boat which is 3.5 tonnes and regularly uses a trailer with normal rollers. This setup has worked perfectly for years.
