G'day Andy,

I have a Heaslip trailer with a boat rack pivoted at a central point at the front. Drop legs and wheels down at the back and pivot it out of the way. 2 minutes. Pretty good. I think you could look at the principle of it on a Heaslip brochure, perhapos look at heaslipcampers.com not sure if there's an au on the end.

otherwise Kimberley Campers and Trak Shacks have swingover boat racks with gas struts to help.

Andy, I have just bought and 7*4 box trailer and made up fixed racks myself but in my searches I came across Obriens in Dandenong http://www.obrienstrailers.com.au/, they use a pretty impressive gas strut set up

Andy,
Kimberly Kampers and CampAmatic campers do a good swing over racks. The big thing to remember is to have some form of trailer to get the tinnie to the water. I have seen plenty blokes who don't get to use their tinnies because mum does not want to break camp so you can go fishing.

regards john

Giday Andy,
I have just been through that exercise, the gas assisted racks are to dear [exess 1000$] & to ungainly. I' designed' a system that slides out to the side on teflon runners & either , stays suported [ with a pole] or drops down to the ground against the trailer, the important thing is you DONT have to untie the tinnie.Cost was $550.& takes 1 min.
The camper & rack was made for me with what I wanted by the same mob that builds for a well known off road trailer & saves about $2--3000g
I,m off next wkto The top end,& The kimberly,[Just to see if it all works of course]If you need any more info givus a oi.

See ya
