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 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, they use a pretty impressive gas strut set up

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.

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
