Roadworthy Trailer ???
Anyone have contact information for a trailer manufacturer for a Flying Scot trailer that does not ruin tires after a couple thousand miles? We've towed a new aluminum trailer and a new galvanized steel Long trailer - both purchase from Flying Scot Inc. Tires lasted on the aluminum trailer less than one sailing season, and on the Long trailer one and a half seasons. Tire problems are so common with Flying Scots which travel each weekend there is a picture of a ruined trailer tire on the Flying Scot blog. A bad case is the boat from the east coast that ruined three tires on the round trip to the 2009 NAC's. On our new Long trailer clearance between top of tire and fender is 3/4". It was not much more than that on the aluminum trailer. Besides being a costly problem for frequent travelers, this is a safety issue.
