Description

Load Rite’s 14F1000WT:
Our best seller for Sunfish, LoadRiteSunfishTrailerMelges 14, Laser and rack trailer

Load Rite continues to make a better sailboat trailer!

Just Google “torsion bar” versus “leaf spring” to see why others prefer them.

Why the switch from leaf springs?

Our Load Rite rep says the torsion bar axles on their big trailers offers such better wear and handling that they decided to offer it on their smaller 14F1000WT trailers as well.

How they are made

The image the right shows the hard rubber chords that fit around the axle shaft. The axle and rubber chords are dipped into liquid nitrogen, shrinking them enough to be inserted into the square cross axle. Once it is returned to temperatures you would find on Earth, it has created a shock absorbing unit that will last as long as leaf springs.

Quiet and handling

The two main reasons to be happy you have a torsion bar trailer. We have tried them out and agree, they don’t rattle when the trailer is empty at road speed, and they don’t have the bounce and bang we all have experienced while hauling with leaf springs.

Made in Pennsylvania, USA

For over 35 years, the name Load Rite has been synonymous with craftsmanship, style and value. Since 1980, Load Rite has designed and built trailers with great care to make them the finest trailers on the market.
