There's probably already a forum thread on this but I don't see it. How's this trailer for keeping Laser sailors happy?

The 220 is designed for a Sunfish and not suitable for a Laser IMHO.
The current Trailex version for a Laser is the SUT 250-L

Thanks, Wavedancer! I'll take a look at that model, and if anyone here has SUT 250-L Laser experience it would be welcome.

Whoops, never mind, y'all about commenting on the SUT 250 -L . I see it is one I have already looked over and sadly doesn't work for me because of the short tongue length that wants to fight with my spare tire on the Land Cruiser tow vehicle.

That SUT 250 looks good! Personally, I would opt for the 12" wheels and spare wheel.

On interesting detail: here in Europe the lights of the trailer have to mark the end of what you're hauling. Most Lasers have a plank with rear light clusters attached to the rudder gudgeons.

I can take a pic of our trailer's set-up if you want.

I don’t believe Trailer board attached to gudgeons is legal in Europe for new trailers. They have number plate mounted on sliding extension bars as part of trailer which you extend to be behind any load on the trailer

Perhaps not, but that's not known to the various national law-enforcement officers! I've done thousands of miles from Cornwall to the Baltics and from Stavanger to Vilamoura in Portugal last year with this contraption and I've not been pulled over once.

I did say for new trailers. Trailers built before the date that the new rules came in can still be used with a trailer board mounted on boat transom

Yes, you did. I was not clear enough, sorry. My late 2017 trailer has a contraption like that, but I've taken it off to make it easier to load/unload the trailer. AFAIK, there's one Dutch trailer brand 'Kalf' with a hinged system: you can swing the extension + rear light clusters aside, making way for the unloading of the boat. Comes at a price, though... (It's a pricy as it is. Dutch sailors have to pay for their whole season/gear/boat themselves, in contrast to most other European countries where the Olympic Committee or the Yachting Association chips in!)
