I realize that this may have been asked but have not been able to find it. I have a 1992 Ciera Sunbridge 2855 that needs a trailer. I think I have located one that will work but am not sure. The trailer measures 27ft total length, 6' 6" between tires and 8' 2" total width. It has electric brakes and use rollers for supports.

Would this be adequate to tow my Ciera? Any advise of help would be greatly appreciated.

Robert

27ft totally length seems a bit short...
How many axle? Axle rating or wheel lug count?
Tire ratings?

Trailers are usually longer than the boat. My 28 footer has a 35 foot long trailer. You don't want your anchor going they your back window of your SUV.

Restored this 2855 as well as my 3058... there were pretty good threads going with lots of pics until Photobucket decided to rob me for it :)

Trailer capacity likely not enough. your boat most likely weighs more than you think.

It definately weighs more than the stated internet specs. You will need a tráiler thats is at mínimum the weight of the boat and trailer combined. Better yet loaded to about 80% capacity with all your junk and fluids.. For example stated weight of my boat is 10,000 ( a 32 ft) but it actually weighs 17000# loaded with all it's fluids and stuff.

Electric brakes? Do you mean electric over hydraulic or straight electric? You don't want straight electric for a boat trailer.

Do you know what the trailer capacity is? If I went by specs you would need a 10k # trailer if you didn't have anything loaded in it. You will need a 12k# capacity trailer for best results.

Like is said my specs are 10k it it actually weighs 12-13 k. Empty and dry. I suspect yours weighs more than stated too.

Looks like this trailer is just a tad too small to work on my 2855. I will continue with my search.

Since I am a new owner and member here I have learned a lot. The trailer issue is confusing at best. The boat is a 2855 however that doesnt mean it is 28ft. lol
My boat is sitting in drydock and if I can figure out exactly how to measure it and where to measure it, then the trailer issue might get easier.
I was there last night and measured from the back of the boat to the bow loop it is about 22ft. And yet a 2855 is supposed to be at least 28ft. LOA of 31ft. just plain confusing...

Any advice on trailer length from other owners of the 2855 would be very much appreciated.

Thanks to all for the much needed advise.

If you look at how the factory measures a boat...... what they don't tell you the length of the boat is measured on the curve. In other words from the tip of the structure to the tail. Measured down the side not measured from the center line.

For example a older boat with a removable swim platform and bow pulpit is measured only at hull ends. If the swim platforms is intregal then that is included in the length over all not just the hulk. A 2855 is most likely a 26 foot size boat. My 26 foot size boat weighed 9000# loaded plus a 2000# trailer. My trailer was a 12k# trailer.

I have also a avanti 3450. ( among my 2 othed 32.fts)The hull is more or less 34 feet long but later years they made the same hull and interior same exterior style boat with a integrated swim platform and called. it a 3785. Its still a 34 foot size boat.
