Congratulations on your product...(Rob Tanfield, Maryborough )

After purchasing a new 6 mtr boat in 2011 i got talked into purchasing another so called reputable brand of boat trailer from a QLD manufacture. After 12 mths it was showing signs of rust and deterioration like it was many years old and believe me i wash the boat and trailer down very well indeed after my return from a day spent on the water.

I have since off loaded that piece of “so called” best brand available and purchased one of your Swiftco brand and what a positive contrast in comparison, from the way its built to the quality of fittings used , i can just see this trailer is going to last me a lifetime !

Congratulations on your product and i will have no hesitation recommending you're brand to my friends and colleagues throughout the future

Extremely happy with the trailer...(Stephen Guthrie, Queensland)

Just letting you know that we are extremely happy with the trailer, now that it is here and adjusted to suit our boat. Thanks again for your service.

Trailer looks good (Sam Binnie, Queensland)

Trailer looks good and Chris was super helpful at the factory when I picked it up.

I would like to commend you on the way the transaction was handled. (Dave Ayres, Queensland)

Marcus trailer turned up today and I would like to commend you on the way the transaction was handled,very efficient and reliable. For one who hasn't yet fully embraced the cyber-space way of dealing,your company has taken me forward.

I have received the trailer. It is great. (Ashley Shuttlewood, Queensland)

I have received the trailer. It is great. I was totally amazed when I pulled up at the freight depot to pick it up... it is far better then the photos on your web page show!!! I can not believe how solid it is!!!! it will be a great reliable trailer and I will have no concerns traveling to the cape or to the gulf (a 5000-6000km round trip) with it. I have recommended you to a few people I know already who are considering a new trailer, as you cant beat the quality and the price. Over all but i am extremely happy with the trailer and have no concerns recommending you to others.

Am very happy with it. (Peter Treloar, Queensland)

I have taken delivery of it already and am very happy with it. my marine mechanic is too. cheers peter..

Replace winch

Coincidently, I lost a couple of teeth on the small cog on the winch on my Swiftco trailer. Phoned Swiftco On the Gold Coast where I bought the trailer, they told me to go see barracuda trailers in Garbutt. My winch was been replaced, no questions, I am very pleased, I was ready to argue my case: new trailer etc etc, no need, I was handed a complete new winch, and talked fishing for 20 mins.

Don't know the guy from Adam, but my experience has been excellent and so I recommend them.

We are very happy with our Swiftco trailers

Dear mr Youd

Thank you for going the ' extra mile' to ensure that we received the trailer
For our holiday. We are very happy with our Swiftco trailers ( boat and box ) and
Look forward to recommending to friends and neighbours and our next trailer purchase

Francois Naude

thank you for your time and patients

Hi Marcus,

We have eventually succeeded with our boat on your trailer.  We still have a few adjustments to make but looking good. Just like to thank you for your time and patients. 


Steve and Gayle Adams

Brodie and Kev were the best.

Absolute fantastic experience, Brodie and Kev were the best. Thank you both again, Nick & Julie

BEST people to deal with

Hi,  We would like to leave some feedback regarding our experience purchasing and picking up our Quest camper trailer at the Mackay show  last weekend.
Brodie and Kev were the BEST people to deal with ,especially going way beyond what they had to do regarding our oddball trailer plug and sorting it out with a lot of running around with not much time left in the day, Kev fitted it in a jiffy and was a great bloke to chat with ( but don't tell him that, evidently he has trouble fitting his head in a car) and all with a smile.
I will have no hesitation in recommending Platinum Camper Trailers to my friends & family because of these two top blokes,
Thanks again,
                     Nick & Julie Philip

Very happy with the quality of the boat trailer

I'd like to thank the two guys last fortnight who put the trailer together for me in such short notice. They were very professional in questions​ I had asked about how to fit boat on to the trailer & towing speed with an empty trailer.

Another big thumbs up for the salesman who got back to me quickly about the bearings.

Very happy with the quality of the boat trailer & top service of the swiftco team, I'll pass on any recommendations to other's

Cheers Dave Hickey

How much weight should be on my towball/drawbar?

Typically on a boat/trailer the overall weight of the boat/motor trailer should not exceed between 5-7% of the total weight on the towball. Eg Boat/Motor/Trailer weights 800kg the towball weight should not exceed 56kg as a general rule.

The correct weight should be between 5% to 10% of the overall GVM capacity. Example - Trailer with 1999kg GVM. Towball weight 99kg to 199kg. Having the wrong towball weight will effect the performance when being towed at > 60 kph

I am looking at buying a boat and am unsure whether it requires brakes or not? Can you help?

Laws in Australia require boat/motor and trailer packages that weigh over 750kg including all three weights require brakes. If the boat/motor and trailer weighs over 2000kg you will need a breakaway system. See our Hydrastar Braking system page on our website for more information.

l want to convert my trailer from skids to rollers can l do this?

Yes we have rollers in a double roller set or quad roller set that clamp to most frames being 50mm or 75mm. See our parts section on our "Trailer Repair Centre" Website to view these rollers. Codes 3100 and 3110.

How often should I service my trailer?
We recommend your trailer to have a minor service within the first 6 months after purchase followed by a major brake & bearing service every 12 months. This will keep you safe on the road and increase the life of the trailer. Rollers and components reset and checked every 24 months.
Is everything on the trailer Galvanized?

YES. Everything that can be Galvanised is including axles, hubs, springs, u-bolts, nuts and washers are all galvanized.

What stud pattern are Swiftco Boat Trailers Australia wheels?

trailers have Ford type stud pattern

Can I convert my single axle trailer to tandem axle?
What is the white powdery substance on my trailer?

White Rust. The condition of the galvanised finish is governed by the environment in which the trailer is maintained and stored. Deterioration of the galvanizing (and the formation of 'white rust') is accelerated in areas of high humidity, poor ventilated storage, high salinity or poor water levels. See the following article for a detailed explanation.

Trailer Maintenance.

It is recommended that your trailer be serviced at least once a year, with brakes and bearings requiring six monthly service attention. Checks should be done on all your running gear including bearings, hubs, brakes, wheels and tyres. Wash your trailer down after each use and check that all bolts and nuts are tight. Regular maintenance will lengthen the life of the trailer and keep the trailer in safe operation.

Trailer VIN Numbers.

Every trailer has a compliance plate fitted Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) included in the price.

Does the Boat Trailer come with Registration?

No. The boat trailer needs to be registered in your name by you. We will supply you the receipt that has all the information on it to register the boat trailer including the VIN Number. Take the receipt along with the trailer to the transport department to register the boat Trailer.
