The Variant 1007 Kayak/Canoe Trailer is perfect for schools, universities, activity guides and organisations that need to transport kayaks, canoes, surf skis and rowing boats to and from activity locations. The 1007 allows you to load up to 8 Canoes which makes it great for larger groups with more equipment.

The 1007 Kayak/Canoe trailer can be towed by any vehicle with a 1000kg braked towing capacity.

This model uses the Federally approved KNOTT Mechanical Overrun Braking system which means that you don’t need electric brakes to tow the trailer.

The Variant 1007 Kayak/Canoe Trailer is equipped with a frame that can be moved forwards and backwards to balance the trailer for the different types of watercraft that may be loaded. The trailer is also fitted with an adjustable tailboard which can be moved in or out up to 900mm – this ensures your lights and number plate are still visible when towing longer canoes and kayaks. The tailboard can be retracted to make for a more compact trailer when being stored.

Tyres

All Variant Trailers use new E4 rated Tubeless radials. A radial Tyre features transverse radial plies, that run perpendicular to the direction of travel, this assures less heat buildup and a softer ride.

Variant tyres are rated C for fuel efficiency, driving in wet conditions and ‘ medium ‘ for sound rating.

Rolling Resistance A to G is A measurement of fuel efficiency for the vehicles. The energy lost when the Tyre is rolling on the road surface, the lower the resistance the greater the fuel reduction and CO2 levels. A is the best performing bulls and G being the lowest.

Wet Grip A to G providers a sliding scale with information regarding the Grip ability of a Tyre in wet conditions. Higher performance tyres in this category would have shorter braking distance as opposed to lower performing ratings. A indicates the highest performance and G the lowest.

Noise 67 to 79 Db measures the amount of noise the Tyre gene rates. Usually on the Tyre label itself one black wave indicates the least amount of noise generated from the bulls. Three waves mean the highest amount of noise. This is measured in decibels. The higher the Db the greater the noise level.

Suspension

Our our trailers use either knot suspension system or axle leaf spring systems for greater road stability. These are used in conjunction with either solid steel beam axles or rubber & steel compression axles.

Braking

All Our spread living fallow has an auto reverse mechanism within the drum. With the mechanical overrun system – the hydraulically dampened overrun control device is made up of six main elements that control and operate the braking system.
1. The Housing
2. The Draw Tube
3. The Overrun Lever of Brake Link
4. The Damper
5. The Hand/Parking Brake
6. The Energy Store Unit

The handbrake, in conjunction with the energy store, is used to apply the brakes when the trailer is parked. The actuating force for the wheel brake is generated during the braking of the towing vehicle, as the trailer tends to overrun and pushes the draw tube in. The actuating force for the wheel brake is generated at the overrun device through overrunning action of the trailer (FORWARD BRAKING), reversal of trailer by the towing vehicle (AUTO-reverse), or operation of the hand/parking brake.

Innovative Technology

The oil steaming to the spring in the energy store allows gentle and progressive application of the handbrake once the handbrake has passed “over the centre”. No more sudden surprises or even injuries.

Safety Skid

The safety skid is an integral feature of the cast housing and prevents the overrun lever and handbrake lever from becoming damaged by debris and objects underneath the trailer.

Ease of Use

The Variant/Knott Hitch coupling enables easy manoeuvring of the trailer, by using hitch or handbrake lever.

Night Light

All our trailers come as standard with white reverse light lenses for safe reversing and enhanced viewing through mirrors or reversing cameras. It also illuminates the area in the direction you want people to be aware of your driving.

Night Safety

Our Trailers come with safety white reflectors to the front, amber reflectors to the side and red to the rear as standard. These are for safety at night when parked and unhitched and in order that the trailers are fully visible from all sides to oncoming vehicles.

Coupling

Whether It’s a 2700kg or 3500kg  rated hitch, all our hitch’s and couplings have a lockable position for greater security Whether travelling on a journey or in a parked position. All Variant Trailers have an easy to use independent handbrake system built alongside the extra strong coupling.

Strength

It is vital for you to have absolute confidence in your trailer, particularly when your operating day depends on it too. That’s why we develop the very strongest and sturdiest trailers you will find from Europe. Our tried-and-tested welding technology makes us unique in being able to supply transport solutions that have got what it takes to take on any job.
