All Mackay trailers are fitted with Quality Bearings
Bearing size depends on the axle width not the wheel size or stud pattern type - Mackay uses four axle sizes 39mm round, 40mm, 45mm and 50mm. Holden Bearings are fitted to both 39mm round axles and 40mm square axles. Ford Bearings are fitted to 45mm square axles and Land Cruiser bearings are fitted to 50mm Square Axles. For details on bearing numbers see the below chart.

Mackay 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.

YES. Tandems can be converted from 5000 models upwards. Price is dependent on trailer model and condition on re-usable parts.
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.
YES. Mackay’s Y-Series trailer range is designed for Yachts and trailer sailors.
Every Mackay trailer has a compliance plate fitted. The plate is located where the A-frame meets the drawbar on the driver’s side. GVM stands for Gross Vehicle Mass. This is the combined towing capacity of Boat, Motor and Trailer.
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
