About Spitfire Superior Aluminium Construction
All Spitfire I-beams, draw bars and cross bars are anodised aluminium 6061 and hardened to T6. We believe the Spitfire trailers are the only trailers in the world who offer both T6 and anodised as standard! T4 and mill finish is the norm.
The anodised coating is hard, durable, will never peel.
The purpose of anodising is to form a layer of aluminium oxide that will protect the aluminium beneath it. The aluminium oxide layer has much higher corrosion and abrasion resistance than aluminium and it also provides a longer lasting and consistent shine so it will look as good in the future as it does today.
All braked Spitfire chassis use the same alloy profiles (I-beams and cross bars) that use to build the 3.5ton trailers!
Torsion Rubber Suspension is standard on our Spitfire trailers, or I can use leaf spring if you prefer.
Torsion provides a far superior towing experience. Boat builders know that trailering a boat may be the most abuse a hull receives. Torsion Axels are superior in every way and reduce that wear and tear.
Every day towing creates oscillation that is transferred to the boats skids or rollers, causing potential hull fatigue, deformation and damage. However the torsion axel system allows each wheel to operate independently and provides superior shock absorption and a smoother a ride V’s springs.
a. improved handling, especially better cornering ability and rough road stability.
b. Sway allowed by a typical leaf spring hanger set up is virtually eliminated
c. Metal to metal contact eliminated, thus noise eliminated
d. The axel also acts as additional structural bracing

316 nut, bolt and U bolt construction.
316 light brackets with protective light covers, swinging number plate.
316 chassis joining plate (top and bottom) (where Ibeams attach to the draw bar)
Deemaxx calipers and vented rotors are now standard in 2021. Can also upgrade to Deemaxx stainless rotor and calipers
Hydraulic hose lines are encased in flexible teflon, stainless steel braided certified lines.
We use Duralac to sperate the different metals in the large structural surfaces (between axles, SS tail light brackets, SS chassis joining plate and coupling).
