    Looking to make my Load Rite trailer work for a Tripp 22 and cant seem to find a source for taller pivot brackets . I've contacted Load Rite and that was a waste of time as was contacting some dealers as well . Thanks Dennis

    Loadrite does have the galvanized uprights that you are looking for. I bought a set directly from them 10 years ago when I set- up my loadrite trailer for my Duffy. Go on there website and look up parts. I think they called them sailboat uprights?

    Another option, if you can't find someone who sells what you need, would be to have a welding/machine shop build you the brackets. That's likely a more expensive option, but then you could get exactly what you need.

    I was looking at a different bracket as my sons brother in law has these in a taller version but the sailboat brackets will work as well . I failed to mention that I was using a roller trailer but you would think load rite would point me in the right direction with sailboat brackets .
