Single-Place Trailers

Cobra Trailers

Alfred Spindelberger Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH is located at Edermunde/Grifte, Germany, and began making sailplane trailers in 1980.  Each trailer is specially designed for your specific glider.  Cobra trailers are known worldwide for their high quality, durability, safe glider transport, and extraordinary towing characteristics.

Double Wall GRP Top

The Cobra GRP top trailer with its double wall construction is an excellent insulator preventing damaging condensation in moist climates.  Also available are their aluminum top trailers which are extremely durable in hot dry climates.

Stabilizer Jacks

Stabilizer jacks are an option you should seriously consider.  Not only do they take the weight off the axle but your trailer is more stable in a strong wind or during sailplane assembly.  Stabilizer jacks are available for the front and back of the trailer.

Rigging Aid

We wouldn't still be in business if we didn't have these in our shop.  You don't always have lots of people around to help you rig or de-rig.  Using this well designed rigging aid will make sure everyone's back stays in good shape.

Dual Purpose Tow-Out-Bar

This combination tail boom lift and tow-out bar is used for towing your assembled glider with a vehicle.

Foldable Wing Wheel

This foldable wing wheel is ideal for moving your assembled glider around on the field.  Also used with tow-out gear when towing your assembled glider with a vehicle.
