Many years ago my brother built an excellent launching trolley, for
his Minisail, from 2 inch drain pipe. It was assembled with the
appropriate fittings then the whole thing was locked together, and
stiffened, by a rope that ran right through the whole thing.
Dismantled, all the bits were held together by the loose rope, much
like some modern tent poles.

The 3-way adjustable arm is shown at its longest length. I agree the camera lens distortion gives a bad impression.
Designed for normal shipping, it breaks down into parts no longer than 1.2m:
Assuming the longest section is 1.2m it looks like the axle is also 1.2m long. I just measured my Mirror dinghy road trailer and 1.2m should fit inside the mudguards.......but it would need extra support to stop the trolley twisting.
