Although trailers these days have type approval from new, there are certain exemption for 'single use design' trailers ......... i.e. a boat trailer is for carrying boats and not a lot else, they are not a GP trailer.
On older trailers, homebuilt trailers, and rebuilt trailers, no plate is needed............ with an unbraked hitch the Plod / VOSA will take 750kg as the gross weight unless otherwise marked ...........
With a braked trailer, that is not weight plated, they will use the hitch plate info as the definitive gross trailer weight.
