Not like for like, no. You'll find that Indespension's boat trailer axles have mounting arms that hold the axle to the chassis rails, utilising three u-bolts on each side, which are specific to them.

Unless, of course, you just drill the chassis and mount the axle that way. In which case you can fit whatever axle you like. Just note that it'll then be fixed, with no adjustment, and you'll have four M12 holes through your chassis rails.

If you'd like I can see what they'll offer me an axle at trade for?

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.
