Couldnt you swap the axle out for a higher capacity one & maybe larger tyres then sell the old units on ebay, trailer stuff sells realy well on ebay & you might end up with your weight upgrade costing you only a few quid

I did consider that when it was first mentioned (by you I think, BK), but I've decided to jump up quite a bit from the rated 1100kg (weighed in at 1220kg, ahem) to 1800kg in order to accommodate any combination of dive gear, camping gear and kit for 2 adults, 2 boys and 4 dogs!

By the time I uprated it as a package to 1800kg I was looking at spending around the same as I can pay for a brand new trailer (with part-ex).
