Anyone heard of this company: http://www.cantrailers.com/ribtrailers.htm

You have a PM.

I can't say it in public.

Nos's PM will be good/bad however you look at it, as he told me the stoy once.

Looking at their site, the trailers look very slightly built with very small box sections and no regard to the forces involved or good engineering practice.(In my Opinion of course).

It also looks like somebody stole most of the rollers!!

I'd say don't do it, pick up a used rollercoaster and throw some new axles under it.

Thanks Nasher, I'll try Admiral and a few others first. I know I'm doing it on the cheap and that you gets what you pays for normally, But I know there must be a good quality roller trailer out there that'll support a 1000 kg RIB for under 1500.

Was following an Auction the other day (well till my PC went wonky) for an SBS trailer (new) the rig didn't reach its reserve, but not by much I think 1070 was max bid.
