Plenty folk have done it. I suppose it all comes down to your own level of expertise. Having a decent work area/space would be high on my list of priorities. You could probably pick up a trailer second-hand for 150-350 so weigh up your options and decide.

Something like this would be more than adequate, with extended bunks, etc. Boat / Dinghy / Rib Trailer | eBay UK

You could probably use a sailing dinghy combi trailer for that. I saw recently someone doing one for inflatables (had a Sib frildly support). Dixon Bate (or whoever owns them this week) did kits for not a lot of money tat you could probably miodify really easily.

I looked at building my own form scratch, but after pricing it up, I reckoned for the fiver or so's difference I went out & bought one.

Local(ish) to you is Autow in Perth, nominally "agricultural" trailers, but they are a dealer for one of the boat trailer makers (I forget which) Also may be worth diving into somewhere Like David Anderson in Tayport or the one whose name I forget on the Dundee side of the river. Both have plenty of parts in stock, so may be able to procure a trailer too.
