That was a small 500kgs model though so I'm sure the quality would improve with the price.

Out of the two I'd go for Becktons.
The one (CatJasp) 750 kg roller just bought came with good quality parts, he bought it in componeent form and we bolted it together 10% cheaper and there was nothing on that trailer that was inferior quality. We checked out the galanising and thought it good and the tubing was thicked walled, roller arms were a really good casting and I felt it was good value. The winch and post was very sturdy and way stronger than need be

Like you he is in the Boat Trade, he fits out and retubes ribs for a company in Southampton and been around ribs and trailers for 20 years and wouldn't buy crap. I agree about the sticker

I'd still buy an SBS given a free reign but if budget was an issue then I'd give the Extreme good consideration.

teh trailer gets dipped regularly so maybe an update in 6 months might be appropriate

RIBase
I had an Indespension Roller-coaster 750kg when I had the Zodiac Pro. Great trailer. I added a Indespension triple-hitch lock and LED marker lights on the galvanised wheel arches. The RIBcraft came on a Rapide trailer. Although good, it's not a patch on the Indespension. The boat sits far higher, comes with plastic mudguards as standard and a pressed steel hitch instead of Indespension's cast one.
