There's no problem with a trailer plated to 1300kg with a single axle
seems like the only issue is a bit of confusion over the name
It seems obvious if you want the twin axle version that you'd ask if it was the twin before traveling
I didn't want a twin axle so I phoned and asked if the trailers were plated and if the weight his advert quoted was right. I was assured that they were plated and rated to 2000KG and had been getting used to transport 6.7mtr boats for the RLNI. (They possibly had been, that would explain why the draw bar was bent on one of them)
I'd seen single axle Indespension Coaster 6 trailers quoted at both 1300kg and 1500kg and I could have lived with a 1500kg option.
There is a point where you have to take the vendor "at his word" and his assurances were the reason I made the trip.
