What do you think of these trailers?

Looking for an opinion on these - what do you guys with engineering backgrounds think?

Crap! I've only seen a couple of them, but pass the guys house quite often and seems to have alot in stock.

Saw a guy trying to load his rib on one in Southampton, and he wasn't very impressed with it!

You echo my opinions.

Thought that'd be the consensus somehow.

What's the legal requirement for weight plates/type approval/ce marking etc for braked or unbraked trailers? I don't see anything about it on his website.

I don't actually need a new trailer-this guy has offered me a 'business opportunity' delivering some of them with my tow car-but I'm wondering if they are actually legal to tow o the road without CE marks etc...?
