Why bother with steel when you can use wood

Discretely took a picture of this while waiting to board the x-channel ferry this evening....

Yes, it really is made entirely out of wood! ( the steel drawbar is bolted to the front....ermmm.... Bit of decking i think?). Perhaps Jeepster has diversified?

Will be giving him a wide berth when we get to the other side....

I'm sure someone from South America (can't remember which country) posted photos of a "proper" all wooden boat trailer a year or so ago. Or it might have been on the Etec forum??
