Ditto , adjusting it to fit took as long as assembly really .
I have also replaced both the grease nipples in the hubs. One broke off in the end of my grease gun and the other just wouldn't let any grease through . I think that Nightfrieght had given it a rough ride and nipples had got bumped .

Taken the plunge

Had a very helpful friend pick up a EXT500 trailer from Extreme for me today. Its flat packed, planning on putting it together on Saturday morning. It seemed great value compared to the other options on the market.

Will post pictures when built.

You do have to watch for rough handling, those nipple are highly delicate yet crucial. And easy flow once clamped is essential, I find an occasional tweak and a wipe helps a lot.
