What brand is this RIB?

I've just won this on ebay. Despite the seller claiming otherwise, I'm inclined to think its a Tornado. What do we think?

Not sure but should be interesting towing that on the motorway. Those wheels are tiny and the trailers not holding much up

Good price though.

Ha, indeed, love the "road legal" trailer. It'll be going on a proper trailer for the trip back.

Starovich, thanks, thought it was
