It will need an IVA test, used to be done at a dvsa site, I know the local one has shut for testing goods vehicles, but kept a building for IVA tests.

How big a trailer?
I`ve got a feeling less than 3500kg is a bit easier than over.

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
if it's less than 3500kg ....... don't build a NEW one ....... refurb an old one ;););) nudge nudge .... complete new build is a bit of a ball ache now

Are we talking road going goods trailer or ag or specialist vehicle trailer?

Surely it would have to be something properly specialist to warrant building from scratch?

wheels under or either side Aiden? Meredith and Eyre are a good supplier for hitches/running gear ... Peak if you want to go springs ... rocking beam's a must if going that route (axle assemblies - double eye springs) DET3900 or DET4500 ;) Peak Trailers Ltd (cylex-uk.co.uk)
