I'm not sure what price-bracket you're looking for, but I've visited their factory here in the Cape and would strongly recommend you have a look at the metalian mini. http://metalian.co.za/product/metalian- ... 4-trailer/
Thanks to this post by Stefan, after much shopping around I ended up buying a Metalian Mini. I would never have known about the product if it had not been pointed out to me here. After seeing one "in the flesh" it took me about three seconds to conclude that it was far better than any other trailer I had seen before – and I have seen some really good workmanship along the way, in which context I can strongly recommend Wildebeest trailers made in Pretoria if for any reason that type of trailer is preferred. I managed to purchase a "once used, slightly stone chipped" trailer from the manufacturer (Heinz Modricky), at far below the normal retail price. That suits me perfectly as it is going to see some hard use in my hands anyway.

Jules, it is going to be a while before I am able to post pics. They first need to sort out the registration papers and I am having some fit out done to the trailer which is going to take some time. So look to see something probably sometime during November.
