Interesting trailers. They look nice, and reasonably light weight for heavy duty cargo trailers.
I do find it curious using bolt together aluminum extrusions vs a welded frame. Of course, it makes shipping easier.
75 kilos for the plastic wheels would seem a bit limiting, but 150 kilos for the spoke wheels would be more reasonable, and would make for a pretty heavy load.
Personally on my trailer, I chose to build a frame component on both sides of the wheels which makes extremely strong and stable wheels, as well as giving some wheel protection
The ball hitch looks nice, but is is specific to the BusyBikes, and not generally adaptable to a variety of bikes? I do like some kind of rigid hitch linkage, but there are a few different ways to achieve it.
