Hi. I am wondering about the reason for a trailer's load limit - what part of the trailer is the weak link? There are trailers available like this, which says 40kg:
And then others like this, which claim a 100kg capacity:
Now, I wonder what the real difference is. The first trailer has no solid bed to it, so perhaps that's why? It's referring to the strength of the material, perhaps?
I mean, even the Carry Freedom reckons it can handle 90kg, and there's not a lot to it. I can't help thinking that any welded metal trailer will be able to take 90-100kg or more.
Basically, is it worth shelling out more for a trailer that's supposedly stronger, or could the addition of a wooden base, say, make any trailer as strong as another?
While I'm here, does anyone know anything about that last link? They're quite cheap but there's no picture of the hitch!!! Argh!
I might risk it anyway. The trouble is, they're pretty heavy, these stronger trailers. The carry freedom manages to only weigh 7kg, but some others I've seen weigh a lot more than twice that!
Thanks for any info/help
