Trailers on disk brakes

Can anyone tell me if a trailer will attach properly if i have disk brakes on the rear wheel? Also where is the best place to buy trailers on the net (that ship to UK)? Ive been looking around but havent found much, only the BOB trailers but there way out of my budget! Any advice appreciated!

I know at least the BOB will mount on its own provided skewer, regardless.

I can say from experience that a BOB will mount on a bike with disc brakes. Since a BOBs mount points are on the rear axle outboard of the rear triangle, the type of brakes should make no difference at all.
