Any help is greatly appreciated!!
The cvrt place I use will inspect and plate trailers but I don't know what they charge.
I have twin axle trailer like you (over enginered if anything almost a tonne empty) and asked them a few years ago . They said that no matter how sure I was about its roadworthyness they would find something .
I never bothered about it since and have been pulled by the guards a few times with it and they were happy enough.
I'm insured to tow up to 3.5 tonne , I think the trailer or what's in it is not covered but any damage or injury to a third party is and I have never been asked what make trailer I have.
