Maybe some of our European friends will chime in but I imagine these are more popular in Europe where as I mentioned every pound counts and smaller less powerfull tow vehicles and much shorter distances are involved. Remember, their countries are the size of our states.

I know this is an old thread I am just adding some info for other new members who will read the post.

Yes They use the same axle width as a standard 2 horse trailer and if they have front steering axle attached to hitch, They tow like a dream with no tongue weight so smaller vehicles can tow them. They are very stable and do not sway from horse movement. I owned a one horse and a 2 horse inline in the 70's and loved them for towing purposes. They do suck backing up but it is do able in daylight. I actually bought a 4 horse version of the trailer last year made in 1960 hauls horses side by side like 2 or 4 horse straight loads side by side it has three axles lots of tack and road gear storage, in great condition.
