Mr Olds pointed out the load angle ( ferry loading ramps?) and possible chance of hitting the new undercarriage ? I've only tacked it on,so jacked it up..obviously I have taken into account the weight of the trike isn't on it,I see I may have to move the number plate/light board up ? Any suggestion ideas please?

You probably have enough clearance. Just stay away from the Cowes Floating Bridge chain ferry.
Perhaps a hinged lighting board across the scaffold stowage. It only has to be tall enough to fit a standard number plate.
 I assume that as this is an old trailer it wont be going in for IVA but it's worth having a read. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/individual-vehicle-approval-iva-for-light-trailers-help-to-get-a-pass/individual-vehicle-approval-iva-for-light-trailers-help-to-get-a-pass#retro

The number plate unit simply unbolts so I can easily remedy that,and yes it's a very old trailer by a company I believe doesn't exist nowadays ? And I shall have a read of the link..cheers dude  Wink
