Got this trailer by accident as I normally do cars so thought I would give it a go as the model shop sent me the wrong item please let me know what you think ?

Looks really good.  I like it.  Now you need a tractor to pull it!

it's a 40 year old AMT kit with some fit issues, but it can build up nicely.  Here's mine:

I did use an extra exhaust stack deom a GMC Astro to get the dual stacks, the decals are from various kits, and the flap logos are from JBot.

Thanks.  And it'll look good pulling a flatbed.  Here's the 1:1 I used as inspiration:
