I also bought a 4x8 trailer from Harbor Freight, one of the fold up models. I have a 14x7 NRS raft, and I have no problems with the trailer whatsoever. All I had to do was to put some 2x4's across the frame and add a carpeted plywood deck on top to get a nice, flat surface over the wheel fenders. I spent maybe $50 "heavilly customizing" it. LOL
If you don't have a lot of space or cash for the larger trailers, I don't see any issues with those trailers. I also bought it because I tow it with a Mustang (yes, a Mustang),a dn the towing capacity is only 1,000lbs, so the trailer had to be light so I could haul a loaded raft, cooler and all (no trunk space! LOL).
