Walker Engineering built the NZ-made versions of the No5, and were the only builders.

The Brockhouse trailer was a completely different design UK trailer that looks more like a miniature version of what we know in Aust as the 1 Ton Humber or Corio trailer. It was introduced into NZ Army service with the Series 1. It had a 15cwt rating, or about 750Kg.

Cheers for the info, you can see they are rather different. I wonder how the person has them mixed up!?

Because in NZ, the wider public equate "Army Trailer" to mean "Brockhouse".

Same as many people who don't know any better think that any older style 4x4 is called a "Jeep", just a generic term that sounds better than "One of those thingies".

Best guess, similar to the type towed by a 1 ton Humber.

Didn't the Kiwi Army have No5 to go behind the Skippys?

I thought they did but I have no idea where they are. Rusting in civilian back yards probably.
Another Kiwi-built No5 on TradeMe:
