So now I'm back to the little bolt-together trailers. Specifically the Ironton 40x48.

It has twice the weight capacity I want, and its only 150 lbs. The width is good, but its 2 feet too short. I'll have to figure out how to deal with that.

It's pretty easy to add length to the frame. I started with a Red Trailers 5x8, and lengthened it to 9'-7" achieve my 5x10 cabin. In my case the rails were lengthened by using two of the light gauge crossmembers. The frame doesn't carry much of the structural load, the cabin body does in my case.
You don't know the power of the Dork Side.
