Are you buying or building these?

Replace the 1/2 inch wall plies with 1/4 inch, and the 2x's with 1x's. Just saying, you are building a light weight mobile camper not a garden shed.
Depending on what you will have for trailer xmbr's and what you plan to stow in the basement (doesn't look like there will be room for much) you could probably get away with 3/8 ply (or thinner) on the trailer deck.
Another option would be to eliminate all of the 2x4's spanning under the cabin floor and instead bisect the space with a plywood rib running down the space longitudinally (like Desert Moose did). That way the span is cut in half and you get the full depth for storage. Consider partitioning off the front of the basement with access from outside; otherwise it would be difficult to reach stuff that slides forward underway (unless you plan on having floor hatches, which can be a pain to get to under the bedding).
I highly recommend that anyone planning a basement take a look at the Dessert Moose build.

I added the entry door and the curved front piece.
I added a 1/8" gap around the rear doors and entry door to allow space for movement and weatherstripping.
I moved the top of the windows even with the top of the entry door.
I centered the entry side window between the entry door and rear wall.
I added more measurements. It is a bit of a mess viewed as a whole, but if select a component, that component's relevant measurements are displayed.
This is the last major update before construction begins.
