It sounds like a good idea and it sounds like that it's to store heavy items after you arrive. I used to throw them in the back of the truck, untidy! Just keep in mind that any weight you add for traveling either adds to or takes away from the tongue weight. Keep this balance in mind. Also the trailer will do a lot of bouncing and don't wan't it to bounce apart. You might want to use heavy bolts and nuts instead of machine screws all around.
