Been kind of browsing around looking at different trailer types and all that. Debating if I should build one from scratch or buy a used one and modify it to my needs. Then I ran across a military surplus sight and it showed the M1102 trailer. Its small, about the same width as a Jeep and they can be had for pretty low prices.
Drawbacks; It weighs in at 1460LBs with a payload of 2740LBs which if loaded fully would be 4200LBs!!!! Thas as much as my Jeep. Checked the manufacturers sight and build specs. They said; "Unitized body construction using aircraft grade aluminum and chromoly steel".
I think its more chrome than aluminum but hey, that's just a guess.
Another drawback is (depends on how you look at it here ) It comes stock with 37/12.5/R16.5 Goodyear Wrangler M/T, with 30-mile run flat inserts.
I cant have my doggone trailer having bigger tires than my Jeep does darn it!!
If any of you are interested in this kind of stuff, and theres tons of stuff for sale too, heres the link to their sight.

Heres a pic of the M1102 trailer. Looks pretty darn cool too. Imagine that with a trailer tent setup on top. Could do a great road trip.
