If I go through with this project the trailer will be used as a platform for a park model trailer/demountable modular housing unit and garage combo. I wanted to get the height down so that the step in height was a few steps lower than if it were mounted over the wheels.

Carrying a 20 ft. container is just a side benefit. I agree that if the trailer were dedicated to moving ISO containers that I'd probably go with another design.
