Now, new homebuilt trailer are no longer acceptable.
So was there any reason for this or the government just decide one day they were not going to allow people to build their own trailers?

I have spent hours searching the US news articles for trailer accidents and as far as I can tell most of the accidents have been from people not knowing how to attach a trailer to a vehicle one way or another and not using safety chains. A few were grossly over loaded crashed because they couldn't stop. And fewer were due to a wheel falling off.
