Ideally I would like an aluminum frame trailer but think that might push costs up a bunch. The composite panels were already the plan but I would like to use prebuilt ones meaning they would be flat. There is a supplier out side of Olympia, WA that does aluminum clad 4'x8'x2" for under $200 each. If I homebuild the panels in place I could do gradual curves but I have not actually tried to build my own. I want to keep the weight under 2500# loaded, preferably under 2000#.

Shouldn't a single axle be better in this application?
