two things...

-I needed as much room internally as possible. Do a lot of trash runs, don't want things getting caught up on them from inside.

something to note: The 2x4's are planned to be "aero" as well. I did a 3/4" chamfer on the front. I have a foam cutter on the way and will be doing the boat tail on the end with foam, then glue and paint it in there. Now, that doesn't help the lip on there, but figured I'd mention this. I'll likely add the tail for the lips on the actual boat tail for the full trailer, which should help a bit.
