That is a horse trailer- there is nothing frameless about them, they usually have HUGE I beams that run the length of them, as they are designed for 1,200 lbs+ for each horse, and that weight is in a very small foot (hoof) print. All that weight is also moving around, so they are very sturdy built. You would of course have the box in the sides, but I have an old stock trailer I was planning on doing the same thing with-

The axles usually all have brakes (unlike a lot of car trailers) and are usually 7K# axles. Generally speaking a horse trailer is a lot more sturdy built than most flatbed car trailers and way more sturdy than all the RVs that people seem fond of turning into flatbed car haulers.
