Default Trailer build questions/pics

I do a bunch of bump and runs with cars all over and take my truck to the dunes and a single place trailer isnt workin anymore. I have a mobile home trailer just the frame and plan on building at least a 2 place goose neck out of it any ideas or pics of things done like this before?

budget? I'd say get some rough sawn oak 2-2.5" thick, 20 gallons of used motor oil and go to town. do some cross bracing, and add some tie downs/tool box/storage and call it good. lights - lots of lights. maybe some rope/christmas lights in place of running lights. gotta keep with the toter home theme right? paint - tractor paint. I know you're wanting to do it up cheap, but don't do camo. that means buying 2 more colors. finish it off with some mismatch wagon wheels and some half bald mud tires from flatblack or mudbilly.
