I would say that is a rather ingenious eye opener, but not quite what I would consider using.

It might be all right for the once or twice a year trip to Home Depot now,
do forgive me if you had not intended this for commercial use,
because the real problem I see long-term is safety on the road.

All it takes is one time you forget to strap that thing down...
Believe me, with daily or frequent use this does happen.

And you really don't need a ramp, just lift it up on there by hand.
But again, for very light, occasional use only.

what do you mean other ideas? You just told us that not using a ramp will be fine. Call this a dumb idea or what ever but make a handle for the trailer so you could use it as a heavy duty cart as well and you can manuver it to hitch up to your golf cart. then again you are 15 so you might not be able to move the thing with a bunch of weight on it.

Maybe add some stake pockets and removable sides. Use cedar its light and strong.

I had a cart for my 21 and tools back when I was 10 or 11 it worked out great for my neighborhood.
