It doesn't seem that you are planning to move the location of your axles (which would obviously require a lot more work on your part) but I feel that it would be necessary to make this trailer safe. You really should have 40% of the trailer length behind the axles and 60% in front, it seems like when you're done, you're going to be closer to 20/80 respectively causing far too much tongue weight, even for a goose neck, your tongue weight issue will then be exacerbated by the weight of the dump insert itself and then further so by the weight of the material in the dump insert.

If you aren't planning on moving the axles, than I really doubt this trailer will be safe or easy to tow.

Just my opinion.
