I dunno, this seems like a borderline scrap metal hoarding disorder.

I know you need to register trailers, but what about insurance?

How tall is it inside?

Something like that could be made into an awesome service trailer. No wheel wells to get in the way, straight walls so shelving is easy (and deep shelving). 12' is a great length. you could fit a lot of pipe right inside. And it's cheap. Much, much cheaper than any comparable truck.

I have a 6 x 10 and it has 3000# axle and weighs roughly 1000# empty so my capacity is 2000#.

You probably have 2 3000# axles and 1500#-1700# in trailer weight.
