That looks like an interesting idea. I would love to have some lockable, dry storage on my open trailer. But I do have a concern with the design.
Have you measured the % weight on the tongue when loaded? Even with the box on the front, I would be concerned about the load balance with the CG of the elise so far back. It's nearly behind the rear axle of the trailer.
I have a similarly designed custom trailer. To address this, I back the car onto the trailer and it puts the majority of the weight over the axles. It then pulls beautifully.
