Sounds like a good plan with the two trailers for different purposes.

That is the trick with stick built trailers, to not put too many miles on them, and they hold up quite well. I had a 24' Terry I bought used, which had been on one holiday in 2 years, then sat in a lot at a campground. I had it for 12 years, used it on two 2 week holidays, otherwise it sat as a cabin at our land.
When I sold it in the spring of '09, just before picking up my Escape
19, the rubber nibs were still on the old, old original tires
. Everything was solid.
I had a friend with a similar Terry trailer, but he towed it a lot. After 10 years, nothing seemed to work right on it, doors not latching or sticking, windows
not working good, and so on.
