Stripper canoes are pretty light
, not as light as Kevlar, but still light. The construction I've seen is two layers of fiberglass cloth in and two outside and third on the bottom. Once cured it doesn't take much to hold the shape and is pretty strong. I seem to remember 1 cross member in the middle and then the seats became part of the structure.
I would think that making a stripper trailer using the same technique and the structure elements in trailers like Scamp
would work. Work is right, but very pretty.
