Making cargo / kid trailer out of BMX bike

I look at those $$$ cargo trailers and see: a front mounting
fork, a swivel pivot for the cargo frame, and a small
trailing wheel.

If you are willing to go with a little higher and closer
frame, and two big panniers instead of one big bag, mounting
a BMX bike sans drive train seems the way to go.

Another good point if it is a real BMX bike, it could handle
big loads, even giving a friend a lift.

It seems a good match for a 20" wheel 'bent.

Anyone see such as thing?
