Light duty dump trailer build questions

Looking to build a small dump trailer for a barn, primary use will be to reduce workload and amount of trips in and out of the barn to muck stalls and bring in fresh shavings. Not going to be used on road, so no busloads of nuns will be in danger.

4x8x1 bed, planning to use 14ga for the floor and sides

Would 2x3 .120 wall rectangular tubing be sufficient for the frame? 2x2 for the bed?

In Iowa, we use manure spreaders for that.

Find an old pickup bed, or back half of a truck and make a dump trailer from that
