Seat post mounted trailer hitches

I was just looking at the "Trailer Construction Tips" thread, and saw a LOT of 'sidewinder' type hitches, but not many seat post mounted hitches. I'm looking for ideas for my second trailer, and want to use a seat post mount.

My first trailer uses one, but is a little heavy (27lbs), so I am thinking of doing another one, but lighter.
