different. Here you will have the loaded trailer twisting, it will most likely result in a lot of forces on the hitch. The hitch will be responsible for holding the trailer straight and I bet you will feel it when riding. Even if you have a dual point attachment like BOB does, I'm afraid this will result in unstable ride and damage to the hitch.
On top of that your center of gravity is very high. The reason BOB has a wheel behind the main basket is so the basket can be low to increase stability. Putting a single wheel under
a wide platform is not a good idea IMHO. Seriously, think it over, before putting more work into it. Perhaps put the wheel behind the frame, so you can bring the frame lower to the ground, BOB style?
