I'm thinking of doing the same on top for stuff that is long or awkward (like an EZ-UP, gear bags, spares...) but the cargo boxes hadn't occurred to me. On the face of it it seems brilliant for wind resistance.
Original plan was to add a roof top tent to this trailer. I then bought a pop-up camper with a toy hauler deck on the front. Since then I only use this trailer for day rides and short one/two night trips. The Thule roof box lets me haul 2 riders worth of gear and whatever else we need while being waterproof and lockable. The panniers from my old bike are also lockable to the trailer and waterproof and work great as a beer cooler.
I think it may be just under 500lbs as it sits now....

This pic was my original inspiration...
