Default Mounting Reid on Trailer

Need advice / pictures on how to mount a 15 HP Reid (or oil field engines in general) on a trailer. Initial thought is to run u-bolts from the trailer frame through the skid. Haven't found a low cost / appropriate gvwr trailer yet so can't speak to what the frame will be and what the centers will be. Also not sure what's good enough vs overkill for mounting.

This is all speculative since trailers cost money. I have a 18' with 5200# axles that I use. But loading / unloading is a hassle & would like to have Big Red on a dedicated trailer.

Appreciate any guidance.
