Security/Weather Protection: Anyone ever used a box trailer to "garage" a bike in?

Awright, this may be a stupid question following a stupid idea but has anyone any experience or advice about using a box trailer to "garage" a bike in?

I live in a rented flat, parking is big parking bays (long enough to get a full size LWB Merc Sprinter in without overhanging the road or path!) between 2 rows of flats, overlooked quite well by the flats on both sides. I was wondering about getting a small basic trailer for chucking mountain bikes in for Mrs Wife and I to go attack some trails and that made me wonder about getting a box trailer. I have been away from bikes for a while and want to get back on the road but as I wouldn't be using it over the winter and have nowhere to store a bike, I wondered about using a box trailer for garaging the bike in as security and to keep it out of the Scottish weather over the winter as well as for loading the mountain bikes and crap in for going out to the 7 Stanes mountainbike centres.

Is this something anyone else has done? Or is it just a stupid idea?
