Flat bed is more handy for day trips, storage under for long distance trips/multiday shuttles.
Roller bar or rollers is a must.
As long as 16', as short as 10-12'. You really only get support under the flat of the tubes. The kick can hang over as long as your tongue is long enough. check your local laws for overhang behind the rear taillights. Still, you can build platforms/bunks that are longer than the trailer frame. Shorter is lighter.
The largest you can fit. Larger diameter = tires and bearings last longer.
14-15" is ideal. Nothing smaller than a 12" rim for longevity.
A spare is a must.
Spare bearings are a must.
