I'll bump this unanswered puzzle, and wait for an answer that I cannot even imagine.

I don't know about the mathematical explanation, but there is an obvious practical one.

You are on the right track.  With today's technology it is very well possible, and for some aesthetic purposes (non round flower pots) are made, but why even with today's technology are they still constructing most flower pots round and trailers rectangular (based).  You are very close with your trailer reasoning.

I don't know about the mathematical explanation, but there is an obvious practical one.

This may very well be true but is well beyond the scope of my training when I used to work in manufacturing.
