The pvc perimeter to the longer kid's sled adds a lot of stiffening which lessens the tendency to tip over because it allows a tighter rope tie over the top of any carried gear. Otherwise a tight top rope squeezing the sides will tend to round the sled bottom, making it unstable with a high CoG.

Perhaps similar to adding a slightly wider frame base & adding a set of skis to help in deeper snow/slush over flatter terrain with a heavy load, but not necessarily ideal for more rugged trail/off-trail travel..
