Old girl gets new life

So I bought new (to me) 1984 Hudson Bros trailer. It is 14 ft long, 7,000 lb , 1 3/4 x 6 "C" channel frame.
Very rusted.

$500 ...... I guess too much

I did not like how ramps offset below deck.
Also, the whole rear is looks odd. The flat stock where boards sitting on is rusted badly (see pic).

Suspension is shot, crapy axles, fenders and old.
If I going to put so much work into it may be new 6,000 lb axles with new suspension and new fenders are calling my name?

If it's not diesel - it's my chainsaw.

I'd like to make the tong much stronger and room for tool box as well.
