You might want to consider the expense of a sheet of diamond plate aluminum. I used it on mine 8 years ago, and it has held up better than the rest of the trailer. Meanwhile, the plywood on the 4 year old trailer has rotted through, even though it was painted on all sides. And it will stiffen the trailer a lot if you decide not to fold it (the small casters are largely useless on anything but very smooth concrete).

Oh, and tighten the CRAP out of those frame bolts - mine is permanently tweaked, I'm going to have to use a come-along or something to flatten it to weld all the non-foldable joints sometime soon.
