Prepping / treating / painting trailers is a complete waste of time, money and effort.

You'll never get to the areas that really matter.

If the trailer still has plenty of meat on it, strip it and send it to the galvanisers.

Last time I galvanised a trailer it cost about 100.

Wouldn't waste my time and money.

By the time that the frame has deteriorated to such a state that it requires re-galving, all of the ancillary bits will also be suffering. By the time that they are stripped, replaced or renewed the jobs not worth doing.
A tidy, quality, lightly used trailer would be the preferred option IMO.
