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.
