Is it a straight section, or curved? If straight, I'd replace it with a box tube. You can get structural HDG steel and mounting accessories from a variety of places, Champion Trailers among them.
If you want to go cheap, you could bolt a flat bar to the open side of the C, essentially forming your own box section.
Never seen the second link you had there. Nifty idea. The transom save link is essentially what I use.
