What do you think, is my trailer going to fall apart? What is my best option?
You can remove the end shell, but when reinstalling it, the riveting numbers should be increased in size and quantity, to assure that the rear end will not fall apart.
Remember, that the shell holds up the frame. The heavier the payload, the heavier the frame, the harder it becomes for the shell to hold it up.
You can also increase the size of the door opening, by probably as much as 2 feet, IF
Make some sketches before you begin the project, to assure proper weight and balance as well.
