Those bottoms steel are very important.
There are called "skid plates."
When you go in and out of gas stations as an example, you more than likely will drag the rear end of the trailer.
Those skid plates prevent tearing up the rear of the trailer.
When they wear enough, just replace them, but never discard them.
A few owners have installed "dolly wheels" at the rear.
One word answer.
If you do, the first time you drag the rear end on each side, you will damage the rear quarter panel on that side.
Let the skid plates do their job.
