Drag bars on Grey Wolf 28 bh

On our last trip, I drove over uneven pavement with a pronounced dip and bent one of the V shaped drag bars that are obviously there to protect the undercarriage and the holding tank drains. The bars are made of flat iron of rather thin material. Living on BC's Sunshine Coast, I must take the BC Ferries to get on and off the Coast, and during a very low tide, the "dip" created by the loading ramp is quite severe causing the back end of the trailer to drag. I would like suggestions as to how to improve on the existing drag bars. Perhaps adding heavy angle iron would keep them from bending. A friend suggested attaching small wheels to the bars. Has anyone encountered this problem and is there a suitable fix?

And weld a bar just above the wheels.
