Default Rear Trailer bottom out Modz??

Alright guys I've searched around the forums and cant seem to find anyone doing it or any pictures but ordering a new trailer and was talking to the builder and was talking about dragging the *** end pulling in and out of gas stations all the time, and has anyone ever tried to like put some rollers in the back or a small set of like Caterpillar rubber carriage wheels to avoid scraping the actual trailer?? Just looking for some guidance or thoughts lets hear em!

I have seen this as an option before on sled trailers, don't recall the brand though. I think they were metal rollers just mounted at the tail end of the two frame rails. (similar to wakeboard boat trailers that have the prop cage a few inches off the ground)

Wheels would reduce the already limited amount of clearance & would actually increase the frequency of incidents.

I've considered bolting on some steel wear plates at each rear corner.
Of course it would still "grind" but it would not be trailer structure wearing away.
If you wanted something quieter, perhaps some plastic or phenolic or something? I think steel would last the longest.

I had the issue on a 5th wheel holiday trailer some years ago. I went to a hitch shop and they welded two skid shoes off of each back corner of the frame. Yes it made noise when leaving parking lots with steep driveways but I knew that the part skidding on the pavement was not the rear bumper.

Is the trailer riding level? I've never had any problems but I can see where it could be if my trailer wasn't level.

My trailer was level but the axles were not flipped so it sat fairly low to the ground. It would only scrape the back end in severe steep parking lot exits
