It's a universal frame the stake pockets are there for the models with out the steel rails. In your case you have the rails so the pockets are of little use. I guess when they make the trailer the pockets are installed as part of the build before they figure out whats going on next I have them on my smallest trailer as well.

Well, on my trailer, they are used for busting my shins every once in a while. They work REALLY good....

They are tie downs. Next time you pass a flat bed semi with a load tied down with the wide yellow ratchet straps, you'll see how they're connected. The wide mouth on the tie down will allow the wide hooks on the strap to fit. It will allow you to tie down larger loads, like pallets of seed, mulch and so on.
