Some silver mods would help the trailer look newer and less like it time warped from the set of Sanford & Son . Adding a cross bar to support the rear of the trailer and having some bi-fold doors fab'd up would be a lot easier then messing with those boards. The cross bar would really support the sides better so they don't end up pushed out under even average use.

I would budget $1000 for some high quality mods. I dropped a grand on my C&M gooseneck to replace the fold down gate with duals and make a few support mods.

Have you inspected all the wheels for end play since it's an older trailer? I'd be tempted to just throw away all the bearings and replace them since it costs so little.

Truck lettering and design look really nice. Very clean design which is a good change from some I've seen.

Spend 45k on a truck, but you cannot spend 3k on a nice wrap? The 3k wrap will make you more money than a 45k truck.

Full wraps are really sensory overload. Some you have to hunt to figure out what they are selling and where the contact info is. Enclosed trailers yes, trucks no. Just my 2 cents.
