How to lift Hunter Compact Jr shell from trailer frame

I don't know that I WANT to do this but I would like to know HOW to do this.

How do I get the shell of my Hunter Compact Jr 1972 off the trailer to have the trailer inspected, reinforced, sandblasted and painted?
Can anyone direct me to threads that show how folks have added pieces to make their trailer bigger/faster/better/longer? Like adding a spare tire mount to the tongue?

Love this site! Thanks for any and all help. Jane

The linked photo is a spare tire mount made of an upside down "T" shaped piece bolted to the tongue. This was 2" x 2" wooden with a bolt thru the top that secured the spare.
