if this trailer has tandem axles, you would not be able to make the trailer tilt away from the tongue as some trailers do, you would need 1 frame that holds the suspension and both axles, and the tongue would be attached to that, and then the deck and its frame would sit on top of that and have a set of pivot points behind the last axle, so that the axles/tires sit flat on the ground at all times, and the entire deck pivots down and away from the tires.

Hardly seems worth it to a low angle beavertail, and get some longer ramps...may also try to lower the suspension and/or tire size on the trailer, or jack up the tongue as Bones suggested.
