"Camber" for sure. String a couple to get an idea on the amount.
It is also common to see the top side of tube frame main rails welded with a zig zag pattern. This shrinks the steel and creates camber. On "I" beam frames it can also be a straight weld along top web and flange fillet.
I mention this as possible way camber a tube or "I" beam. It is quite on common trailer frames.
You may want to decide for yourself what this practice does for the structural integrity.
