Default Best location for self centering keel roller?

I bought a self centering keel roller for my Karavan roller trailer. Is the best place to mount it on the middle cross member, or the one closest to the transom. Iím thinking the middle, but want to make sure before I crawl under the trailer to mount it. I couldnít find a solid pic of a mount when I searched. Thanks.

I put mine on the closest cross member to the winch stand, works great. Sorry about the sideways pic

Duck,
To resolve the non centering issues, I added two self centering rollers. One at the transom and one midships. I found that one self centering roller did not completely cure the issue.

Be safe
