If the trailer either uses, or can use keel rollers, add 3 of the self centering keel rollers under your boat. These self centering rollers do a remarkable job to center and keep the boat centered as the boat is loaded onto the trailer.

When I bought my boat it was on an aluminum "generic" trailer. I spent 2 years trying everything I could think of to get that boat on the trailer straight. After 2 two years of fighting a losing battle I replaced it with a 4 bunk Trailmaster designed for my boat. No more issues getting the boat on the trailer. My only regret was doing it sooner.


I hope this helps. Good luck.

Edit: Last sentence should read "My only regret was not doing it sooner".

I fish a lot by myself and loading can be a problem, especially in current. I got some Cabelas guide ons and they help a ton.

I have an Eagle Bunk Trailer and have been very happy with it. Mine has the Dexter axle and hubs. Makes servicing bearings a breeze.

I second on a Trailmaster Trailer.....I got a premium tube that was Tundra coated so I never have to worry about paint chipping off and then rusting.

I bought a Larson 2020 Tiller this winter and had the dealer conver the roller trailer to a bunk. They sent it to Eagle directly to have the work done and they signed off that it wouldn't void the warranty. So far 0 issues and believe its 100x better for my boat and needs. They converted the trailer and added supports as needed.
That boat is A LOT heavier than yours so a good trailer shop should be able to do it.

That's odd, many Shorelandr trailers were either or, mine is bunk, but came in a roller version as well, base trailer and axle are identical.

You will be very happy with the Heritage trailer. I assume you have the Vault hubs on it? The paint holds up very well on their trailers too.
