Rayii,
I had a similar issue with my roller trailer.

As a last resort, I replaced all of my keel rollers from the stern to the bow with 12 inch wide Stoltz self centering rollers.

They are simply unbelievable. No matter how I come onto the trailer, the self centering roller push the boat to the exact center of the trailer every time. I could not be happier.

Much much much less expensive than buying a new trailer.

And the bracket:

I thought you ALWAYS floated your boat on with the trailer deep in the water, so how do the self centering rollers work like that ? ? ?

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.
Now that the OP has purchased a new trailer:

Did you go with Trailmaster's tube or channel trailer? I am also looking at replacing my roller trailer. The channel intrigues me, since there is no unpainted surface to rust. However, I can't find any reviews on the channels.

I went with the channel frame for the exact reason you mention. My previous boat came with a tube frame trailer and eventually it started rusting out from the inside out.


I am very pleased with the quality of this trailer.

Default What did a new trailer cost?

Fishn_pa, if you don't mind me asking what did the new trailer cost? I have a'98 Warrior boat with a trailer that has seen better days. I am interested in the channel frame too.

Thanks
