Lund,
In my case, the trailer had three cross bars.
One at the stern, one midships and one near the bow.

I used self centering rollers in all three locations and between the three rollers in their positions, the boat centers every time.

------------------
In the case of the trailer in question, there appear to be three keel pads on the trailer.

If these three pads are removed and replaced with self centering rollers, I am guessing that it will center much better than it currently does.

Also, the reason for going with 12 inch wide rollers as opposed to a more narrow roller/s.

If the boat really gets off center, the wider roller may still be able to help with the centering.

But, if the roller was only 4 inches wide, a bad load could put the keel off on one side of the roller and make it very difficult to get it right, unless the boat is refloated and loaded again.

This just might be the ticket. I'm going to try these. I believe they will fix the issue... Its not a big issue, on centering, but I'm a perfectionist, and these look like they would work.
Thank you for sharing, I do appreciate it.

Don't know if you have rollers or bunks. I have bunks and found that as long as trailer is level, it loads straight every time if I don't back in too deep. I power load and if I back the trailer in too far, the boat floats to the side vs having the bunks center it. Just something to think about or try.
Ches.
