Thanks for the better description Osseous! I can kinda picture it now. From what your saying, I wouldn't think I would even have to boost the front of the cat onto the trailer by hand, cant believe I never thought of this.

You may want to deflate the cat tubes a little- when they get near the roller, you can flex them up and over. When you resume winching, things will head in the right direction. On most cats, the tips of your tubes will be ahead of your frame- and the fulcrum will be below the roller. Not a big deal- you'll see what I mean when you try it.
