Rollers

I got a pair for my trailer from Northern Tool and Equipment web site. Search for the Ironton Roller and Bracket. $20 a piece. I had 2 on my trailer for my boat (cat) for at least 4 years and they work awesome.

Grainger's sells a 9-10'' roller that has worked well for our cat trailer. A local welder fabricated a full length roller from some scrap that he had onto the "tailgate" in between the Grainger's rollers for us.

I saw a trailer down in Moab a couple of weeks ago that had what looked to be a hard rubber or polyurethane shallow "v" roller that looked pretty trick. Probably from a boat or marine supply source. They looked to be 10-12'' wide. Perfect for a cat.

Just pulled this up online - seem to be there. I used four for my 14'er. 5 years old, still work great - cool thing is the axles are spring loaded, so you can pull the rollers off during the winter.

I also used the Northern Tool roller option for my trailer and 12' raft. Holy crap, what a difference! I spaced out 3 rollers evenly and the total cost was about $70 for 3 rollers and hardware, bolts, washers and lock nuts. I googled norther tool coupon for the updated codes - worked great. Note: previous posts stated the the rollers were spring loaded which would make removal a snap. Mine were not spring loaded. I drilled small holes at each end and using a cotter pin to secure and to remove easily when. It in use. I plan on testing in real world in 2 days. Click image for larger version

I just got this cool setup from Jake at whitewaterworthy.com

Fully loaded boat rolls of with zero effort, loading is almost as easy.
And they are not noisy.
Rollers can be removed easily if you want to use trailer for other stuff
