    Default Roller for rear of boat trailer

    I have an old Girou trailer and the rear is real low and scrapes whenever pulling out of a driveway. The only time it doesn't scrape is when I can pull out at a wide angle which is not always possible. Anyone got any ideas as to where I can get a roller and also as to what kind?

    We used the old wrist pins from rebuilt semi-truck motors or heavy equipment type motors. The rebuilders used to give them to us for free. They work great.

    I used the wheel from an old broken aluminum jack. Fabbed up some brackets and bolted on the wheel. The wheel is like 5 inches wide so works quite well. Hangs just low enough below trailer.
