    trailer damaging my front bumper

    I made the mistake of purchasing a trailer for my RXP that holds the ski by its front bumper and it bends it out of place and messes up its shape, is it possible for me to change the front peice of the trailer over to one that holds it through the hull on the bottom???

    Adjust the height of the upright/roller. loosen the U bolt and move it down.

    If the nose roller is fixed adjust the trailer buncks up in the front to support the hull in the right place.

    thats the thing my trailer doesn't have a nose roller thats what I want to find out if I can add to it and eliminate the design I have now to resolve my problem and not have to buy a new trailer. I pictured what I have now.

    I have that same one but my problem is I keep braking them. I will try that idea about adjusting the trailer bunks.

    Depending on how your winch post is mounted to your trailer you may just be able to replace it. I did a quick google search to see what's out there so you might want to look too because you may find some of this stuff cheaper:

    Rollers

    Roller Hardware

    You'll also probably need all the miscellanious bolts and hardware. It would be kind of a pain for you to piece all this together but I think you'd be happier than with your current set up.

    Actually, looking at your picture again, Green Monster is correct.

    Can you not just move the winch assembly down? So that way all of your force is horizontal against the ski with no vertical pressure?
