Way off topic..............

So, I also have two boats, one of which the trailer scrapes a peak in the driveway just past the sidewalk portion. The part that scrapes is the rear most part of the trailer. We use pieces of 2 x 10s under the trailer tires to clear but it's a pain in the okole depending on how I approach the driveway. I've seen metal rollers that can be welded to the bottom of RV trailers to prevent bottoming out but would rather not use metal as it would eventually destroy the concrete. Anyone know of a rubber type roller that could be used instead? Thanks in advance.

How level does the boat ride behind the truck? Can you lower the hitch height and still ride fairly level?

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I'll check both out but I do have reservations about the HF ones. I've seen other HF trailer accessories and am concerned with the quality and thickness of the metal used. Others and myself have had HF metal items fail after one or two uses.

I'm also going to call the trailer manufacturer today to see if they have something also.
