I have a 6.6 trailcraft and want to modify the trailer to make it easier to drive on, has anyone done this with a trailcraft trailer or similar? Thinking ill have to remove centre rollers and fit skids? Any advice appreciated, cheers

 There would be plenty on here that are more knowledgeable on this topic than what I am but I don't see why the centre rollers should be an issue.

If a drive on trailer is designed well enough that centralises the boat on the trailer when you hit it with momentum then the rollers in the centre can only help. I emphasize the designed well enough aspect of my comment.

I'm not sure where you fish chop but keep in mind if you do have to beach retrieve at any stage 100% drive on design might not be the way to go. Good luck

 Anything possible if $$$s aren't an issue. Go see the boys at Fremantle trailers.

My trailer is drive on with rollers and an L&R boat latch and I have no issues at all and I installed guide posts either side which has been a great help in getting her straight quickly on winding days when you end up hitting the trailer at an angle. As the boat latch is on a spring I always ensure at least half of the boat is in the water before I undo/redo the winch and chain just in case but still keep my feet dry.
