I have the float-on trailer for my suv and I found that the setup was just not working for me. The trailer is an excellent rig but the front cross memeber is straight across which makes it necessary to completely sink the trailer to get the boat on. And, then you can not winch it tight w/o pulling forward to get the bow high enough to fit/snug in the stand. The simple solution was to install a 12" roller on the cross member which allows the bow to roll across the cross member and the bow is then high enough to snug up. Also I do not have to sink the trailer nearly as far before. Not a brainiac move but hope it helps.
