Who has added rollers to the prop guide on their trailer. Getting tired of the horrible screeching sound.

have you tried a hitch with a lower drop?

I've thought about it but haven't done it yet. The main reason I haven't is because I don't ever drag the trailer. My neighbor will be adding them to his BU soon since he drags it every time he pulls it in or out of the garage.

I thought about adding those slide blocks they put on motorcycle boots but thicker, that makes sparks when they drag their feet. That way I get the light show to go with the nagging woman screech.

I have an adjustable hitch and I have the trailer sitting level. I tried a little nose down to help with the clearance on the prop guard, but then it makes a clearance issue for my spare tires.

I did it on my MC trailer and also have some on my current trailer. On my MC trailer, I used stainless steel "marine" rollers from Pak Industries (http://www.pakindustries.com/marine.html).

They looked great and protected the trailer, but left horrible marks on my driveway.

With my next trailer, I bought the poly-roller kit from the trailer manufacturer.

They don't look nearly as good as the stainless rollers, but they protect the trailer and don't leave horrible marks on my driveway.

So, in this battle of form over function, having owned both, I vote for function. Get poly rollers.

This is on my 'to do' list. Eastie, my plan was to do them like your MC trailer. Now you have me re-considering. I read a post today from a guy who added nylon sliders. Interesting idea.
