I ended up putting a drive on style vertical V-pad like you see on most of the Nautique trailers and removed that setup all together. Love it!!

He has a V-pad in addition to the roller. This is how the MC trailers have been set up since the trailer change in '93.
My '96 had the same set-up and worked great! Since your trailer is not an OEM trailer, you probably needed the added support and uprights to make it work.
