My '07 X-15 trailer says that. The maximum legal road with on all US roads is 102" - some roads are narrower, but none wider. An X-15 had 100" beam and the boat fits between the poles easily, so including pole width, my trailer has to be about 106" wide. To be technically legal, I should remove my guide poles, but never have. If a Trooper really wanted to call you out on that, I'm sure that wouldn't be a cheap ticket. Not all boats are that wide, so your matching trailer might not have that problem of excess guide pole width.
