Ditto. Easier to keep the car dry too.

Ok, pull the bow post forward out the road, move the boat forward onto the front roller, slide the back roller under the transom. If you really want it neat, then cut off the spare bit at the back with a hacksaw. Slide the bow post against the bow and slide a wedge between the plate and the chassis at the front, this will push the snubber down below the ubolt. Tighten it all up and away you go. This trailer is designed to be totally adjustable, even the axle mounts with ubolts so you can adjust the balance point.
