Not so sure. Even if a trailer is rated to carry 'x' and looks the part, it can still be a 'bag of bolts' and handle like one if its not set up correctly to support the boat its meant to carry or winch on, but for sure, only experience has shown me how this needs to be done, there is no book on the subject, as every hull is different and trailers get made to accomodate a variety of hull shapes and weights with infinately adjustable trailer parts.
Good I say,... for the smooth way you can now launch and recover your boat, and center your hull every time on recovery, but the boat and trailer have to be united properly in transit, and that sometimes takes a good bit more thought when issues such as sudden braking, or constant jarring from potholes become relevant.
