Sounds like you need a tilt trailer, so you can get the rear roller lower while retreiving.
Tilt trailers hinge the draw bar of the trailer. One photo shows the locking pin and the other shows where the draw bar hinges, just behind the winch post.
If you can imagine lifting the front of your trailer while you are retreiving your boat, that is what happens with a tilt trailer except you don't need to unhitch your trailer from your car
to get the back of your trailer lower. It wouldn't be to hard to convert your trailer.
