On a 4.8 RIB either will be fine. Rollers tend to show their advantage for larger, heavier craft, or when recovering in a cross tide.
Bunks can be a problem if the trailer is submerged too far into the water, on recovery, which makes aligning the hull difficult. I always used to back my old bunked trailer in until the aft roller was about a foot below the surface, then simply manhandle the boat (14' ski boat
) so the keel rested on the roller, snap the winch hook on and winch away for around 20-30 seconds: job done.
