We have two Laser Bahias, three Laser Vagos, and four Laser Picos (nothing like a bit of brand loyalty!).
The Bahias go on a frame double stacker - we could possibly arrange a bracket on the front without too much difficulty - it's a very well balanced trailer at the moment.
The Vagos and one Pico go on two Mersea Trailers Regatta Double Stackers... we've had a bit of an issue with these! They have a large storage box underneath the two boats, and weigh a massive amount even unladen. We struggled just before our last camp getting weight far enough back to give an acceptable nose weight - there really is no scope on these for the outboards.
The last three picos go two on a double stacker - again we could do something with a bracket on this one, and the third on either a roofrack or a single roadbase (no options for engines here).
I think we fit somewhere between the I14 (I've just bought a 1/4 share in one of these, it's mental!) and the Oppy - the Vagos are pretty fast, so we need a decent bit of pace to keep up with them. In terms of towing from the SIB, 15hp should be plenty.
