The easy answer is roller coaster trailers and stepped hulls don't mix for just that reason. I don't understand why people supply these trailers for stepped hulls. We race a stepped hull RIB and have a traditional bunked trailer, never have a problem getting it off and keeping the trailer dry. No problem with traction either as we use a Nissan Navaro 4X4 pickup or a Range Rover "Dakar" with a front tow hitch and the biggest wheels you've ever seen!
It might be worth considering removing the rollers and replacing them with 2 bits of wood and some carpet, sometimes low-tech is the way to go!
And one last thing a bit of Fairy liquid on the carpet makes an enourmous difference if you're still having trouble!
