Hi Etrailer.
What happened to George
who wrote me about this about a year ago. Anyway you will figure it out.
This has been a slow project because I am an old retired guy living on a surfing beach way down in Mexico. I brought all the parts from you down in my truck about two years ago. All the parts came from you and the steel and paint I bought here in Mexico. I built the trailer in my shop here and had to modify it several times to fit the strange requirements we have for launching off the beach with waves. I never seem to remember to take the camera or my phone to the beach to show that procedure but it is a little involved compared to a tilt trailer on a boat ramp. If I back the trailer into the water the wave action washes the sand out from under the trailer tires and the quad tires and them I am stuck. I have to launch in the hard sand just inland from the waves and parallel to them. The trailer can only tilt until the rear cross member is just above the sand or I cannot pull the trailer out from under the boat with the 500 lb. Honda 4WD quad. We put pieces of 2 inch black irrigation plastic tubing about 6 feet long under the boat as it is coming down off of the trailer as it is pulled out. This gives us old guys the chance to push the boat 90 degrees until it faces the waves. We wait for some larger waves to roll up under the boat and then we push it into the water and away we go when we find a lull in the incoming waves. We use the boat to get to surfing spots and then fish on the way home. The trailer pictures I am sending are showing the tilt stop that is not quite in use as I am just running the engine in my drive way. The fat little tires are for the sand.
If this project is of interest to you I have some pictures showing the construction of the trailer that better show some of your hardware. I will also try to remember the camera the next time we launch. Our waves are bigger in the summer time so we will have to wait for a small surf day to play with the boat.
Everything that happens here in Mexico is slow and there was some spine surgery that also slowed things down a bit. But a year later I am still surfing and playing with the boat.
That's my story and sorry to be so slow.

I DID NOT RECEIVE THE KEEL ROLLER IN THE BOX WITH THE SHAFTS. DID THIS SHIP SEPERATELY? I DID NOT RECEIVE A SEPARATE SHIPPING TRACKING FOR THE KEEL ROLLER.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this right away. Thank you for letting us know!



by:

The white insert popped out as soon as it had pressure on it. Even with washers Not good.



by:

I needed a replacement roller for my boat trailer and came across the Yates 18"roller
online at etrailer.com. The quality was good according to the information on their website and the price was reasonable. So, I installed it using a Moeller 19"L X 5/8 dia galvanized shaft, 2- 5/8" spacer washers to eliminate side to side play and 2- 5/8 end caps. I works great! Thank you etrailer.



by:

The roller arrived just fine. BUT I HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE accompanying 19" shaft. I don't know why they wouldn't be shipped together. When may I expect delivery of the shaft??

It looks like your order was split. I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this in more detail!



by:

Outstanding product and value. Used on a whitewater raft trailer where these two rollers allow for uploading and loading the raft in remote locations.



by:

Exactly what I had ordered.



by:

Product as advertise -- fits perfect and did the job



by:

Very quick service,couldn't have been any easier



by:

The roller works well with the 19 inch shafts. I purchased 3 rollers and they were as advertised, arriving in good condition and ahead of schedule. What was especially great about etrailer.com, however, was the level of service I received from the staff. They shipped the order early, and sent it with a faster delivery than I had paid for, and then they followed up to make sure I was happy with the order. I expect this level of service from the brick and mortar stores I do business with, and it is great to see that level of service carried forward onto the internet. I definitely will order again from this company when I have need for etrailer.com product.



by:

Great quality, price and speedy service. You can't ask for more. Bought two lengths of the taper roller, and some of the 4" wobble rollers. All fit well. I refer all my 'handy' pals to etrailer. Thanks, Hal



by:

Great product and their webs site has detail about product for the buyer to determine if they have the correct replacement part. A great company to buy from and help is available if you need it

Great produces and great service



by:

Good Quality!



by:

It arrived a day early and in great shape. It actually fit on my boat trailer. What I really liked is that they have a great tracking system from getting the order to final destination. Good Job!



by:

All of your products were of very good quality and fit perfectly the first time. Thank you for being genuine. I especially appreciate you selling Dutton Lainson products, as I grew up in Hastings, NE. They are a very good manufacturer.



by:

It worked great and we're still working fine



by:

We were very pleased to get the 18" roller when we couldn't find it anywhere locally. It arrived in good order and the company was great at communicating with us, since it was on back order. Your tracking report is wonderful to follow!!!



by:

This is my first time using E-Trailer and very pleased with the quick turn around plus free shipping saved me nearly $30.00. Will be back for more...



by:

I ordered an 18" keel roller for my boat trailer. It showed up in a timely manner and I fixed the trailer and took the boat out on the water. Couldn't be happier.



by:

Very sturdy. Quick shipping.



by:

The keel rollers that I received work great! The ordering process was simple and the delivery came in a timely manner. If I ever need another set of rollers, I would not hesitate to buy from this company.



by:

Keel roller worked great for my boat trailer . The price was good and shipped to my house. I installed it yesterday. Thanks Clinton



by:

This particular keel roller is 17 - 18 inches long. I could not find the roller in different marinas close to my lake cottage and it was not offered with many companies on the internet. Cost of roller and shipping was reasonable. I received my order in 5 days.



by:

Excellent 18" Keel roller. It arrived on time, in perfect condition.
Thanks for making my purchase a pleasant experience.



by:

Not much to review as to the item, just a tubular chunk of rubber. But the service from etrailer was flawlessly smooth!

  • 12 Inch Keel Roller And Bracket
    The U-shaped bracket is not something we carry, but we do have a much stronger assembly for the keel roller. I recommend using the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel/Black Rubber - 12" # CE10405G for a complete mount and roller. We also have the CE Smith Universal-Fit Split Panel Brackets for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel - 1 Pair # CE10500G which can be used with the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers - Zinc-Plated Steel -...

  • Can the White Ends of the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers # YR18244-165EC be Removed
    I went out into our warehouse and pulled a Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers # YR18244-165EC and after some careful prying with a slot screwdriver I was able to remove the white ends of the roller. Once removed the diameter of the hole of the roller is 1-3/8 inches, which is just an 1/8 of an inch shy of being 1-1/2 inches.

  • What is the Widest Keel Roller for a Boat Trailer
    Thanks for reaching out, Michael! The widest roller we have is the 18" Long Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers # YR18244-165EC which installs on a trailer using the CE Smith Universal-Fit Split Panel Brackets # CE10500G, the 19" Roller Shaft w/Cap Nuts # 107-30A, and either bolting into the trailer frame or around it with U-Bolts. Since I'm not sure what the size of your frame is I've gone ahead and added a link to our U-Bolt kit selection for you to filter through, but I'd be more than...

  • Recommended Keel Roller For Best Weight Capacity on Boat Trailer
    The Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - Super-Heavy-Duty Rubber - 18" Long - 5/8" Shaft # YR18244-165EC is not weight rated. The weight of the boat will actually be on the bracket and the 5/8 inch shaft that runs through the heavy-duty roller. Your application with the front weight the roller is more likely to bend the longer you make the roller. For instance the 18 inch roller along with the brackets # CE10500G and Roller Shaft w/Cap Nuts 19" x 5/8" # 107-30A will be more likely...

  • Keel Roller for Sun Deck Boat Trailer
    It all depends on the size of the bracket that you currently have. The Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers item # YR18244-165EC you were looking at would work on an 18" bracket. This is made of a super-heavy-duty rubber that fits on a 5/8" shaft. One thing to remember is the wider the roller the more likely it is to sag. Depending on the number of rollers and weight of your Sun Deck boat you may need to use a 12" one or smaller. I have linked our selection of Keel Rollers to help you find...

    We do indeed have the roller shafts you are needing. For the 18 inch roller, use part # 107-30A, which includes the pal nuts for the end of the roller shaft. For the 12 inch roller, you can use # CE10727A, which also includes the pal nuts.

  • Combination Keel/Caster Roller Assembly for Tandem Axle Shorelander Boat Trailer
    A keel roller is not designed to carry the bulk of a boat's weight. That is the job of the bunks, whether they are wobble roller bunks like yours, standard roller bunks or carpeted bunks. Also, it is not a good idea to mount any of these boat support components to the trailer axles. Doing so would allow the forces from bumps to be transmitted directly to the boat's hull. All items that support the boat itself should be mounted to the trailer frame, which is then isolated from the road by...
