Keel Roller Assembly to Fit 3 Inch Wide Trailer Tongue on 2004 McClain Boat Trailer


I have a 2004 McClain boat trailer. Spacing of mounting slots: 3 apart on center Based on this spec., will this fit a 3x3 trailer tongue?


Expert Reply:

I have a solution for you, but since the center to center space of the mounting slots on the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller, 5 Inches # CE10401G measures 3 inches, the roller will not mount to your 3 inch wide trailer frame. There will not be enough room to attach the roller bracket to the frame.

Instead, I recommend using the CE Smith Spool Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers, 4 Inches # CE10400G. This roller's mounting slots are 2 inches apart on center, which will give you sufficient room to mount the roller on your trailer tongue.

For another option to fit around your boat trailer's 3 x 3 inch trailer tongue, you can use the CE Smith Keel Roller Assembly # CE32003G. This will provide you with a 5 inch black rubber roller, the same size as the roller in the # CE10401G. For a Keel Roller Assembly with an upgraded, yellow TPR roller, you will want # CE32013G. The Keel Roller will not require you to drill any holes in the tongue of your trailer. These mounting brackets sandwich around the trailer's tongue and attach with included 3/8" diameter bolts.

I have attached review videos of these product for you.
