2003 GS 201 - Need new trailer

I need a new trailer for my GS 201...  any suggestions on what kind to go with, roller or non roller kind?

single or dual axel?

I currently have a single axel galvanized roller trailer but it really it tough to tow.

I am towing with a Ford Explorer V8 and it still really drags on the truck.

    My dealer recommended a Load Rite single axle, roller trailer with brakes. Model 21360096rtb. I have 1999 201, I think its pretty much the same as your boat.

    You can pull it on a single axle trailer if the trailer is rated for the weight of this boat.

    I'm a fan of bunks vs rollers but its the 'Coke vs Pepsi' discussion.  If you're using it in salt water, my guess is the bunks are easier/less maintenance.

    I have a trailmaster single axle on my SS188 which is pretty much equivalent in size/weight.  SC2040BR.
