The back end of my enclosed drags sometimes. I've seen trailers with roller on the back to prevent damage. Where can I find these? Where they homemade?

Thanks...

the only one's i have seen are for tow bar' made buy blue ox ,but they would be easy to make .depending on how heavy the trailer is make it out of schedule 80 pipe with either some bearing on each end or just run 3/4 hot rolled steel rod through it with cap's on each end for the bearing surface .
1/4 x2 angle to mount to the trailer and some short plate's on each end to connect them together . :)

If I'm going to make it or have it made, I would probably just have a piece welded along the back like a skid plate. I wanted to check the prices on the rollers before I had a local shop weld a piece on for me.

I guess the rollers probably have to be welded on anyways. I tried bolting a piece on and the bolts just snap.
