Default Bunk style vs roller guideons - Suggestions or Advice needed

Looking to add some guideons to my shorelandr trailer for my 18 ft lund. Does anybody have thoughts on bunk style vs roller guideons. One thought I had would be that i could add some LED lights on the top of the roller guideons for night landing.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

If it's hand launched like Quincy, I'd say rollers are a must. But since its a bigger boat, bunks for sure.

Sealed LED trailer lights along with the tail lights on my truck is enough light for me to get my boat loaded in the dark. I don't care for guide ons because of the scratches they cause. If your trailer is placed with enough of the bottom bunks exposed out of the water (I leave about 1/3 out on my 18' Lund) they hold and center the boat just fine.

Bunks. IMO the bunks hold the boat snug and are just easier to load on - especially if you're solo!

I've always heard that roller bunks can damage your hull. One thing you might look into-they make trailer glide slicks that go on top of the bunks and minimize friction.
