towing supports for motor(s) while trailering

2016 twin 250 HO on 30' CC that while trailering tend to lay over to one side. I've looked for a support to keep and help motors straight. Any suggestions? need 2 for both motors? how do I use my discount? Thanks

Which model motors, G1 or G2?  Better  yet, what are the model numbers?

The V4 115 has a sturdy built in brace for trailering

An engine brace on the engine protects the hydraulic tilt unit from shock loads while trailering. A motor brace from the engine to the trailer protects the transom from shock loads as long as the boat is strapped down to the trailer.

Re: towing supports for motor(s) while trailering

One more question for the experts. I recently purchased a 15HO kicker. Is there an Evinrude brace for this engine?

The existing mechanical tilt stop is much less substantial than the 115HP engine.
