Roller furling main is just like your furling head sail...most likely, it will be on the boom, so what you will see is a big U, that houses your normal size boom, this boom will rotate 360 degree, therefore gathering and reducing the size of the sail the more you haul in. Or, it could be on the vert. plain, and same furl method as a head sail. If I were to charter a boat, it would be all chain...And this you will not now until you get there.
