1/2" deflection over an 18" area does not sound like too much as long as the hull has not cracked. My boats winter storage cradle has made 'dimples' in the hull that rebounded once back in the water.
Still difficult to say without a picture of the bottom where it is bending.
The trailer bunks should be below where there are internal bulkheads (walls, knee walls etc) in the cabin.
You could build another bunk for the bow section using 2"x lumber topped with carpet.
