  • How to Determine U-Bolts and Fasteners Needed to Install SE Smith Bunk Boards and Brackets
  • So the U-Bolt will secure the CE Smith Light Duty, Vertical Bunk Bracket # CE10603G with the ends pointing towards the back of the trailer. If you look at the picture you took it looks like those fasteners holding your current brackets could be U-Bolts in this orientation. I'm not sure what your frame size is but I'm linking our list of U-Bolts that you can check out if your current hardware is in need of replacing. When it comes to attaching your Bunk Boards # CE27845 to these brackets...

  • 60 Inch or 24 Inch Bunk Guides for Boat Trailer
  • Since you mentioned wanting the most stability and not always being perfect when loading (understandably), I think the longer, 5 foot (60 inch) CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27600 is the best option as it will give you the most stability and assistance in guiding your boat all the way on your trailer. The 2 foot (24 inch) CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27660 are certainly not something that will be inadequate, but the longer guide-ons are really...

  • Recommended Roller Bunks Replacement for Wooden Bunks for G3 1860 Boat
  • We do have a variety of roller bunks that can be used as a direct replacement for carpeted bunks. I recommend either going with the 2,500 lb capacity which comes in Black # DL21754 or Silver # DL21740, OR the 3,000 lb capacity which also comes in Black # DL21755 or Silver # DL21741. I have also attached a link to all of the options that you can check out, as well as a link to all of our brackets if they also need replacing.

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Come In Galvanized Version
  • Yes, the galvanized Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk - 5' Long Sections part # DL21741 is what you are looking for. The rollers are constructed of 12-gauge, galvanized steel and have zinc-plated steel rollers hardware included. This is considered an upgraded version of the standard Dutton-Lainson roller bank because it includes 12 sets of 3 rollers compared to the 2 rollers.

  • Can Ark Eai-Guides be Installed at Front of Trailer
  • While we haven't had a chance yet (May 2020) to install the Ark Eai-Guides, parts # AR64FR, # AR74FR, and # AR84FR, the beauty of boat trailers is that you can pretty much install rollers wherever you see fit. For now the rollers are only available in this blue color.

  • Boat Keel Is Cutting Keel Roller When Launching Boat
  • It does look like the weight of the boat may be too much for the keel rollers that you are using from the photo which is why the keel is digging into the roller. You could replace the rubber keel rollers with plastic like CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29516 if your bracket is 5" wide with a 5/8" diameter shaft. The plastic construction will do a better job at supporting the keel. Ideally the trailer would have another cross member to add another keel bracket assembly and...

  • Is the Installation of the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System Easy or Hard?
  • The installation process of the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System -part # AR84FR is very easy and can be done by you easily. It will use u bolts to wrap around the trailer frame and you will then tighten them down with either a 9/16" or 5/8" socket. Not 100% sure but I think it is the 9/16". The only issue with installation will be the boat needing to not be on the trailer when you do it. As for the size you want the only thing that changes is the spring tension...

  • Replacement Roller Assembly for Deep-V Style Boat Trailer
  • If you just want to replace the roller assembly you have now then the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10401G is what I recommend. However, if you are having trouble aligning with the roller then you might want to consider a larger roller assembly like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10403G which is 8" wide. These options will both work great with your deep v style hull. In order to attach either option you can reuse the mounting hardware that you have now.

  • Can Carpeted Bunks Replace Roller Bunks on Boat Trailer to Make for Easier Launch
  • Roller bunks will make what you are trying to do incredibly easy as the boat will basically want to roll off on it's own and not require you to push it off. So without knowing what length your bunks are overall you have a few options to get the best length setup. You could use a combination of 5 foot sections like part # DL21741 and 4 foot sections like part # DL21740 to get the best length possible. These even could bolt directly to your carpeted bunks for an easier install. Or we...

  • What Fasteners Should Be Used To Attach the CE Smith Crossmember Pad
  • I do have an option for you but the cross member in your attached photo appears to be made of steel tubing which means there would be no access inside to attach a rivet for the CE Smith Crossmember Pad part # CE16870. That said, there are plenty of other fasteners you can use to attach these. I recommend standard self-tapping screws like part # FA1131822 as this will be easiest.

These can be mounted on top of carpeted or wooden bunks as well as with brackets like the part # DL21742. I have attached a few photos of how these have been installed on different boat trailers that you can reference.

  • Available Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
  • There is no one set correct length of guide-ons for a particular boat since the length you need can vary depending on the pitch of the boat ramp and how much of the trailer ends up submerged. The design of the trailer itself also matters since this affects where they can mount. You may also have a preference for a longer or shorter set or for one type or another, such as a roller style like # CE27610 or # FBGR200101 or a post-style like # CE27648. You can see all guide-ons we offer...

  • How Much Clearance is Needed From Boat for Roller-Style Guide-Ons
  • You don't need much clearance at all, maybe a few inches for the CE Smith Roller-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27610. You can mount these at different widths to ensure you have a good distance from your boat while still being close enough to allow the guide-ons to help you when you are loading the boat on your trailer. These guide-ons fit frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall, but if your frame is up to 3" wide x 5-1/4" tall you you will need the CE Smith Extra-Long U-Bolt Kit for...

  • Can I Use Roller Bunks and Carpeted Bunk Boards Together on Boat Trailer
  • I'll start off by saying that I've seen quite a few boat trailers that use a combination of rollers like the CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers - 6 Rollers Each - 5' Long - 1,500 lbs - 1 Pair # CE27710 and a carpeted bunk like the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers - 7' Long - 1 Pair # CE27845. The rollers definitely help if you're on a lot of shallow or steep boat ramps and combining the two gives you the best of both worlds, with the rollers on the bottom and boards...

  • 60 Inch Guide Ons for Boat Trailer With Rectangular Tube Frame
  • The # CE27648 Guide Ons you'd looked at are designed for I-beam trailer frame members, from the photo you provided, it looks like your frame members are a simple boxed in rectangular tube. If that's the case, and the frame members aren't more than 3 inches wide and 4-1/4 inches tall, I'd recommend the # CE27640. These guide ons are exactly the same, but the mounts are designed for a tubular or C-channel frame like you show in the photo. You can see how the guide-ons are installed in the...

  • Can the Dutton-Lainson Bunk Board Bracket DL21762 Rotate to Match Hull Angle
  • I apologize for all of the confusion. I can tell you with absolute certainty that the Dutton-Lainson Roller Bunk Bracket, # DL21762, will pivot to allow the roller bunk to conform to the angle of the boat or watersport vehicle's hull. The hook piece at the top of the bracket will pivot at the rivet that holds the hook to the mounting bracket. The hook is not easy to rotate because it is designed to have enough tension to hold itself in place once you set it to your desired angle, but a...

  • Will the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons Work On a Tandem Axle Boat Trailer
  • I am not sure I totally understand what you are asking but the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27600 comes with two 5' long bunk boards as well as the brackets needed to attach them. These bunk boards will only require two support posts per side. In order to mount them over your fenders you will need to make sure you have the appropriate space. The two brackets will sit pretty much right at 60" apart. If you want to use the same size to replace your bunk boards...

  • Why are CE Smith 60 Guide-On Kits Priced Differently
  • Part of the difference in price is based on supply-and-demand, competitive pricing, and our price from the manufacturer. Although these have the same dimensions for the Guide-Ons both kits use different mounting techniques. The part # CE27640 uses U-Bolts which fit frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" (can be upgraded up to 5-1/4" tall frames with U-Bolt Kit # CE11416) while the part # CE27648 uses I-Beam clamps instead which are compatible with frames up to 4" wide.

  • Options to Replace Calkins Double Roller Assembly on Boat Trailer
  • We do have similar replacement keel rollers to what you currently have, such as the Yates # YR800B, however we don't have any double roller brackets like your existing Calkins model. Since they are no longer in business your only option is likely to replace them with an entirely new setup. This particular Yates unit measures 7-3/4 inches long and is designed for use with a 5/8 inch shaft like # CE10725A. You may be able to connect this directly to the 2-hole bracket on your trailer...

This is the strongest keel roller they offer. My contact at Yates tells me that the first thing to bend would be the roller shaft, and a 5/8 inch diameter shaft like what I referred to above wouldn't begin bending until around the 2000 lb mark. It's recommended to install more than one...

  • Can I Use the CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller on my Trailer
  • I may have a solution for you, but it doesn't look like your trailer has any bracket in place in order to use the CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29505 on your boat trailer. For that reason you would first need to have a roller bracket like the CE Smith Panel Bracket for 12" Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10305G welded to the frame or attached with U-bolts to match your trailer frame size. If you went the welded on route, the # CE10305G is galvanized steel...

You will have 6 bunk boards and I've linked the page to the options for you. If you don't need a certain height, then the CE Smith V-Wing Bolster Bracket for Pontoon...

  • Will CE Smith Y-Style Bow Stop Work as Replacement for Roller With 1/2" Shaft
  • Since the diameter of the shaft is the same at 1/2" you can use the 4-1/4" Span CE Smith Y-Style Bow Stop for Boat Trailers # CE29554. We do have another option that is wider, and though it isn't amber, it is yellow, which is the 6-1/2" Span Yates Y-Style Bow Stop for Boat Trailers # YR333Y.

  • Recommended Replacement Bunk Brackets for Escort Bunk Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, but we don't have any of the bunk brackets that are exactly the same as the ones you're replacing. Instead, you can use the CE Smith # CE10000G you were looking at to replace the bunk brackets on your current trailer. These are swiveling brackets, so the angle of the bunk boards will be able to be adjusted to match your current setup. In order to mount these bunk brackets you'll want to use U-Bolts like the CE Smith U-Bolt - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16"...

I would stick with the same type of roller for the front and rear of the boat trailer.

  • Proper Trailer Bunk Board Length for 21 Foot Boat
  • Two 12 foot long bunks boards will work well to support your 21 foot boat. Ideally, the bunk boards should be at least half as long as your boat and run from the stern (or a few inches beyond it) to the bow as far forward as you like. Due to shipping restrictions/cost on over-sized items, the longest bunk boards we carry are the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards # CE27845 which are 7 foot long. If you were looking to replace your bunk boards, one solution that is very budget friendly...

The fender is a bit harder for me to confirm without measuring.

  • Normally you'd install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27640 behind the rear fender and there would be enough room there for it to fit easily since the rear fender doesn't typically run all the way to the rear of the trailer. I looked up the trailer setup of your 2010 Tahoe Q5i and found that the fender behind the rear axle does extend pretty far but it does not go all the way back and there would still be enough of the frame available for it to attach to.
