Advantages of Roller Bunks for Boat Trailer Compared to Carpeted Wooden Bunks


I have a 1992 astro 185 bassboat that need the bunks replaceed. Which would be the best to purchase and what size? Currently have bunk.


Expert Reply:

We offer carpeted bunk boards in several lengths that you can see on the linked page. And we also offer roller bunks, shown on the other link, that can be installed right on top of the wooden bunks if you like (or on their own) to substantially reduce your rolling friction for easier loading and unloading. Roller bunks like # DL21741 will make life easier on your winch by eliminating most of the friction between the hull and trailer. Your winch will last a lot longer if you use roller bunks and it will take less time to load and unload the boat.

You will want to use new carpeted or roller bunks of the same length as those currently on the trailer.
