Plastic Boat Trailer Bunks Vs Carpet Bunks

When it comes to deciding whether to choose plastic boat trailer bunks or carpet bunks? It is important to understand the main differences when applying these products to your boat trailer.

For years, the boat trailer industry in the US has been limited and somewhat selfish when it comes to offering the end user the correct products when it comes to matching their boats with their trailers. Lets take a quick look at the main differences, advantages & disadvantages between carpet and plastic boat trailer bunks.

Carpet Boat Trailer Bunks

Carpet trailer bunks should really only be used for small fiberglass boats and hulls. With that said, carpet has traditionally been the only option for buyers in the USA for small medium and large sized boats in both aluminium and fiberglass boats. This is one of the main reason you will find carpet often rips and tears and timber can crack, split and rot if the correct product is not used. Carpet when used on aluminium is simply not designed for the boat that is resting on them. You may have noticed that 9 times out of 10 when ever you launch and retrieve your boat, you struggle at the ramp. Your boat is hard to push and pull on carpet and they do not slide at all (Or not very well).

Plastic Boat Trailer Bunks

Plastic trailer bunks are designed to fix all the problems carpet bunks give boat users when used with aluminium hulls. Plastic is naturally slippery so lubrication products are not required when it comes to launching and retrieving your boat off the trailer.

Unlike carpet bunks that often tear, rip and need constant replacement; plastic eliminates these issues. UV resistant, plastic boat trailer bunks have been designed to be used in all weather conditions and can be used with small medium and large sized boats.


Benefits of Plastic Boat Trailer Bunks with Bends
