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

Ultra High Plas­tic boat trail­er bunks are designed with a spe­cial­ly craft­ed bend that not only looks excep­tion­al but helps the user to lift their boat back onto their trail­er in low lieing water.

By adding extra lever­age to the retrieval process, you help elim­i­nate the risk of injury and can retrieve your boat much easier!

  • Ultra High plas­tic boat trail­er bunks are man­u­fac­tured using pre­mi­um vir­gin mate­ri­als. Unlike some; we do NOT use recy­cled plas­tic in our trail­er profiles!
  • Plas­tic trail­er bunks are designed to out­last oth­er mate­ri­als such as car­pet, tim­ber, PVC and recy­cled plas­tic slides. 
  • Ultra High boat trail­er bunks are UV resis­tant. Ide­al for use in all weath­er conditions!
  • Slip­pery by design! No lubri­ca­tion prod­ucts are need­ed to make your boat slide. (Warn­ing: Do NOT unhook your winch until your boat is safe in the water. Your boat will slide off your trailer!)
  • Launch & retrieve your boat in all water con­di­tions. With the added ben­e­fit of the bend, you can retrieve your boat in shal­low waters. The bend helps lift your boat back onto your trail­er in tough conditions.
