This works for power boats 16 to 20 feet long and sailboats 20 to 28 feet long. You must also measure your cross beams to ensure that the slotted mounting brackets will fit between 1.96 to 2.57 of an inch.

Review from a similar Ezi-Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


Sold to fit up to 2.57 cross member and the ubolts supplied will not fit up to 2.57 inches. So they are useless. I've sent a message and have not heard back yet. Doesn't make sense at all.


Comments
I have sent this information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you.

These make putting your boat on the trailer easy it centres the boat in waves or current even when the back of the boat is drifting to the side by going forward it forces the boat to centre either using the motor or crank to pull or push boat onto trailer love it after missing the centre rollers a few times before I do it by myself easily

Review from a similar Ezi-Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


Product says it will fit up to 2.57" cross beams. My cross beam is 2.25" so I purchased the guides. When they arrived, the very first line of the instructions tell you that the u-bolts provided with the guides are not wide enough or long enough to fit my trailer. I contacted customer service and asked about getting the correct u-bolts and was told that they do not sell the size I need and I would have to source them locally.
A quick search of their web site shows that they do carry the bolts in the size required. When I pointed this out in an e-mail along with the part # I heard nothing back. This is not an inexpensive product and should be shipped with the correct bolts to fit the cross beams that the product is made for. Nowhere in the product description does it tell you that the bolts provided will not fit the larger beams.
Customer service knows the bolts are not cheap and add significantly to the overall cost of the product. They could easily provide a choice of u-bolts in the product description to choose from.

See what our Experts say about this Ark Boat Trailer Parts

  • Are Rollers of Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR Spring Loaded
    Yes the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR does have rollers that are spring loaded. If you check out the picture I attached you can see the spring behind the roller and the hinge mechanism. It's a pretty stiff spring but nothing too crazy. Your boat would have no issue folding it flat. For more info on these check out the review video I attached as well.

  • Boat Guide Solution for Front of Fishing Boat When Loading on Trailer
    The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR that you referenced would be a great option for helping align the front of your boat and prevent the scratches you mentioned. This specific model was designed for 16 to 20 foot long boats so your 19 foot fishing boat would work well in that regard as well.

  • Where At On the Trailer Is the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System Installed
    The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System part # AR74FR is designed to be installed at the rear of the trailer as that is how it will be most effective in centering the boat on the trailer. That said, there are no stipulations or limitations for installing the guides further up if you can find a way to fit them and they will work for your application.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Why Do Ark Ezi-Guides Use Boat Length Ranges for Application
    Length of boat typically correlates with the weight of the boat more than any other figure and it's pretty easy to determine length so that is why the Ark Ezi-Guides Self Aligning System part # AR64FR has a length range listed. This one is for 14 to 16 foot long boats, the part # AR74FR is for 16 to 20 foot boats, and # AR84FR is for 20 foot to 28 foot boats.

  • Difference Between Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading Systems
    That's a good question, so I reached out to Ark regarding the differences between the three systems, and you were on the money that the difference is the strength of the springs. Otherwise, the physical size and rollers on the guides are the same. So the stronger springs can handle a longer (and thus heavier) boat: - 14' to 16' Long Power Boat: Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR64FR - 16' to 20' Long Power Boat: Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading...

  • Best Self Aligning Boat Loading System for 20 Foot Cobalt Boat
    The CE Smith # CE27610 Guide-Ons work well on the back of the boat, but in quick moving water something that's actually self-adjusting like the ARK # AR74FR self-aligning boat trailer loading system which is spring loaded would actively guide your boat to the center of the trailer and would be a better choice. This unit is designed for boats 16-20 feet long, so it'd work perfect for your Cobalt. I've linked you to a product description video featuring the loading system.

  • Guide Posts That Match The Angle Of The Sides Of My Boat
    I would not recommend bending the brackets on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27637. These are really designed more as a visual reference for loading your boat. The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR are more of the type of guides that you are looking for. These rubber rollers will help to center your boat on your trailer and roll smoothly into place. These can be used with the CE Smith Posts to load your boat onto the trailer.

  • Ark Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Ezi-Guides # AR74FR Roller Lengths
    The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR has an overall length of 15" with both rollers and brackets. The Long Roller is 12" in length and the end roller is 2" in length. For a 24" roller you would need to have some custom made brackets, roller shafts and use 2 Yates Side Guide Rollers # YR12243-5.

  • Recommended Boat Trailer Parts to Ease Loading in Rough Water and Sand
    For your application I recommend installing roller bunks as well as some guide-ons to help make loading your boat MUCH easier with your conditions. The Caliber Marine Teflon Slides look like they would help to make loading/unloading the boat easier, but not near as easy as it is with the rollers. For the roller bunks we have a selection to choose from and it really just depends on where you plan on installing the rollers. You can piece 2 together for longer boards. From Dutton Lainson...
