Video Transcript for Review of Ark Boat Trailer Parts - Guides - AR84FR

Today we're going to take a look at the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System. Now, this self-aligning boat loading system will ensure that you're able to safely and easily guide your boat to the center of your trailer despite any strong winds, current or rough water conditions. These Ezi-Guides help you avoid loading the boat off the rollers and possibly damaging it, and these guides are designed to install at the rear of your boat trailer and allows you to guide the boat onto the center of your trailer without any help.They do use the U-bolt easy mount system that eliminates the need for power tools and drilling. It does include all the mounting hardware, the U-bolts right here that you install it with. These slotting mounted brackets here are designed to fit cross beams from 1.96 inches up to 2.57 inches, and as I mentioned, the four U-bolts are all included.If you notice the part here has a nice rust-resistant Dacromet finish to it to hold up, and it is designed to work with power boats with a length of 20 feet up to 28 feet. But that should do it for the review on the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System..

These guides make loading my 25' boat much easier!




by:

my order was delivered quicker them the delivery date .I have not installed the rollers yet but they are very good quality ...




by:

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.

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.

Review from a similar Ezi-Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


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


Did not work for my application.


Comments
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.

  • Do Ark Ezi-Guides Actually Work Well
    I don't have a video I can share with you, so the attached photos are the best I can do to hopefully give you an better idea of how the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System - 20' to 28' Long Power Boat # AR84FR work. The self aligning system actually works really well, so even if you're out on the water by yourself, or happen to get less than perfect weather conditions, like strong crosswinds, that can make loading your boat on the trailer super difficult, as soon as...

    As you can see in the provided photo, the rollers featured on the # AR84FR Ezi-Guide is indeed spring loaded. Once the boat hull rolls over them, they'll move to accommodate the shape of the hull. I've linked you to a product description video featuing the Ezi-Guide system.

  • Can Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System be Used at Front of Trailer
    Sure they can; there's no reason you can't install the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR84FR to the front of your trailer if you like. So long as you have the 1.96" to 2.57" cross beam to mount the U-bolts you can install these at the front of your trailer. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR84FR.

  • Will Ark Ezi-Guides Work With Semi-V Bottom Boat?
    They sure will! The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System - 20' to 28' Long Power Boat # AR84FR will work perfectly with a semi-v bottom boat, as the spring loaded guide will match the contour of your boat and help keep it aligned while loading the boat. These will also be very easy to install, though you will need to make sure the crossmembers on your boat are between 1.96" - 2.57". I included a video review of the # AR84FR for you to take a look at.

  • Dimensions of U-Bolts & Brackets of Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System AR84FR
    I reached out to the manufacturer, Ark, and there is not a weight capacity for the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR84FR. Instead, they said it was simply rated for boats that range from 20' to 28' long. As for the dimensions of the # AR84FR, they told me the U-bolt size is 1-15/16" x 7/16" and the bolt on bracket is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" with an overall length of 16-1/2".

  • 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...

  • Recommended Boat Guides For 22 Boat and Trailer Frame That is Narrow
    I recommend the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR84FR for your 22' boat. These mount to the rear cross bar that is 1.96" to 2.57" and are spring loaded to push your boat to the center of your trailer. Since these mount on the rear cross bar they do not need to stick out on the sides of the trailer and are less likely to become damaged than those that stick out.

  • 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...
