Bunk Boards

These carpeted bunk boards provide hull support for your boat during transport and storage. Each 6-foot-long board is wrapped in weather-resistant, marine-grade black carpet. You can run the bunk boards front to back for traditionally shaped hulls or side to side for flat-bottom boats, kayaks and inflatables.


To attach the bunk boards to the front and rear crossmembers of your trailer frame, use existing brackets or a four-pack of swivel mounting brackets (CE10000G-4, CE10001G-4 or C10002G-4 - sold separately). These brackets allow you to install the bunk boards at different heights. In addition, they enable the bunk boards to tilt to accommodate and support boat hulls of different sizes.

First off, I want to say that the products that I ordered from etrailer.com were of high quality and were easy to install, and lets not forget about the fast shipping and my favorite - the personal touch added to the email communications where each one is signed by a human (rather than something generic). My project itself entailed replacing the two (original) vertical mount 4' bunks on my boat trailer (see the attached pictures). These were set-up to hold a 15' sailboat. I recently purchased a 12' (plastic) jon boat, and I felt that the jon boat needed better support on the trailer so that it didn't warp or dent. After doing a lot of research, I decided to go with two horizontal mount 6' bunks. They were pre-finished at a cost less than if I were to purchase the individual components (wood, glue, carpet, staples, etc.) and do the assembly work myself. Attaching the hardware and mounting them to the trailer was a snap - see the attached pictures for the finished setup.

Bought these for simplicity even though in my opinion they are overpriced for what they are. A pressure treated 2x4 and some exterior carpet or old fire hose (likely for free from fire station) will get it done cheaper. My complaint about these is etrailer's recommended brackets, which BARELY fit onto thexe 2x4 bunks. The mounting holes are very close to the outside edge of the bunks, and you are mounting them with very large lag screws (not included with these or the brackets).

As described, arrived well protected. I guess I was hoping these would be glued in place as well. I know that's not in the description. I've seen new PWC trailers where the carpet is glued down and it looked really nice. The carpet on these is fluffy and soft, and a good upgrade from the outdoor carpet I had covering mine. You'll want to drill holes for the lag screws that go into the brackets that hold these to the trailer. If you want a 1" deep hole, wrap electrical tape 1" from the tip of your drill bit and you'll stop at 1" each hole.

Still like new after a year, will buy again when needed but doesn’t look like I need them now

The carpeted bunk boards arrived a day early--which was nice, and appreciated. But, when I cut the plastic bands that held the two together, one was perfect and the other one was warped. It was not so bad that I could not use it, but none the less, it was (is) warped. With a slight modification to the support bracket I made it work----but it still would have been nice if they both would have been straight!



- CE27840
by:

Arrived as advertised. On the trailer now and functioning well. One concern: no carpet glue was used so carpet is only secured by the staples. It slides a little on the board, but does not appear to present a problem in normal use. Another concern: the wood underneath does not appear to be treated lumber. These are meant to be used in and out of the water, so hopefully they will last. Time will tell. Working well now.

Was putting off purchasing these to replace an old pair, take my advise and never wait. The ones I had didn’t look too bad but one gave out and the ski was resting in the trailer frame. The new bunks are a lot better quality than my old ones and we’re really easy to install. They arrived quickly too.

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • Recommended Bunk Board Replacement Options for Boat Trailer
    For your boat trailer, the length of bunks is dependent on the boat and the trailer, so I would be hesitant to change anything from the factory. It soulds like you have a couple of 2 foot bunk boards that need to be replaced and you can use the CE Smith Carpeted Johnboat Bunk Board for Boat Trailers - 2' Long - Qty 1 # CE27850 for the replacement. You can use shorter bunk boards in combination to reach your current lengths. Doing so will sometimes even increase the strength because...

  • Proper Trailer Bunk Board Length for 21 Foot Boat
    Two 12 foot long bunks boards will work well to support your 21 foot boat. Ideally, the bunk boards should be at least half as long as your boat and run from the stern (or a few inches beyond it) to the bow as far forward as you like. Due to shipping restrictions/cost on over-sized items, the longest bunk boards we carry are the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards # CE27845 which are 7 foot long. If you were looking to replace your bunk boards, one solution that is very budget friendly...

  • Are CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards Pressure Treated
    The CE Smith carpeted bunk boards we have available like the 6 Foot # CE27840 that you referenced are not pressure treated. They are made from untreated southern yellow pine. I confirmed this with my contact at CE Smith. They do feature marine-grade carpeting that is weather resistant.

  • Availability of 8 Feet Long Carpeted Bunks
    The longest bunk boards we carry are 6 feet in length like the part # CE27840. You could use two 4 feet bunks like the part # CE27810 to give you the 8 feet you need. For brackets you could use the part # CE10000G-4.

  • Determining Weight Capacity of Used Boat Trailer
    The most accurate capacity information on your trailer is going to come from what you found using its VIN. This should take into account what was installed at the factory for this particular trailer. It's possible that the used trailer you are looking at is slightly different or older than the more current models you are seeing online from the manufacturer. If the trailer itself calls for a maximum capacity of 4,000 pounds, this is what you should go by. I do not recommend going over...

  • What Should be Used to Attach Carpet to Bunk Boards
    When we installed the CE Smith Deluxe Marine-Grade Carpeting # CE11349 we used 9/16" long staples as you can see from the attached installation video. You can use the same size or a similar size if you already have some staples.

  • Availability of 9-1/2 Foot Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailer
    No worries, you can easily construct some bunks yourself. Go to your local lumberyard and get some treated yellow pine 2x4x10 boards. You can then purchase some of the marine-grade carpet we offer, like part # CE11372. You'll need one roll per bunk, which means you'll have some scrap left over, but if you're anything like me you'll find a use for the scrap. You can use carpet adhesive to attach the carpet to the bunks, but two years ago when I re-did the bunks on my PWC trailer I...

  • How to Covert my Roller Bunks to Wooden Bunks on my Boat Trailer
    This is a very easy process! If you already have rollers simply measure them and choose bunks similar to CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers part # CE27840 that most closely match. They will then attach to the same attachment point that the rollers used typically a bracket either welded or bolted to the trailer. There will be no issues of adjusting as these will be in the same position the rollers were. When I install these I use short 3/4" lag bolts through the bracket into...

  • Bracket Recommendation for Installing Carpet Bunks on a Boat Trailer
    For the carpeted bunks part # CE27840 that are in the review video that I attached the easiest way to install them would be to use the swivel brackets part # CE10000G-4 which I attached a review video of as well. I also attached a picture that shows the bunk and the bracket attached to a trailer frame. For a set of 4 u-bolts to attach the brackets you would want the part # CE15283GA-4.

  • Choosing Carpeted Boat Trailer Bunks vs. Roller Bunks
    You will want to choose carpeted boat trailer bunks to more or less match the hull profile of your boat. By this I mean that if the bow end of the hull had a steep upward slope so that only about 12-feet of the boat's total 16-foot length would be resting on the bunks then you should be fine using two 6-foot bunks # CE27840 per side. If you are replacing original bunks I would stick with the size supplied originally by the trailer maker. You might google search the trailer model to see...

  • Recommendation for 10 Foot Long Carpeted Bunk Boards for a Bass Boat Trailer
    I have a couple of options for you to add 10 foot long carpeted bunk boards to your trailer. First, you could use 2 sets of the 5 foot long boards, # CE27820. The other option is to get 10 foot boards locally and staple on some carpet yourself. We have different carpet options depending on what size and color you want and I have included a link to them for you.

  • Bunk Boards and Brackets That Allow for Angle Adjustment
    To adjust the angle of the bunk boards such as the 6' # CE27840, 5' # CE27820 or 4' # CE27810 you can simply use the Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 which attach with U-Bolt Assembly # CE15283GA-4. The swivel brackets allow the bunk boards to tilt so they can accommodate boat hulls of different sizes.

  • How Long Does Bunk Carpet Last, Does CE Smith Carpeted Bunks Use Treated Wood
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and the wood in the Carpeted Bunk Boards # CE27840 is a non-treated wood. The carpet though is marine grade carpeting. Typically bunk carpet will last a few years, but that really depends on how often its used. I've read that you can prolong the life of the carpet if you apply liquid car wax to the carpet a couple times a season. If you do this you will need to wait till the trailer is in the water before you disconnect it from the trailer. The...

  • Bunk Options for a Magic Tilt Boat Trailer
    I wasn't able to find bunk information for your trailer, but we have several options for replacement bunks for a boat trailer. For wooden bunks we have products like the part # CE27840 which are 6 foot long carpeted bunks. For brackets you could use the part # CE10000G-4. For roller bunks we have the # DL21741 which is a 5 foot long section of roller bunk. For a mounting bracket the part # DL21742 would work great.

  • Does Boat Have to Be Off Trailer to Install New Boat Bunk Boards
    Boat trailer bunk boards like CE Smith # CE27840 can be secured to swivel brackets like # CE10000G-4 using either galvanized or stainless steel hardware intended for wood. This is not included so you will source the preferred hardware locally. Lag bolts/screws would be great to secure the bunks to the brackets (as long as they are short enough to not come through the bunk). Obviously the boat would have to be off the trailer to be able to install the bunks like you mentioned so you...

  • How Long of Bunks for a 12 Foot Long Porta Boat
    The general rule of thumb is that you want your bunks to extend completely to the stern (rear) of the boat, or even and inch or two beyond. That way the transom has plenty of support as you drive down the road. The bunks can extend as far forward as you like really, but I think you'll find that about half the length of the boat is usually enough as the front of the boat is generally supported by the bow stop on the trailer. For a 12 foot boat like your Porta Boat I would go with 6 foot...

  • How Long Should Trailer Bunks be on Pontoon Boat Trailer
    There isn't an exact length of bunk boards that are required for pontoon boat bunks but in general around 75 percent of the length of the boat should be the length of the pontoons and you'll be good. So for a pontoon boat that measures 16 feet your best bunk length would be right at 12 feet.

  • How To Replace 18 Foot Long Bunk Boards On a Pontoon Boat Trailer
    I think the best option for your pontoon boat trailer would be to break the 18' long bunk boards down into three sections which then leaves 6' for each section. The shorter each board is, the more support you will have to a degree which is why I recommend this route. If one of them breaks you will only need to replace a small section as well. The CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers part # CE27840 is what I recommend because they are made of treated wood and have the carpet already...

  • Installation of CE Smith Boat Trailer Bunk Boards CE27840 and Swivel Brackets CE10000G-4
    Boat trailer bunk boards like CE Smith # CE27840 can be secured to swivel brackets like # CE10000G-4 using either galvanized or stainless steel hardware intended for wood. This is not included so you will source the preferred hardware locally. Drilling pilot holes should not be necessary; you should be able to directly install the screws that mount the brackets.

  • Do the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards Come Pre-Drilled for Installation
    The carpeted bunk boards, # CE27840, come without any holes drilled so you would need to drill to attach brackets and/or directly to the trailer. The reason they are not pre-drilled is because different trailers have different mounting location requirements and CE Smith would not be able to pre-drill for every application. You can use the bolster brackets # CE10000G-4 to mount these bunk boards.

  • Does it Matter Which Side of the Crossmember the Boat Bunk Brackets Install On
    It doesn't really matter which side of the crossmember of the trailer frame the bunk brackets install on. As long as they are torqued down properly either way will be perfectly safe. Since the brackets have swivels like # CE10003G-4 there would be no need to cut the boards at a different angle.

  • What Is The Recommended Bunk Board Length For 16' Long Boat?
    Ideally you want bunk boards that are at least 50% of the length of your boat, and want the to run from the stern and as far forward as you like. Since your boat is 16' Long you will want at least 8' of bunk boards, but I recommend going with two of the 5' Bunk Boards # CE27820 on each side of the trailer. You will need two sets of the mounting brackets # CE10000G-4, and will also need U-bolts to attach the brackets to your trailer. If you can tell me the size of your frame I would...
