Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket Installation

Today on our boat trailer we're going to review and install the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket part number DL21742; this is applicable in conjunction with both 4 and 5 foot Dutton-Lainson Roller Bunks part number DL21740 and part number DL21741. To begin our install we're going to remove the old or manufacture's boards and brackets. Since we're removing the bunk boards and brackets we just going to take the u-bolts off the frame. Quick check tip, before you remove your board take a tape measure and get the height of your board. That way when you install your new brackets and rollers you can set it back to the same height. Now that we have the boards lose we'll go ahead and just take them off the trailer and set them aside as they will not be reinstalled. Now for our new rollers we're going to have the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks part number DL21741. Now for our new Rollers we're going to install a new bracket to secure it to the trailer.

We're just going to reuse the old manufacturer's u-bolt. Once I have it set in place I'm going to go ahead and tighten it down. Note, for additional security we could add a second set of u-bolts here on the other side. Now here at the center support we're going to have 2 5 foot rollers come in together; we'll need 2 brackets. Both getting attached to the same spot; to do that we'll bring in a u-bolt from each side. This will secure our brackets.

Now I've got my first one in place, the back side here of the center support. We'll get our second u-bolt and support bracket. Now that all our hardware is in place we'll make sure she's in position and then tighten down the u-bolts. Keep in mind when tightening down your u-bolts make sure you tighten them down evenly. Now once we have the center support done we'll go ahead and install our last bracket here at the very end.

It will be the same process for the very first bracket. Now with all our brackets secured we'll go ahead and put our bunk rollers in place. Starting here at the rear set of bunk rollers we'll set it onto the brackets first. Not supplied with the install kit you'll need to add a bolt or bolt and washer for this application that'll go down through your bunk roller then through the bracket. Underneath I'm going to add a flat washer and nut. It's recommended to use nylon lock nuts; this will help prevent the hardware from loosening.

Let's go ahead and install it finger tight this time. Now we got our attachment point in place we'll go ahead and the same process here for the rear attachment point. Next, we're going to install our front bunk and rollers. It'll sit here on our forward and second bracket but because of how close we are oriented to the rear bunk we going to remove the rear set of rollers and we'll need to drill out our attachment point so that we can secure it to the bracket. Let's start with removing the rollers. Using a couple of 3/4 inch sockets we can simply just go ahead and remove the bolt that holds the rollers in place. I'm just going to slide the rollers back onto my bolt, thread that nut back on; that'll hold them together while I set them aside. Now I'll go ahead and put our front bunk in place. Set it in position on the bracket and mark the hole. Now we'll take our bunk back off, we turn it over and drill out the hole. To drill out the hole I'm going to use this small poly bit and then open it up to my final size using the step bit process. We now ready to go ahead and put the bunk back in place, drop in our hardware and secure it. Now with all our hardware in place we'll go ahead and tighten down all our fasteners. Now with one side done we'll do ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. Just like that we've completed the install of the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket part number DL21742 on our boat trailer.

Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket for Dutton-Lainson Roller Bunks


5 Ft roller bunk Part DL21741 is a high quality item. It installed in minutes on existing brackets. Boat is approx 3/4” higher than on standard bunks but it shouldn’t be a problem since it rolls on/off effortlessly. I also bought new brackets Part DL21742 thinking they might allow lowering boat a little but they were same as existing brackets so I returned them which was simple. Customer service was excellent.


Poor design lifts rollers 2 inches higher than 2x4 bunks. Modified everything and had to throw away u bolts


Due to a mix up in shipping....nobody's fault really, another type of bracket was required. The exchange was done without a hassle and the proper part is ready for installation. The product is better than expected but the customer service exceeded any I have ever dealt with anywhere!

Austin C.


Have had these installed and used for a year now....boat loads and launches with ease. Could have saved to much time and more ulcers and stress!!


The brackets are as described but unfortunately given my trailer frame I couldn't mount my roller bunks any lower than the standard bunks. The lowest you can get these brackets is probably almost 4 inches above the frame, then you have to bolt the roller bunks on top of that.


To keep the same height as the old boards, the backets would need cut and possibly welded to the frame. I raised the bracket just high enough to install the U-bolts. Now, the rollers will not till as designed. Shouldn't hinder loading and unloading but I will see first time out


Had to drill out the rivet and replace it with a bolt/lock nut for a aluminum older boat to fit correct.


used 5 & 4 ft. Deluxe roller bunks. on boat trailer, easy install and boat rolls off trailer very easily. Great product!! Boat is much easier to launch and load.


I purchased these about a year ago and again just a few days ago. Used these on a boat I sold and then just bought 4 to set up my buddies boat with roller bunks. Very strong and sturdy bracket, works with the roller bunks great.


I used these brackets with the roller bunks and they made installation a breeze paired with the recommended u-bolts. The system literally went together in less than an hour with minor modifications I opted to make. I cannot wait to pick up my new boat and put them to the test.


Used these as part of a full boat trailer rebuild. They were sized perfectly and of very high quality. After a year of use these are performing excellently.


The brackets for the roller bunks worked out just fine.


Great item, great/fast service! I will remember your site for any future trailer repairs - thanks!


I have always been impressed with the quality and timeliness of delivery from etrailer.


Great product and easy to install, supports roller bunks perfectly


made mounting easy


Product was of excellent quality, Very easy to install, and worked most excellent.

  • Rollers to Carry Raft on Modified Trailer
    The way the Ladder Roller for Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Crossbars # RR1500 works is that the top bracket mounts into the t-tracks of your bars and roller is on the side. That means they can't be flipped upwards since there are no t-tracks on the side of the bar that they can clamp onto if the bar was mounted traditionally like it would be on a roof rack. If you're modifying a boat trailer though, you might be interested in Boat Trailer Standard Roller Bunks # DL21755. These can attach to mounting...

  • Roller Bunks for a 1998 19ft. Carolina Skiff Boat Trailer
    You should not have any problems using 2 sets of the Deluxe Roller Bunks end to end on the bunks on your trailer. I checked out some photos of the 19 foot Carolina Skiffs online and found that the bunks are normally made from what looks like 2x4 lumber laid flat. This means that the original bunks would be about 3-1/2 inches wide, and the roller bunks, # DL21741, are 4-5/8 inches wide overall, see attached photo, so they will support the boat on a wider portion of the hull. Rollers are...

  • How to Install Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk # DL21741 Using Roller Bunk Bracket # DL21742
    You can simply mount the Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk, part # DL21741, by just screwing or bolting it in. The mounting brackets, Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket, part # DL21742, are optional in mounting part # DL21741, and are not required. If you remove your old bunks and installed part # DL21741, the brackets would be needed to attach to the bottom of the bunk where the holes are and there would be no drilling required. This way the bunks would be adjustable to change the height. If...

  • Bunk Boards or Roller Bunks and Brackets for Boat Trailer and 26 Cuddy Cabin Boat
    I don't believe there is a style of trailer called a low-tide trailer. Most of what you find on an internet search of that term is a broken boat trailer, so the gentleman may have been telling him his trailer was broken or soon to be broken. I've never seen bunk boards resting directly on the frame, so I recommend getting some bunk brackets. I recommend the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies - Galvanized Steel - 13" - Qty 4 # CE10002G-4 along with the CE Smith U-Bolts -...

  • Do the Dutton Lainson Roller Bunk Brackets Include Mounting Hardware
    The Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket # DL21742 that you referenced is not sold with any mounting hardware. You will need to provide the hardware needed to install these brackets plus bunks like the 5 foot Roller Bunks part # DL21741 to your trailer.

  • How to Attach Roller Bunks # DL21741 to 6 Ft Wooden Bunks on a Boat Trailer
    You are correct, you can mount the Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks, item # DL21741, directly to the top of your existing wooden bunks. If mounted in this fashion you would not need any brackets. I would recommend stainless steel mounting screws, available at a local hardware store, to attach the roller bunks to your wooden bunks. If you wanted to remove the wooden bunks, you would need to use the Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Brackets, item # DL21742, to install the roller bunks on. I would...

These roller bunks can be attached directly to a flat surface or you can use bracket # DL21742 (4 needed per set). We also have carpeted bunks, 4 feet long, all ready to be installed, # CE27810. Carpeted bunks have more resistance though than rollers. To mount these you can use bracket set # CE10000G-4 per bunk...

  • How to Install Roller Bunks on a Boat Trailer with Out Perpendicular Cross Beams

    It sounds like you are looking for a replacement roller for a set of roller bunks.

  • Recommended Boat Bunks for a Continental Boat Trailer Carrying a 22 Foot HydroSport
    Yes, in addition to 2 x 4 bunk boards like # CE27840, we currently offer a few roller bunks. One I recommend is the Dutton-Lainson deluxe roller bunk # DL21741 because of the non-marking rollers. Also, they are galvanized steel (resists corrosion) and each 5 foot section has a 3,000 pound capacity per pair of rollers. These rollers can be fastened directly to the edge of your existing bunk boards, or the brackets part # DL21742 can be used. You would need 4 of them to mount a pair of roller...

    The Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk # DL21741 are the best option for your Boat trailer. These are only available in the Galvanized steel frame currently. I would recommend using all rollers on your boat trailer so that the boat will be much smoother loading and unloading.

Remember that as the rollers will allow the boat to load and...

  • Parts Needed to Convert a Magic Tilt Trailer From Bunk Boards to Roller Bunks
    I do not see why you would not be able to convert your Magic Tilt trailer to roller bunks. Typically you want the bunks to be at least 50% of the length of your boat, but I recommend using the same length as the current bunks from the manufacturer or even slightly longer if you have the space. To make the transition to roller bunks, you will need the roller bunks and the bunk brackets. The Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk # DL21740 will provide a 4' roller bunk section. You likely need...
