Replaced 6 deteriorated, split, center keel rollers on a twin axle Shorelander boat trailer. The keel rollers were easy to install once the center roller support assembly was removed. The rollers were delivered along with several other items postage free within several days of placing my order. etrailer is my go to website for any trailer related needs.



by:

I recently purchased two Yates keel rollers , one 12" and one 8".... Was very please with the price , shipping , and the products I received !!! Will be happy to order from you guys again.

Thanks



by:

First of all fast shipping. had my keel roller in a couple of days. Looks great heavy duty to replace my bad one. I have ordered from E trailer several times and allways had fast shipping and good service. will order again from them if i need anything.



by:

Perfect fit



by:

Fast service, good products. My shipping and billing address is different. Usually have to track my orders down because the USPS doesn't recognize my physical address. If the USPS could get it together I would have given 5 stars. Good company.



by:

Just what I needed and in a timely manner. Thank you etrailer!



by:

I have purchased many new parts for an old trailer I am trying to save. Very satisfied
with the quality and service. Two things I would recommend is to show the size of the seals needed for each axel. It may be on your site somewhere and I missed it. Also the axel u-bolt length seems to be related to the number of leafs in the springs. My

springs have 4 leafs so I had to find them at a local shop. You may want to increase your variety of u-bolt sizes. Thanks

Quick shipping (same day!). Quality product (replaced my 3 Yates boat trailer rollers with the exact same size and manufacturer). Reasonably priced product and reasonable shipping cost with easy package tracking. Overall great company to buy from.



by:

Ordered on Saturday late came early Wednesday free shipping. Parts look right but have to remove boat from trailer to see if parts are correct. If they are will be 100 percent happy. Cost of parts were the best price around. Oh bought comple set of new rollers for my tracker boat.



by:

Great service, I ordered a product with 3 day shipping. The original product was back ordered so I got a call from eTrailer customer service to let me know that if I needed the product right away that I may want to choose a different model (that was in stock). The different item was a bit higher on price was given the 3 day shipping for the ground shipping price to offset the additional charge. A very good overall experience.



by:

I like all your products theses yachts keel rollers are going to work out good for the boat the v keel rollers and bow rollers. Thanks for your products.

Truly grateful for etrailer getting my parts to me in a hurry and right the first time. My boat trailer is back together just in time for spring fishing.

This Keel roller was available in many marinas and on line. I wanted to purchase both from the same company. etrailer.com was one of the few that offered the other roller which was 18 inches long. Order arrived in 5 days. Very happy with etrailer.com!

I ordered an 8 inch and a 10 inch keel roller.

Both will be installed on the boat trailer as soon as I can get the boat in the water.
Very happy with the whole experience

Previous owner said these were on there when he got it and he had the trailer several years. At these prices, If they do as well for me as they did for him, I'll be VERY happy.

  • Which Side of Crossbeam Do Keel Rollers Install
    That's going to depend on the trailer setup. I attached a picture that shows them mounted on the side of the trailer closest to the coupler but if your trailer setup needs it on the other side that would work as well.

  • Load Capacity of the Yates 8-Inch Keel Roller # YR8000
    I spoke with my contact at Yates on the Yates 8-Inch Keel Roller, part # YR8000, and he said the load capacity on the roller is 400 lbs. The keel rollers on a boat trailer are for positioning the boat on the trailer and do not have to carry much, if any weight of the boat. I am including a link to a video review on the Yates keel roller.

  • V-Keel Roller With Highest Weight Capacity
    For a V-Keel Roller, like you have referenced, the highest weight capacity is the Yates # YR8000 8-inch roller with a capacity of 400 pounds. The keel rollers on a boat trailer are for positioning the boat on the trailer and do not have to carry much weight of the boat. I have included a link to this product and a review video.

  • Replacement Keel Rollers for 1998 Calkins Boat Trailer
    In order to choose the correct replacement keel roller for a boat trailer you'll need to know both the length and shaft diameter. We do not have any options that are 9" long but we do have 8" part # YR8000 (5/8" Shaft) and 10" part # YR10000 (5/8" Shaft). I have attached a full list of rollers and bells below as well.

  • Availability of 5 Inch Long Keel Roller for 1/2 Inch Diameter Shaft
    We do have one 5 inch keel roller available that features a 1/2 inch inner diameter. This is with the Yates V Keel Roller # YR5213-4P. This is a heavy-duty rubber, V-shaped keel roller that will work with a 5 inch bracket and 1/2 inch diameter shaft. I have attached a short video demonstration ont his product that you can take a look at. We do also have a nice selection of 8 inch long keel rollers available, such as the Yates # YR8000, however they all feature a 5/8 inch inner diameter....

  • Is There a 6" Long Keel Roller with 1/2" Shaft
    The best option we have for what you are looking for is the Yates V Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # YR5213-4P which is 5" long with a 1/2" diameter shaft. The next size up would be the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # YR8000 which is 8" long but has a 5/8" diameter shaft. I have attached a list of all our keel rollers below as well.

  • Available of Boat Trailer Roller that has 5/8 inch Diameter Shaft

  • Differences Between Models of Yates Keel Rollers, # 8000 and # 8244
    I spoke with my contact at Yates and he said Yates 8-Inch Heavy Duty Keel Roller, part # YR8000, and the super-heavy-duty model, part # YR8244-105EC will have the same load capacity of 400 lbs. The keel rollers on a boat trailer are for positioning the boat on the trailer and do not have to carry much, if any weight of the boat. Really the only difference is the diameter of the rollers. The super heavy duty has a 3-1/2" diameter as opposed to a 3-3/8" diameter. I am including links to...

  • Is There a Keel Roller That'll Work With 2" Boat To Frame Clearance?
    I have a possible option for you, but we do not have something that's going to work with 2" of clearance out of the box. You're going to need to pick up a keel roller such as the Yates # YR8000 and have a local fabrication shop make you a mount to work with the 2" clearance you have.

  • Replacement Keel Roller Recommendation to Replace 7-3/4 Inch Roller
    You would need to replace the bracket with part # CE10303G and then go to an 8 inch roller like part # YR8000.

  • Comparing 8" Long Yates Keel Rollers for Boat Trailer
    The difference between the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers # YR8244-105EC and # YR8000 is that the former has the middle spacing at about 5/8" while the latter has an increased middle spacing of about 1". I have attached photos of each for you to check out. You just need to make sure that your pin has a 5/8" diameter like part # CE10725A and you can use either one as a replacement.

  • 7-3/8 and 11-3/8 Inch Keel Rollers for a Caulkins Boat Trailer
    There are some common size rollers found on boat trailers but really they can be just about any size. Roller # YR8000 has an overall length of 7-3/4 inches so it would fit in the 7-7/8 inch spacing. It fits on a 5/8 inch diameter shaft # CE10725A. Roller # YR12000 is actually 11-3/4 inches long and so it would fit the 11-7/8 spacing of your brackets. It also fits a 5/8 inch diameter shaft # CE10727A. I have linked video reviews of both rollers for you.

  • Dimensions of Yates Rubber YR8000 Boat Trailer Keel Roller
    The Yates Rubber # YR8000 keel roller has a 3-3/8 inch diameter at the ends, a 2-1/4 inch diameter at the flat spot in the center and is 7-3/4 inches long. The roller would use a 5/8 inch diameter shaft such as part # CE10725A and would mount using panel brackets like # CE10303G that would attach to the trailer crossmembers. It sounds like you have a good idea of the set up you need. The keel rollers help guide the boat onto the trailer so that the hull sits straight on the bunks. The...

  • Availability of 7-1/2-inch-long V-Shaped Replacement Keel Roller for Boat Trailer
    My contact at Yates Rubber advises that a nominal 8-inch keel roller does not measure exactly 8 inches; typically they are slightly smaller than the specified size, much the way a piece of 2 x 4 lumber is not exactly 2-inches by 4-inches. I took measurements of several replacement rollers and confirmed that the 8-inch size generally measures 7-5/16 (just the roller itself) and 7-3/4 inches including the nylon bushings on each end. For example, the Dutton-Lainson # DL21712 is a nominal...
