Expert Answers about Boat Trailer Parts


  • Replacement Wobble Roller Needed with 1" Shaft for Older Boat Trailer
  • The only wobble roller that we have which fits a 1" shaft and doesn't have a 5" diameter is the CE Smith # CE29539. This wobble roller has a 4" diameter and measures 3" wide. If you need it to have a larger diameter than 4" then you need to bump up to the 5" diameter like the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller for EZ Loader Boat Trailers # YR500YW-8PEZ. If you still have the original rollers on your boat trailer and the trailer is as old as your boat then it is entirely possible that the roller...

  • The best option for your boat to move better on and off your trailer is to use the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks # DL21741. These rollers make loading and launching your boat easy. They are available in 4 and 5 foot lengths, so I've linked a page to assist. You will also need the roller bunk brackets like # DL21742. The attached video will also help you with the installation and operation. One note is that we recommend having a rope attached to your boat when using...

  • Recommended Roller Bunks For LoadRite PWC Trailer
  • The CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers - 6 Rollers Each - 5' Long - 1,500 lbs - 1 Pair # CE27710 will work well for your LoadRite trailer. If you want the 4 foot option, you can use # CE27700. This will work with the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies for Roller Bunks - Galvanized Steel - Qty 4 # CE10003G-4. These brackets will follow the contours of your boat. For installing the brackets, I recommend the CE Smith U-Bolts - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16" Wide x...

  • Bunk Board Guide On Kit Recommendation for Trailer with Wider Outside Frame Channels
  • Since the outside frame channel on your trailer is about as wide as your boat you'd need to go with a guide on that has a 90 degree angle for the upright posts instead like the part # CE27600K90 so that you'll get closer contact like you need.

  • Bow Roller Recommendation to Fit 4 inch Roller that is Too Long
  • Looks like you have the part # YR450BLK-400BLK installed and are needing the next size down which happens to be the part # YR300BLK-325BLK. This fits the same 1/2 inch diameter shaft but is 1 inch shorter than what you have. Your bell ends being deformed would not be a good sign.

  • Where To Install a CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller
  • For starters, in order to use the CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29505 on your boat trailer you will also need to use the CE Smith Panel Bracket for 12" Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10305G and the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10727A. In regards to installation, these will need to be installed towards the stern of the boat, in the center of the trailer. This would be the only place that would allow them to effectively center...

  • How to Prevent Metal Bow Roller Brackets from Contacting the Boat
  • Almost all bow roller assemblies have an industry standard hardness of 85a durometers. I was able to call my contact at Yates to confirm this. I do have a solution for you but we do not have any bow rollers with a hardness rating greater than 85a durometers at this time. However, I believe the problem you are experiencing can be eliminated using a wider roller as this would in turn dissipate the weight more evenly to minimize contact with the metal brackets. I recommend using the Bow...

  • Recommended Carpet Width for Bunk Boards Measuring 2 Inches X 6 Inches
  • For 2 x 6 bunks you'll want the 18-inch width carpet # CE11349 in order to have full wrap-around coverage without exposed wood. As for wood, using treated could extend the life of the your bunk boards, but you will be also looking a higher cost then using untreated wood.

  • 10 Foot Long Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailer
  • I can certainly understand not wanting to have to connect 2 five-foot carpeted bunk rails like # CE27820 to get the 10 foot bunks you need. We don't offer them in the 10' length because the shipping costs would be more expensive than the bunks themselves. If you're a DIY kind of person, you can pretty easily make your own bunk boards using 2" x 4" or 2" x 6" pressure-treated lumber and CE Smith Marine Grade Carpeting like # CE11350. Most hardware stores will cut the boards to the length...

  • Replacement Brackets And Hardware For Boat Trailer Bunk Boards
  • Thanks for the photos. For your boat trailer, I recommend the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies - Galvanized Steel - 13" - Qty 4 # CE10002G-4. These brackets are available in different heights. These brackets are held to your trailer with u-bolts like the CE Smith U-Bolts - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16" Wide x 1/2" Diameter - Qty 4 # CE15283GA-4. These brackets hold on your Bunk boards like the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers - 6' Long - 1 Pair...

  • How To Convert a Boat Trailer from Center Rollers to Bunk Rollers
  • Yes, it is possible to switch from center rollers to bunk rollers on a boat trailer. For this, you will first need to remove the center rollers and then you can install a set of bunk rollers, part # CE27710 along with part # CE10000G-4 to support the hull. Then, in order to support both the port and starboard sides you can use part # CE27600. I have attached a photo of a similar setup with bunk boards instead of bunk rollers for the hull. In addition to the above you will also need to...

  • Recommended Pontoon Boat Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • The pontoon trailer guide-ons only come in a set of 2 as that is all that is needed, although you can add more if you believe that it is necessary. That all just depends on how confident you are about staying on the right track once you have started guiding your pontoon onto your boat trailer. You will want to position them on your boat trailer so that they span the open space on the underside of your pontoon boat (see attached picture). There are 2 different style of guides that you...

  • Recommended Trailer Guide-Ons for Classic Sailboat
  • You are correct in stating that the guideposts on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall # CE27640 will only adjust out to 13 inches from your trailer. The mounting brackets used will not be able to provide any additional length. If you need a bit more room and are okay with taller guideposts, I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons - 75" Tall # CE27636. These are quite a bit taller at 75 inches, but they are able to adjust out to 19 inches from your trailer,...

  • Availability of 90-Degree Guide Ons for Pontoon Boat

I recommend taking a look at the CE Smith 90-Degree Bunk Board Guide-On Kit # CE27600K90. This is the only 90-degree kit we have available and it is essentially designed so that you can make your own bunk board boat guide ons, specific to your particular boat.

  • Recommended Keel Roller For Best Weight Capacity on Boat Trailer

The weight of the boat will actually be on the bracket and the 5/8 inch shaft that runs through the heavy-duty roller. Your application with the front weight the roller is more likely to bend the longer you make the roller.

  • Determining Length of Bolster Bracket for New Bunk System on Boat Trailer
  • To be on the safe size, I recommend going with a 13 inch bracket # CE10002G-4 at the back of the trailer and an 11 inch bracket with # CE10003G at the front. A nice feature on these brackets is that they will each actually have as much as 3-3/4 inches of height adjustment due to their mounting slots, so even if its total height is a bit higher than needed, you can adjust them down. This will allow you to have the perfect height for your new bunk support system. I have attached a short...

  • Recommended Roller Bunks or Roller Bunk Wheels for Boat Trailer

The Dutton-Lainson roller bunks like # DL21741 are also very well made with a current 4.8 out of 5 star rating. The CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers - 6 Rollers Each - 5' Long - 1,500 lbs - 1 Pair # CE27710 have 5 out of 5 star ratings but from far less people. They are both excellent products. The roller bunks have 18 wheels each so I think the price...

  • Are the 75" Long CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Offered in Black
  • The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons are offer in both white and black but the black poles only come in a length up to 60" whereas the white are offered up to 75" long. Therefore, you could purchase the 75" long white poles with part # CE27636 and spay paint them black or you could just purchase the 60" long black ones with part # CE27646. Is is also important to note that the u-bolts that come with the black posts are a bit shorter than the u-bolts included with the white posts so if your...

You will need to use the CE Smith U-Bolts # CE15283GA-8 to install these assemblies and both the brackets and bolts are galvanized for future protection from corrosion.

  • How Much Bunk Carpet is Needed for Six 20 Foot Long 2x4 Bunk Boards
  • You would need 7 of carpeting # CE11349 for six 2x4s that are 20 feet long. A 2x4 measures 10 inches around when you add up all 4 sides so you would not be able to use 18 inch wide carpeting between 2 boards. So if we go by length the total length of six 20 foot boards is 1,440 inches. Our longest roll of carpet is 216 inches. So taking 1,440 divided by 216 we get 6.6 rolls need, rounded up to 7. Or you could use 10 of # FCR8012 but I recommend going with 11 of this size because...

If you could instead mount the winch like in the picture I attached you could then go with a different bow roller possibly.

  • What are Benefits of Bracket Assemblies on Boat Trailer?
  • Even if the boards can bear the weight of the boat, by concentrating the weight on a smaller, 3 inch surface, there is a greater risk to denting or deforming the hull of your boat compared to having the boat's weight spread out over a larger surface. To install your bunk boards, the assemblies you mentioned, the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10190GA-4 are the best overall option. They attach with a pair of U-bolts # CE15283GA-8 each for connection security, and both the...

  • Best Position for Boat Trailer Guide-Ons on Boat Trailer
  • Having guide-on posts at the rear of the trailer is the best place for them. This allows you to know where the trailer starts as you approach it in your boat so that you can be as best positioned as possible. The 60 inch set part # CE27640 would be the way to go. You wouldn't need taller than that.

Or if you wanted the bunks not to have any gaps between them you could go with an additional set of 4 foot bunks part # CE27700 and you could trim them down to match the length needed.

For your 10' bunks use 2 of the 5' long bunks, part # DL21741 or # DL21755, and then use 2 of the 4' lengths # DL21740 or # DL21754 for your 8' bunks. just be mindful that the 5' long rollers have a weight rating of 3,000 lbs and the 4' long rollers have a weight rating of 2,500 lbs. All this means is that you don't want more that that much of the 2014 Tahoe Q7i's weight resting on a single set of the rollers at one time.

If the trailer does not have an I-beam frame then a 60 inch set with lights on top, # CE27760, is a great option as well. Based on the boat I would not go under 60 inches.

  • Key Dimensions for Selecting Boat Trailer Wobble Rollers
  • Boat trailer wobble rollers like # YR500YW-7P and not trailer-specific or brand-specific so if their dimensions match up you'll be fine using them as replacements.

Clips like part # CE10981 are crimped on the ends of the shaft to keep the roller in place using Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003.

  • I believe you are asking about the height from the top of the roller down to where the bracket would mount on a trailer. The # DL21741 is 2-1/2 inches for that dimension and then the # CE27710 is 2-13/16 inches. These are both hot dipped.

  • Is There a Difference Between Blue and Yellow Yates Keel Rollers
  • Both the blue/purple 8 inch keel rollers like part # YR800B and the yellow part # YR800Y are essentially the same thing just different colors. These are non-marking style rollers which is the way to go as the black ones will leave marks.

  • Bunk Style Guide-Ons for Triumph Boat Trailer
  • We carry a pair of bunk-style guide-ons for boat trailers, the 24 inch # CE27660 and the 60 inch # CE27600. These guide-ons are made from pre-galvanized steel which can oxidize so they would need to be primed and painted in order to do well in salt water. These guide-ons are for trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall and you would need longer U-bolts # CE11416 if your frame was up to 5-1/4" tall.

  • How To Install Rollers On a Pontoon Boat
  • It sounds like you are trying to bring the boat down closer to the trailer frame. I have personally not seen many setups that involve using keel rollers like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10455G with a pontoon boat but if you have an idea in mind we do have these in various sizes. That said, I think the best option we can offer you to add a roller would be with the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks part # DL21741 and the CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Pontoon...

  • Dimensions of Multipurpose U-bolt for Boat Trailers
  • I took the measurements of the Multipurpose U-bolt, part # CE15504A, which you can see on the enclosed diagram.

The closest sized U-bolt we are going to have is the Multipurpose U-bolt, part # CE15503A, which is 4" Long x 3-1/8" Wide. If these dimensions work for you then part # CE15503A will fit your application.

  • Should Keel Rollers Touch the Bottom of the Boat
  • Thanks for the photo. It does indeed look like you need to move your keel rollers up towards the bottom of the boat until they are touching but not supporting the full weight. Therefore, marking the bracket when the rollers are flush to the bottom and then moving them up to this point will be a great idea.

  • Will the CE Smith U-Bolt # CE15502A Fit Around a 3" Winch Post and Fit Through a 1/4" Plate
  • The CE Smith U-Bolt # CE15502A that you referenced is actually only 3" long. If you have a 3" thick winch post and then a 1/4" plate on top of that it will definitely not be long enough to reach. Instead you would want to use a longer U-Bolt like the 4" Long CE Smith # CE15503A. This one measures 3-1/8" Wide and the bolts have a 7/16" diameter just like the one you were looking at.

  • Roller Bunk Recommendation When Additional Length Beyond 5 Feet is Needed

In the picture I attached you can see a boat trailer that uses two sets to create additional length.

  • Can 5 Foot Roller Bunks Replace 7 Foot Wood Bunks
  • Most likely yes, but that really depends on how much of your wooden bunks your boat is using. A lot of times bunks are longer than needed so if the front of your boat isn't using the full length of the bunk you could easily go with a 2 foot shorter section of bunk like the part # DL21741.

  • Boat Keel Is Cutting Keel Roller When Launching Boat
  • It does look like the weight of the boat may be too much for the keel rollers that you are using from the photo which is why the keel is digging into the roller.

The plastic construction will do a better job at supporting the keel. Ideally the trailer would have another cross member to add another keel bracket assembly and...
