Expert Answers about CE Smith

  • Are Roller Bunks or Keel Rollers Needed on the CE Smith Boat Trailer Part # CE48810
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810 comes with guide ons which help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport so I don't really recommend adding anything additional in regards to this aspect because of the size of the boat. However, if you will be launching your boat at night or in the early mornings I recommend using the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights part # CE27740 which will provide visual targets. What I do recommend using is a two...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How Many Bolster And Swivel Brackets Are Needed For A Boat Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, like part # CE10000G, do not bear the weight of the boat. The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat. There should be a bracket attached to each cross member of the trailer frame. If you are buying several brackets, I would recommend part # CE10000G-4. This is a set of 4 of the 9 inch adjustable brackets. If you need longer adjustable...

  • How To Measure a Boat Trailer Fender Without Removing the Wheel
  • I can understand that if your boat is loaded on the trailer, you don't want to remove one of the wheels to measure the fenders. Measuring a fender with the tire still mounted can be tricky, but it's not impossible. I've provided a diagram that should be helpful. You already know how to measure the width. To get the length it is easiest to tape a piece of stiff paper to the end of each fender edge that will protrude past the wheel. Then measure between the papers. For the height, you can...

  • 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,...

  • Replacement Fenders Needed for a 13" Wheel on a Tracker Trailstar Boat Trailer
  • We do have a selection of fenders for 13" wheels that you can use to replace your current fenders. Among our linked selection we have different constructions like aluminum, plastic, and steel. These fenders can mount via brackets or welding depending on the style. From the pictures you sent in (thank you by the way) it looks like your current fenders are steel and have a step. The only fenders that we carry which have a step are our plastic ones. We have the CE Smith Fender # CE19503...

  • How to Choose the Correct Pre-Greased Replacement Hub for Snowbear Trailer
  • There are pre-greased hubs available in a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. In order to find the correct replacement hub you can take apart your good hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If your hub has inner and outer bearings # L44643 you'd need CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly w/ Carrying Case for 2,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # CE13210. Should your hub have inner and outer...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Upgrades to CE Smith Boat Trailer Model 48810
  • Upgrading the carpeted bunks on your CE Smith Boat Trailer to roller bunks like the CE Smith # CE27710 is a great way to upgrade the trailer. These will allow for much easier loading and launching of your boat and reduce the stress put on your hand winch during operation. These are 5 foot long bunks that will work perfectly to replace the 5 foot bunk boards on the trailer. You can use the Bunk Brackets # CE10003G-4 to mount them to the trailer. It looks like the trailer is equipped with...

  • Hub Replacement Recommendation for DICO Hub part 45264
  • Yes, the CE Smith Trailer Hub part # CE13511 will fit as a replacement for your DICO hub 45264 but you will need to use a different seal as we have found that your spindle diameter is slightly different which means you need the # 168255TB as well.

  • Bunk Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • The Bunk Style Guide-Ons # CE27671 are designed specifically for pontoon boats because they're shorter and install vertically. See the picture I've attached. However, depending on your trailer the 60 inch Guide-Ons # CE27600 that install horizontally may be better for you. Even though it isn't what we typically see.

  • CE Smith Boat Guide On For a Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The bunk board of the # CE27600 that you referenced is 60 inches long. That may be a bit of a stretch to get to fit around a tandem axle fender but you would need to measure yours first. Between the posts is going to be around 48 inches depending on where you drill the holes to mount the boards. A better option may be to install two sets of the # CE27660 instead. One before and after the fenders.

  • Guide-Ons for a Pontoon Boat and Trailer
  • We have a couple of great options for pontoon boat guide-ons. First, if you want to go with a roller-style we have # CE27672. The rubber rollers are designed so that they won't scratch the boat. If you like the bunk style we have # CE27671. The bunks on this set will have a bit more surface area than the rollers but eventually would will need to replace the carpet on the bunks. On pontoon boats the guides are supposed to mount more in the center of the trailer so that pontoons will...

  • 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...

  • How to Find the Correct Replacement Hub
  • There is a way to find the correct replacement hub, but not by the size of the hub face. In order to find the correct replacement hubs for your trailer, you need to first know what bearings your current hub has; you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper such as # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride. You can use the photo I've attached...

  • Can CE Smith Boat Trailer be Used with a Porta-Bote
  • You probably would not have to modify CE Smith boat trailer # CE48810 to use it with your Porta Bote. The boat would just have to be properly secured to the trailer. The trailer can support boat up to 12 feet long and up to 800 pounds. For straps I recommend a transom tie down such as # IMF17631. Other useful straps you can use include # EM34423 which you can bolt directly to the trailer frame. Other than that I do not foresee any modifications being necessary.

  • 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...

  • Can Roller Bunks Be Used on Tritoon Boat Trailer
  • Roller bunks like those shown on the linked page will work just as well on a 3-hull tritoon as on a pontoon boat. If you intend to mount the rollers onto the flat surface of existing wooden/carpeted 2x4 bunk boards you will want to use a flat-bottom type roller like # DL21741, but we also have rollers like # DL21755 that have a channel that fits over the narrow side of a 2x4. The flat-bottom type can also be directly mounted to bolster brackets like # CE10003G-4 as shown in the linked...

  • Recommended Fenders for Size 205/65-10 Tires on Trailer
  • With a tire width of 8.3 inches, it is wise to use a wider fender like the Single Axle Trailer Fender - Jeep Style # CE18041ATB which is 10 inches wide to give you that slightly wider protection. That will help shield your tire and protect your trailer from road debris. The single axle fender # J10821 which are also 10 inches wide. I recommend the wider coverage as tires expand a little when hot due to both road friction and ambient temperature. You do not want a fender narrower...

  • Compatibility of Boat Trailer Roller Bunks with CE Smith Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10196G-4
  • If your Dutton Lainson roller bunks have a flat bottom surface like part # DL21741 then you can mount them directly to the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10196G-4 as shown in the linked photo. These are the tallest ones we offer. If the bunks have an open channel in the bottom, like part # DL21755, then you will want to first mount the bunks to a 2 x 4 bunk board which will fit into that channel and then mount that to the brackets.

  • Recommended U-bolts and Brackets for Boat Trailer Bunk Boards

This will allow you to mount them to your 3x3 inch square tube trailer. For your bunk boards, I recommend the Fulton Marine Grade Carpeting, 12" Wide x 144" Long - Black # FCR8012 to cover your bunk boards.

  • Fender Recommendation for 13 inch Wheel for Use with Bracket # CE26098G-2
  • A much better fender option for you would be the part # F775X28-1R to use with the brackets part # CE26098G-2. Reason being this fender has a 90 degree angled side on the inside of it that allows it to easily be used with fender brackets like this that have a 90 degree angle in them like the # CE26098G-2. The # CE17721 has radiused corners that would be difficult to use a bracket with 90 degree angles.
