Expert Answers about CE Smith

  • How to Install the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981
  • Basically, you put the open end around the shaft on each end of the roller then use some pliers to clamp it closed so it is tight to the shaft. This allows the roller to roll but stay in position. I made a video showing what this would look like for you.

  • How to Attach Carpet to Boat Trailer Bunk Boards
  • I recommend attaching the carpet to your boards using staples. If you wrap the carpet around the board and only staple the carpet on the sides or back of the board, the staples will not scratch the hull of your boat.

  • How to Attach CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10001G-4
  • The CE Smith Galvanized Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10001G-4 come with nuts and bolts to attach the swivel brackets to the bolster brackets, but you will need to supply either lag bolts or other through bolt hardware to attach these assemblies to the wooden bunks on your boat trailer and the trailer frame. Either type of hardware is suitable and you can determine which is best, and what specific length you need, based on the construction of your particular...

  • Will CE Smith Boat Trailer Work For Achilles SGX-132 Boat?
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs up to 12' Long - 800 lbs # CE48810 will be able to tow the Achilles SGX-132 Aluminum bottom because it won't require the space allotted at the front of the trailer for a solid bow. The flexibility will work to your advantage. We have had other customers do similar fits and even have a customer photo of a similar fit posted to that page. Based on the listed 187 lb weight of this boat, with the back of the boat having a cut out to include the...

  • V Mounting Brackets to Convert Conventional Trailer into Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • The V mounting brackets that you could use to convert your conventional trailer to a pontoon boat trailer are the CE Smith V-Wing Bolster Bracket, # CE26244G. When it comes to mounting hardware for these brackets, I recommend using a screw and washer like our 3/8 Inch Stainless Steel Hex Lag Screw, # FA74521, and Stainless Steel Washer, # FA0152661. I have attached a link to our U-bolts for boat trailers. Since the mounting slot on the V bracket would typically run parallel with...

  • Replacement Trailer Bunk Brackets for a Escort Boat Trailer
  • The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly # CE10000G that you referenced would work well to replace the bunk brackets on your boat trailer. You would be able to set the angle for the bunks that you would like with the # CE10000G also. I attached a picture that shows that you can use different angles.

  • Tire and Fender Upgrade on CE Smith Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810
  • According to my contact at CE Smith their Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810 can indeed take 12-inch wheels, with only new fenders required as you noted. I have linked our main page for tire/wheel combinations in the 12-inch size and with the 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern used for the CE Smith trailer. For a galvanized wheel-with-tire in Load Range B you can use part # AM30590. Please note that all trailer tires in this size are rated to speeds up to 65-mph maximum. We do not offer...

  • Replacement Trailer Fenders for Car Tow Dolly Trailer with 14 Inch Wheels
  • No worries. I have seen fenders in much worse shape. It looks like the best option is going to be the fenders that you have referenced # CE17900G. I know that this fender does not have mounting holes. But that is because they are a universal fit item and you will need to provide your own hardware for mounting. We do have some mounting brackets you can use, # CE26098G-2. I have also included a link to all of the fenders that we carry that fit 14 inch wheels. Fenders, unless otherwise...

  • Recommended Staple Size for Bunk Board Carpet
  • We typically try to use 1/2 inch stainless steel staples when we install the CE Smith Deluxe Marine-Grade Carpeting, # CE11372, but 3/8 inch staples will work too. I would not go much shorter than the 3/8 inch staples because you don't want them to work their way out over time. I strongly recommend using stainless steel staples if possible. They will last much longer because they provide the best rust resistance.

  • Can CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810 Be Adapted With a Folding Coupler to Simplify Storage in Garage
  • We offer hinged trailer couplers such as the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit for 2 x 3-Inch Trailer Tongues, part # FHDPB230101. This particular folding coupler fits 2 x 3-inch steel trailer tongues such as the tongue on the CE Smith Trailer. My contact at CE Smith confirmed that cutting the trailer tongue to install a hinged coupler is perfectly acceptable. This Fulton coupler is rated for 5000-lbs so it is more than adequate for the task on the CE Smith trailer that carries your...

  • Max Speed Rating for the CE Smith Boat Trailer CE48810
  • Since you are looking for a way to transport a kayak a much better solution for you would be a Yakima Rack and Roll trailer like part # Y08106 as this is rated for highway speeds. As always, exceeding posted speed limits is not recommended, especially when towing. The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs # CE48810 that you referenced uses 4.80/4.00-8 sized tires that are rated for 65 miles per hour like most trailer tires.

  • Spare Wheel/Tire Combo Recommendation for CE Smith Boat/PWC Trailer # CE48810
  • You could use either the # AM30020 for a white painted steel wheel or the # AM30030 for a steel wheel with a galvanized finish. The tires that are included on the CE Smith # CE48810 trailer are manufactured by Kenda, the same company as the tires used on both the wheel/tire combos I mentioned. The tread pattern might be slightly different, but because the tire will be used as a spare, it doesn't need to be an exact match.

  • Replacement Carpeted Bunks For Boat Trailer Recommendation
  • We offer both carpet that you can use to replace your worn carpet on your bunks for your trailer, and we also carry replacement carpeted bunks for your trailer. The carpeted bunks we offer come in varied lengths. If you need 6 ft bunks, I recommend part # CE27840. These come in a set of 2, and is wrapped with marine-grade black carpeting. For 5 ft bunks, you would need part # CE27820, for 4 ft bunks, part # CE27810, and for 3 ft bunks you would need part # CE27800. If you decide...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern
  • Depending on the configuration and mounting options on your trailer you may be able to use a spare tire carrier like the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier, part # FETCSTL0701. When used with a spare tire with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern the bracket can be bent to fit. This option does not offer any offset, but will work for 5 on 5. With this set up you will get the carrier and lock in one. I went out to the warehouse and took a measurement of this part for you (see photo at right) to help...

  • Bunk Boards Needed to Carry Kayaks on Boat Trailer
  • You can actually purchase the carpeted bunk boards and the brackets that hold them, like what is on the CE Boat Trailer # CE48810, separately. This way you can add more to your trailer if you have the room for it. The Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 can be installed on your boat trailer using the CE Smith U-Bolts # CE15283GA-4. These U-Bolts are 3-13/16" long, 3-1/16" wide, and have a 1/2" diameter. For bunk boards we have a couple of different length options for...

  • Weight Capacity And Parts Needed For Modifying Boat Trailer For 26 Ft Regal Commodore
  • I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, 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...

  • Bunk Board Carpet Recommendation for a 2x6 Bunk Board
  • We don't sell 2x6 bunk boards, but we do sell the carpet to allow you to wrap boards that are that size. 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.

  • How To Mount Two Kayaks on CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810
  • The picture of the two kayaks mounted on the CE Smith Boat Trailer, part # CE48810, are attached with the bunks installed perpendicular to the trailer frame. I am including a link to the installation instructions that will show good color pictures of the trailer with the bunks in the perpendicular position. The trailer does not come with any type of cargo tie-downs to hold your kayaks to the trailer. I would recommend to use the correct size of tie-downs for the size of your kayaks....

  • Can Motor Be Left on Saturn Inflatable Boat if Loaded on CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810
  • I looked up pictures of your Saturn inflatable 12ft. boat and the motor can fold up and out of the way so you should be able to keep it on the boat in terms of ground clearance if loaded on the CE Smith Boat Trailer part # CE48810. Unless Saturn states that the motor has to come off when on a trailer you would be totally fine to leave it on.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation For Retainer Ring to Hold Wobble Roller to 3/4-Inch Shaft
  • The CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring, part # CE10981, can be used for 1-1/8 inch shaft size and 3/4-inch shaft size. You will need to choose the correct size washer along with the retainer ring for installation on your 3/4 -inch shaft. The washer you will need is the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 3/4-Inch Shaft, part # CE10983.

  • Spare Tire Cover to Fit 215/70R16 Size Spare Tire
  • The overall diameter of a 215/70R16 size tire is just under 28-inches (27.8 to be exact). For a tire of this size I suggest one of the black spare tire covers that are shown on the link provided for you. Classic Accessories # 052963753479 is a vinyl cover with an elastic back hem. Rampage # RA772901 is a fabric cover of material similar to a Jeep top that has an adjustment cord for a snug fit. Either of these will be a better fit for your 16-inch wheels than the item you referenced,...

  • How to Install Pal Nuts on a Roller Shaft
  • The easiest way to install pal nuts on a roller shaft is to completely assemble everything (roller, brackets, roller shaft, etc...) before mounting it on the trailer. Place one pal nut on the ground, open end up, and place the roller shaft on the pal nut. Next, with everything assembled on the shaft, put the other pal nut on the other end of the shaft and use a hammer to tap the top pal nut onto the shaft. While you are tapping on the top pal nut, the roller shaft will seat into the pal...

  • Recommended Bunk Brackets For Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • If there is no flex in the bunks with the pontoon boat loaded, you should be fine with the 1/2 inch clearance. If you are possibly hitting the frame of the trailer when traveling I recommend replacing the bunk brackets with taller ones like part # CE10161GA. This bracket sits on top of the frame of the trailer and are 8 inches tall, and 5 inches wide with 4 mounting holes that are spaced 1-1/2 inches apart center to center. This will give you options to mount the bunks at the height...

  • Replacement Carpeted Bunk Boards for a Boat Trailer with 10 Foot Long Bunk Boards
  • For bunk boards that are 10 feet long you could use a couple sets of the 5 foot long bunk boards, # CE27820. You would use one set of each 10 foot section needed. If brackets are needed you can use bolster bracket set # CE10000G-4. You will need at least 2 bracket per board.

With this product you will most likely want the CE Smith U-Bolt - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16" Wide x 1/2" Diameter - Qty 1, # CE15283GA and the CE Smith Swivel Bracket for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel - 2-1/2" Hole Centers - Qty 1, # CE10200G.

  • Will CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers # CE22007Z-11050-2 Fit 1-1/2-Inch Trailer Frame
  • We do not offer trailer-mount spare tire carriers with a narrower u-bolt than the CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers, part # CE22007Z-11050-2, which has a u-bolt that is 3-1/16-inch wide. However, this part will still work on your 1-1/2-inch trailer frame. Since the tire and carrier both will be tightened down to your trailer frame with the two supplied lug nuts the trailer frame being smaller than the u-bolt will not matter. You will just want to position the u-bolt so that the...
