Lighted Guide On Recommendation for a Boat Trailer


I have a trailer for a 14foot boat. The trailer currently has rear lighting mounted to the rear cross frame. This places the lights below the water whenever launching or loading the boat. I would like to purchase a bracket kit that would allow the lights to be up and to the side of the boat. Your Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 40inch Tall might do the job, but I do not have confidence in the sturdiness of the PVC tubing. I would prefer some type of metal. Also, I will need to run the electrical wires from the trailer frame and inside the tubing support to the lights. Do you make such a product? Please reply. I am very interested in making a purchase. Thank you, I have attempted to attach a picture.

We actually have a product that does exactly what you are looking to do. Check out the CE Smith Guide Ons part # CE27740. These are guide-ons that have LED lights on the tops of them for increased visibility.

The PVC of this kit would be strong enough for it's intended purpose of helping guide a boat onto the trailer. As long as you aren't hitting them at too hard of angle you should be just fine. You would probably have bigger problems anyway if you were hitting these hard enough to break them.

The metal base of these guide ons would be stronger than the ones you currently have that are all PVC.
