Replacing Trailer Bunk Carpet

Postby Bosn Mate on Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:33 pm

Good Evening:

After launching Tingira, I noticed that one of the bunk's carpet ripped. Suspect that the bottom paint stuck to the carpet. I am trying to find replacement carpet but having trouble with the width - approximately 19".

Does anyone have a source for quality bunk carpet?

Thanks much,

Mike

You might check into Gator-Bak synthetic bunks covers. My CW is really hard on bunk carpet not to mention it sounds like a hole was being ripped in the bottom. I could literally start wearing through after 10 launches no matter how wet. Put these on last Jan and have probably launched and loaded 25-30 times. So far so good and they have a 3 year non pro rated guarantee. I will definitely have put that guarantee to the test by then.

Did you install this yourself? Did you glue it on or staple it?

Thanks
