Default Trailer Bunk Carpet

Needing to change the carpet on my trailer bunks after only one year. Anyone have recommendations on best carpet to use? Also, should I sand down the bunks where the carpet is wearing so fast?

thanks!

I just use black outdoor carpet from Lowe’s but make sure you use stainless staples. Has lasted 3+ years with no wear.

If going with actual bunk carpet, I would order from eastern marine.

I would use the loop type black if available, seems to hold up better than the fluffy stuff. Use Monel staples. You can use glue if you want. I would also add liquid roller to keep from getting burn marks. However DO NOT unstrap the bot until it is in the water.

Sorry but I don't think you are getting anything from use of carpet. If the boat is properly strapped down there should be no relative movement to damage the bottom of the boat.

Wood also dries out better and extends the life of the bunk.
