Trailer Bunk Materials - Ultimate Bunk Boards

Postby Nephroid » Thu Nov 14, 2019 12:56 pm

I recently acquired a '72 DSII and am in the process of restoring the (likely original) trailer that it came one. One thing I want to do right away is to replace the currently 2x4 on end bunks with 2x6 or 2x8 boards laid flat.

I came across these solid HDPE boards made by a company called Ultimate Bunk Boards.

Generally online reviews and forum posts seem positive. They initially seemed too pricey but, after looking pricing out some decent marine carpet, total cost seems pretty close. Since these have a longer service life, they may actually be cheaper in the long run.

Curious to see if anyone here has had any experience with them.

Would be curious, too.

I got a carpet remnant (either outdoor or vehicle, can't remember) and it's worked fine. Definitely cheap.

But the wood I used needs replacement eventually, perhaps every 10 years or so. So I can see the attraction.

I replaced mine with treated 2x10's and the green outdoor carpet.

The HDPE boards may conform to the hull and spread the load better.
