How to replace your trailer Bunk Board Carpet

1)  Unbolt and remove existing bunk boards from trailer. Take the existing bunk carpet off and sand away any glue or debris before applying new carpet. Also examine the old bunk boards and make sure that they are not warped or broken. Replace if needed. Obviously skip this one if your starting with new bunk boards.

2) Measure the size of your boat bunks to determine how many rolls of bunk carpet you will need. (See "Note" at bottom for suggested measuring method)

3) You may either glue or staple your replacement bunk carpeting down. We would suggest that you staple your bunk carpet down using 1/4" staples, around the back side of the board and not glue it. This alows the carpet to give while pulling your boat on which helps prevent rips and tears over time.

4) Unroll and layout your new carpet (which you have already cut to size) with the rubber backing facing up. Place the bunk board evenly right to the edge of the laid out carpet. Leaving enough carpet on either end to completely wrap each end of your bunk. When you get to this point take a staple gun and apply staples every 2 to 3 inches along the bottom of the newly carpeted bunk board. This will ensure a secure and snug fit. 

5) Take the newly wrapped bunk board and place it with the bottom side up one last time and use the excess carpet you have already accounted for at either end and wrap, securing with glue and staples. Overlap and secure the excess carpet to the bottom side of the bunk.

6) Place your new bunk board off to the side to dry and repeat steps for remaining bunks.

7) After allowing your new bunks to dry run your hand along the top and bottom side of the bunks and locate the bolt holes. Take a razor knife and safely cut an X through the carpet in the middle of each bolt hole to allow the bolts to go through the new bunk boards easily and prevent pulling the carpet when the bunks are reattached to the trailer.


For a better look, plan to wrap the entire bunk board, ends too. The majority of trailer bunks are made using standard 2x4 or 2x6 boards.

The actual measurements of a (in inches):


bunk board measurements

For bunk carpet installation: The width of the replacement carpet for each bunk should be at least 12 inches wide for 2x4 bunks (16 inches wide for 2x6 bunks). So you will need to get the 24" inch wide bunk carpet roll and cut it down if needed. When measuring the length of each bunk board add an extra 7 inches to the total length, to be safe. This allows for an extra 3.5 inches of carpet for both ends of the bunk. 1.5 inches of that is used to cover the exposed wood at either end. The other 2 inches is overlap so that you my secure the carpet easily at both ends with a staple gun and/or glue.

**Special Note**

For those who have bunk boards that use 2x6 size boards. Our 16oz. rolls of marine carpet can be used or our 24" inch wide bunk carpet rolls may be used and cut down. For a 2x6 application you will need your replacement carpet to be about 16in wide per bunk to be safe. These rolls of our 16oz marine grade carpet can be taken and cut into 16in wide strips.

There are 6ft wide and 8.5ft wide rolls available.

  •  A 6ft (72in) wide roll will allow you to cut 4 16in wide strips.
  •  A 8.5ft (102in) wide roll will allow you to cut 6 16in wide strips.

***As an added bonus there are 15 different carpet colors of our 16oz carpet available and in stock to choose from. In some cases purchasing a full roll of 16oz or 20oz carpet and cutting it into strips for your bunks may be cheaper than purchasing multiple pre-cut rolls of bunk carpet. There is no difference in quality between our pre-cut bunk carpet rolls and our full rolls of marine carpet. All of our marine carpeting is tough, durable, fade resistant, rubber backed and made specifically for use in the harsh marine environment.
