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 both to be safe and secure.

4) Unroll and layout your new carpet (which you have already cut to size) with the rubber backing facing up. Take the first bunk board and spread a thin layer of water based adhesive on to the bottom. Place the bunk board (glue side facing down) evenly right to the edge of the laid out carpet. Leaving enough carpet on either end to completely wrap each end of your bunk. (You want the edge of the carpet to come to the edge of the bunk board.) As it sets apply a thin layer of glue to the entire length of the furthest side of the bunk board (the side towards the remaining width of the new carpet). Once glue is applied grab either end of the bunk and tightly roll the glued side of the board onto the rubber back of the new carpet. Repeat this step for the top and remaining side of your bunk board. To make it easier on yourself, after applying glue and rolling the top side of the bunk board onto the new carpet, stop. The newly carpeted bottom side of the bunk board should be facing up and the last side of the board should still be exposed. 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 (the side that you glued down first). This will ensure a secure and snug fit. Then continue to glue and roll the remaining side of the bunk onto the carpet. If measured correctly when cut there should be about 2 inches or so of carpet left to overlap the first initial glued bottom side, glue down this excess carpet on top of the existing carpet and secure with staples. 

(Please be sure to use water based carpet glue, other alcohol based adhesives will eat away the rubber backing of the carpet.)

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.

Note:

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). This allows an extra 2 inches of carpet to overlap on the bottom of the bunk which lets you easily secure the carpet around the bunk. 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 because the 12in wide rolls of bunk carpet are not wide enough to fully cover the 2x6 application. 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.
