  • GatorBack Bunks

    My carpet is due for a change on my bunks. I have seen several post where people installed Gatorback bunk covers but not many reviews after some time in use.
    Curious how you like them? How are they holding up? Any marking on the hull? Pro/cons to loading/unloading? Would you do it again?

    I had installed it on the bunks of our X2. For the season I had it, I loved them. The boat slid back onto the trailer much easier and required much less power to get into the ramp-n-clamp. I has also installed LED's under the covers which lit up for night loading. I would 100% recommend and do it again. Install is stupid easy as well.

      I made the switch last year and will never go back. I also replaced the wooden bunk boards to go back witha completely new setup.

      I have a red hull and the carpet scratched the crap out of the bottom, and now i have no scratches on the hull!!!

      Best purchase I have made for the trailer.

        I have the same situation with a red hull, but I replaced the worn out carpet bunks anyways with black GatorBak last summer. Much easier to crank onto the trailer now.
        Also replaced the wood bunks as well. Old ones had some large cracks.

          I'm considering installing GatorBak on our Ski Club boat trailer. The boat gets taken on and off the trailer 4-5 times a week, so the carpet bunks take a real beating. We have to replace the carpet every season. Does anyone have any long term use of GatorBak to speak to the long term durability? I'd be pretty happy if we could get 2 seasons out of it, so does it last at least twice as long as carpet?

            Great question. That is a lot of load and unload for sure. Gator Back does have a 3 year warranty.

              Have had them installed for a season or two did the "clear" with blue LED's. One of them has peeled up or split at the rear where the hull first makes contact...have not jacked the boat up off the trailer to investigate. Last time it was out the kids had it second week of December, so the water may have been a bit lower. To me they seem about the same as far as friction goes vs carpet, but they don't absorb silt that will scratch the hull. $$ wise, get your carpet for the bunks at home dumpster.
