D-L roller bunks provide a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to upgrade bunk-style trailers to rollers. The rollers are to support a 14-foot flat-bottom jon boat, with no weight of a gas motor on the transom. Knowing that when launching the boat it would quickly roll off the trailer, I attached a cleat to the winch stand to temporarily secure the bow rope when I unhook the winch strap. I see that they now offer powder coated epoxy plain steel versions of the same roller bunks, but my experience with powder coated epoxy in salt water says - it's equally problematic - if not more so than my galv. If the designer was moderately competent he would have used extruded fiberglass rails instead of steel. If you are only going to use them in fresh water and then store your boat indoors - maybe you'll get a longer life span.
It did cause the boat to sit higher on the trailer and now it doesn't winch up properly to the front rubber keel wheel.
I'm curious how well these will hold up to salt water with regular fresh water rinses afterwards. I easily mounted the bars on top of my bunks and then readjusted the center rollers higher. I would recommend these rollers as trailer improvement to everyone that struggles at the landing with getting their boat on & off!
Visually guide your boat onto your trailer with Fulton's easy-to-use, easy-to-install boat guide.
Keep in mind everything we do on one side we're just going to repeat the same step on the other side.
We're going to put it about an inch away from our boat, and then we can tighten it the rest of the way down. From the closest part of the bowed upright to the end of the PVC tube the measurement is 15 inches. Also, the Bunk-Style Guide-Ons can be set at an angle, with the stern brackets a bit further apart than the bow brackets. I would put these just a few to the side of your boat on your trailer, evenly spaced, so you could use them as a visual aide to know when you are actually centered on your trailer. Keep your boat centered during the loading process, despite wind and waves, with these roller-style guide-ons. As the unit mounts under the frame the tru height is less than 21 by the height of the frame. Pre-Galvanized SteelPre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. I painted these first and then put the pvc tubes on and then installed them on the trailer. The picture shown above has the bracket mounted backwards from the instructions in the package.
Price would be a little more, but functionality and longevity would create much better customer satisfaction. No issues with rust after a season of repeated salt water launching with a subsequent fresh water rinses. After 36 years of being in the maintenance and fabrication field I can tell that these are of good quality and constructed well.


We are on the Bay Of Fundy & drive onto the beach to launch our boat rather than at a proper boat ramp. Have not had time to install but have inspected and looks like it will solve my problems with the shallow ramps I have to deal with. Part may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including 30-25170.
The Fulton boat guides are going to provide a visual cue when loading your boat on your trailer.
From the same spot to the inside of the closest U-Bolt the measurement is 13 inches, when mounted on a 2 inch square tube frame. As you noted, you can adjust their side-to-side spacing to help keep your hull's strakes from contacting the center roller brackets.
This will create something of a V-shaped entry way for the boat that might help get and keep the keel in the roller. These are pre-galvanized and not raw steel but the edges are exposed steel so priming and painting is recommended.
The galvanized steel support posts mount horizontally on top of or below your trailer's frame rail.
They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing visual targets to center the boat between during loading.
I have a 2007 Chaparral 215SSi and these allow me to put the boat in the water by myself but on steep ramps, they get submerged.
They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing a visual target to center the boat's pontoons around. The edges of the pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process.
Product is great and is a exactly what I needed in aiding me with the loading of my 24" tritoon boat. I did receive them in a timely manner,I will save your email and will let you know how they work. They feature a special non-marking two-compound design rollers, have a durable wear resistant on the inner surface and then a soft-boat cushioning outer surface. Looking at the early rust progress of my roller bunks (even with fresh water wash down) - I doubt that they will last two years. They are surely going to make my life a lot easier to get my 20 foot bowrider boat on and off the trailer. The Fulton model has top and bottom brackets whereas the CE Smith guide-ons do not so the u-bolts might not be long enough depending on the height of your frame. We carry a vast range of suspension & axleA parts for American, British, German and Australian Trucks and Trailers. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between the rollers correctly matches the width of your boat.
For 3-inch wide trailer frames, you would run these u-bolts parallel or side-by-side over the frame.
The rollers themselves, just this center section, that's going to give us an overall length of 9 inches. These are already predrilled to accommodate a mounting bracket, if you want to add some lights to the posts.


If something doesn't make sense I'll read the directions because you all have an excellent track record and I realize it's me the installer that doesn't make sense. I am thinking of extending the height a bit to insure the top is out of the water and visible for running the boat onto the trailer. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between the bunks correctly matches the width of your boat. Because of the thinness of the coating less than 1 mm and the fact that the edges remain exposed, pre-galvanized parts can begin to oxidize and rust quickly, so its recommended that they be primed and painted. Whether the post is situated facing outboard or inboard is up to you, so you can mount it in whichever position best suits your trailer setup.
This Dutton -ainson Roller Bunks will provide a quick, easy and inexpensive way to upgrade the bunk-style trailers to roller bunks.
You also may be able to attach the guides to the galvanized step area by drilling through it and attaching the brackets that way.
The rubber roller guides help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport.Galvanized SteelGalvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped.
Those brackets are going to be sold separately with part number CE27630A.This product is made in the USA. The ones that came with the boat trailer where short and had hard time getting boat on trailer when loading especially on windy days.
I used it on my 22 foot off shore fishing boat trailer to act as a guide on the rear of the trailer when loading my boat. We want to make sure that our end cap stays in place, so the kit comes with two screws so we can do so. The roller-style guides are going to support your boat and keep it centered while you're loading it onto your trailer. All of the mounting hardware that you need for a complete installation is provided, so all that's included.
The 21-inch post measurement was measuring from the top of that arm down there to the top of the roller. One other thing, I would like for the roller to be about an inch or so closer to the boat after installation. It will help you load or launch your boat with ease even when the water levels are too low to float on or off. Our new techniques, streamlined production process and our cutting edge research and development facilities have kept our product range with the international trends.
I installed rollers on the inside and mounted my trailer lights near the top of the brackets to keep them out of the water when loading and unloading the boat. Again, you can mount it below or on top of the frame, and it gives you that option with the versatile mounting brackets. Galvanized steel, so it's going to stand up well for a long time against rust and corrosion.
