View Full Version : Trailer Advice Needed
03-31-2005, 09:46 PM
I'm looking to buy a trailer for my 22' Grady White. Does anyone have any preference for either a roller or bunk trailer? I keep my boat in the water and will only be towing it a few times a year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Tight lines.

Bunk without a doubt.... Less cr@p to go wrong and easier to maintain.....

Bunk it, you don't want rollers for something that big and heavy[wink]

Bunk trailer is the way to go. If you want to spend extra $$ go for disc brakes.

Bunk all the way. Took this boat out today solo and put it back on the trailer solo. The bunks make it real easy. Martin

In case you have not made up your mind yet - BUNK! I have seen too many boats with gouges in their bottoms where a roller has gone bad and really screwed things up. Bunks are so much easier to maintian. If you are concerned about ease for launching or retrieving, just spray your bunks with some Liquid Roller or Pledge....just be sure you keep the safety chain and winch line attached until the boat is in the water....
I have an aluminum bunk trailer under my 21 ft Robalo cuddy, and it is one heavy boat for it's size. Trailer has never given me a problem for launching or retrieving except on extremely low tides.

Bunk is the only way to go. No moving parts to mess with or rollers to replace.
