    Default HDPE for Trailer Bunks

    My carpet needs replacing. I have seen several bunk products including 50" long nylon covers in the Champion Trailer catalog. I'd have to buy 4-6 to cover my bunks at $20 a pop.

    Also I had considered putting glide sliks or other products on the bunks in the past but never liked the screwhead-thru-the-surface design. I am giving thought to using a sheet a 1/16 or 1/8" HDPE (Hi Density Polyethylene) so I can screw it on to the bunks on the sides of the bunk. Has anyone done this or have opinions on the subject?

    I had the nylon covers installed, makes loading a drive on much easier. You could certainly install a sheet yourself, nothing special about the covers that I could see. Good luck.

    Take a look at McMaster Carr Website McMaster-Carr, search for HDPE, they have it in angles and channels that would wor. i have used the 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" angles, by 1/4" thick on a buddys boat and it worked great. This was last year and it was less that $2.00 / ft, thik it came in 7 ft lngths.

    Don't know if you have used McMaster Carr before, but I think you can build the th the stuff in thier catalog, I buy from them daily at work and they are in NJ, which means UPS is the next day to MD.

    Good Luck,
    Butch
