How to Replace Boat Trailer Bunk Carpet How to Replace Boat Trailer Bunk Carpet
Replacing your boat trailer bunk is one of those jobs that are put off as something that can be done tomorrow. It is recommended that you replace the carpeting on your boat trailer bunk every two years when the staples come loose, otherwise the boat trailer bunk carpet develops holes.
Step 1 – Remove the Old Carpet
Remove the old carpet. Take out the stapes using a knife or screwdriver. Make sure all of the staples have been removed or hammered down to avoid injury.
Step 2 – Measurement and Cut
Measure the size of the boat trailer bunk that you will be covering with carpet. Mark the carpet to size using a marker or chalk. Cut the carpet to the correct size using a knife or scissors. Leave an extra inch or two so that you can use them in case you make an error. If you have too much material, then it can be cut shorter. Be careful because if it is cut too short, you will have to start again.
Step 3 – Staple the Carpet
Now staple the carpet in place. It is best to use an electric stapler. Staple the carpet generously so that it does not tear or come up.
