Trailer Guide Pads


Recommended Posts

My Extreme Trailer has wooden guide posts and the carpet on them is wearing away leaving the exposed wood to wreck my hull. Anyone have a good lead on some pads to replace the carpet? The only pads I have found online are made for PVC guides and my guides are square. Should I just cut some of the round pads and staple/nail/glue them?

I have the same square steel posts that used to have the carpeted wood guide pads. The previous owner removed the carpeted wood before I bought the boat. And it has the round pad with the nylon sleeve over it. It's a tight fit but goes on easier if you put a little soapy water on the foam & nylon sleeve.

In 4 yrs now I've replaced the pad twice.

I dropped some 3" round flex pvc over the square posts and put a cap on them. They work great. The flex pvc is fairly soft and does not mark the hull

I would just re carpet and go on slower...... these should not take that much abuse if you go on straight and slow
