WHAT ARE BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS AND WHY DO I NEED THEM?

Boat trailer guide-ons are, as the name would suggest, an accessory that helps guide your boat onto the trailer while loading and launching. They are especially useful when boating alone or in windy or rough conditions.


WHAT TYPES OF BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS ARE AVAILABLE?

There are two main types of boat trailer guide-ons: bunk-style and roller-style. Bunk-style guide-ons have padded, carpeted bunks that extend from the trailer frame to guide the boat onto the trailer. Roller-style guide-ons have sets of rollers that help guide the boat onto the trailer.


HOW DO I INSTALL BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS?

Installation methods may vary depending on the type of guide-ons you have. Bunk-style guide-ons typically require drilling holes in the trailer frame to secure the brackets that hold the guide-ons in place. Roller-style guide-ons may require different hardware or brackets, and can be mounted to the trailer frame or the trailer tongue.


CAN BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS BE ADJUSTED?

Yes, most boat trailer guide-ons are adjustable to fit your specific boat and trailer. Bunk-style guide-ons can be adjusted by sliding the bunks on the brackets and securing them in place with bolts. Roller-style guide-ons can be adjusted by changing the height of the rollers and moving them closer or farther apart.


DO I NEED GUIDE-ONS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE TRAILER?

While it is not necessary to have guide-ons on both sides of the trailer, it can be incredibly helpful. Having guide-ons on both sides can help center the boat on the trailer and prevent it from drifting to one side or the other while loading or launching.


WHAT MATERIALS ARE BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS MADE OF?

Boat trailer guide-ons can be made of a variety of materials including aluminum, galvanized steel, and stainless steel. The bunks on bunk-style guide-ons are typically made of carpeted wood or PVC.


CAN BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS BE REMOVED WHEN NOT IN USE?

Yes, boat trailer guide-ons can typically be easily removed when not in use. Bunk-style guide-ons can be unbolted and removed from the trailer frame, and roller-style guide-ons can be detached from their brackets.


DO BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS REQUIRE MAINTENANCE?

Boat trailer guide-ons require little maintenance, but it is important to regularly inspect them for damage and wear. The bunks on bunk-style guide-ons may need to be re-carpeted if they become worn, and the rollers on roller-style guide-ons may need to be replaced if they become damaged.


ARE BOAT TRAILER GUIDE-ONS NECESSARY FOR ALL BOATS?

While boat trailer guide-ons can be helpful for all boats, they are especially useful for larger boats that may be more difficult to maneuver onto the trailer. Smaller boats may not require guide-ons, but they can still be helpful in preventing damage to the boat or the trailer. Ultimately, the decision to use guide-ons will depend on the size of your boat, your experience with loading and launching, and the conditions in which you typically boat.
