  • Bad fit

    I have a 94 225 br that came on a prestige trailer that doesnt fit properly. The bunks are not adjustable, i put side bunks on it to help center for now but would like a better solution to support the hull better. Has anyone ever had this issue and been able to modify the bunks to make a better fit successfully? If i have to buy a new trailer it will be awhile before i could spend that kind of money. Any input is appreciated. I will try to post a pic

        On the tag of the trailer can you see the numbers on it. It doesn't look like it was built for that boat. You could cut off the inside and outside brackets and put new ones where they should be. You can weld them back on or put adjustable ones on it. Cheaper than a new trailer.

          Cut, weld, re-paint. It's about your only option. You are right though, it clearly doesn't fit nor support the hull very well.

            I have a welded bunk Easy-Loader set up for a Glastron that my 180br rides on, they didn't get along..
            I cut each bunk off and installed adjustable bunk towers e in their place, as well as guides on the rear.

              Why can't I see Dtuck22's pics??

              Can you double the bunk boards in one spot?? Or maybe just a 1x (if 2x is too much)??

              Nevermind, I see this is an older post and the pics may have been deleted on the server...

                That looks good. Is it still holding pretty good? We'll just finish the installation of new tires and bilstein shocks on the current truck project and I'll start planning for adjustable bunk towers.

                  I used those brackets as well on another trailer and they work great.

                    Prestige usually puts what model the trailer was made for. My Prestige Trailer says 230 on the side. I would wonder if your trailer was built for a different model of boat.
