What are they called, where can you get them, and how much do they cost.
The things that slide or fit over the guide rails? ( uprights ) on the rear of the trailer.
Looks like a sleeve

Sleeve is what I'd call it and the best thing to do would be, get some PVC pipe (drain pipe, the black stuff) with an inside diameter similar to your guide pipes (obviously a bit bigger) get an 8' section cut it in half slide 'er on and yer done.

You need to be a little more specific,
Or are you talking about the foam and fabric covers that cover the PVC over the guide bar steel tubes, if so then, Guide Bar covers are what they are called. I think the MasterCraft ProShop, erkoehler @ Chicago Mastercraft, MYMC @ Mastercraft of Charlotte, maybe Jim@BAWS, has them along with Overton's, Ski Limited, Bart's. Really they can be bought about anywhere watersports equipment and ski boats are sold.

Kind of a ripoff at $30 if you ask me, but if you want them to say "MasterCraft" on them, the MC Pro shop is the only game in town. Otherwise you should be able to get them at any dealer, and get a price break in exchange for having the dealer's logo on them.

i bought some 2 days ago at the MC shop, 25 bucks for a pair, but they look good and thats considerably inexpensive in the grand scheme of MC parts and labor...

Black and white only, sorry Milk.
the lady that hand makes ski ropes & handles can make them in RED sunbrella, but I wanted something with MasterCraft or Chicago Mastercraft on them.

I can wait, RED will be a vintage color again soon enough;)

How do you keep these things from fading. My black ones look light gray -- I need to replace them soon.

How much for those Chicago Mastercraft ones :) ?

$15 a pair for the Chicago MasterCraft ones.

I'll be waiting......every boat that rolls through our shop gets the guide pole pads replaced if the owner doesn't mind.

"......every boat that rolls through our shop gets the guide pole pads replaced if the owner doesn't mind."

Erk, Every boat? Hum, I don't see a set on my trailer , and I wouldn't mind.

Chicago Mastercraft does an excellent job though. A good part of the reason I bought a MC. Their service department is second to none. They helped me out a lot with maintenance advice, and had all the parts I needed in stock. I would highly recommend to anyone if you are in the area to stop in and check them out.

Ok, now do I get them?

I wanted red, so I went with pads from my local dealer. Doesn't really match the name on my boat though. Shame I can't get the standard MC ones in red.

Mine say Bay Area Watersports. The only problem with all of the ones with the lettering is if you bump them it rubs off on the rubrail.

We have not had that problem with the newer ones. Maybe it is the extreme heat you get in the south???

Mine too!! My anal compulsive side took over though and I remedied the situation by getting a set that had NO writing on them, which I use during launching and then I use my nice MC set for when I am truckin' down the road... I like to represent!! :)

Right, I use my red MC covers when we travel to keep the chrome guide bars from getting sandblasted!

LED's were pretty inexpensive... to do the whole trailer in them it was $150. If you are interested go here: http://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/trailer_lights_led_lights.html

They are really cool, have everything you need and will actually negociate with you if you call them!

I had white vinyl ones made for the new boat, so all I did was take a peice of 2" Pipe Insulation to the local canvas place and he covered them with some scrap, white vinyl for $20....

One of those ebay guys that sells them will make them to say whatever you want. The rub is you have to buy like 80 pairs of them.

Are you talking about getting custom made guide covers? rather than the cheap vinyl ones with the letters that rub off?

I doubt it. same thing is happenin' up north. My letters are rubbing off of mine too. Not the ones I got from you, but the ones I got from the Team MC proshop website last summer.

Snoot, I am not sure that they can do custom covers from an independant place with MC logos on them. I think there is copyright issues there. :confused: Its a good idea, cuz mine are rubbing off too, but I dont think you can do that.:confused:

i had the same problem with the letters that rub off on my 04 mc. on my mc now, i turned the guide pole covers upside down, so the lettering is well below the rub rail. on the cover i bought here at my dealer the mc lettering is not centered . you can kind of see it in this pic. no more problem
