Help, my trailer is missing the guide pole covers. Not the foam ones that cover the length of the guide poles, but the black rubber ones that cover then ends of the guide poles so your boat doesn't get scratched when taking it off the trailer.

Where can I get these covers?

Thanks Ric, a couple problems with that site though. The smalles quantity I can order is 750, and I don't think they make a 1.75" diameter plug of the correct style.

Maybe you could do a group buy, I could use a couple of them myself.
Wait.. who supplies these to MC ? :)

I ordered mine from McMaster-Carr, I think they came in packs of ~12. I'll look tonight to see how many I have and how much they were. Perhaps we already have a group buy :).

sorry for my hasty post, my idea was to find what you need from the site and begin to search a supplier that sold small qty

I lost one of mine too. My solution was to get a couple of dock post covers, the ones that fit over the typical 1 1/4 inch galvanized pipe.

The guides on my (2004) MC trailer are the same 1.25 inch diameter. At the top, there is a plastic ring that fits over it. I drilled out the rivets that hold them on, pulled those little rings off, and slipped one those post covers over the pipe, then rivetted them on so they won't come off again. I also slipped a couple of black zip ties at the top and bottom of the logo cover that covers the foam over the post and tightened them down against the support post so that the silly things won't slide up and off at highway speeds

You boys had best be careful talking about collective procurement and all.

Just realized what covers you were talking about. Your MC has these relatively cheap as well.
