Just replaced the carpet on Saturday. Basically the same trailer size as th x2, ours is a 205.
Ordered off eBay a 2' x 33' piece of 20 oz grey carpet. $38 delivered to our door. I crawled under the boat and removed the majority of the staples then headed to the lake, dropped the boat and completed. Took about 1 1/2 hours. The quickest way to remove the staples was to use a floor scraper I had in my tools. It would remove most of the staples then I went back with cutters and pulled the remaining.

The bunks are treated 2 x 6 x 12 using carriage bolts.

Goes without saying, but make sure you use stainless staples...

Ultimate bunk boards dot com is where I got mine. Very satisfied with the results. I have a thread here somewhere on the install. Great product and no carpet to rot and no staples to rust or fall out. Oh and since they're plastic, no rotting of wood. My big heavy boat loads and unloads EASY and with that being said, don't unhook her until she's in the water! :-)
