Anyone Who Has Replaced the Bunks on a Prostar Trailer....

Did you have the 2x4's planed down so that they were thinner on the inside side of the bunk? Or did you just round the corners off and leave them the same thickness all the way across? If you planed them down, how or who did you get to do it? Thanks guys!

I'm doing mine soon. Was planning on ripping them with a table saw to keep the correct contour and routing or sanding the edge.

Are you on Lake Gaston?

Yep, we're on Gaston! A good friend of mine who does a ton of wood work said his table saw wasn't high enough once he adjusted the angle the same as the original bunk boards.

left them alone - the carpet will smooth out the corners. Factory are square. I went back with 2x6 because the 2x4 had some flex in them that worried me a bit

I tapered mine and eased the edges. The hull sits flat on the 2x4's.

I have 2x6's on mine as well, didn't realize they came with just 2x4. Just put new carpet on them, didn't plane them or touch the corners, the carpet covers everything and I float my boat on the trailer so not worried about wearing out the edges.
