umm just throwing this out there,
Home Death Spot (home depot for you home gamers)
and a marine supply store.
I would go to the death spot first before paying the marine tariff

Check your local upholstery shop. Many times they have scraps of marine carpet that will work for bunks. I did that the last time I redid my bunks. Usually they don't charge you much especially if they have done work for you in the past.

Olefin marine carpet from Lowes or Home Depot. It comes in six foot wide rolls, which seems like too much at first. But if you cut one set of strips for the top and sides of the bunk and another set to wrap around the bunks over that, it will be the right amount. My bunks are 12' long. Probably went 14' on the carpet.

I'd go with stainless staples.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

It should be on a big roll next to all sorts of other types of carpet. In our Lowe's it's all the way to the back. At Home Depot, it's on an aisle.

Just helped my neighbor change his tonight. He picked his up at Lowes. Brown was 1/4 the price of black, which is what he wanted. My STRONG recommendation is to remove the bunks first before recarpeting!

Depending on the age of your trailer, you may need to replace the bunk boards. I replaced two of mine when I recarpeted my bunk a couple of years ago. I just used the old boards as a template.
