Every few years I need to replace the pressure treated trailer bunks and carpeting as they split. Easy job but is there a better harder wood or other material that will keep from splitting? I'd hate to have one break and have the boat fall down on the fender. My trailer no longer gets submerged as I have the boat lifted out to keep the trailer nice. I am thinking perhaps oak. Your thoughts boys?

Venture uses kiln dried 4x6's on their larger bunk trailers. They hold up really well! Have had some here that are 15 + years old.

Don't use pressure treated!

Don't use pressure treated wood if you are trailering an unpainted (bottom paint) boat. It is possible for the treatment to leach through the carpet and stain the hull. We use kiln dried replacement bunks when replacing trailer bunks. :thumbsup:

Has anyone installed the Ultimate bunk boards? My saltwater trailer and my fresh water trailer both need new bunks and thinking of going with these.
