Vanson Trailer Bunks - 1979 CVX 16 SS
« on: April 12, 2021, 11:47:36 AM »
Hey everyone, I'm about to tackle the bunks and rollers on my OG Vanson trailer.

It has 2x4 wood n it now (wasted of course). My gut (and the shaper of the hull) says it should have 2x6 bunks. Am I correct?

Also, what are the lengths of the bunks as there are 2 lengths on the trailer. I'm not sure I can trust the bunks on there.

Also, how about the rollers? Just basic rollers? I was thinking about v rollers for the middle.

Any and all insight would be great!

Looks like Mark has a good set up for a four bunk trailer (white trailer)

Mine is a two bunk Karavan trailer (black trailer)
Make sure the bunks extend out past transom by a inch or so to help support weight.
You can see spacing in last picture, maybe three to four inches out from inner chine.
