Bunk carpet on my 2008 Rolls trailer needs replacing. Thinking of doing it myself and though I would reach out for ideas of where to get the carpet. I need at least 20" in width to do the main bunks. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks!

lowes sells outdoor carpet that is 12ft wide and they will cut it however you want. It is comparable to bunk carpet but is a lot cheaper.

I have had carpet and plastic over last 35 to 40 years or so and I like the plastic better. Plastic covers slip over the bunks. It does good! Also have plastic on my lifts and it holds up great! The Lowe's deal sounds good!

I bought mine at west marine a couple of years ago and did it myself. Easy job. West Marine stocked 2 different sizes. I bought the larger size and I think it was around 50 bucks per bunk.

I used old firehouse on my Skiff trailer. It has been on 3 years and is still holding up real well.

Mission complete! Spent all of $26 on indoor/outdoor carpet at Lowes. The only thing is that it is 12oz and not 20oz like most bunk carpet. I think it will be fine, may not last 10 years like the original, but I think it will work. Also replaced jack, winch and strap, new hubs, wheels and tires, and rewired with new lights. Might have been overkill, but I ran a ground wire to all lights. 90% of the time when lights aren't working, it's a ground issue.
