To be honest the astro would do the job better,the stuff that's on now from indispention has lost its pile will have a look into it,of course there's always the side line with the oranges to luck forward to

I have bright green bunks on my trailer, certainly helps to guide the boat from a distance onto the trailer!

I used a 4x3m roll of green cord carpet, 24 and held up well on my first trip out yesterday!

Any kind of outdoor carpet will work. You'll need to select the actual pile (I've heard pluses and minuses as to which is better - cut pile, loop, etc. so I won't comment on that.)

Make sure you use stainless or Monel staples (if you go the staple route.)
