    Default Is it o.k.

    I just finished installing new wood and carpet on the trailer skirts, next are the bunks. The carpet is O.K. on them, is there any reason I can't re-carpet over them, for a little more padding or is it a bad idea

    Carpeting over carpet will hold the moisture, accelerate rot in both the bunk and carpet.
    I use a heavy nap indoor/outdoor (almost like a berber) carpet with stainless staples > last a loooooong time too!

    I went over mine but the first layer was only two years old over new out door wood. Still looking good after 6+ years.

    I float on so thats not a problem, I'll get the boat off the trailer and check out the situation. Probably gonna remove and replace. I don't want to change the loading process.
