I can see the trailer easily even without the boat.
When loading the boat on the trailer it loads easily and always dead center

Very solid guides
I should have gotten these years ago. Backing up the empty trailer is much easier (that had gotten trickier after I bought a bigger truck). Loading my boat onto the trailer is also easier, since I can now back further into the water for less cranking. They seem quite durable. And the installation was pretty easy.

These are good
From what I researched, you can't beat these for the price. I think they might bend in a high wind as most of them would. I bought 2 pairs and put them behind and in front of the fenders about 1 inch wider than the beam. With 4 posts, the boat squares up perfectly on the trailer. I have a heavy boat but with 4 of these, I think I am relatively safe in a high wind at the ramp. Cheap insurance in my mind.

The metal post is bigger across the corners than the diameter of the inside of the PVC tube. Tube won't side over the post. Should it be forced on the post by scoring the insde of the PVC tube with the corners of the metal post?
I noticed the length is slightly longer one way than the other on the metal post. They looked the same size in width but I did not measure them. I installed mine with the longer portion pointing up. The corners of the metal post contacted the inside of the pvc but I did not have to use any undue force. It will be snug since its a square post and a round pole. Once you get the metal posts on the trailer the pvc should slip over the post and slide down with very little effort
Fortunately, my install did not require this. I suppose you could run a 3/8-16 die on up the u bolts but it would cut all the zinc chromate coating off the newly threaded part leaving raw steel which is going to rust fast. I felt the hardware should have been stainless. The price seemed to indicate that they should be but aren't.
The metal tubes are open at the end, so any water that comes in should drain out, especially when driving. However, there may be a slight rise on the end that is open, so some water may remain at the elbow. If you're concerned about this, just drill an 1/8" hole at the elbow. This shouldn't affect the strength of the tube.
