The guide-ons also make it easier to see your trailer's position when backing down the ramp. Brackets are made from galvanized steel with non-marring PVC post covers, the guide-on fits box and C-channel trailer frames measuring up to 3'' wide and 4.25'' tall. 42'' guide-ons are adjustable up to 13'' from trailer frame; 60'' guide-ons adjust out to 19". 2" diameter. Sold in pairs. Made in USA.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boat Guide-ons This is the second pair I have ordered,this time they came completely with the PVC post covers. A little bit more money, but, well worth it. Easy to install. Had to cut down the PVC's 4" each, but other than that, I had no problem installing them. Took about 30 min to install, and now i can ride my boat right onto my trailer,just like a regular bass-boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Problem solved. Bought a new alummnacraft Competitor Sport w/roadrunner trailer. Trailer was a generic fit to the boat and the guides that were on the trailer were nowhere near where they would guide the boat on as needed. Bought the verticals from Bass Pro and they were a snap to install and look great. Cut off the old guides with my L-head grinder and a little paint touch-up you would never know I had an issue. Thanks Bass Pro for the quick service and delivery, I received my order within 3 days. Good fishing to all! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great Best buy for the money, guides by jon boat on and can see post when backing down. Perfect! August 2, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for a Bass Tracker The rating may not be fair because these may fit just fine on another trailer. But you would think Bass Pro would sell a guide on for their own brand of boat/trailer. These do not fit on a Trailstar trailer/Bass Tracker with the rear step. July 10, 2013

Details: 
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 did not have that issue with mine. I would be hesitant to force it onto the metal tube though because you want the PVC tube to roll when it needs to.

A: 
My 2" I.D. PVC pipe that came with the units fit easily over the 1-1/2" square tubing. Sounds like you may have received 1-1/2" pipe or your tubing is larger. Make sure Bass knows about it, but it may be less of a hassle to buy larger PVC pipe with caps. You can cut it to the exact length you need. Be sure to drill small vent holes in the caps.

I received two pieces of 2" Schedule 40 PVC pipe. The steel square tube is 1 1/4". Should just slide over and actually rotate. If you received 1 1/2 PVC, it would not fit.

A: 
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

The length of the trailer is not the issue. The dimensions of the box or channel your frame is made of is what is important. It tells you what size frame it fits.

Yes, but I would recommend getting the longer PVC pipe. I got the 40: (39" actual). You may want to get the 48". You can always add PVC couplings with more piping if you need it longer.

A: 
I have an 1-1/2" square frame which required adding a 1/2" metal shim to make it a 2" frame. (Bass warned this would happen). There was plenty of thread on the U Bolts. This item is actually made for 2" frames and up to 3" frames. You have to criss-cross the "U" bolts on the 2" frame, but not on the 3". If you didn't have enough thread you may have had the receiver plates upside down or more than likely your threads were not as long as mine.

A: 
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.
