Pontoon Trailers Bunk Type

VM's Bunk-type trailers, sometimes referred to as "Drive-on" or "Float-on", feature a wide base with two raised bunks that support the pontoons along either side of the boat. These trailers resemble the standard boat trailer you've probably seen before.

Towing Bunk-type trailers are more stable with towing because they are flat and wide. With this in mind, consider your typical commute when transporting your boat to and from the water. 

When Launching and loading a bunk-type trailer, you must load and launch your boat using the trailer as a ramp. This means the trailer must be submerged in the water enough to drive your boat on and off.

When purchasing a bunk-type trailer please consider your launch site. If the water is too shallow, you won't be able to launch your boat but if you have a steep enough shoreline to launch with a bunk-type trailer, this style will make your commute less stressful!

*Wheel Disclaimer
VM Custom Boat Trailers has the right to substitute wheels based off current availability. VM will attempt to contact dealer prior to making a change if time is permitting.

Due to using aftermarket wheels that are built to oversize hub bore specifications; it is crucial that dealers and customers assure proper torque specifications: VM recommends to check torque specifications within the 50 to 100 miles of towing the trailer and consistently thereafter. Torque on all Aluminum Allow Wheels should be 115 foot-pounds of torque. Do not over tighten with impact gun or breaker bar as that can cause additional damage to the wheel, lugs, and lug nuts.
