To completely equip a Box Style Rack with Slide Bunks - Order as Follows:

For the SUT-3BR - Order 3 each SB-2 sets

For the SUT-4BR - Order 4 each SB-2 sets

You can save on cost and do it yourself by purchasing treated 2" x 4" Boards at your local lumber yard.  Ordering an SB-KI  set gives you the hardware to bolt down two slide bunks ( use locally obtained lag screw or bolt for the wood attachment to the RB-KIT.)

Note: Installing Slide Bunks Reduces Vertical Spacing Height by 2"

NOTE 1 - Extension Modules require at least one complete rack such as the SUT-3BR or the SUT-4BR.  Modules can then be "Daisy Chained" to form horizontal rack systems to any length.   For example to configure an 18 boat rack that is 3 boats high: Order 1 each SUT-3BR Rack and 5 each SUT-3BRE Extension Modules - this will give you a complete rack that is 3 Boats High and 6 Boats Wide.


NOTE 2 - Anchor Bracket Set provides 4 L-Brackets that attach to rack legs.  Allows installer to bolt down the rack to floors, docks, or concrete pads.




The SUT-3BR   Three (3)  Boat Rack  will  typically adjust to fit boats up to 72" wide and 24" Hull Depth

The SUT-4BR   Four  (4)  Boat Rack will typically adjust to fit boats up to 72" wide and 22" Hull Depth

If your Boat's Hull Depth is greater than the Standard dimensions, You Could order the Larger Rack and leave out one set of crossbars

If You are Mixing Different Boats, You can adjust the Crossbars to different Heights for each Boat.

Smaller Boats, such as Sunfish, Laser, Force 5, Snark, Optimist, Sabot, El Toro and others will fit the Standard Adjustments.

Larger Boats Such as the Laser 2, Vanguard 15 or 420  Should use the Next Larger Size Rack.  i.e.  For 3 each  Vanguard 15 - order the SUT-4BR and leave out one of the Crossbar Sets



Optimist  Sailboat  Racks

Trailex Sailboat Storage Racks with Opti - Optimists on rack
Trailex Boat Rack with Opti Sailboats.  This is part of a 30 Boat Rack System.  Since the Racks were installed under a roof, they chose to store the Optimist Sailboats Right Side up, instead of upside down ( which is preferable when outdoors)  Slide bunks were used to make loading easy.
Racks are adjustable. This allows you to raise the lower Crossbar so an OPTI may be stored under the rack on its Dolly - as long as the dolly is less than the 58" inside Dimension . 
 Measure your dolly - if it is wider - use the SUT-3BR Standard model (which is 72" inside dimension)   
Note this does not add an extra level.  For example the SUT-3BR-OPTI Rack will still store only Three Boats Total




 Vertical Spacing is 24" (adjustable)

 Height  = 66" ,     74" with Casters Width =  60.5"
Inside =   58"
Depth  = 75.5"
